The 2022 Ford Maverick was just revealed to the world last week, but it won’t be much longer before the public can catch the new compact pickup in the flesh. Ford has announced that the Maverick will make its very first public appearance at the 2021 Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas auction, which kicks off today and runs through Saturday, June 19th.
The Maverick made waves last week when it was revealed that the new pickup will come with a standard hybrid drivetrain that’s rated to return up to 40 miles-per-gallon in the city, all with a base MSRP of $19,995, which Ford Authority was the first to report back in February. However, Ford’s 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 is also available as an option, and a loaded Lariat-trimmed Maverick can cost well north of $30k.
All-wheel-drive is available, but only with the EcoBoost, mainly because of the Maverick’s new electric motor. Regardless, even the base model shares suspension tech with the European Ford Fiesta ST, though the Maverick will only be sold in the U.S. Those interested in checking out all of the Maverick’s options can do so here, and a comprehensive pricing guide can be found here.
In addition to the Maverick’s debut, Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas will feature a number of notable Blue Oval vehicles, including a 1966 Ford Mustang once owned by Henry Ford II, a 2019 Ford GT with 21 miles on the clock, and comedian/actor Kevin Hart’s custom 1977 Ford Bronco restomod, which like every lot in Las Vegas, will be offered with no reserve price. Additionally, a special Las Vegas Raiders Edition Ford Bronco Badlands four-door will be auctioned during the event to benefit the Grant a Gift Autism Foundation and the Raiders Foundation.
