2022 Ford Maverick Hybrid Fuel Economy Revealed

Ford Maverick | Pittsburgh, PA

The 2022 Ford Maverick is the first standard hybrid pickup truck in America, and it delivers incredible fuel economy. Final EPA ratings have been revealed, and it puts the Maverick in a class all its own with an amazing 42 mpg in the city.[1]

Ford offers the all-new Maverick with a standard 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle full hybrid engine. Returning 42 mpg in the city as well as 33 mpg on the highway and 37 mpg combined, the Maverick hybrid offers comparable efficiency to sedans that do far less than a Ford truck.

“Our team set out to redefine what a truck could be with Maverick, and we’ve done that with an EPA-estimated 42 mpg city that beats the 2022 Honda Civic 1.5-liter four-cylinder automatic (variable gear ratio) gasoline engine,” said Ford Maverick Chief Engineer Chris Mazur. “At the same time, Maverick offers room for five and plenty of towing and hauling for weekend trips or do-it-yourself projects.”

When equipped with the standard hybrid, the 2022 Ford Maverick offers towing up to 2,000 pounds and 1,500 pounds of maximum payload. You’ll also get the convenience of FLEXBED™, an innovative 4.5-foot bed that’s easily customizable.

The 2022 Ford Maverick has arrived at Shults Ford in Pittsburgh. Visit one of our showrooms and see for yourself why this truck is a game-changer.

Get Ready: The Ford Bronco Raptor Debuts in 2022

Raptor Ford Grill | Shults Ford Wexford

When it rains, it pours when it comes to Ford and Ford Performance. While the excitement surrounding the all-new Ford Bronco is still at a fever pitch, the Blue Oval is making sure that there’s still plenty to look forward to with its Built Wild™ brand. Ford announced that an all-new Bronco Raptor will debut in 2022, kicking things up yet another level.

Ford hasn’t said much about the Bronco Raptor, but based on the name alone, we can intuit a thing or two. Namely, we can expect the Ford Bronco Raptor debuting in 2022 to offer a more powerful engine and even more off-road-ready equipment.

To give you an idea, the new 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor boasts a 450-horsepower twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 and upgrades like FOX™ Live Valve™ shocks, and a revamped suspension with longer springs. So if you thought the 2021 Ford Bronco was an impressive off-road performer — and it is — just imagine what the Bronco Raptor will do.

One interesting thing to note: In announcing the Bronco Raptor, Ford said that it will be “one of the Bronco special edition vehicles that will be available in 2022.” So it sounds like there’s somehow even more to be excited about when it comes to one of the coolest new vehicles to come around in some time.

2022 Ford Explorer ST Gets RWD for the First Time

Ford Explorer ST | Shults Ford Wexford

Since its debut, the Ford Explorer ST has set a new standard for high-performance three-row SUVs. Ford has kept its ear to the ground and listened to its fans, and that’s why the 2022 Explorer ST will be the first to come standard with rear-wheel drive.

“Four-wheel-drive capability is great if you need it, but if you don’t, you shouldn’t have to pay for it,” said Ford Explorer Marketing Manager Lee Newcombe. “These changes to the Explorer lineup were guided by what our customers told us they wanted.”

Ford also understands that some drivers want the bold look of the Explorer ST but don’t need all 400 horsepower that you get from the twin-turbo 3.0-liter EcoBoost® V6. To accommodate those customers, the 2022 Ford Explorer ST-Line offers the same style of the Ford Performance SUV but equips it instead with the 300-horsepower 2.3-liter EcoBoost®.

To keep the ever-popular Explorer ever-fresh, Ford is rolling out a ton of additional updates for 2022. That includes making the 400-horsepower V6 standard for the King Ranch and Platinum, giving you the choice between a second-row bench or captain’s chairs at no additional cost, and adding a pair of new exterior colors — Stone Blue and Burgundy Velvet.

If you’re thinking that the 2022 Ford Explorer ST might just be up your alley, check in with your friends at Shults Ford Wexford. We’ll set you up with a test drive and let you experience this incredible SUV for yourself.

Ford Auctions Custom Mustang Mach-E at EAA AirVenture

Ford Mustang Mach-E | Shults Ford Wexford| Pittsburgh, PA

For several years now, Ford has been an integral part of the Experimental Aircraft Association’s annual AirVenture show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Ford often brings one-of-one vehicles to the show that are auctioned off for programs supporting up-and-coming aviators. And for the 2021 EAA AirVenture, Ford had a doozy in store: a custom Mustang Mach-E inspired by some of the bravest women ever to have wings.

Ford created a one-of-a-kind 2021 Mustang Mach-E customized in tribute to the Women Airforce Service Pilots. These women covered 60 million miles during World War II, transporting aircraft to bases around the globe.

As a tribute to the 38 Women Airforce Service Pilots who died in service to their country, the custom Mustang Mach-E auctioned at the 2021 EAA AirVenture bears the No. 38 on the front fascia, rear bumper, and in the cabin. This unique pony also features U.S. Army Airforce Star decals and a distinctive color scheme.

“It was hard not to get a little teary-eyed as we put the finishing touches on this vehicle,” said Kristen Keenan, a designer who helped create the Mustang Mach-E. “I have never worked on a memorial project before. Commemorating this group of women through the vehicle design was an honor.”

This rare Mustang Mach-E went up for auction at AirVenture’s The Gathering, and all proceeds went to help EAA’s goal of expanding aviation industry access for women and youths from underserved communities. Over the years, Ford has helped EAA raise more than $4 million for the cause.

This one-of-one Mustang Mach-E was sold to a lucky individual at this year’s AirVenture, but you can still fly high in your own performance EV. Contact Shults Ford Wexford in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to learn how you can get your hands on the all-new Mustang Mach-E.

The 2021 Ford Explorer Timberline is an easy choice if you have a taste for excitement. In addition to a powerful 300-horsepower 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine, the Explorer Timberline adds a new Torsen® limited-sleep rear differential that directs torque to the wheel with the best grip while minimizing wheelspin.

Adding high-sidewall Bridgestone Dueler P265/65R-18 all-terrain tires with a unique, off-road-optimized tread pattern, the 2021 Ford Explorer Timberline raises the ride height by 0.8 inches for even more confidence going over rough terrain. Helping on that front is the standard Terrain Management System™, which includes Trail and Deep Snow/Sand drive modes.

As if this isn’t enough, the new Ford Explorer Timberline is one of the most unique-looking versions of the rugged three-row ever made. The Explorer Timberline sports a distinct Forged Green Metallic exterior that plays beautifully off the high-gloss painted aluminum wheels and Carbonized Gray grille.

Ford Donates $250K to STEM Education in Detroit

Ford Grill | Shults Ford | Wexford, PA

Ford knows that the future of the auto industry is in the hand of a new generation of up-and-coming talent. That’s why it seeks to empower everyone who has the potential to make change a reality. Ford recently donated $250,000 to the Detroit Area Pre-College Engineering Program, which will bring STEM education to 80 underrepresented students.

Ford and DAPCEP are establishing a new Future Forward program that will aid 11th and 12th grade students from Detroit. Those selected for the program can take part in courses, benefit from Ford mentorship, and can even qualify for internships and a pre-college program.

DAPCEP Executive Director Michelle Reaves said that the goal of the partnership is to provide access to STEM education to students from underserved communities.

“According to recent UCLA research, 22 percent of Black students and 29 percent of Latinx students complete a STEM degree within six years. If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that the world will need more scientists, engineers, and researchers who represent and support underrepresented communities,” said Reaves.

Ford is committed to the future, and it shows in how it invests in American students and workers. The result will no doubt be continued innovation for years to come, resulting in more game-changing vehicles like the 2021 Ford F-150 and Mustang Mach-E.
