I think comparing the reliability of a Ford to Toyota might be a bit of a stretch. But what do I know. I've never owned a Toyota lol
Ford is 10 years behind Toyota as far as selling hybrids.(according to the googles)
I just looked up the epa numbers for the ecoboost maverick and they're much worse than Fords 40mpg hybrid target.
"So what is the government rating for the Maverick EcoBoost? According to the EPA, it's 23 MPG city and 30 MPG highway for the front-wheel drive version. Combined mileage for the two-wheel drive Maverick EcoBoost is 26 MPG per the agency. As for the all-wheel drive, it's 22 MPG city, 29 MPG highway, and 25 MPG combined." I forgot how to do quote stuff.
Stole that from here https://www.motor1.com/news/534057/f...-fuel-economy/
I'd definately consider a Maverick if I were shopping for a new car around $30k(cad). 40mpg and be able to haul the odd large item around without having to drag a trailer around. Why not?
