Ready or not, here comes the 2024 Ford Maverick! This year, Ford’s game-changing compact truck delivers more standard power, along with a strong performance and a spacious, comfy cabin. Let’s take a closer look at everything the latest Maverick can bring to your drive.
- For 2024, Ford’s popular compact truck shuffles its powertrain options. The more powerful turbocharged engine is now standard, and the thrifty hybrid is now optional.
- Depending on powertrain and equipment, the hybrid version of the Maverick earns up to 37 mpg combined!
- The Maverick’s three trim models offer varying levels of comfort and technology. On the top-trim Lariat, high-end features like adaptive cruise control are available.
- We recommend ordering your Maverick as soon as possible, because these compact trucks have been so popular that Ford can barely keep up with demand!
What are the 2024 Ford Maverick updates?
This new Maverick offers the same engines as last year, but availability has changed. The 2024 Maverick comes standard with last year’s optional engine, the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. For drivers who want more speed and greater towing capabilities, this is great news. This turbocharged engine is also the only one available with all-wheel drive, helping you travel muddy trails without a hitch.
Since the turbocharged engine is now standard, that means the Maverick’s hybrid powertrain is now optional. The hybrid gear is unchanged from last year; you just have to pay a little extra for it. But the upgrade is well worth it, especially if you want to prioritize fuel economy.
How many miles per gallon does the 2024 Ford Maverick get?
With the available hybrid powertrain, your Maverick can earn up to 37 mpg combined (40 city/33 highway)! With the more powerful turbocharged engine, EPA ratings reach up to 25 mpg combined (23 city/30 highway).
Although it’s not quite as thrifty, the standard turbocharged four-cylinder engine is a better option for many drivers. Not only does it provide more power, with 250 horses, but it’s also the only Maverick engine available with all-wheel drive. Properly equipped, a Maverick with this engine can tow max loads of 4,000 pounds.
The 2024 Maverick’s standard powertrain includes:
- Turbo 2.0L four-cylinder engine (250 hp, 277 lb-ft) and
- Eight-speed automatic transmission
- Front-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive
Not only is the available hybrid powertrain very thrifty, but it also gives you plenty of power. Like Mavericks with the turbocharged engine, hybrid trucks can haul payloads weighing up to 1,500 pounds. With the proper equipment, max tow ratings reach 2,000 pounds.
The optional 2024 Maverick hybrid powertrain includes:
- 2.5L four-cylinder hybrid engine (191 horsepower, 155 lb-ft of torque)
- Continuously variable transmission
- Front-wheel drive
Does the 2024 Ford Maverick offer adaptive cruise control?
Adaptive cruise control is available when you select the top-trim Lariat with the Luxury Package. The Luxury Package is exclusive to the stylish Maverick Lariat, adding a long list of upgrades, from leather upholstery to a premium B&O sound system.
If you want to save a little money on your Maverick, you’ll be pleased to know that the Maverick’s other trim models, the base XL and mid-level XLT, are handsomely equipped with modern features. Although they don’t come with adaptive cruise control, both models come standard with forward collision mitigation to help you pull up short of an accident.
Other standard features include LED headlights, power accessories, an 8-inch central touchscreen, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. Every Maverick also provides rear underseat storage compartments, where you can stow valuables out of sight. When you upgrade to the middling Maverick XLT, you’ll also enjoy the added convenience of a power-locking tailgate and a rear center armrest with cupholders.
