Camping, fishing, and home renovation projects: the 2022 Ford Maverick’s favorite activities. If you partake in any of those activities and need a light-duty truck to help get the job done, the 2022 Ford Maverick is a great option for you. Plus, it can tow up to 4,000 pounds when properly equipped!
Want to learn more about the Maverick’s towing capacity, powertrains, and additional utility? Our team at Friendly Ford of Hamilton has put together this towing capacity review to keep Hamilton, Madison, and Morrisville, NY, campers, fishers, and DIYers in the know. Let’s get started.
As a member of the Ford truck lineup, you can expect greatness from the 2022 Ford Maverick. However, since it is a light-duty truck, you can expect to tow up to 2,000 pounds with the base engine. That is plenty of pulling power to pull these items to the campground:
On the other hand, you can tow up to 4,000 pounds with the available engine and when properly equipped! With a little bit more pulling power, you can tow a couple jet skis at a time, a lightweight travel trailer on your next road trip, or a utility trailer with a few snowmobiles inside.
Did you know that the 2022 Ford Maverick is the only pickup truck that comes with a standard full hybrid engine? Yep, that’s right! This Ford truck isn’t only great at pulling your camping or fishing gear, but it can also be the perfect stead for your back-and-forth trips to the home improvement store across town.
There are two powertrains available for the Maverick:
While you’re pulling your pop-up camper or small boat, did you know you can carry a lot of cargo in the truck bed? Even with the cargo bed cover on, you can carry 33.3 cubic feet of tackle boxes, coolers, tents, and foldable chairs in the 4.5-foot bed!
Don’t worry about overloading either because this truck has a 1,500-pound payload when properly configured. Plus, thanks to the FLEXBED™ design and multi-position tailgate, you can easily match your activity’s needs. Need to carry home long planks of wood? The tailgate features adjustable retention cords; you can leave the tailgate half closed to help hold in your materials.
Additionally, the truck bed comes with smart storage and security solutions to support all your tailgate parties or garden renovations. You didn’t hear this from us, but the tailgate tie downs also function as bottle openers!
When you’re submerged into the great outdoors or need to liven up your tailgate, two standard 12-volt pre-wired ports are in the truck bed! You can plug in a mini fridge, fire up a portable stovetop, or power up an air compressor to fill your bike’s tires.
