Ford Maverick with Integrated Hybrid Engine and LTE

After introducing the electric F-150 Hybrid, Mustang Mach-E and F-150 Lightning electric, Ford's newest electric model is the Maverick Pickup.

It's due to launch later this year, with a suggested base price of $1,995.

Ford claims the Maverick will be the first pickup with a standard hybrid system.

Ford announced last week that it would be reusing the name as it was used in a fuel-efficient coupe in the 1970s.

This pickup was equipped with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and Ford's first specially developed electric motor.

The 94 kW battery provides only 191 hp for the two front wheels.

Although this pickup truck setup is unexpected, Ford is promoting it to people who don't know they need a pickup and may have looked for a car or crossover before.

The truck's EPA fuel consumption is 15 kilometers per liter, which means it can travel 800 kilometers on a single 52-liter tank.

For those who know they need a pickup and want more traction with a 2WD hybrid powertrain and eCVT transmission, the gasoline-powered version is available.

The petrol version is equipped with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine with 250 horsepower. Equipped with a turbocharger under the hood and an 8-speed automatic transmission. The possibility of adding four-wheel drive. Plus a special kit for towing or all-terrain.

The standard payload for the hybrid version is 680 kg, which is enough to tow a standard ATV and has a towing capacity of 900 kg. That's enough to tow a couple of motor boats or compact RV trailers, Ford says.

The gasoline version with a towing bag can tow up to 1,820 kg.

Ford continues to drive electric cars:

In addition to the hybrid system, the Maverick also has an 8-inch touch screen in the center console as standard, and is compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

There is also FordPass Connect. This is a 4G LTE connection that can display WiFi hotspots for up to 10 devices and offers multiple data plans.

Many driver assistance devices are standard. However, Ford's Cruise Control and Co-Pilot 360 assist functions (such as lane centering and blind spot detection) are optional add-ons.

In addition to the steel wheels, the base model XL has 12-volt sockets. Available options can add two 400-watt outlets for gadgets or entertainment.

It adds the Lariat Sync 3, a B&O audio system with eight speakers, a subwoofer, wireless charger, dual-zone climate control, and other features.

The mid-range XLT model is priced at $23,775. The price of the sheets is approximately $26,985. The cost of the first edition is $33,680.

Ford is trying to focus on hybrid drivetrain, and the company says hybrid drivetrain makes it more fuel-efficient than the Honda Civic.

When you want something that uses less fuel but isn't an all-electric car. The splinter might be worth seeing when she takes to the streets this fall.
