Yep, you read it right. The 2022 Ford Maverick starts at a lowly $21,490 before a mandatory $1,495 destination charge. That's frankly wild considering we live in a world where the average new car costs around $38,000. So, let's take a look at the base Maverick in its XL trimmings, shall we?

Ford already has a configurator up for the little trucklet showing what exactly you can expect if you want the ultra inexpensive Maverick. The initial takeaway is, well, it doesn't look too bad. The exterior still looks like any other Maverick minus some extra chrome trim additions, and it wears a set of 17-inch steel wheels. Personally, the steel wheels look pretty great to me, though it's understandable why buyers will more than likely opt for the XLT trim with its identically sized but more stylish aluminum wheels. LED headlights are also standard fare, and the nifty Flexbed solution for the Maverick's rear end comes with every truck. It's highly versatile and very cool.
