Upcoming Ford Maverick Will Come With A Small Sliding Rear Window

Brett Foote Aug 11 2020

 

The sliding rear window has been a staple feature of pickup trucks for decades. In the old days, drivers had to reach back and open them manually, but in recent years, even the humble sliding rear window is power-operated, a good thing given the popularity of large, four-door pickups these days that make it impossible to reach back and open the rear window by hand. And now, Ford Authority has learned that the forthcoming Ford Maverick compact pickup will also have a small sliding rear window, just like the larger Ford F-150 and Ford Ranger trucks.

Much like traditional sliding rear windows, the Maverick will feature a small center window that slides to the side for extra air flow.

Back in 2018, Ford Authority exclusively reported that Ford had begun developing a small unibody pickup that would slot underneath the Ranger. Then, in May, we learned that the new pickup would be called the Maverick. Recently, a few key details have emerged about the compact pickup, including a leaked picture of its tailgate. Meanwhile, recent spy photos did their best to disguise the Maverick as an SUV.

The Maverick will ride on the Ford C2 platform, the same architecture that underpins the Ford Bronco Sport and the 2020 and newer Ford Escape. As Ford Authority previously reported, the Maverick will also share styling cues with the Bronco Sport, including its flat hood and upright front end.

The Maverick will be produced alongside the Bronco Sport at the Ford Hermosillo Assembly Plant in Sonora, Mexico. Pricing is expected to start around the $19,000 mark, and the very first units are expected to begin arriving in roughly two years, if not slightly sooner.
