2022 Ford Maverick towing a jet ski


A maverick is defined as an “unorthodox or independent person”. So it’s fitting that in the new Ford truck lineup, the Maverick is the small, scrappy, disruptor. If the Ford F-150 is the iconic, well-rounded, and capable obvious choice, and the Ranger is the more affordable, fun, and fuel-sipping alternative that can still tow up to 7,500 pounds, then the 2022 Ford Maverick is the truck for frugal-minded folks who want more towing and hauling capability than most SUVs can provide for a “wow”-inducing price. 

So, how much can a Ford Maverick tow around Davie? With the 2022 Ford Maverick towing package, AKA Ford 4K tow package, and EcoBoost® engine, the Maverick can tow up to 4,000 pounds. That’s impressive for a vehicle with a starting MSRP of just $19,995 for the 2022 model year. 

For comparison’s sake, most other new vehicles under $20,000 are compact cars which generally tow between 1,000-1,500 pounds. In a phrase, the new Ford Maverick towing capacity and value help this small truck not only outshine other small trucks but also the entire cross-section of budget-priced vehicles under $20,000! There’s nothing else currently like the Maverick on the market, so its name truly is apt. Want to learn more? Call 954.443.7000 or read on.

Ford Maverick Towing by Powertrain & Drivetrain

Opting for the $745 Ford Maverick towing package is essential to maximizing your Maverick towing potential in Miramar, but so is choosing the right powertrain and drivetrain configuration. Standard on the Maverick is a 2.5L I4 Hybrid powertrain configuration and FWD. This configuration is great if you’re more concerned about fuel-efficiency and cost-efficiency than towing as it offers a 2,000-pound maximum towing capacity.

Want more towing power? Upgrade to the 2.0L EcoBoost® engine and AWD for the max. 4,000-lb capacity. These three things together determine how much your Ford Maverick will be able to tow:

  1. Maverick Engine 
  2. Maverick Drivetrain
  3. Maverick 4K Tow Package
