Among a handful of other changes taking place as the compact pickup enters its third year of production, the 2024 Ford Maverick is shuffling around its exterior color palette a tad, dropping four hues – Area 51, Avalanche Gray, Alto Blue Metallic Tinted Clearcoat, and Cyber Orange Metallic Tri Coat – while also adding some new ones in the form of Azure Gray and Terrain, the latter of which is simply Desert Sand with a different name. Now, Ford Authority has spotted a 2024 Ford Maverick pickup covered in Terrain for the very first time.
Terrain is listed in the Blue Oval’s catalog under paint code VA, and is a no-cost option for the 2024 Ford Maverick XLT and Lariat trims, though it is not available at all on the base XL trim. Terrain can be spec’d in conjunction with a variety of interior colorways as well, including Navy Pier/Medium Slate, Desert Brown, Black Onyx, and Black Onyx with the optional Tremor Off-Road Package.
In addition to this exterior color update, the 2024 Ford Maverick is undergoing a handful of changes 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 The biggest is the fact that the hybrid is no longer the standard powertrain, as it has been replaced by the turbocharged Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost I-4, while the thrifty electrified powerplant now costs an extra $1,500.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, and is ditching its SecuriCode keypad, though that feature can still be installed by a dealer for an extra cost.
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. As for pricing, the 2024 Maverick lineup recently received an increase across the board as the compact pickup remains as popular as ever.
