What’s Your Ford Maverick Pickup Drive Mode?

The Ford Maverick™ pickup was built to deliver versatility. So whether you’re navigating city streets, exploring a national park or anywhere in between, you’ll find a drive mode that’s engineered for the terrain you find yourself driving on.

  • Normal: Made for everyday driving, this is the perfect setting for getting around or away.

  • Tow/Haul: This mode ensures you can stay in control while you’re towing and wherever you’re hauling.

  • Slippery: Switch to this mode to take on wet and icy roads with confidence. This mode can also be used for crossing terrain where a firm surface is covered with loose, wet or slippery material. Slippery mode lowers throttle response and optimizes shifting for slippery surfaces.

  • Eco: This mode monitors changes in shifts and speeds, then adjusts the engine and transmission performance to help maximize fuel efficiency.

  • Sport: This mode increases accelerator pedal response and provides a sportier steering feel. The powertrain system holds onto lower gears longer, helping the vehicle accelerate faster.

The available FX4 Off-Road Package gives you access to these additional drive modes, which work by engaging the AWD lock:

  • Mud & Ruts: This mode enhances vehicle performance to traverse muddy, rutted or uneven terrains.

  • Sand: Engage this mode for off-road driving on soft, dry sand or deep snow.

Always consult the Owner’s Manual before off-road driving, know your terrain and trail difficulty, and use appropriate safety gear.
