The Ford Maverick, was designed as a compact pickup truck with a versatile truck bed similar to the Ford Ranger. Here are some key features and aspects of the Maverick's truck bed:
Size: The Maverick comes with a 4.5-foot bed, also referred to as the "FLEXBED". While this is smaller than full-sized pickups, it is designed to be versatile and efficient for urban and suburban users who might not need the capacity of larger trucks.
FLEXBED Design: One of the distinguishing features of the Maverick's bed is its design, which Ford has termed "FLEXBED". This design allows owners to better utilize the space with features like:
Vertical and horizontal slots to use DIY dividers or bed separators.
Available accessory pockets, hooks, and anchor points for increased versatility.
Payload: The Maverick has a payload capacity that varies slightly based on the configuration but is designed to handle over 1,500 pounds, making it practical for many everyday uses, from transporting furniture to hauling gardening supplies.
DIY-friendly: Recognizing that many truck owners like to customize their truck beds, Ford designed the Maverick's FLEXBED to be DIY-friendly. Owners can add their storage solutions, racks, and other customizations using readily available materials from hardware stores.
Available Features: The Maverick offers a range of optional bed-related features depending on the trim and packages, including bed lighting, a 110-volt power outlet, bed liners, tonneau covers, and more.
Towing: While not directly related to the bed, the Maverick's towing capacity is worth noting. With the Ford Maverick's hybrid powertrain, it can tow up to 2,000 pounds. If equipped with the optional EcoBoost engine and Tow Package, its towing capacity goes up to 4,000 pounds.
