Listen To The 2022 Ford Maverick EcoBoost Startup & Exhaust: Video

Ford Authority recently spent some time with the 2022 Ford Maverick EcoBoost and subsequently answered your questions about the popular small pickup. During that time, we captured some video of what the stock exhaust system sounds like on cold startup and while revving.

At start-up and idle, the exhaust thrums softly, but it still speaks to the perky Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost engine beneath the hood of the Maverick. The exhaust note gets a bit louder while revving, throwing down a decent growl for a four-cylinder engine. It probably won’t turn many heads, but the driver is sure to find it satisfying.

As a reminder, the boosted four-cylinder is rated at 250 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque and bolts to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy comes in at an EPA estimated 23 miles-per-gallon in the city, 30 on the highway, and 26 combined.

Ford Maverick

The MSRP for a base 2022 Ford Maverick EcoBoost, complete with these standard 17-inch steelie-like rollers, is $19,995. This particular Maverick has $2,410 in options, which – combined with the $1,495 delivery fee, brings the total MSRP to $23,900.

Check out the 2022 Ford Maverick XL exhaust sound in our exclusive video below.

Since launching, the Ford Maverick has proven to have a high conquest rate, particularly among former Honda Civic drivers and first-time pickup buyers. The small pickup has collected several notable accolades, including the 2022 Wards 10 Best Interior and UX award, and it has outsold the larger Ford Ranger by a landslide in recent months, the latter being a result of Ford prioritizing Bronco production over that of the Ranger at the Michigan Assembly Plant.

The Maverick, which is made at the Ford Hermosillo plant in Mexico, has also been dominating its competitive segment, outselling the Hyundai Santa Cruz by an absolute landslide in the first quarter of 2022.

We’ll have more on the Maverick soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Maverick news and 24/7 Ford news coverage.

    smh… they apologized for the “pulsating” but didnt for putting background music in a video whose sole purpose and description is relaying the sound of the exhaust.

    1. Larry S.

      Lol, exactly!! 🤣

  2. Gary Phillips

    Sounds like an overworked sewing machine, actually. But I’m no fan of any exhaust noise and I bought the hybrid instead which seems much more quiet generally plus it’s getting much better gas mileage for me.

    1. Jim V

      I received delivery on my F-150 King Ranch FX-4 Hybrid on 7-28-2021 and had 24.34 mpg for the 1st 2,540 miles, at that point I started pulling a 8,000 pound travel trailer. I hope you are as happy with your F-150 hybrid as I am with mine.

    It has utility but I still want a short cab, long bed in a small truck.

    1. P.R.Ford

      The Chinese probably make something for you.

    I ordered my Maverick in September last year, when are you going to start building the higher end models. I’m not getting any younger you know.

    1. Vince

      I’m right there with you, originally ordered around labor day, salesman forgot the 4k tow package, I’ve been waiting since September 29th☹️

  5. William Wagner

    I have been looking for the hybrid like the mileage but cannot find one

  6. David1958

    I predict the Ecoboost engine will die before it gets 100,000 miles on it.

  7. P.R.Ford

    I guess we’re finally running out of things to talk about when we’re down to demonstrating the exhaust sounds of a 4 cylinder vehicle.

  8. Rob

    It would sound better with a soundtrack of Hells Bells blaring out from the exhaust!

  9. Marty

    How about giving the buying American public a chance at buying one without 1 7,00 dollar “market adjustment” price? I guess this the “future” of cat buying in America, “take it or walk”

  10. Tr

    Best truck I ever owned!!! Hybrid not turbo!

  11. Wm Agger

    Make a Maverick that’s both all wheel drive and hybrid, and not only I will buy one but also a whole many more who live in the snow country of the upper Midwest will.

  12. John

    Junk. The End. Lucky the engine made it through recording without dropping a valve. Ford strikes again with the junk they build now.
