Ford fans around the country have been patiently waiting for this day, the day that the 2022 Ford Maverick finally becomes available for purchase. This highly anticipated pickup truck comes standard with an efficient powertrain that consists of a powerful electric motor and a 2.5-litre 4-cylinder gas-powered engine. The interior is both spacious and comfortable and comes with a wide range of useful features including an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display.
The exterior has a stunning and unique design that is sure to turn quite a few heads when travelling down the road. The exterior features a wide range of impressive features, such as 17-inch Sparkle Silver-painted steel wheels. However, the most impressive feature that can be found on the exterior of the Maverick is the versatile and practical Flexbed. Here is a look at how this impressive cargo box can help to make your day more productive.
What is the Flexbed?
The cargo box that comes on every 2022 Maverick model is called the Flexbed. The Flexbed is not only one of the most versatile cargo boxes that Ford has ever created, but is also the most versatile box available on the market today. The bed is 4.5-feet long and can be extended up to 6 feet by lowering the tailgate. This may seem smaller than most cargo boxes, however, it provides several practical features that help to make it one of the most unique and versatile cargo boxes ever made.
The bed features low sidewalls, which make it easy to reach into the bed when you are standing beside it. The tailgate is also easy to lift and shut. If you don't want to put the tailgate all the way down, it can stand in the mid-opened position while holding up to 400 pounds of weight.
Perfect Cargo Bed for DIY Enthusiasts
The cargo box comes equipped with a wide range of innovative features, including threaded bed holes, a power outlet, and even a bottle opener that is built right into the tailgate. Here is a look at how you can use these features to give your truck a customized look, or you could use them to complete a variety of projects.
DIY Bike Rack
The bed has a number of pockets that are carved out into the bed. You can easily slide a 2x4 piece of wood into the pocket to create a DIY bike rack.
DIY Cargo Management System
You can use the other pockets and the six standard tie-downs in the bed to place more wooden planks in order to create your own divider. You can divide the bed into two or three different areas. This will help you to keep all of your cargo organized. You can also easily bolt the DIY system to the bed of the truck by using C-channels.
If you need an easy way to access a power supply, the Maverick has you covered. It comes standard with two 12-volt wires that come with an easy-to-remove cover. The wires can be used to mount your own LED lights inside of the cargo box. They can also be used to power a small fridge or other gadgets. There is also an available 400-watt 110-volt power outlet that can power even more equipment.
Customize the Interior with your own 3D Printer
Not only is the Maverick's cargo box impressive, but this stunning truck also features a versatile and customizable interior as well. Behind the console and under the seats, drivers will find a series of slots and storage bins. These unique design features are part of the Ford Integrated Tether System (FITS).
With FITS, drivers can choose from a wide range of Ford accessories to help customize the interior of their vehicle. Can't find a certain accessory in a specific colour or style? No problem. Ford offers downloadable CAD files that you can use with your 3D printer, or send to a third-party company that specializes in 3d printing. This way, you can create a wide variety of high-quality accessories that will fit your individual style and needs.
