With demand for the 2022 Ford Maverick far exceeding FoMoCo’s ability to produce the new compact pickup, many orders are facing cancellation and will be pushed to the 2023 model year as a result. As such, there are quite a few people waiting on the 2023 Ford Maverick – including not only carryover order holders, but also the 86,000 people that placed a new order for one in the mere week that order banks were open. However, it seems as if they’ll be waiting just a bit longer, as 2023 Ford Maverick production has been pushed back one week, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority.
|2022 Final Production Date||2023 Production Start|
|November 14, 2022||November 16, 2022|
|As of October 24|
|November 23, 2022||November 23, 2022|
Previously, production of the 2022 Maverick was scheduled to end at the Hermosillo Assembly plant on November 14th, 2022, with 2023 Ford Maverick production kicking off two days later, on November 16th. Now, 2022 Maverick production is scheduled to end on November 23rd, 2022, with 2023 production kicking off immediately after that. In the meantime, those interested in spec’ing out the pickup can do so online, as the build and price configurator launched earlier this month.
Those in the market for a 2023 Ford Maverick will find a handful of changes have taken place for the new model year, starting with a noticeable price hike across the board, ranging from $1,095 for the XLT and Lariat up to $1,200 for the base XL trim. However, The Blue Oval did make the turbocharged Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost I-4 a no-cost option on all trims, while Lariat EcoBoost models now come standard with all-wheel drive.
2023 Ford Maverick shoppers will also be able to choose from a few new packages, including the Black Appearance Package, as well as the Tremor Off-Road Package and Tremor Off-Road Appearance Package. Additionally, XL-trimmed Mavericks have also gained standard cruise control for 2023, while the XLT Luxury Package has dropped several features that were formerly available, and the Maverick is gaining a depopulated key, as Ford Authority reported last week. However, supply constraints currently affect nearly every option available on the compact pickup.
