As Ford Authority reported earlier this month, the 2024 Ford Maverick lineup is ditching its SecuriCode keypad, which was previously included as standard equipment on the 2023 Maverick XLT and Lariat. While this move didn’t come as a huge surprise given the fact that other Blue Oval models have also lost this feature in recent years, some found the news to be a bit of a letdown, regardless. However, it seems as if those wanting the SecuriCode keypad on their 2024 Ford Maverick pickup will still be able to get it, albeit as a dealer-installed option.
2024 Ford Maverick owners will be able to get the SecuriCode keypad installed by their local dealer, as this feature has now shown up in the vehicle’s build and price configurator. However, there is currently no price listed for the option, though it costs $95 on the 2023 Ford Ranger, giving us a ballpark estimation as to what owners may need to dish out.
Aside from this change, the 2024 Ford Maverick has received quite a few updates for the new model year. The biggest is the fact that the hybrid is no longer the standard powertrain, as it has been replaced by the turbocharged Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost I-4, while the thrifty electrified powerplant now costs an extra $1,500. The 2024 Maverick has also dropped its manual siding rear window and windshield wiper de-icer, too.
Meanwhile, the Lariat Luxury Package is now standard on that particular trim, along with the Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist Package, while the Tremor has gained new decals while ditching the optional Tremor Off-Road Appearance Package. In terms of exterior colors, the 2024 Ford Maverick loses four of them but gains new options such as Terrain and Azure Gray, all while getting a price increase across the board.
