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.
