Entering its third model year, the Ford Maverick remains as popular as ever, though unfortunately, to the point where The Blue Oval continues to struggle to build enough units of the compact pickup to meet demand. This means that Maverick customers still face a long wait when ordering that particular model, and has also led some pretty big changes for the 2024 model year, as Ford Authority has reported extensively on thus far. Now, however, those interested in creating their dream 2024 Ford Maverick virtually can now do so, as the model’s build and price configurator has officially launched.
Those that visit the 2024 Ford Maverick configurator will immediately notice a number of notable changes. The biggest, of course, is the fact that the highly-efficient hybrid powertrain is no longer standard equipment, and is instead a $1,500 option. Rather, the more powerful yet less efficient turbocharged Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost has replaced it at the bottom of the lineup due to high demand for the electrified version.
On top of that, the 2024 Ford Maverick has also received a round of price increases for the entire lineup, ranging from $805 for the base XL up to $1,460 for the XLT. Meanwhile, the Lariat has added the Lariat Luxury Package as standard equipment, along with the Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist Package, the spay-in bedliner, and black-painted side mirror caps.
Aside from these changes, the 2024 Ford Maverick Tremor Off-Road Package gains new decals for the hood and doors, while the optional Tremor Off-Road Appearance Package has been deleted, as has the SecuriCode keypad, windshield wiper de-icer, and manual sliding rear window. Late last month, Ford Authority spotted a pair of lowered Maverick pickups with manufacturer plates that seem to hint at a possible street performance variant as well. As Ford Authority reported back in April, 2024 Maverick order banks open up today, July 17th, 2023. Production of the 2024 Maverick is also expected to begin at the Hermosillo Assembly plant in Mexico on October 16th, 2023, though as always, these dates are subject to change
