Two reports have come out saying that the Maverick will not be sold in Europe or Australia.

From Automotive News Europe:

A Ford of Europe spokesman told Automotive News Europe that the Maverick will not be exported for sale in Europe.

In Europe, Ford is one of only a few automakers still offering pickups. Its midsize Ranger is currently the best-selling pickup in the region with sales up 44 percent to 12,000 in the first quarter, according to JATO Dynamics market researcher.

Ford will launch a new Ranger next year. As part of its industrial alliance with Volkswagen, it will build a version for VW as a successor to the Amarok.

After a resurgence four years ago, demand in Europe for pickups is plummeting as customers increasingly buy SUVs and crossovers.


From CarAdvice, they say the Maverick won't be on sale initially in Australia but they don't rule out the possibility of it hitting the market at a later date.

The 2022 Ford Maverick dual-cab ute has been officially unveiled, as the smaller companion to one of Australia’s best-selling vehicles, the evergreen Ford Ranger ute – though an Australian launch remains off the table for now.

Slated to go on sale in the US later this year priced from just US$19,995 (AU$25,800), the Maverick doesn't ride on a traditional body-on-frame platform like the larger Ranger and F-150 pick-ups, instead employing the front- and all-wheel-drive C2 architecture used by the Focus small car, Escape medium SUV, Bronco Sport off-road SUV and other Ford passenger cars.

However, despite many of those vehicles being offered in Australia, don't expect to see the Maverick in Australian showrooms, as it is believed to have been engineered solely in left-hand drive – though its shared C2 platform means an eventual right-hand drive model and Australian launch aren't completely out of the question later down the road.
