    Ford"s new Maverick hybrid pickup will get 40 mpg in the city and starts at $19,995

    Ford"s new Maverick hybrid pickup will get 40 mpg in the city and starts at ,995-2a51707f-ada9-4e75-af2c-b5201c068ad7-fordmavrick_060221_es02

    Key Points

    • Ford unveiled the compact Maverick pickup Tuesday as the smallest vehicle in its highly profitable truck lineup.
    • It will be the first pickup truck in America with a standard gas-electric hybrid engine when it goes on sale this fall starting at just under $20,000.
    • Compact pickups are an untapped and unproven market in the U.S.



    Apart for the typical American style bull nose (no offence intended) ... I like it. Both the concept and the styling.

    Weird. Chevy, Datsun, Toyota, Mazda/Ford all made small trucks. I like small trucks, had a 1997 and 2004 Ford Ranger, also a Mazda pick up in 1981. Is compact different than small?

    I was surprised to see the small trucks disappear in Thailand (I'm guessing 2010ish), other than the Suzuki swift and a couple oddballs. Mazda and Toyota both used to sell good small trucks there, and I thought they fit the demographic well. Economical trucks but still capable of hard work.

    ^ that's a pretty good price for a new pick up.

    Horses for courses. When I first came here as a tourist I thought it was funny how nearly every pick-up was a small size. I kept expecting to see a few Silverado or "F" series maybe even a Dodgy Ram...but No fast forward to today never seen one. Same with big rigs. The only Kenworth I have seen is the one Cat use to haul their low bed. And the only Peterbilt (a red 357 from the 90's) which was going through Sak Lek about 2 years ago. Going by price what I can't figure is why MB and Volvo have a small market here despite their hefty prices....yet Freightliner, Kenworth and Peterbilt aren't in the market.

    will not be available to purchase in Thailand because its not manufactured here
    if they import it it will be the must expensive pickup on the local market
