The Bronco Sport is rated by the EPA at 25 mpg in the city, 28 mpg on the highway, and 26 mpg combined. Since the Maverick is using the same platform its mpg shouldn't be too far off from that.

My guess is that it'll be rated at 23 mpg in the city, 26 on the highway and 24 mpg combined. Anyone else have any guess on what it'll be?

The Bronco Sport is AWD only right?

If so, then it should offer about the same fuel economy because we'll see an improvement in MPGs but the larger size will then drag it back down a bit.

I'll say
26/29/27

Yup the Bronco Sport only comes in AWD. I'm glad they didn't offer it in FWD like the Escape.

Optional all-wheel-drive is the way to go, it's what Hyundai did to the Santa Cruz.

I think awd vs awd Bronco sport vs Maverick you will see about a 1-2mpg drop due to the bed. But fwd should net you about the same, city still SLIGHTLY worse highway.
Either way great numbers for a truck.

and as far as competition I think the 1.5L will get better mpg than the Santa Cruz N/A

So now that this is a hybrid, or at least one version is a hybrid... any idea on what kind of MPG it might get?

id guess
(City, Highway, Combined)
1.5L FWD 26/31/28
1.5L AWD 24/27/25
2.0L AWD 20/25/22
2.5L Hybrid FWD 40/30/36

Based on 2mpg or so worse Than the Bronco sport. And 4 worse than the Escape. Just a guess but I think I’m within +/-2mpg

If they tune the Maverick to deliver more power than the Bronco on the lower end then that could eat into the MPG rating as well.
