Ford Maverick Production Decreased Slightly In May 2024

The highly popular Ford Maverick hit an all-time production high in April 2024, when 17,669 units of the small but mighty pickup rolled off the assembly line at the Hermosillo Assembly plant in Mexico. Following that peak, however, production of the Maverick dipped last month, modestly decreasing during May 2024.

According to data from Ford’s latest sales report, last month, 17,468 units of the Maverick were built, down one percent on a month-over-month basis. That brings total Maverick production to 64,754 units to date in 2024. For reference, in January, Ford built 16,269 units of the Maverick – 51 percent more than it pushed out in December – before plummeting in February, as Ford Maverick production tumbled to 14,316 units, a decrease of 1,953 units or or 12 percent. The downward slide continued in March as well, when 13,156 units were built, before significantly picking back up in April.

Despite the very slight decrease last month, the Maverick is still being produced in incredibly high numbers, no doubt the result of sustained high demand for the affordable vehicle. In fact, Ford Maverick sales increased 95.49 percent to 13,616 units during May 2024 when compared to the same time period one year ago. Of course, increased production means there are more units at the dealer level to sell, therefore driving demand for the compact pickup, something that Ford has certainly taken notice of.

Meanwhile, the 2024 Ford Maverick received a few changes for the new model year, including the fact that the hybrid powertrain is no longer standard equipment, while the manual sliding rear window and windshield wiper de-icer have been deleted and the keyless entry keypad is now a dealer-installed option, changes that have been accompanied by a price increase across the lineup as well.

    Where’s all the naysayers claiming the Maverick is dead because the hype died down? All the loosers who troll Ford sites praying for a fail, jealous because GM or yota or whoever can’t compete.

    Also, what happened to all those people claiming the Hyundai was the better product and more available and so on? Why did the Maverick take off like a rocket while the Santa Cruz blew up on the launch pad?

      If you test drive both of them you’ll know the answer to this question. I bought a Maverick Lariat AWD Turbo. Has more back seat room and more truck like than the Hyundai. Also, feels just as quick and gets a lot better gas mileage.

      Good heavens… Take a pill!

    Hopefully the lower production numbers indicate a higher indication of vehicles being vetted for Quality concerns and the MULTIPLE RECALLS. Very Frustrating!

    Don’t ask the ” questions or for comments ” if you don’t like the answer ! I’m a ” Ford guy since 1969 / 55 years. ” Ford ” should have been on top of this ! The multiple ” Dashboard ” noises have not been solved & taken care of by now. This is the ” third year ” of production. (? ) I ordered a 2024 & hope it’s built better than my 2022 Maverick with a common rattle in which I have.
