2022 Ford Maverick Leading the Way with Great Fuel Economy

2022 Ford Maverick | Sanderson Ford | Glendale, AZ

There are a lot of reasons why you want to check out the all-new Ford Maverick at Sanderson Ford in Glendale, Arizona. One of those reasons: exceptional gas mileage. Whether it’s the standard hybrid engine — the only such engine in its class — or the available 2.0-liter EcoBoost®, the 2022 Ford Maverick offers amazing fuel economy.

Equipped with its standard 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle hybrid engine, the 2022 Ford Maverick offers the best fuel economy of any hybrid pickup truck in America. The EPA estimates that the Maverick Hybrid can return 42 mpg in the city,[1] 33 mpg on the highway, 37 mpg combined, and cover more than 500 miles on a full tank.[2]

So popular is the Maverick Hybrid that reservations for 2022 are already filled up. You can take your next crack at it in the summer when order books reopen. But if you want a great, affordable truck today, the Maverick is available with a more robust EcoBoost® engine that’s also great on gas.

In addition to compatibility with options like Intelligent All-Wheel Drive and a 4K Trailer Tow package, the 2.0-liter EcoBoost® offers 250 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. But it’s still plenty efficient, returning up to 30 mpg on the highway with front-wheel drive and offering upwards of $250 in annual savings according to the EPA.[3]

The 2022 Ford Maverick EcoBoost® is available now through Sanderson Ford in Glendale, Arizona. Check out our inventory online and call to schedule your next visit.

New Investment Adds Jobs for F-150 Lightning Production

Ford F-150 Lightning | Sanderson Ford | Glendale, AZ

Ford is kicking off the early stages of production for the all-new, all-electric F-150 Lightning — and creating hundreds of new American jobs. A new $250 million investment at three Michigan facilities will help bring the F-150 Lightning to life and meet massive demand when it launches next spring.

Since its debut in May, Ford has taken more than 160,000 reservations for the 2022 F-150 Lightning electric truck. This creates a need for greater production capacity, which leads to the latest quarter-billion-dollar investment.

By spreading $250 million across the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center, Van Dyke Electric Powertrain Center, and Rawsonville Components Plant, Ford expands F-150 Lightning production capabilities and creates 450 new jobs. Since 2016, Ford has invested $7.7 billion in Michigan alone, creating or retaining 7,000 jobs.

“Investments like this can pave the way to a future that protects our families, our communities, and our middle class,” said Laura Dickerson, UAW Region 1A Director, after the announcement in September.

Ford is looking to pave the way to a future of zero-emissions driving as well with its first-ever F-150 Lightning. Offering an EPA-estimated maximum driving range up to 300 miles,[1] the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning will crush range anxiety as easily as it does tough jobs with its 10,000 pounds of estimated max towing.
