The Best Pickup Trucks Of 2022

American manufacturers have recently steered away from producing small pickup trucks. Instead, powerful vehicles fitted with big V8 engines and four-wheel drive demonstrate impressive hauling capabilities and exceptional off-road features. Pickups such as the Ford F-150 Raptor generating 450 hp or the Ram 1500 TRX boasting a whopping 702 hp, have gained favor. For 2022, Ford has filled the gap by offering the Maverick, the first hybrid pickup truck, a unibody crossover-based pickup built on the Escape and Bronco Sport platform.

Ford offers the truck in two powertrain options. The standard equipment version features a gas-electric hybrid with a four-cylinder 2.5-liter engine generating 191 horsepower and 155 lb-ft of torque and an e-CVT drivetrain that sends more than ample power to the front wheels for most applications (via) Motor Trend). The hybrid version has an EPA-estimated 42 mpg (city) and a range of 500 miles on a tank of gas (via Ford).

An optional turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine generating 250 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque connected to an eight-speed automatic is available with either front- or all-wheel drive. Either powertrain will haul up to 1,500 pounds of cargo, but Ford offers a Tow Package with the EcoBoost engine that provides towing up to 4,000 pounds. The Maverick provides a comfortable ride with the handling of a typical SUV and the simple cabin sans any luxury adornments helps keep the selling price near $20,000.
