2023 Ford Maverick Supply Chain Constraints Revealed

The 2023 Ford Maverick has been wildly popular since its debut, which isn’t terribly surprising for an affordable, economical, and utilitarian vehicle. After quickly exceeding Ford’s production capacity for the 2022 model year, orders for the compact pickup were shut down until 2023 Ford Maverick order banks opened up yesterday. However, that doesn’t mean the 2023 Maverick isn’t facing numerous supply chain constraints, which we’ve listed here for those looking to order one.

  • Co-Pilot360 Package (optional on XL, XLT, and Lariat trims)
  • XLT Luxury Package (optional on XLT trim)
  • Lariat Luxury Package (optional on Lariat trim; requires Co-Pilot360 package)
  • Tremor Off-Road Package (optional on XLT and Lariat trims)
  • Tremor Off-Road Package Plus Appearance Package (requires Tremor Off-Road Package)
  • Black Appearance Package (optional on XLT and Lariat trims)
  • Spray-In Bedliner (optional on XL, XLT, and Lariat trims)
  • Cargo Management System (optional on XL, XLT, and Lariat trims)
  • Hard Trifold Tonneau Cover (optional on XL, XLT, and Lariat trims)
  • Splash Guards, Molded, Front and Rear (optional on XL, XLT, and Lariat trims)

Many of these packages are new for the 2023 Ford Maverick, including the Black Appearance Package, which Ford Authority originally reported on yesterday. The list also includes the new-for-2023 Tremor Off-Road Package – which adds a unique all-wheel drive system that utilizes a twin-clutch rear-drive unit with a differential lock feature, specially-tuned springs and shocks, upgraded half shafts, a heavy-duty transmission cooler, steel skid plates, unique dark gray anodized 17-inch aluminum wheels, standard all-terrain tires, and various Tremor Orange accents to the pickup.

Also included on this list is the optional Appearance Package for the Tremor, which costs an additional $1,495 on top of the package’s $2,995 MSRP. Otherwise, many of these features were also supply-constrained in the 2022 model year, including the spray-in bedliner, most notably. In addition to the Tremor Off-Road Package, the 2023 Maverick XL is gaining standard cruise control for the new model year, as Ford Authority reported earlier today.

Meanwhile, after a delay in terms of order banks opening up, 2023 Ford Maverick production was also pushed back several weeks and is currently scheduled to begin at the Hermosillo Assembly plant in Mexico on November 14th, 2022.

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

      So you don’t like the shortage? I get it, but what good is whining about something that is outside of Ford’s immediate control? You act as though you’ve been directly affected by this. You weren’t going to buy one and you’re not going to. You’re the typical guy that just likes to complain and criticize, but never actually buys.

        Oh be quiet. Stop defending this absolute joke of a company. Even if the shortages are out of Ford’s control… The pathetic lack of communication, the miscommunication, the terrible train allocation, and the horrendous flip flopping of dates/orders are all WELL within their control.

        The simple fact of the matter is that ford has no competition right now, and they’re taking full advantage of consumers.

    Can someone please explain how the bed lining, tri fold, cargo and solar guard is related to the chip shortage? Like how is the “chain supply” effected is not like we’re importing this to begin with.

      Those are things that hold up production.They don’t put them on in the assembly line.So I’m thinking they want to produce as much as they can regardless of the options they know they will sell everything that they produce.They have to bring each unit to another area to add bed cover,splash guards etc. I think that’s what they will offer dealerships for stock inventory.They have the demand so they are wanting to ramp up supply output.That’s my opinion based on what I have read and heard.

    Why offer trim levels and packages, that you know you cannot deliver? All you are doing is getting peoples hopes up when they place an order, who are then hugely disappointed when they cannot take delivery. And you wonder why people are loosing faith in Ford.

      Being on constraint doesn’t mean not available. It means there will be fewer built and it will take longer. The Maverick has sold out in 7-days. Doesn’t seem like people are losing faith.

    You guys be careful, the Russells out there will chastise you for being critical of Ford. Russell’s last name is probably Farley and he’s afraid if daddy starts losing money, he’ll kick his worthless rump kicked out of the basement. Ford is the worst company in the US and people should not put their hard earned money down on a 2023 Maverick they may never see. Buy a new vehicle and enjoy it now. Ford’s crooked dealers are probably gonna jack up the price upon delivery anyway. Pay the price NOW, it will probably be cheaper in the long run and you’ll be enjoying your new vehicle NOW. Maybe then, Ford will stop with the foolishness.

        That’s the problem Steve Kay. I’ve had dealings with many companies and very few show more disrespect for their customers. I prefer to convince people to give their business to companies that don’t take your deposit, tell you when they want you to have your new vehicle, and then charge you thousands more than they told you the cost would be. You may choose to walk around with blinders on, that’s up to you. I hope you don’t miss the respect and money you will lose. Are you by any chance Russells brother?

          So , you’re just a ford hater. What did they do to hurt you so badly?.
          Unless you have a positive alternative ,why not just keep quiet ,knowing you are superior to everyone and sleeping well at night .
          We are the ignorants who are waiting for a product we want . There is a reason I can go and buy a truck from other manufacturers that have them on their lot, people dont want them as much as they want this one.
          So I’ll be the stupid ignoramus and you can be the superior genius, but do it silently unless you can tell us something constructive.

      Lol! I work for a Ford dealer. I do the ordering. I agree, Ford is screwed up and not communicating with the dealers either. BUT, we require 0 dollars of your hard earned $$ to order. There’s really no obligation. We figure the trucks are going to take a really long time to come in, so if customers order, if they end up not waiting or throwing in the towel we just put it on the lot and we all part friends. 0$ out of pocket.

    Are these supply chain issues unique to Maverick or Hermosillo plant? Are other Ford vehicles stalled for same reasons?

    Most supply chain issues are our own faults. Moving most of our manufacturing out of our country. Too avoid higher labor cost and Pollution registrations.

    Lots of complaining but by now none of it’s a surprise as most of you knew it going in. I ordered my 2021 Mustang Mach e Gt the day the order system opened. I took delivery in Jan 2022. It was a longer wait than I expected but I couldn’t be happier. The day I took delivery I ordered my 2022 Maverick and it just rolled over to a 2023. It will eventually get here and I will be happy with it for a long time.

    I am STILL waiting for my Ford Maverick 2022 that was ordered back in January. They have me between a rock and a hard place because I can’t buy the same truck for the price I am supposed to be getting this one for. Very frustrating and STILL waiting.

      Many of us are waiting from orders in August, a year plus. Some were cancelled while some are in limbo. I think if yours hasn’t been canceled yet, maybe a good thing?

      I’ve ordered a gasoline engine Ford Maverick XLT Lariat in January and I was so happy to find out August 24th it’s being made October 3rd as a 22 model who knows when I’ll get it though they’re saying anywhere from November 3rd to the 17th

    ordered a standard XLT (non luxury package) with the gas engine back in Dec 21. was told that the package i selected would have a 6-8 WEEK lead time, well it’s been 9 MONTHS and still nothing other than 2 emails full of excuses, no contact from dealership that I didn’t initiate, they knew less that I did or at least claimed they didn’t. now Ford has opened up orders again so they have just 2 months to build 22 models before they shift to 23 models and the rollover process will undoubtfully be a fiasco. i’m being told that i need to call the dealership and re-order but when I did yesterday they state the process is automatic once the threshold of rolling over is reached and current order holders will be first in line. can anyone with some insight (past practices) shed some light on the process, ain’t waiting another 9 months!!

      We are in a very similar situation as you. I have been doing everything possible to stay on top of our 2022 Maverick XLT eco boost ordered in November 2021. My family has been loyal to Ford for generations but I am getting worried. We have signed contract & put down deposit. The Ford customer service reps have assured me that ours has no constraints & could still be built this model year. They also reassured me that Ford will reach out both to me & the dealer. I hope they are telling the truth.

      I’m surprised orders from October on haven’t been canceled except First Editions. My dealership told me (August order) that many were canceled. I ordered 4 MONTHS before you and never heard from my dealership except when I called once.
      I called Ford and they couldn’t say much either.
      Nothing I can do except wait or cancel order. I would check out Mav Chat sites to see what others say from later orders like yours. Some have car dealers on there that give insight on what they are told.

      Tom, I work at a Ford dealership, ordering is my job, and I just completed our round of converting the 2022 Maverick orders to 2023. So how it works is partially your dealers responsibility to put a higher priority code into the order bank for those of you who are still waiting for your 2022, turning into a 2023. We made new orders as well but their priority codes will not be as high as an existing order that did not get fulfilled for 2022. It didn’t happen automatically though because we still had to call everyone and make the necessary changes so we order what they wanted since 2 colors were eliminated and 1 added, pkg changes, etc. Then we have to get new build sheets signed by the customer and get those signed build sheets to Ford by a certain date. Then it’s hurry up and wait again. We still have people that ordered a 2021 Bronco in July of 2020 (do the math, over 2yrs) and still don’t have them because the are standing firm on the hardtop. Now we are finding out hardtops aren’t happening for 2023 either! It’s a never ending fight and us dealers get the brunt of the wrath from customers for their order not coming in. We are the only ones they can get in touch with to complain. It’s a nightmare for us!

    If Ford focused more on solving their current supply chain problems and less or not at all of dreaming up and implementing more supply chain problems they might be able to solve their current supply chain problems.

    What if anything is leadership at Ford thinking?

      And you will keep waiting Dan until Ford decides when you’ll get your vehicle. And poor Tom, above, he thinks his vehicle will be delivered before any 2023 orders are. Why Tom, you will not get your vehicle until all and any orders that make more money for Ford are delivered be it 2022s or 2023s. Ford cares nothing about the customer and proves it over and over again. Farley brags about the huge order banks and he knows because of the present situation, each vehicle is making top dollar. Just like the dealerships know, you will pay the price they want, cause if you refuse, they can sell it to some idiot that will pay it. Come to your senses America and quit kissing Fords rear in.

        Mike S. after reading your many posts i’m firmly convinced that you’re a salesman for another manufacturer and hope you can lure as many frustrated order holders away from their vehicles be it Ford, Chevy or whoever. point is that we’ve selected a vehicle that appeals us and have made the attempt to purchase it, all we really want is some light at the end of the tunnel and be informed on what’s going on, we have accepted that we’ll wait and we’ve always been at the dealerships mercy, all you’re doing is kicking us while we’re down, please dude stop

          Wow Tom, are you a man or some blubbering toddler. Your post makes it sound like you believe everything Ford tells to you. I think the people on this site have been bent over by Ford and they certainly deserve better. Grow some gonads and go down to your dealer tomorrow and cancel your order, then go buy and enjoy your new whatever, That’s probably the only way that you won’t be waiting for another nine months. If enough customers did that, maybe Ford would learn their lesson. As it is, Tom, you just keep believing in the tooth fairy and Ford. Sorry if you feel that boot in your side, I’m not the one that piut you on the ground.

            I don’t think I’m missing the point. I feel sorry for you guys. That’s why I’m encouraging people to not put in an order for a 2023 Maverick. I see the frustration in you post and others as well. Do you want others to feel that same frustration? Misery loves company but if you don’t care that others are gonna get screwed over just like you then it makes me wonder about your character. If you don’t want others suffering then join me and tell people it’s not worth it. Like I said, Ford doesn’t care enough to even keep you informed about progress. Why would you want that for your fellow customer.screw me once, shame on you. Screw me twice, shame on me. Ford just keeps on screwing people but all you can think about is your order.

    Ordered a maverick Oct 2021 finally got scheduled but not til November this year. Working for a ford dealer I understand both sides very well. Supply chain issues are effecting every make not just ford. All 2022s that have not been scheduled and switch over will be price protected to what the 2022 model and will be scheduled first. Any deposit you left with a dealer should be 100% refundable if they don’t refund your money find another reputable dealer. As well if the dealer is charging a markup other thank taxes and tags and processing on your order find another dealer.

    Ford was going to build this truck in America but once Trump was removed, they couldn’t wait to move it back out of the US. If they hadn’t chased so much out of the country, maybe the supply chains wouldn’t be so screwed up. Then again, with the as much as they’ve jacked up their prices, it’s hard to imagine they’ve saved anything moving almost everything out of the country.

    Have been waiting to order a 2023 Maverick. When they became available went through the build at the dealer. MSRP for my choices came to $29,860, then the dealer added on another $5,000 mark up. Needless to say that was the end of the process for me. one of the reasons I was going with the Maverick hybrid was mileage, but with the $5,000 mark up I will have to drive the vehicle 200,000 miles just to break even.

    Ordered 22 XL in Nov. 21 Base price $19,995 $2,805 in options. With Destination & delivery a Total of $ 24,295.00 Also was told at the time there was no Dealer mark up as it was a Ford Promo deal on a new truck they were coming out with. Talked to Ford customer service 4 or 5 times and the Dealer just as often. Dealer says come in and sign a new contract and Ford will tell me then how much. My attorney says don’t sign they have to honor the first one. I’m 73 years old and to old for this sh!t. All I want is my last truck.

    Just got my Maverick ’22 lariat hybrid . Was in transit for about a month. I went through it all. Ordered it September 27, ’21. Salesman called a few months later & said they never entered my build, sorry. I had done it through Ford online. Scam ! Called Ford marketing & they said they did have it. Went to dealer & another sales guy said he couldn’t find it. I was still getting emails updated from Ford. Then, new email has my Vin # . Back to dealer & said looky here dude.
    Guess what, guess you are wrong, or I’m not giving up so you get my truck and sell it for more. Now they enter all my info & say sorry. A week before it comes in the original sales dude calls me to ask if I still want it. I said : you told me I don’t have a truck, remember?
    Told him off & go speak to the other guy. Sticker price was higher than the ordered price.
    I refused to pay that , but dealer added more fees that added 2 grand. $34,000 now from 32….. Ford corp & Ford marketing would do nothing about the situation all along saying they have no jurisdiction over dealerships.
    You can make a complaint & with enough complaints they can pull the dealership…
    As for extras : after Mexico they send it for them to be assembled for the made in USA…. Never saw or drove a Maverick until I got it. Over a year wait. But, I love it. In 2 days put 300 miles + and not even half a tank. Ford said it will be taking orders directly in the future & dealerships will only be for delivery and service.

    I ordered a 2023 hybrid lariat luxury, but I’m in no rush to get it. If I get pushed to a 2024 model it won’t break my heart. Who knows, maybe I’ll be at the front of the line and the 2024 model will have plug in hybrid.
