Since its launch last year, the 2022 Ford Maverick has been one of the hottest new vehicles on the planet, prompting FoMoCo to stop taking orders for the compact pickup back in January. With demand exceeding supply, the 2022 Ford Maverick also became one of the top 20 fastest-selling used vehicles last month, and Ford isn’t offering any sort of lease deal on new examples, either. Thus, it comes as no surprise that now, the Maverick has received a Kelley Blue Book 2022 Best Resale Value Award.
KBB’s annual Best Resale Value Awards recognize the 10 vehicles that are projected to retain the highest percentage of their original MSRP, and in that regard, the 2022 Ford Maverick tied with the Chevy Corvette for fourth place with a projected five-year resale value that’s 59.5 percent of its original sticker price. The Maverick finished behind only the Toyota Tundra at 70.2 percent, the GMC Sierra at 60.8 percent, and the Toyota Tacoma at 60.6 percent, and beat out a number of other vehicles including the Toyota 4Runner, Tesla Model X, and Jeep Gladiator.
The 10 vehicles present on this list are projected to retain their value better than 95 percent of all models currently on the market, with an average five-year retained value of 59 percent versus just 40 percent for the average used vehicle. That’s a significant amount of money in any case, perfectly demonstrating why sometimes, retained value can save new vehicle shoppers more money in the long run than things like incentives and discounts.
This award is just the latest bestowed upon the all-new 2022 Ford Maverick, which has received a number of distinctions over the past few months. That includes taking home two 2022 KBB Best Buy Awards – Best New Model and Best New Compact Truck, as well as ranking among the most considered electrified vehicles in Q4.
