Did you know that there are two brand-new Ford truck models coming out this year? Here’s what to expect with the Ford Maverick and the Ford F-150 Lightning:

Ford Maverick Details

Power

The Ford Maverick is a hybrid pickup that gets 191 horsepower from its 2.5-liter engine and 94-kW battery pack. There’s another engine to experience as well, a 250-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged configuration.

Towing and Hauling

You’ll be able to tow up to 2,000 pounds with the base Ford Maverick, and the turbocharged engine takes that to 4,000 pounds. The maximum payload for either engine is 1,500 pounds.

Tech and Safety

The standard tech and safety features in the Ford Maverick are plentiful. These include Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay®, an 8-inch touchscreen, automatic emergency braking, and forward-collision warning.

Ford F-150 Lightning Details

Power

The fully electric Ford F-150 Lightning has two electric motors and a choice of battery, either Standard- or Extended-Range. With the Standard-Range, it offers 426 horsepower, and the bigger battery increases that to 563 horsepower.

Driving Range and Charging

You can travel up to 230 miles on a full charge with the Standard-Range battery. The Extended-Range battery lets you go up to 300 miles. And with a DC fast-charging station, you can get up to an 80-percent charge in about 45 minutes.

Towing and Hauling

Just because it’s electric doesn’t mean this Ford truck can’t be put to work. The Standard-Range battery will let you tow up to 7,700 pounds, and that increases to 10,000 pounds with the Extended-Range battery. The maximum payload for both is 2,000 pounds.

Tech and Safety

A Wi-Fi hot spot, an infotainment system with a 12-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto™ are all standard with the Ford F-150 Lightning. Built-in safety features include lane keep assist, automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection.
