At Jim Ellis Ford, the new Ford Maverick has been an incredible vehicle for us to experience. This truck shows the world what competitive standard features should look like and how capable a smaller vehicle can be.

Off-road enhancements and cutting-edge tech are just a few other great aspects of the new Ford Maverick, but overall, the heart of this small-but-mighty truck makes it stand out with ease. So, let's see what the 2022 Ford Maverick towing capacity is capable of:


Ford Maverick Truck Towing Capacity Explained

Several factors determine the towing capacity of your 2022 Ford Maverick truck. The first is your chosen 2022 Ford Maverick engine. This truck has made waves in the industry by being the first pickup truck to offer a standard full hybrid system.

This standard hybrid system uses a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and gets a boost with the 94 kW Ford In House E_Motor. Together they make 191 horsepower and 155 pound-feet of torque and deliver an impressive EPA-estimated fuel efficiency of up to 42 mpg city / 33 mpg highway1.

The second engine is the available 2.0-Liter EcoBoost® turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This engine makes a sporty 250 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque and achieves an EPA-estimated efficiency of up to 23 mpg city / 30 mpg highway1 in front-wheel drive form.

Drive layout is the second factor in the 2022 Ford Maverick towing capacity. The standard hybrid system is available in front-wheel drive (FWD) only, while you can choose the EcoBoost® engine option in standard FWD or available all-wheel drive (AWD) and achieve a maximum towing capacity of 2,000 lbs.

The Ford Maverick Towing Package

Choose the available 2.0-Liter EcoBoost® turbocharged four-cylinder engine with an AWD layout, and you can outfit your Ford Maverick with the available 4K Towing Package. With it, the 2022 Ford Maverick towing capacity will come in at up to 4,000 lbs when properly equipped.

This package includes a class III hitch, a trailer hitch receiver, a seven-pin connector and harness, a revised axle ratio, and an auxiliary transmission oil cooler to handle the load better.

So what can this hefty tow rating handle? Specific weights will vary, but a towing capacity of 4,000 lbs will typically be enough to haul:

  • One or two ATVs
  • Two motorcycles
  • A pop-up camper
  • A teardrop camper
  • An A-frame camper
  • A fiberglass-hulled fishing boat
  • A jetski
  • A utility trailer

2022 Ford Maverick Payload Capacity

The maximum Ford Maverick towing weight is impressive, and to complement those capabilities, you'll find a payload rating with similarly-strong capabilities.

Every model offers a standard payload capacity of up to 1,500 lbs2. Astoundingly, that's around the same as many far larger midsize truck models, with some midsize trucks even offering less payload capacity.

For example, a much larger 2022 Chevrolet Colorado WT 2.5-liter 4WD Extended Cab with a 79-inch bed offers a payload capacity of up to 1,380 lbs when properly equipped.

So, how does the 2022 Ford Maverick do it? With the innovative and tough FLEXBED™. Structural strength achieves the hauling prowess, while a surprisingly large wheel-well to wheel-well width of 42.6-inches and bed length of 54.5-inches makes good use of the strength. With customizable tie-downs, power connections, and much more, the 2022 Ford Maverick towing capacity is made even more impressive by the FLEXBED™ capabilities and features.
