Ford’s New Compact Pickup Will Be Released June 8

Meet the Maverick. If you’re looking for something a little more manageable than a full-size pickup, this may be right up your alley. After months of speculation, Ford will be adding the all-new compact pickup to the lineup.

“Bringing a rebirth of a classic name and the creation of a new choice for truck customers, the all-new Ford Maverick makes its debut on June 8 with the help of actress Gabrielle Union. She will show-off the all-new truck on her own Instagram and TikTok channels, on Ford’s social channels as well as on Hulu. The Maverick will be Ford’s first vehicle to debut on its new U.S. TikTok channel.”

Ford’s keeping most details under wrap until the debut next week but you can get a general idea from the promo videos above. The things we know form the leak a few months ago? The pickup will be a unibody truck, house a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and possibly have a manual transmission option.

Barring any chip shortage issues, the Maverick may be available as early as fall 2021. Check back June 8 for the official release!
