I was wondering is the reason Ford didn’t release an AWD Hybrid because of cost? The Hybrid power plant is matched with an eCVT transmission because it’s more fuel efficient but more importantly, less expensive. The good thing is it’s passed down to the consumer with a low base-price.

One of the obstacles of an AWD Hybrid is this eCVT and also the reason you can’t order the 4K towing, in the Hybrid variant. I don’t want to say it’s a weak link becasue it’s really just better suited for a vehicle focused on fuel efficiency.

My question: Is it really worth it? To speculate on the additional cost, it must be considerable. Enough to make Ford focus on the first model year being configured more for a low MSRP and MPG.

Expect to see an AWD hybrid in next model year. The eCVT isn't really an obstacle for AWD as other manufacturers use an electric motor to drive rear wheels or it could utilize AWD system from existing Ford hybrids. If there it a demand for AWD in the Maverick H then Ford will be only too happy to make them.
