Back in October, FoMoCo revealed that the incredibly fuel-efficient 2022 Ford Maverick Hybrid was nearly sold out, and that the automaker expected that particular model to be completely spoken for by early November. It took a little longer than expected, but now, it appears that the 2022 Ford Maverick Hybrid is in fact sold out, according to a bulletin that was recently sent to Ford dealers. Customers that want a Maverick Hybrid will now have to wait until next summer to order a 2023 model.
It isn’t just the Maverick Hybrid that’s proven to be a hot item among those looking for a fuel-efficient and affordable pickup, as models powered by Ford’s 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 have been turning in just five days on dealer lots since that version launched back in September. The non-hybrid pickup is still more fuel-efficient than its chief rival – the Hyundai Santa Cruz, and less expensive in most configurations, to boot.
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.
Meanwhile, the 2022 Maverick Hybrid will begin shipping in December with the first deliveries expected in January. Ford recently sent out letters to order holders informing them that they would receive a free Ford Integrated Tether System (FITS) for the inconvenience. While those customers await delivery of their new compact pickups, the Maverick Hybrid has also been racking up accolades, including a spot on Kelly Blue Book’s most considered electrified vehicles list, as well as being named Green Truck of the Year.
