The 2022 Ford Maverick compact pickup is right here, and it’s a severely intriguing piece of package. One query we had (and we’re positive lots of you do too) is how its dimension compares to the opposite Ford pickup choices.
Ford had solely the F Series and its big selection of configurations a couple of years in the past. Then the Ranger got here alongside. Now, the Maverick joins the pair amongst Ford’s rapidly expanding pickup options. Which means there are three sizes of vehicles for 3 completely different use circumstances. The powertrains and unibody building clearly differentiate the Maverick from the others, but it surely’s powerful to guage scale by merely artsy press photographs of a pickup.
To unravel this, Ford mocked up a useful graphic that reveals precisely how a lot smaller the Maverick is in comparison with its different pickups. You’ll be able to scrutinize that on the prime of this submit. In comparison with its closest neighbor, the Ranger, it’s 11.1 inches shorter. That’s almost a foot, subtracted from each the entrance and rear. Probably the most affected space is the Maverick’s mattress. It’s a 4.5-foot mattress, whereas the Ranger in SuperCrew format has a five-foot mattress (61 inches to be actual). We’re utilizing the Supercrew for comparability, because it traces up closest with the Maverick’s unique full-four-door setup. In case you do go for the Ranger Supercab, you’ll be working with a bigger six-foot mattress.
You’ll discover a slight distinction in rear legroom between the Maverick and Ranger, however the Maverick wins this comparability. The place the Ranger maxes out at 34.5 inches, the Maverick provides a 36.9-inch most (or 35.9 inches with the Hybrid). That offers you an thought of the place the priorities are for these pickups — the Ranger is for work and play, whereas the Maverick is extra of a household automobile with a mattress or crossover various. The peak distinction is minimal, however the Ranger is taller by 2.4 inches. As soon as once more, although, the Maverick has more room contained in the cabin, beating the Ranger for second-row headroom by 1.3 inches. The Maverick’s barely lowered width ought to assist make it a bit of simpler to park and maneuver than a Ranger, too. It’s 2.3 inches skinnier (in case you embrace the mirrors), making it simpler to reside with on a regular basis.
The distinction between the Maverick and an F-150 is the place issues start to unfold out. Your typical F-150 Supercrew with a 5.5-foot mattress is available in at 231.7 inches, making it 32 inches longer than a Maverick. That implies that in case your storage is only a couple toes too brief to carry an F-150, the Maverick will very seemingly match. The F-150’s additional size pays dividends in inside area. Rear legroom is an enormous 43.6 inches, which is 6.7 inches greater than the Maverick at its greatest (non-Hybrid). The F-150 continues to be the go-to if you need a mountain of area and tremendous ethereal inside, however the Maverick appears to be like prefer it’ll be greater than sufficient for youths or smaller adults to be comfortable. Plus, you gained’t be suspiciously eyeing these most peak indicators when coming into tight parking garages. The Maverick’s tighter turning radius will show you how to when you’re within the storage, too.
It’s hardly definitely worth the comparability, however Ford included an F-250 Super Duty configured as a Crew Cab with a brief field for added perspective. The Maverick is 20% smaller and almost a foot shorter in peak. That claims extra about how gargantuan the most important pickups are right this moment than how small the Maverick is, but it surely’s nonetheless a useful comparator to know how huge the Maverick is.
You’ll be capable to see this little pickup in individual on dealer heaps within the fall and do your individual evaluating and contrasting to see if it’s the fitting dimension to suit into your life.
