Figured as much, my "stg 3" Jstuned st barely does 25. It'd be worth sacrificing the power for some good mpgs, save the smiles per gallon for the focus.

Even 35 would be a massive jump, the 25mpg I get is from taking it easy on an entire tank. I do a lot of driving too so it'd be nice not stacking up milage on my car.
Mavericks are fwd correct?

The Hybrid is FWD only. to get AWD you need to first select the 2.0EB.

Its pretty rosy to me...I currently have an 2019 F150 4x4 crew cab, gets 23 hwy, 18/19 city...not bad for as big as it is...but, I've been looking for a nice 40ish MPG daily driver, and this seems to fit the bill. I just sold my ford ecosport, disappointed with the 28 mpg avg for as small as it was (was AWD). I have a full size bronco on order, that will be my gas hog/cruiser...need something to balance out the mpg's. I am a native Granite stater! grew up around Rochester area. Bob

The premium fuel doesn't really make sense, but I mean isn't this more or less the same powertrain as we've had on the Escape for a while now?

Most people are getting 37/38mpg combined on their 2.5 hybrid Escapes: 2020 Ford Escape MPG - Actual MPG from 70 2020 Ford Escape owners

Factor in the worse aerodynamics and higher weight of the Maverick, and I'm guessing 34mpg combined is realistic. Still pretty amazing considering that's what little Fiat 500 Turbos get, and those have tiny profiles and weigh only 2.5K lbs on skinny tires.

Regular should be fine in both motors
Well, all modern engines can run on 87 octane, as knock sensors are quite advanced now. So if we say that, then technically there are no engines that require 93 octane, since the engine will automatically richen fuel mixtures and retard ignition and do other tricks to compensate at a cost of fuel economy and peak horsepower. Some manufacturers like Mazda are nice in that they even advertise what the horsepower and/or fuel economy loss will be on lower octane for their turbo engines. The Skyactive 2.5T for example loses 23 horsepower going 87 min vs 93 recommended.

Since its pretty much the same as the powertrains on the Escape, you can just look at what Ford recommends: https://media.ford.com/content/dam/fordmedia/North America/US/product/2020/escape/2020-Ford-Escape-Tech-Specs.pdf

Hybrid = 87 octane and 2.0 Ecoboost = 91+ octane

Where's the 40 MPG gallon dance? Pretty damn excited about the city and highway, although lower MPG estimate ratings. With the price of gas HEADING north, it will be a pleasant relief and surprise!
Yeah. Only reason I'm here. Most SUV's have very little actual utility IMO. This is going to have so much flexibility. Love Prius. My current car is a Toyota. Been extremely happy with it, but other than the FJ, or way out of my price range Sequoia the other SUVs don't offer enough utility. Perfect for hauling kids, but I haul a lot more stuff. To be able to do that with 40mpg - amazing. Full electrics aren't for me. Not enough infrastructure yet for where I go and do. Hybrid is perfect for me and hopefully better for the planet.

Yup, my truck gets 15mpg idling sitting on a flatbed trailer being towed down the road. 🤪
I coast up to stop signs....I coast down hills....I watch the tach...I try to get it too 41mph even in a 35 zone just to get too 6th gear and I still only avg 13.6mpg... Can't wait to dump this gas hog..Beautiful truck but I hate the MPG and driving like I have no where to go.......

Maybe 40 mpg with a hypermiling range anxiety driving style. You will be a nuisance on the road. Who will pass you on any road-EVERYONE, including fire trucks and state troopers
If you turn on anything in the vehicle and it’s all a lost hope. Could be possible in little spurts on a strait flat road with zero traffic(are there any left in America) and zero wind, what they will call a legitimate test.I guarantee you will never achieve 500 miles on a single tank. Not even with the gas light on and running it down to nothing, fumes

I don’t think you understand how hybrids work. It has been proven with similar size and weight vehicles it is possible to meet or exceed 40 mpg. The electric motor gets it going, and the gas engine does the easy work. On the highway is where it loses efficiency, estimating 33 mpg.

I have driven a 2011 Ford Escape hybrid all wheel drive for 10 years now. I have mastered the technique of hypermiling feather touch acceleration coasting and never exceeding the posted maximum speed limit This really pisses people off. I have lived in three different states. Americans are all the same no matter where you live-jack rabbit starts and extreme braking. No weight in the vehicle I manage a consistent 27 miles to the gallon 350 per tank I have tried everything and no changes
keep in mind this a well kept suv always parked in the garage 53000 original miles l drive a truck for a living. I have read real mileage figures of owners of Prius niro and ioniq and all don’t deliver what is promised especially in winter time
