Buy This $85,000 Ford Maverick And Bring Minitrucking Back To Life

Minitrucking was a big deal back in the era when people were saying “whack,” “yo diggity,” and “tubular.” It died off for a while there, as the American obsession with full-size “work trucks” grew out of control. The Ford Maverick could be bringing it back, though, and this SEMA build is very much in that vein. Even better, it could be yours!

Yes, this 2022 Ford Maverick is listed on Facebook Marketplace all the way down in Austin, Texas. The vehicle has a laundry list of sponsors, including Saleen Performance Parts, JBL Audio, Toyo Tires, and 3D Carbon. The truck is finished in eye-catching Calypso Green, with vinyl graphics and splashes of hot pink taking things deliciously over the edge.

Basically, if you were going to put a Maverick in a Fast and the Furious film, this wouldn’t be a bad start.

Body mods are sporty without being overdone. It gets a tight front air dam, along with side skirts and a sweet ducktail bed spoiler. The pink lipstick on the grill is a touch while the fender vents and flares add to the stance. Tucked under the guards are 22-inch TSW Daytona wheels wearing Toyo Proxes STIII tires.

As with any good SEMA build—or minitruck—the Maverick also boasts height-adjustable air bag suspension and a “wake tower.” Basically, it’s a big rollbar you can raise up with a button that has a bunch of JBL speakers on it.

The build was the work of Leif Johnson Ford, which took it upon itself to modify the Maverick for the 2022 SEMA show. It was the dealership’s first attempt at such a build, as per their YouTube channel. The team behind the build actually designed their own bodykit from scratch—no surprise, given the Maverick was brand new for 2022.

It appears the dealership is now done with this show pony, so what will it cost you? Well, they’re asking a hefty $85,000. One suspects they haven’t had a lot of inquiries at that price level, given the ad has been up for 7 weeks at the time of writing.

It is a very cool Ford Maverick, that much is certain. Is it worth a great multiple of the original purchase price? That’s harder to argue.

The “wake tower” has JBL marine speakers to bring the tunes.

Not exactly an $85,000 interior.

Still, it’s rad to see the minitrucking spirit alive with great builds like these. If you decide to pursue something similar yourself, be sure to let us know.

Compared to all the other oversized American trucks, sure the Maverick might be considered a “minitruck” but the Mini and Acty you linked are six feet shorter!

That price is absurd. It seems like some GM was against the project and is now forcing it to pay for itself.
