The Ford Maverick has been in high demand since the day it became available for customers to reserve, and FoMoCo’s order banks are still overflowing with unfilled orders. That’s part of the reason why the automaker decided to close 2023 Ford Maverick order banks after just seven days, but The Blue Oval also noted that it had received tremendous demand from new customers for the new model year as well. Now, thanks to FoMoCo’s September sales report, we know exactly how many new orders it received for the 2023 Ford Maverick.
That number is an astounding 86,000 units – which is even more impressive considering order banks were open for a mere seven days. It’s also obviously a record for the compact pickup, as well as a number that exceeds the Maverick’s sales through the month of September, which came in at 51,802 units. By the end of the year, it’s unlikely that total Maverick sales will exceed that 86,000 unit total, too.
Those that are able to secure a 2023 Ford Maverick will find a few changes have taken place for the new model year, including the introduction of the new 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 Lariat models powered by the now no-cost Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost engine now come standard with all-wheel drive, and the XLT Luxury Package has dropped several features that were formerly available.
Pricing for the 2023 Ford Maverick has increased from the 2022 model year as well, and the popular pickup is facing a host of supply constraints that will affect production and deliveries. As for production, that was pushed back recently and is currently scheduled to begin on November 14th, 2022.
