2022 Ford Maverick Lease Deals Canceled Amid High Demand

The 2022 Ford Maverick has been a massive hit with consumers since its launch a few months ago, taking just four days to turn on dealer lots and selling so well that the red hot Hybrid model quickly sold out, while Ford stopped taking orders for 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 powered models last month. As one might expect, the fact that Ford has had a hard time keeping up with demand for the 2022 Ford Maverick also means that the compact pickup hasn’t been eligible for many discounts and that now includes lease deals, according to a dealer incentive bulletin seen by Cars Direct.

Ford canceled all lease deals for the Maverick on February 1st, shortly after it stopped taking orders for the 2022 model year. Previously, Maverick lessees in Los Angeles could score a lease for as low as $236 for 39 months, with $2,622 due at signing, while lease money factors in that same area started at just 0.05, 3.22, and 3.47 percent on 24, 36, and 39-month leases.

Now, Ford isn’t even listing a Maverick lease payment on its website, though the pickup is still eligible to be leased with the automaker’s standard rates, which are equivalent to a 5 or 6 percent APR. Things don’t look much better for those looking to finance either, as Ford has already removed its 0 percent deal and raised rates by one percent across the board, topping out at 4.9 percent for a 72-month loan. As Ford Authority reported last month, the Maverick isn’t eligible for a $1,000 factory order discount, either.

Shoppers can still purchase a 2022 Maverick from dealer inventory, but markups have plagued a number of those models, while Ford has already raised prices for select trims of its new compact pickup. Meanwhile, those that wish to order a 2023 Maverick will be able to do so when order banks open up on August 16th, 2022, with production following at the Ford Hermosillo Assembly Plant on October 24th, though these dates are subject to change, as always.

    Doesn’t matter what spin ford puts on sales the truth is they cant make anymore right now, so why brag on a dead dog. The deception has cost stockholders money check me.

    I’m just sitting on my hands, waiting for a Mav Hybrid that I pre-ordered in November to even get on the production list. As soon as I saw Ford was actually building into the small truck niche I was interested, and the hybrid aspect nailed it – I want an economical vehicle that is useful and durable and very little else.

    I ordered a fully loaded lariat hybrid in August. Have heard nothing until last week when Ford said if I deleted the spray in bedliner and hard tonneau cover, they would build in 6 months.

    The real trouble is when Hackett was in charge, Ford did not have any long term contracts for chips. So now they will never have a reliable supply fo at least 2-3 more years until capacity increases and they can sign contracts. The other issue is Ford had not added any real production capacity in decades. If they think they are going to build more vehicles, they should have added a plant or 2 a few years ago. Hope Farley gets it all sorted out ASAP.

  5. Mike Dienst

    You report that Ford has dropped zero percent financing. When I ordered my Maverick, I was given a printout of Ford’s financing including zero percent. They said that I can get zero percent even if Ford changes their rates. I hope it’s true.

  6. Jeffrey D. Sproul

    Really didn’t ask for financing or a lease when I ordered my Maverick hybrid on July 25 since I will be paying cash. My manufacturer date has changed from the week of Feb 14 to the week of March 14 and just this past week the week of March 7. Hopefully the March 7 date sticks and it is not delayed any longer. Will get an additional $500 for being a Farm Bureau member which is not a lot but better than nothing.

    Order my mav hybrid back on October 31st. Have not heard a word from Ford. Is am I dealer has no info.

  8. Henry Ford

    Allocate limited chips to manufacture ONLY Maverick and Bronco. All other models will just have to wait.

    I wish all of you much luck. I hope the Maverick rollout goes smoother than the Bronco rollout. However, I know it’s not looking good for you right now. But, we can hope.

    I always hated my Econ classes at Penn State…but some of the stuff does really apply: Americans, hold your impulsive horses and do not even think about the Maverick and Bronco until this speed for greed passes. Make due with what you have for now.

    This is how FORD shows our country how much they don’t care what the public wants.
    I wanted one. I was told to fill out a form, tell
    FORD which Maverick I wanted. I told the salesman I would go get $15,000 to put down. I was told no. The salesmen were were
    full of crap. The next thing we here is that they weren’t making enough. We would have to wait until the summer of 2022, then 2023
    and now, who knows when, 2024 or 2025. I’m 65 soon to be 66. As far as I’m concerned Ford can shove the Maverick.

      Hi Benny, June 2021, I ordered my maverick hybrid. It came in January as promised. I was lucky, ordered before the consumer rush. This is a great super economical truck. Yesterday, drove 50 all purpose miles, got 62 mpg without even trying to conserve. I do feel your pain. I hope this improves for you. I am 74 years old, I feel like 20 driving my new truck. Good luck !!!
