2022 Ford Maverick

Ford has officially unveiled its 2022 Maverick compact pickup, which it calls “a new kind of truck for people who never knew they needed a truck.” Maverick is built on a unibody platform with an all-in-one body that forgoes the typical bed-and-cab setup of traditional pickups. Compared to other Ford trucks, Maverick is the kid brother of the bunch, measuring 199.7 inches long overall, compared to 210.8 and 231.7 inches for Ranger and F-150, respectively.

2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz

Today Hyundai released teaser images of its long-anticipated entry into the pickup-truck market, though as it turns out, that entry is a genre-bending vehicle that doesn’t stick specifically to the standard pickup-truck layout.
