Ford Motor Company continues to sell as many Maverick small trucks as it can build, and Q1 2022 sales results for the truck show some impressive statistics. Grouped in with larger midsize trucks, the mighty Maverick comes in fourth place, behind the Toyota Tacoma, Nissan Frontier, and Chevrolet Colorado. Compared to the Hyundai Santa Cruz and the Honda Ridgeline – the only other two unibody trucks for sale in the USA – the Maverick tallies more than double their combined sales.

Turns out people really like their Ford trucks, eh?


Perhaps the most surprising sales stat from Q1 2022 was that the Ford Maverick beat out its slightly bigger brother though, the Ford Ranger by about 1,600 units (19,245 to 17,639 units in the USA). The Ranger was also slightly outsold by the Jeep Gladiator, which accounted for 17,912 units.

The data otherwise reveals that everybody is playing catch-up to the longstanding midsize truck sales champion, the Toyota Tacoma, which delivered 53,182 units in the first three months of 2022. Combined, the Ranger and Maverick accounted for 36,884 units, which would put Ford in second place in the combined segment overall. General Motors would be in third, with 21,693 sales from the Chevrolet Colorado (third place overall), and 6,160 sales from the GMC Canyon (ninth overall), totaling 27,853 units.

What’s got people fawning over the Maverick? When it comes to overall gas consumption, the little truck has achieved a remarkable 600 mile range on one tank utilizing the standard 2.5L hybrid engine which comes out to about 44 MPG on average. Even a souped-up Maverick can make your next trip to the gas station a little further away as we’ve seen 39 MPG in modified Maverick trucks as well.
