2024 Ford Maverick Ditches Four Exterior Colors

There are significant changes on deck for the 2024 Ford Maverick. In fact, as reported by Ford Authority, the compact pickup will ditch the 2.5L I4 hybrid engine as its standard powerhouse and will instead harness the 2.0L EcoBoost I4 as standard. The Lariat trim, meanwhile, will also change significantly, gaining quite a few standard packages and features that were previously optional, while the off-road-focused Tremor will replace its optional appearance package with standard decals. The compact pickup will also lose the SecuriCode keypad across the board. Now, another change has been revealed for the Maverick, as it will no longer offer four exterior colors that were previously available for the 2023 model year.

The following exterior colors, previously available on 2023 Maverick XL, XLT and Lariat trims, will no longer be available on the 2024 Ford Maverick (relevant paint codes listed in parentheses):

  • Area 51 (KU)
  • Avalanche Gray (DR)
  • Alto Blue Metallic Tinted Clearcoat (L3)
  • Cyber Orange Metallic Tri Coat (SB)

Meanwhile, the following colors will carry over from the 2023 model year:

  • Atlas Blue Metallic (B3)
  • Cactus Gray (NE)
  • Carbonized Gray Metallic (M7)
  • Hot Pepper Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat1 (EA)
  • Iconic Silver Metallic (JS)
  • Oxford White (YZ)
  • Shadow Black (G1)

Considering the changes and updates on the way for the 2024 Ford Maverick, it’s no surprise that it’s more expensive than the outgoing 2023 model year compact pickup. The base XL trim now starts at $23,400, up $805; the XLT trim starts at $26,315, increasing $1,460; and the Lariat now costs $34,855, up $270. Note that these prices do not account for the $1,595 destination and freight charges.

As Ford Authority reported back in April, 2024 Maverick order banks opened on July 17th, 2023. Production of the 2024 Maverick is expected to kick off at the Hermosillo Assembly plant in Mexico on October 16th, 2023.

    My order form from Ford says silver is not available, but Terrain and Azure Gray. Kind of boring with 3 grays

      I agree! I even told them so at the dealer-that it’s an awful lot of gray and not much color.. They discontinued The area 51 gray which is a pretty cool color! Replaced it with an add-on new color which strongly resembles area 51 gray with sparkle in it..

    They drop area 51 and add one that’s almost identical and of course add $495 what a ripoff.

      YES!!!!
      At first I thought they changed the name of the color because in the picture it looks absolutely the same. up close It looks like a slightly girlier version of the same color with sparkle in it..

    F . Ford they won’t make mine for the second year in a row now. I ordered a fully loaded Cyber orange two years in a row now and both times Ford told the dealership they’re not going to build it and gave me my $1000. Commitment payment back. Screw Ford they’ve lost a diehard ford fan and owner.

      I am still awaiting my 2023 Lariat ordered in 10/2022. I have not received any acknowledgement from ford except phone calls initiated by me. Still no VIN or schedule as of today 08/09/23. I have decided to keep my order open and then order a toyota stout
      and take whichever comes in first. I am reluctantly considering throwing a Rampage into the mix.

    Dang! That orange was a nice color too! Is that what the dealer meant by some options that I picked resulting in my truck not being built?! Why offer options and take pre-orders if they are going to only build the generic most popular packages?! I want the console vault for my gun, But apparently that option is a “build preventer”!😠

    My Roseburg, Oregon told me in July,2023 that my Carbonized Gray (M7) color option will not be a 2024 color. I received my 2024 Maverick production date last week. I now see Carbonized Gray is in fact a 2024 color. I visited the Roseburg Manager Friday, August 25, he was not receptive to a change order to change my color to my original Carbonized Gray. He said no changes after a Vin is issued, production scheduled in 7 weeks. Manager not interested in any attempt in correcting Ford Motor Co. Reconsideration of the addition of the Carbonized Gray color. This the fault of the Ford Co. Refusal of a simple color change is contrary to CUSTOMER SERVICE or is it the way of the future? JB Maverick order D 917 Production October 16, 2023.
