While deliveries of the 2022 Ford Maverick equipped with FoMoCo’s 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 began months ago, the 2022 Ford Maverick Hybrid was delayed due to the fact that required state and federal emissions certifications had not yet been completed, as Ford Authority reported back in October. At that time, the automaker said that 2022 Ford Maverick Hybrid production would begin in December, with the first deliveries taking place in January. However, it appears that Ford beat that timeline by a few weeks.
The news comes to us from Ford North America Product Communications director Mike Levine, who recently retweeted a message from Long McArthur Ford stating that one of its customers is set to take delivery of his Maverick Hybrid tomorrow.

Some Maverick Hybrid order holders recently received a letter from Ford informing them that that they will receive a free Ford Integrated Tether System (FITS) accessory kit after they take delivery of their pickups, which includes a storage bin, cupholder, phone cord organizer, bag hooks, and dividers for the under-seat storage area.
Meanwhile, those that don’t already have a Maverick Hybrid order in the system will have to wait until next summer to order a 2023 model, as the 2022 version of the fuel-sipping pickup is already sold out. Meanwhile, Mavericks powered by Ford’s 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 have proven to be incredibly popular as well, turning in just five days on dealer lots even though in-transit inventory increased significantly in the month of November, as Ford Authority reported earlier this week.
So far, the Maverick has proven to be a massive hit with Millennials and Gen Z, as over one-quarter of Maverick buyers thus far are between the age of 18 and 35 – more than double the overall industry rate of 12 percent for that age group. As Ford Authority previously reported, the new compact pickup is also quite popular with critics, as well as owners of Blue Oval sedans, first-time truck buyers, and female shoppers, too.
