2022 Ford Maverick: Baby Ranger ute leaked ahead of June 8 reveal with hybrid power, not for Australia

The 2022 Ford Maverick has been teased for the first time ahead of its unveiling next week – but a set of leaked images have already spoiled the reveal surprise: a hybrid badge fitted to the tailgate. A pair of leaked images posted on the Maverick Truck Club forum show Ford's new sub-Ranger ute in full ahead of its reveal on 8 June 2021 at 8pm AEST, confirming the boxy, truck-like look first seen in leaked images taken on the Maverick's production line last year.
