The aftermarket for the Maverick is going to be awesome.
As we saw at this year's SEMA Show in Las Vegas, the 2022 Ford Maverick is primed for aftermarket customization. Ford showed off a full roster of customized Mavericks, including a sporty creation from Tucci Hot Rods (pictured below) that has already garnered several orders from customers. We are excited to see how owners customize their Mavericks in the future, but if you currently have one and want to start with a simple modification, MRT has two new exhaust systems to fit the bill.
Both systems are designed for Maverick models equipped with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder. This engine produces 250 horsepower and 277 lb-ft going out to front- or all-wheel-drive. Unfortunately, MRT doesn't have an exhaust system for the Maverick Hybrid, at least not yet.
The "Sport" exhaust is the cheaper and more aggressive-sounding option of the two. It retails for $635.99 but is currently marked down to $529.99 as of this writing. MRT builds its exhaust using 2.5-inch T304 stainless steel made in the USA, making it corrosion resistant. The sport version features a straight pipe design that's much louder than stock. It doesn't sound throaty like a V8-powered pickup truck, but the Maverick sounds reminiscent of a Focus ST with this exhaust equipped.
Maverick owners who want their truck to be louder than stock without as much drone should opt for the "street" exhaust setup. This exhaust retails for $791.99 but is currently on sale for $659.99. The street version features an axle-back straight muffler design, giving it a noticeable growl that's less overpowering. Like the sport exhaust, the street exhaust is made from corrosion-resistant 2.5-inch T304 stainless steel.
We'd expect these aftermarket exhausts to have a small impact on fuel economy and performance but MRT doesn't mention any specific gains from either system. Combined with an aftermarket tune, the EcoBoost engine can likely produce well over 300 horsepower and will sound like a hot hatchback.
