Head to Your Kansas City Car Dealership and Test Drive an Award Winning Maverick

As one of the pioneers of the automobile industry, Ford has built a strong legacy in reputation, sales, and respectability. For those reasons, awards and recognition usually come as no surprise. It’s not often a legacy brand like Ford gets to be an underdog, but here we are. We want to highlight our 2022 Ford Maverick because everyone loves an underdog, right?

Our 2022 Ford Maverick was named the best value in the small pickup category by Intellichoice. This marks the first time in a decade that any other vehicle than the Toyota Tacoma won this award. This is a huge win for Ford, the category, and customers looking to get into a new small pickup. When you combine this with the North American Truck of the Year award, the Maverick is making a claim as one of the best possible new cars to purchase in 2022.

If the awards weren’t enough, let’s look at some of the features for the Maverick that will have you running to your Ford dealership in Kansas City to special order one.

Versatility Comes In All Sizes

The Ford Maverick is described by Ford as a “truck for people who never knew they needed a truck.” The Maverick is not only versatile in how it can look with endless customization possibilities. It is also a truck that is built with the durability and toughness that is ubiquitous with Ford.

This means you can drive it anywhere and on any terrain – without emptying your wallet at the gas pump. The comfort, style, and individuality of a smaller new car all packed into a do-it-all truck. Find a dealership near you to take it for a spin!

Utility At It’s Finest

When your new car is a Ford Maverick, you can tell people you drive a utility vehicle. No SUV here, but this Maverick has many useful features that will pay dividends for the owner. Some of these features include:

  • Bed up to 4.5 feet long for maximum storage and cargo space, featuring FlexBed™ design, the most innovative truck box that Ford has ever released. FlexBed packs the bed with organization and storage features to maximize cargo space and make the space the driver’s own. Highlighted by an adjustable tailgate with maximum capacity in multiple positions, 2×4 pockets along the side, and handy closing storage compartments, this bed ensures the driver can fit their Maverick into any lifestyle.
  • 10 tie-down spots and sliding cargo rail for maximum security for your valuables. The tie-downs double as bottle openers, so you don’t have to wait too long after work to get the party started.
  • 110V outlet for maximum connectivity

All of these features are icing on top of the cake that is already the cargo space you have access to when you drive a Ford truck.

Work Hard, Play Harder

So you went to your Kansas City Ford dealership and got your new car, a 2022 Ford Maverick. It’s time to celebrate! No need to find a party, you’re driving one! You and your new car will need a well deserved break after exploring the versatility with off-road adventures or taking full advantage of the utility by moving cargo for a DIY project.

The great thing about the Maverick is that you can go from work to play instantly with the sturdy multi-functional tailgate and built-in bottle openers. You’ll have to crank the tunes and set the mood; your Maverick makes that easy with a built-in wi-fi hotspot plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. All left to play out of a crisp eight-speaker Bang & Olufsen Sound System. The ingredients you need are traveling with you at all times, so you’re free to party whenever time permits. This truck is ready to tailgate!
