2022 Ford Maverick Hybrid EPA Fuel Economy Ratings Revealed

We’ve been waiting some time for the 2022 Ford Maverick hybrid EPA fuel economy numbers to be released after FoMoCo said that the compact pickup was expected to return 40 miles-per-gallon in the city at its reveal. Ford managed to wring 50 miles-per-gallon out of one not too long ago with some conservative driving, but in spite of the fact that Maverick production and deliveries have already begun, hybrid customers have been left waiting in the wings. Until now, that is, because the 2022 Ford Maverick hybrid EPA ratings have finally been released, and it appears that they’re worth the wait.

2022 Ford Maverick Hybrid EPA Fuel Economy Ratings

City Highway Combined
2022 Ford Maverick 2.5L Hybrid FWD 42 MPG 33 MPG 37 MPG
2022 Ford Maverick 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 FWD 23 MPG 30 MPG 26 MPG
2022 Ford Maverick 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 AWD 22 MPG 29 MPG 25 MPG

The hybrid Maverick is officially rated to return 42 miles-per-gallon in the city, 33 on the highway, and 37 combined. Unsurprisingly, that makes it the most fuel-efficient hybrid pickup on sale today, one that will travel over 500 miles on a single tank of gas. It’s capable of achieving these impressive numbers thanks to Ford’s 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle hybrid engine, electronic continuously variable transmission, and a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery, with a combined output of 191 horsepower and 155 pound-feet of torque.

“Our team set out to redefine what a truck could be with Maverick, and we’ve done that with an EPA-estimated 42 mpg city that beats the 2022 Honda Civic 1.5-liter 4-cylinder automatic (variable gear ratio) gasoline engine,” said Chris Mazur, Ford Maverick chief engineer. “At the same time, Maverick offers room for five and plenty of towing and hauling for weekend trips or do-it-yourself projects.”

As Ford Authority recently reported, the Maverick equipped with Ford’s 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 delivers impressive fuel economy on its own, good enough to beat out the Hyundai Santa Cruz by a significant margin with numbers that are virtually identical to the Ford Escape and better than the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport.

In addition to releasing this fuel economy data, Ford also announced that the Maverick hybrid will begin shipping in December, with the first customer deliveries expected in January. This delay is due to the fact that the required state and federal emissions certifications have not yet been completed. Due to high demand, Ford expects that all Maverick hybrid models will be fully reserved by early November, at which time ordering will close until next summer.

    So when are they going to make enough of these to reasonably meet demand, and when are they going to make a PHEV version?

    1. Materialman

      With Biden in Office and 6 dollar gas on the way, they won’t be able to make them fast enough. Meanwhile, the huge profit full size pickups and SUV’s will plunge in sales. Between the chip shortage and Biden, the car makers are in big trouble.

    Great MPG with rising gas prices this is going to be one of the top showed vehicles on the market

    It is about time. I ordered my Maverick XLT hybrid on July 25 and have not heard anything. Hopefully I will get it early next year.

    How about a small displacement diesel in the Maverick to boost highway mpg over 50 mpg

  5. Gary Law

    Why don’t you say anything about the Ford escape. I’ve had mine ordered for 3 months now and haven’t heard a word. I ordered the titanium plugin and no one seems to know anything about when I’m going to get it.
