2022 Ford Maverick Lariat FX4 Build By Air Design: Live Gallery

The 2022 Ford Maverick is still a brand new vehicle, with just a few thousand landing in customers’ driveways over the last several of months. Regardless, the compact pickup is already a hit, turning in just four days as the Hybrid variant is already sold out until 2023. With such high demand, it’s only natural for customers to begin modifying their Mavericks over the coming months and years, and this 2022 Ford Maverick Lariat built by Air Design for the 2021 SEMA Show is a nice example of how customizable the pickup really is.

Air Design’s 2022 Ford Maverick Lariat was designed to appeal to the everyday enthusiast who wants a truck that looks great and is also quite capable. The former bit was accomplished by adding a slew of brand new exterior upgrades that were designed using CAD modeling and CNC prototyping.

Starting out with a 2022 Maverick Lariat equipped with the FX4 Off-Road Package, Air Design created and added its own Ford Accessories fender flares, door moldings, a tailgate applique, and hood scoop. Those parts are complemented by a BedRug carpeted bed liner, a Snugtop sport bed cap, and custom two-tone paint laid down by Royal Collision Center.

This Maverick sits a bit higher thanks to a 1.5-inch leveling kit from Belltech, which also makes room for a set of 18×9-inch Raceline 401B Areo wheels wrapped with 265/65 Toyo Open Country all-terrain tires. Power for the pickup comes from Ford’s 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 engine, which is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Air Design also gave the cabin of this Maverick a bit of an overhaul, adding Ford Accessories all-weather floor mats, a roadside assistance kit, black chrome door sill guards, rear under-seat storage bins, Sundial window tint, and a portable fridge/freezer combo. The end result is a pretty unique- and rugged-looking Maverick, which we imagine will appeal to many.

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.

    In a FORD written article, why are the bragging about some outside company makeover. Are they not happy with their own design, and why do they have to advertise for the $10k in mods? I feel the is slap in the face for the Maverick designers. Let the hate mail begin.
    But me careful what you say, I am very much interested in getting one. Once the supply becomes available without price gouging. I can’t bend over too far. 😀

    Not sure it’s a slap in the face when Ford stresses how they designed it for customizing. I have a 1st Edition but don’t have a lot of plans to customize it. Its a great truck, traded a ’14 F150.

    I am selling my ’18 F150 Platinum and I have a Maverick XLT 2.0 with lux pkg. on order. I was in the construction industry for 30 years and drove many trucks, but of course all full size. I retired a month ago and wanted something fun to drive with good MPG. The Maverick was timed perfectly. The Maverick is, and will continue to sell like hotcakes!

    Ford is trying to be The Great Value Land Rover so bad and it’s costing them their Integrity & Brand Identity.. Why do they build vehicles that compete with each other? Edge/Bronco Sport/Escape/Mach-E. Just add One Sedan(Fusion) & One Hatch(Focus ST). It’s like they’re trying to piss their Loyal Customers Off! Well it’s working!✌🏽
