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.
