The Ford Maverick has already shown to be a major success for the brand, with both the entry-level hybrid and the more muscular EcoBoost models being appreciated. The 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine that comes standard with the Maverick produces 250 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque.
Those are good figures for a truck of this size but weren’t quite enough for Maverick owner Michael Kildoo who recently took to the 2022+ Ford Maverick Upgrades, Hacks, and Information page on Facebook to show how he had managed to increase power while also improving fuel efficiency.
Kildoo opted for a resonator deletion, twin exhausts, a 4-inch performance intake, and a Pedal Commander tune on his Ford Maverick EcoBoost. He doesn't know exactly how much power the vehicle is putting out at this moment. However, he recently employed a GPS timing gadget to clock a 5.5-second 0-60 mph sprint and a 13.87-second quarter-mile pace.
Similarly striking are the gains in fuel economy. Kildoo tells that he gets 30 mpg on a daily basis. That's a lot better than a standard all-wheel-drive Ford Maverick EcoBoost, which gets 25 mpg on the combined cycle.
