Pretty dang good considering 30 MPG is about the best a 90's Camry does.
I rather have a new 50mpg 5mt Rabbit Diesel Pickup , was hoping the Maverick would be a modern version of it.

Many commercial operators resort to trucks which are smaller and simpler than a Maverick in 3rd-world countries. Needless to say the Fiat Strada has been one of the best-sellers in Brazil.

I wonder if they'll make a single cab, long bed version. That's what I need.
I guess Ford would rather try to push commercial operators into the Ranger with the extended cab there.

Per the spec sheet the non-hybrid Maverick weighs about the same amount as my old full size half ton and canít hold or tow as much

Boo, classic small Ford lead weight itis

It doesn't really surprise me, even though an old half-ton is not featherweight at all.

Maverick eco-drivers: "600 mile club"

I was happy to discover today that some early Maverick hybrid owners are geeking out about the vehicle's fuel economy potential.

One forum has a thread dedicated to getting 600 miles to a tank, equating to about 45 MPG US = 5.2 L/100 km

My brother's SLP bragged that she can drive 650 miles in her truck, but the pump automatically clicks off at $128.

Mom said she can do the same in her car.

The EPA says that she can go 536.5 miles.

There was a similar comment in that forum thread: someone said their F150 was just as capable of doing 600 miles. Ergo, buy an F150 instead of the wussy "truck".

The Airbus A350 can go 11,000 miles on 37,248 gallons of fuel. A fill up is about $178,000

Empty/@minimums or is ithat the efficiency at gross? Big difference.

Is that the also included mandatory 45 minutes to the alternate airport?

I think the Nimitz went 1/2 million miles on it's first tank but it cost 1.5 billion to refuel. Then again it hauls 6000 "passengers". I'd be interested to know how many miles the USS Constitution has traveled on never a drop of feul. Or what is the record for a sailing vessel lifetime miles traveled although all modern boats have an ICE motor in addition to the sails.
