The 2024 Ford Maverick order banks open soon, and in the lead up to that significant date, we’ve been getting more details about what the upcoming model year changeover will mean for customers. As Ford Authority previously reported, some 2023 Maverick orders will most likely be pushed to 2024, as the company is facing supply chain issues that prevent it from producing hybrid models. That issue has seemingly also resulted in the hybrid engine being dropped as the standard powerplant in favor of the 2.0L EcoBoost I-4. Now sources have confirmed that changes to the Lariat that have surfaced online are accurate, with the trim adding previously optional packages and features as standard.
The biggest change coming to the 2024 Ford Maverick Lariat involves the Lariat Luxury Package, which becomes standard. That alone represents a huge shift from 2023, due to the contents of the package and the higher base price those features will now add to every Lariat-equipped pickup. As a reminder, the Lariat Luxury Package includes the following:
● 4-Way Headrest (Front)
● 400W Inverter (Cab + Bed Incl Cubby Cover) w/ USB Console Rear
● B&O Sound System by Bang & Olufsen, 8-Speakers including Subwoofer, Voice-Activated Touchscreen Navigation System with Pinch-to-Zoom Capability, SiriusXM
Traffic and Travel Link
● Electronic Brake Boost for 2.0L EcoBoost
● Full-Size Spare std w/ 2.5L Hybrid Engine
● Heated Mirror
● Heated Seats
● Heated Steering Wheel
● LED Box Lighting
● SiriusXM radio
● SYNC 3
– Enhanced Voice Recognition Communications and Entertainment System
– 8” LCD Capacitive Touchscreen in Center Stack with Swipe Capability
– 911 Assist
– Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
– Smart-Charging USB ports – two (2)
● Trailer Hitch Receiver w/ 4-Pin Connector
● Windshield Wiper De-Icer
● Wireless Charging Pad
Aside from the Lariat Luxury Package, the Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist Package will also be standard on the 2024 Ford Maverick Lariat. That package currently includes adaptive cruise control, evasive steering assist, and rear parking sensors. For 2023, it required customers to order the Lariat Luxury Package and the Ford Co-Pilot360 packages, but both of those are standard for 2024 too. Two other changes will also be made for all Lariat models: the spay-in bedliner is now standard, and body-color side mirrors caps are being dropped in favor of black-painted side mirror caps.
These changes practically guarantee that the 2024 Ford Maverick Lariat will be more expensive than the current version, although the extent of the change will not be known until pricing is officially released, as the company may not fully pass along the cost of the packages that are currently optional. As it stands, the addition of the Lariat Luxury Package ($2,610), Ford Co-Pilot360 Package ($650), and Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist Package ($750) adds $4,010 to the price of a base 2023 Lariat. Aside from these changes, a street performance-oriented package appears to be in the cards for XLT and Lariat as well.
