The Ford Maverick is a compact pickup, that might be a better choice that a full-sized truck… or even a car. Affordable, fuel efficient and easy to drive, Maverick can replace the family car if you don’t need a lockable trunk. Tom Voelk checks out an XLT model powered by the 2-liter EcoBoost engine and finds that size matters. Also, a quick look at Maverick’s only real competitor, the Hyundai Santa Cruz.


Remember- The Maverick is in short supply. Chances are dealers will charge over MSRP. We know that. You know that. The free-market economy giveth, the free-market economy taketh away.
