The Ford Maverick is a versatile pickup with multiple towing capacity options to fit your needs. The 2024 model comes standard with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine.

In its standard front-wheel-drive and available all-wheel-drive configurations, this powertrain allows the 2024 Maverick to tow up to 2,000 pounds.1 Opting for the 4K Tow Package – available with AWD configurations using the EcoBoost engine – doubles the total towing capacity of the Ford Maverick to 4,000 pounds.1

The 2024 model also offers an available 2.5-liter hybrid powertrain with a base towing capacity of 2,000 pounds.1 Though not as powerful as AWD EcoBoost models equipped with the 4K Tow Package, the Ford Maverick hybrid towing capacity is equally matched with the gas engine’s capabilities otherwise – meaning your hybrid is robust enough to tow small trailers, campers, equipment, and more.

Ford Maverick Towing Capacity: Engine and Performance Specs

We’ll start things off at the low end of the Ford Maverick towing capacity spectrum by looking at its available 2.5-liter hybrid engine. This eco-friendly powertrain also offers a respectable standard payload capacity of 1,500 pounds.2 Whether you’re loading up tools, supplies, gear, or recreational equipment, this engine is up to the task.

Under the hood, the 2.5-liter hybrid powertrain churns out 191 combined horsepower and 155 pound-feet of torque. It achieves this with the help of an electronic continuously variable transmission (eCVT). The beauty of this setup is its focus on efficiency and smooth power delivery. Models equipped with the 2.5-liter hybrid engine come in a front-wheel drive configuration, making them well-suited for city commutes and light towing needs.

For those seeking more muscle and versatility in their Maverick, the standard 2.0-liter EcoBoost gas engine is a compelling choice. This engine is available with both front-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations, offering versatile performance. With an output of 250 horsepower and a robust 277 pound-feet of torque, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine ensures a responsive and dynamic driving experience.

To unlock the truck’s maximum towing potential, you’ll want to opt for the 2.0-liter gas engine combined with the all-wheel drive configuration and 4K Tow Package, as we mentioned above.

Whether you opt for the hybrid or EcoBoost engine, the payload capacity remains consistent at 1,500 pounds2 on all but two configurations. Opting for the LARIAT or XLT trim with the Tremor package and all-wheel drive drops total payload capacity to 1,200 pounds.2
