Ford Maverick baseplate

Can’t find a baseplate for the new Maverick. Any ideas? Would it be the same as the escape?

just checked.

RECREATIONALLY TOWING
YOUR VEHICLE - HYBRID
ELECTRIC VEHICLE (HEV)
Follow these guidelines if you have a need
for recreational towing. An example of
recreational towing is towing your vehicle
behind a motorhome. These guidelines
ensure that you do not damage the
transmission.
Note: Put your climate control system in
recirculated air mode to prevent exhaust
fumes from entering your vehicle. See
Climate Control (page 126).
You can tow your vehicle with all four
wheels on the ground under the following
conditions:
• You switch Neutral Tow on.
• Your vehicle is facing forward for
towing in a forward direction.
• You release the parking brake.
• You do not exceed 70 mph (113 km/h


Would agree as above, too new so not yet available. you might be able to work a deal to be prototype.

RoadMaster is also wanting to create a baseplate for the Maverick … they’d love to get their hands on one at their Vancouver, WA facility … they’d create one for you for free:

Waiting for a base plate too, the Maverick is supposed to based on the Escape platform? In addition only the fwd hybrid is towable 4 down. It sounds like a great option for a toad!

I've heard that Ford hasn't introduced a 4x4 hybrid yet.

I went online to order one and the Hybrid doest offer AWD.
The Ecoboost engine offers AWD but no mention about 4 down towing.

Hmmm. The Escape hybrid with AWD option is flat towable. It is not "real" 4WD you only can select a driving mode and can't force it into 4WD, only the computer inside the car decides if and when AWD gets engaged. I have the hybrid AWD Escape and so far as I can tell it has never put power to the rear wheels in the first year and 10,000 miles of driving it.

The information I read was that the fwd (front wheel drive) Hybrid is the only Ford Maverick that can be towed 4 down.

The information I pulled down came from the 2022 Maverick Owners Manual. Not all models might be available at launch, might be a later year offering. At least at printing, Ford intended for Hybrid four down towing.

No awd hybrid Maverick yet … maybe later. Will have to wait until then to see if it is towable 4-down …

The fwd hybrid Maverick IS towable 4-down. The non-hybrid is not.

Off topic, I noticed your profile pic, I served in the Navy Sub service as well, on the USS John Marshall SSN 611, then 2 years after I got out, I went in the Army as paratrooper.
