Details of the Ford Maverick First Edition leaked earlier this week, but Ford is still keeping quiet about what customers can expect. We will get a full overview before the pickup is sold later this year, which is expected to arrive at the dealers this autumn. We’ve learned a lot already, and new photos from Mavericktruckclub.com give us our first glimpse of the pickup in the metal, which was captured in the Las Vegas area.
The truck matches the marketing materials leaked from Ford earlier this week, and Maverick is wearing the same Area 51 exterior paint as well. The truck in the pictures shows the graphics package for the doors and hood, the body color handles and the soft cover. We know that the first edition will also receive black skull caps for the side mirrors, a high-gloss black-painted roof and unique wheels, even though this test car did not wear them.
Ford has not specified how many First Edition models they plan to build, although the company collected 36,000 reservations for the new pickup within days of the truck’s debut. The pickup, which starts at under $ 20,000 before the destination fee, will be the brand’s most affordable model and serve as an entry-level model packed with technology, tools and other neat features, which Ford hopes owners 3D print their own accessories.
Ford’s technological know-how extends to the powertrain, where a hybrid 2.5-liter inline-four provides 191 horsepower (142 kilowatts) and an estimated 40 miles per gallon in the city. These are impressive figures for the price point. An optional EcoBoost factory produces 250 hp (186 kW), although the hybrid should satisfy most. We will be following on the way to the second half of the year for Ford to release all the details of the Ford Maverick First Edition model in 2022.
