2024 Ford Maverick Street Performance Pickups Spotted

As the Ford Maverick enters its third model year, it appears The Blue Oval is set to introduce an intriguing package into the lineup. Our exclusive coverage of this upcoming change has already lifted the veil on what prospective buyers can anticipate, at least in a broad sense. And now, our photographers have spotted two examples of the pickup in public for the first time.

Even a cursory glance at this particular 2024 Ford Maverick reveals that it has been lowered, presumably by an inch or so. Other than that, it seems that these “street performance” pickups will not significantly deviate aesthetically from the rest of the lineup. In fact, those appear to be a slightly darker version of the 17-inch wheels that are currently standard on XLT. Also notable are the body-color side mirror skull caps, which are currently only paired with the XLT Luxury Package and the Tremor Off-Road Package.

As seen from another angle, this 2024 Ford Maverick also offers some clues on how broadly this package might be offered throughout the lineup. For starters, that’s clearly a hybrid badge on the tailgate, which means whatever street oriented package this turns out to be, it won’t be restricted to 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 pickups. That’s not a huge revelation, as a fair number of packages are available on multiple trims, including but not limited to the FX4 Package and 4K Tow Package, among others. Additionally, the trailer hitch receiver is present on this pickup, a sign that there might not be too many restrictions when buyers opt for this package or suspension setup.

2024 Ford Maverick Lariat rear three quarters

Our second featured 2024 Ford Maverick pickup is a Lariat, sporting the optional 18-inch aluminum wheels available on that trim, along with a trailer receiver hitch of its own. It also prominently display an “AWD” badge on its tailgate, which clearly means it has the 2.0L EcoBoost under its hood. Otherwise, its appearance does not seem to deviate from the 2023 Ford Maverick Lariat. At this point, it is currently unclear if the package or suspension option will come with any powertrain upgrades or changes, but we will know more in July, as the order banks are expected to open on the 17th of the month. Currently, the automaker has been producing much greater quantities of the pickup than before, but still faces a significant backlog of hybrid orders, due to battery supply chain issues.

    This reminds me of an old school 2WD Ranger. Looks cheap more than cool because they haven’t spiced up the styling to look the part. I can’t imagine they’ll get many takers.

      If it’s available as a package come the 17th I’ll be one of them. Would love more performance type modifications but if thats not possible this is at least a step towards that and you save time by not having to lower the truck.

    Lol, you can’t get any of that on Hybrid, so that’s probably the worst two examples you could’ve come up with.

    All you guys found were two dudes driving around in lowered Mavericks 😂 if you saw mine driving around would you have taken a pic too and called it a spy shot? Lmao

      You got manufacturer plates on your truck?

    Shame they won’t make an ST Maverick anytime soon. A RWD Maverick with a manual transmission would be the only Maverick I would be interested in. My dad has a hybrid auto but that isn’t for me, I will never own another automatic vehicle….even if it is FWD, as long as it has a manual it would be tempting.

    Not sure why the hybrid Ford Maverick doesn’t provide for an AWD option?
