As pickups continued growing in both size and price, many drivers had become frustrated at the disappearance of affordable, conveniently sized options. But Ford has brought back the small truck in a big way, filling the void with compact yet capable Maverick. Promoted as a truck for people who never knew they needed one, the all-new Ford Maverick offers a versatile FlexBed™ system with a multi-position tailgate and functional add-ons like a bed-extender, in-bed storage, 110V power outlets, a tonneau box cover, and more. Plus, it's the industry's first-ever standard hybrid truck, achieving better fuel economy than most small sedans (EPA-estimated 42 mpg city).

The Ford Maverick has been an unprecedented success, gaining more fans by the month thanks to its practical utility and non-imposing space requirements. It's a huge hit with critics as well, accumulating an impressive trophy case of awards and accolades. Recently, Maverick hauled in its most impressive win when it took home the coveted title of North American Truck of Year. Chosen by a panel of 50 professional automotive journalists from the United States and Canada, the NACTOY awards recognize the year's most outstanding vehicles that demonstrate "excellence in innovation, design, safety, performance, technology, driver satisfaction, and value."

But that was just the latest awards in the Maverick's hot streak. It has been out for less than a year but has already earned a long list of accolades, including:

  • KBB Best Buy Awards – 2022 Best New Model and Best Compact Pickup
  • The Car Connection – 2022 Best Car to Buy
  • Forbes Wheels – 2022 Pickup of the Year
