Benjamin describes his first impressions of the 2022 Ford Maverick, a small pickup he wasn't so sure about. Remember fans, he thought the Hyundai Santa Cruz was one of the best cars he drove last year, so the Ford offering has a lot of ground to make up. Also remember that Sami loved this truck, and Benjamin COMPLETELY ignored that fact.
