Ford Maverick Hybrid Once Again Among Most Satisfying Cars

The Ford Maverick has long been a favorite not only among budget-conscious shoppers seeking an affordable and economic pickup, but also Consumer Reports as well. That organization has dubbed the Maverick the best-selling hybrid pickup of 2023, one of its top picks with an MSRP under $35k, as well as one of the most satisfying vehicles on the road not once, but twice – and its most satisfying pickup, period. Now, CR has once again lavished praise on the Ford Maverick Hybrid after naming it one of the most satisfying vehicles one can buy today for the third time.

As is always the case, CR‘s list of the most satisfying vehicles comes straight from its owner surveys, and more specifically, one particular question – “given the opportunity, would you buy or lease this vehicle again?” The percentage of owners that respond with a “definitely yes” are what constitutes a vehicle’s overall score, with responses coming from more than 300,000 members and owners.

In that regard, the Ford Maverick Hybrid finished seventh on this particular list with a score of 83, behind only the Chevy Corvette (93), Rivian R1T (88), Mazda MX-5 Miata (88), Lexus NX PHEV (87), BMW X5 (85), and Rivian R1S (84), while the compact pickup ranked ahead of the Kia Telluride (82), Honda Pilot (82), and Hyundai Ioniq 6 (81) to close out the top 10.

It’s an interesting mix for certain, but as CR points out, this list is typically dominated by sports cars and fuel-efficient hybrids and plug-in hybrids. In particular, CR found the Ford Maverick Hybrid to be appealing for not only its affordable price tag and efficiency, but also, its high road test scores and predicted owner satisfaction, while the pickup also received high marks for its minimal impact on the environment.

    Why don’t you write an article about the Maverick and other Hybrid’s having Battery saver issues. Ford fix has been to replace the battery and I have had three new batteries since I got the Maverick in July. Ford has not addressed or acknowledged they have an issue.

      agree, makes you wonder, if you go on any of the Maverick forums it is filled with battery issues on the hybrids, what use is it to get 40 mpg if it does not start?

    love the truck, hate the battery, it is the 21st century and your battery should not be going dead all the time.

    I love my truck that I have had for 2 weeks now after waiting A YEAR AND 3MONTHS for.
    But that survey question has to be tempered with. “Would you wait another year and a half for another Maverick?”
    I would not again be played for a chump for a year and a half by Ford.
    Again, I love the truck itself

    I’m extremely pleased with my 23 XL hybrid. I did have the sleep mode problem, but it was fixed and hasn’t reappeared in the last 8k miles.
