Watch The 2022 Ford Maverick Reveal & Live Stream Right Here

For months now, Ford Authority has reported extensively on the 2022 Ford Maverick, revealing a number of details about the new compact pickup and showing off a number of prototypes captured via spy photos. Now, we’re on the eve of the 2022 Ford Maverick reveal, which is scheduled to take place tomorrow, June 8th, 2021, at 6 am EST. For our readers’ convenience, we’ve embedded the 2022 Ford Maverick reveal video below.

The 2022 Maverick will be Ford’s first compact pickup since the previous-gen Ford Ranger was discontinued following the 2011 model year. As such, it will be noticeably smaller than the current, mid-size Ranger, though the base model will also be quite a bit less expensive, with a starting MSRP of less than $20k, as Ford Authority exclusively reported earlier this year. That will make the Maverick the most affordable new Ford pickup – around $4,000 less than the least expensive current Ranger.

That sub-$20k base Maverick will be equipped with incandescent exterior lighting, steelie-style wheels, a lower-cost, twist-beam rear suspension, and a unique exhaust setup, all in a standard front-wheel-drive configuration. An all-wheel-drive version with an independent rear suspension will also be available, as will a more rugged, off-road-oriented trim level.

The 2022 Maverick will be powered by a hybrid powertrain option, as Ford Authority exclusively reported this past March, or Ford’s 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 mated to the automaker’s eight-speed transmission.

The new Maverick will be built alongside the Ford Bronco Sport at the Ford Hermosillo Assembly Plant in Mexico. The pickup will share the Ford C2 Platform with the new crossover and the Ford Escape, and is expected to enter production in July. We’ll learn all the details about the Maverick tomorrow morning, so be sure and bookmark this page and come back at 6:00 am EST for the big reveal.

We’ll be on hand for the Maverick’s reveal tomorrow, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Maverick news and 24/7 Ford news coverage.


Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    You need to get that exhaust pipe tucked up under the truck!

  2. Roy Chile’s

    The AKA Maverick baby Sport Trac was leaked last week it looks nice just has the wrong name. For a company that don’t want to sale cars let see if Ford has the balls to build a RS model with AWD 6spd and 350hp

    “BUILT TO DEFY EXPECTATIONS”………..what the heck does THAT mean?

    1. Robert W

      It means “Whatever you expect, this will defy you from ever getting it.” The word “defy” is the opposite of “meets or exceeds”.

      This product deserves a better tag line.

    Ford did hit one out of the park this time. The Santa Cruz will be a bit more expensive, and Chevy totally missed a chance to turn the Trailblazer into a baby El Camino.
