While the chip shortage has wreaked havoc on Ford’s production for the bulk of 2021, there have been some signs of improvement in recent weeks. As Ford Authority reported yesterday, 2021 Ford Bronco in-transit inventory improved significantly in November, as did sales. However, it wasn’t the only improvement in that regard, as 2022 Ford Maverick in-transit inventory also grew quite a bit month-over-month, too.
According to FoMoCo, 2022 Ford Maverick in-transit inventory grew by 106 percent in November, a significant increase over September. Ford sold another 2,582 Mavericks last month, which brings the pickup’s total to 7,228 units since its October launch. As the sold-out for 2022 Maverick Hybrid begins deliveries, the new compact pickup continues to turn on dealer lots in just five days and is selling for significantly more than MSRP in some cases as demand continues to outpace supply.
The 2022 Ford Maverick – a North American Truck of the Year finalist – is both cheaper and more efficient than its chief rival, the Santa Cruz, and is even less expensive than the 2022 Honda Civic in most cases, all while offering more utility than both, along with giving owners the ability to complete a variety of DIY projects that make the pickup even better.
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.
