- The 2022 Ford Maverick will debut tomorrow at 6 a.m. ET on Ford's YouTube channel and social media outlets.
- The Maverick is a new small pickup truck that will slot in below the mid-size Ranger in Ford's lineup.
- It will go on sale in the fall, and we expect it to be priced well below the Ranger.
Ford is unveiling its new compact pickup truck tomorrow, Tuesday, June 8, at 6 a.m. ET, and it will go on sale in the fall. You'll be able to watch the debut live on Ford's YouTube channel or its social media outlets in the morning.
Ford released a teaser video for the new pickup last week, and we spotted a hybrid badge on the tailgate. We also expect the Escape's 250-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder to be an option, since the Maverick will share a platform with it and the new Bronco Sport crossover. It'll have a unibody construction rather than the Ranger's body-on-frame structure and compete with the Honda Ridgeline and upcoming Hyundai Santa Cruz.
The new truck will be built alongside the Bronco Sport at Ford's plant in Hermosillo, Mexico, and arrive in the fall.
We'll know more early tomorrow morning, but if you're not an early riser, check back here for all the details on the 2022 Ford Maverick.
