Ford Maverick vs. the Competition

Are you in the market for a new compact pickup truck? There are plenty of options out there for divers in Cincinnati, OH. At Kerry Ford, we think you will want to check out the all-new Ford Maverick, a rugged and capable pickup truck that might be ideal for you. But how does it compare to other compact pickup truck options on the market? Here is how the Maverick stacks up to the Honda Ridgeline, Hyundai Santa Cruz, and Toyota Tacoma

Ford Maverick vs. Honda Ridgeline

The Honda Ridgeline is definitely a capable truck. The Honda Ridgeline has a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that produces 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, making it a powerful compact pickup truck option. However, that engine option is the only one on offer for drivers in Fairfield who are interested in getting a Honda Ridgeline. Meanwhile, when you shop for a new Ford Maverick, you can choose between two exciting engine options, each with its own positives. The standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder hybrid engine produces 191 combined horsepower and 155 pound-feet of torque, while the available 2.0-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder engine produces a robust 250 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque. Unlike with the Honda Ridgeline, you have variety when determining what you need with the Maverick: the hybrid engine produces fantastic gas mileage (37 miles per gallon combined), while the gas engine has the power to compete with the Ridgeline's sole engine offering.

Ford Maverick vs. Hyundai Santa Cruz

Like the Maverick, the Hyundai Santa Cruz has two engine options: a standard 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine that produces 191 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque, and an available turbocharged 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine that produces 281 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque. While these are impressive engine options, they fall well short of the fuel efficiency offered by the Maverick. The standard hybrid engine of the Maverick produces a fuel economy of 42 miles per gallon city, 33 miles per gallon highway, and 37 miles per gallon combined. Even the available gas engine of the Maverick produces an impressive standard fuel economy of 23 miles per gallon city, 30 miles per gallon highway, and 26 miles per gallon combined. Meanwhile, the Hyundai Santa Cruz standard powertrain has a fuel economy of just 21 miles per gallon city, 27 miles per gallon highway, and 23 miles per gallon combined, while the available turbocharged engine produces just 19 miles per gallon city, 27 miles per gallon highway, and 22 miles per gallon combined. If you want to use your truck for everyday driving in Hamilton, you will save plenty of money on gas by choosing the Maverick.

Ford Maverick vs. Toyota Tacoma

The Toyota Tacoma comes standard with a 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine that generates just 159 horsepower. This engine option falls well short of the 191 horsepower produced by the standard Maverick powertrain. The Maverick significantly outstrips the Toyota Tacoma in fuel economy as well, with a combined fuel economy of 37 miles per gallon. Meanwhile, the Tacoma has a combined fuel economy of just 21 miles per gallon.
