Video: Will the 2023 Ford Maverick ST High Performance Mini-truck Come to Production?

Could it have a twin-turbo V6 under its hood?

2023 ford maverick st prototype

These spy images may be showing an upcoming 2023 Ford Maverick ST high-performance prototype mini-truck. Take a look.

The prototype is riding on what appears to be a lowered suspension. It has large camouflaged wheels with sporty-looking low-profile tires. This pickup may also have a wider track because the fender flairs are more prominent and are also camouflaged. The rear bumper on this Maverick test truck is not like on the current production version. The prototype bumper appears to be housing cutouts for a dual exhaust system.

What’s under the hood of this prototype? We do not know for sure. It may be any number of turbocharged engine options. It may be a high-performance 2.0-liter turbocharged gas I4 engine. It may be a sporty 2.3-liter turbocharged I4 engine. It may also be a twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 that is also used in the Ford Edge ST. No matter what, we are predicting about 300-330 horsepower for this hot street truck.

Let us know what you think in the comments below. Should Ford produce and sell a Maverick ST pickup? Should Ford continue to make more off-road-worthy versions of the Maverick, such as the Maverick Tremor or something along those lines?
