3 Reasons The 2023 Ford Maverick Lariat Is Worth It

Even after the steepest price increase of the year, the 2023 Ford Maverick remains a compelling,

very reasonable little pickup truck, with a robust featureset, good design, and impressive fuel economy from its hybrid.

With the inline-4 hybrid engine under the hood, the 2023 Maverick offers 1500 pounds of cargo capability and 2000 pounds of towing capability.

The 2023 Ford Maverick is a hot hatchback, and its lower trims offer plenty to like, but getting the higher trim levels may prove worthwhile to many buyers.

Ford is keen to stress that the Maverick is Americas first pickup truck to come standard with a hybrid powertrain.

Without driving an FX4 and Tremor packages, I believe that a Tremor truck is a compelling,

cost-effective option for getting a capable, off-road-ready compact pickup.

A revised suspension gives the new Tremor off-road model an inch of raise from the standard truck,

and Ford has upgraded the coolers and transmission half-shafts to allow for greater traction in harsher conditions.
