2022 Ford Maverick vs 2021 Ford Ranger

Serving Richardson, TX

Each year, the Ford lineup is improved with new features and even a new model from time to time. For 2022, the Ford lineup expands with the addition of the new Maverick. This midsize pickup truck takes its position at the front of the truck lineup next to the popular Ranger. If you are in the market for a smaller, powerful truck, you understandably need to know how these models compare in critical areas. After learning more about their similarities and differences, which truck will you choose?


While these trucks are closely related, they approach performance from different angles. The Ford Maverick carries a 2.5-liter hybrid gas-electric engine. While it has a towing capacity of 4,000 pounds, it also boasts a fuel economy rating of 40 miles per gallon.


Your review of these truck models takes you to their styles. They have shared design elements across their profiles, contours, and flared wheel fenders from end to end. However, they stand apart with unique front-end styling. You will find a well-defined bumper, C-shaped headlights, and a rectangular grille on the Maverick's nose. The headlights and grille are integrated fully. The Ranger’s nose has an almost-flush bumper with a rounded grille and rectangular headlights. The headlights and grille are connected on one side.


You understandably have high expectations for what your next truck can deliver behind the wheel, and this extends to the many comfort and convenience features that it carries. Both of these Ford truck models carry similar features at various trim levels. Features include a wireless internet hotspot, USB ports, an auto climate management system, a sound system, powered front seats, a sound system, and more.

At North Central Ford, we never take chances with something as important as customer satisfaction. We want you to head home in a new Ford truck that you love, and we will happily support you as you get to know all of the models and trims that could be a smart fit for you.
