Ford Maverick Towing: Powertrain & Drivetrain Options 

The Ford Maverick comes standard with a 2.5L I4 Hybrid powertrain configuration and FWD, but if you’d like a more controlled drive on Munster streets, you can upgrade to a 2.0L EcoBoost® powertrain and AWD. 

You’re likely wondering how the Maverick’s engine options impact its towing abilities. Maverick models that feature the hybrid powertrain and FWD, as well as models with EcoBoost® engine and FWD or AWD, can tow up to 2,000 pounds. If you’d like to access the maximum 2022 Ford Maverick truck towing capacity of 4,000 pounds, you must choose the 2.0L EcoBoost® engine and AWD and add the Ford Maverick 4K Tow Package.
