Watch out Baywatch. In a collaboration between Oxnard Union high school and their police department, the after school program “Drag Racing Against Gangs and Graffiti,” or DRAGG for short, have come up with a beach rescue concept truck utilizing the 2022 Ford Maverick pickup truck. The DRAGG program is aimed at putting industry professionals, local police, and at-risk youth all on the same team and encourage a career in the automotive industry. Their combined efforts yield a 2021 SEMA Show worthy Ford Maverick concept truck that may or may not end up being utilized as a real world option.
Ford Maverick DRAGG SEMA 2021 Concept: The Details
The truck itself sports a two-tone silver and yellow body color with bright yellow “Lifeguard Rescue” logos as well as police lighting where the fog lights would be placed and off road cube lights. The Maverick is also set up with a Ford Accessories topper and toolbox swing cases, roof rack, and crossbars. For the water missions it will encounter, the Maverick is equipped with a watersports carrier as well as a sunshade. On the inside the front seats are covered with CoverKing Neosupreme.
You can build your 2022 Ford Maverick via Ford’s website today. The truck only comes in one body style, but its starting price is set at $19,995 USD, before its rather steep destination charge crests it over $21,000 USD. Trim levels at launch include the XL, XLT, Lariat, and the exclusive Launch Edition, with many more expected on the way.
The 2022 Ford Maverick comes with two engine choices: the 2.0 Liter Ecoboost engine putting out 250 horsepower, with the capability of towing 4,000 pounds, and a 2.5 Liter hybrid that hits 191 horsepower and the best fuel economy on the market for a new pickup truck. The hybrid engine comes standard on all models.
