The Car Pro Test Drives the 2022 Ford Maverick Pickup
Thursday on Sunrise LBK with Dave King and Tom Collins, The Car Pro Jerry Reynolds joined Dave and Tom to talk about his test drive of the week, changes to cars in the industry over time, as well as other auto industry news.
This week The Car Pro was test driving the 2022 Ford Maverick pickup, a brand that was a car when it debuted in the 70s, but has transformed into a compact pickup truck since then. Jerry started by saying that he's enjoyed driving this all week long and was excited to compare it to the Hyundai Santa Cruz that he test drove several weeks ago. When comparing them, he found that they were actually very different. The new Maverick is more of a pickup truck than the Santa Cruz, both in its drive and its ride. This model has a 4 and a half foot bed, which Jerry said actually felt larger than he expected, a nice interior with cloth seats, 4 wheel drive, 4 doors, a 4 cylinder eco boost engine that puts out 250 horses and tows 4,000 lbs., and it gets 22 miles to the gallon in the city and 29 on the highway. The 2022 Ford Maverick pickup has a window sticker price of $31,910, which is substantially less than the average for these type of trucks at $40,000.
The Car Pro also talked about other auto industry stories, including on his website carprousa.com. On his website you can find a story of a List of 15 Cars That Cost More Used Than New where Jerry discusses how auction prices remain high with no end in sight, despite the chip shortage letting up.
