Ford Maverick name confirmed, and its reveal is just days away
Maverick is official, Ford announced on Thursday. The nameplate will return on a compact pickup truck - the exact same one we've seen repeatedly in the wild over the past year - and we'll see it officially unveiled in a few days. Ford included two teaser photos of the truck's prominent ambassador, Gabrielle Union.
“Months of rumors, espionage and speculation have led to this moment. It's true - Ford is adding a brand new little pickup truck called Maverick to its lineup, ”said Ford's brief announcement.“ With the rebirth of a classic name and the creation of a new choice for truck customers, the all-new Ford Maverick is celebrating debut on June 8th. "
Based on what we've seen so far, the Maverick will be smaller than the Ranger and front-wheel drive (with all-wheel drive available). It looks like it comes with either twist beam rear suspension or an independent setup depending on your drivetrain configuration. Despite its unibody construction, it will likely appeal to those who miss the smaller footprint and (for the time) reasonable frugality of the old compact Ranger.
It's been more than a decade since America had a true compact pickup option, but there will soon be two thanks to Hyundai, which also comes into play with its new Santa Cruz. While Hyundai's agents are reluctant to refer to it as a truck, you'll find it hard to call it anything else because of its silhouette and cargo-friendly rear end.
We won't have to wait long for details. Ford will officially unveil the Maverick on Tuesday, June 8th. Stay tuned!
