2022 Ford Maverick: 1-inch Leveling Kit vs. 2-inch Lift Kit

There's no doubt about it—the 2022 Ford Maverick is a great truck. It offers a lot of bang for its buck, but you may be wondering, "What can I do to give my Ford Maverick the right look, feel, and attitude?" The answer is simple, add a Rough Country leveling lift kit. By elevating your Ford Maverick, you'll be able to clear larger tires, increase ground clearance and wheel travel, and change the aesthetic of your vehicle. These simple additions will transform it into an off-road vehicle with even more capability than it already has!

By definition, Maverick means "unorthodox," and that's exactly what Ford has in this subcompact truck. Pricing starts at under $20.000, and even when it is well-equipped, it's still slightly under $30,000. We took a base model and adjusted the attitude and the altitude.

1-Inch Leveling Kit

First, we added a 1-inch leveling kit which allows us to run 245/65R17 Falken WildPeak on a 17X9 Alpha wheel. This makes the truck look a little more aggressive and more like a truck. Not everyone needs a super-duty truck, but everybody could use a truck. Sometimes you just need something that has good seating, a usable bed, and movability. With the subcompact Maverick, you get just that.

2-Inch Leveling Lift Kit

Next, we took the Maverick slightly higher with a 2-inch leveling lift kit. The 2-inch kit picks up where the 1-inch kit left off. With the 1-inch kit, we brought the front up level with the rear. The 2-inch kit allows you to bring the entire truck up another inch, allowing you to run a 245/70R17 tire.

So, the final verdict? A 1-inch leveling kit is a great way to improve the look of your Ford Maverick truck and give it a bit more height without making too much of a change. If you're looking for something that will provide you with a bigger lift and make your truck look even better, go with the 2-inch lift kit. Whether you are contemplating purchasing a Maverick, or you've already got one sitting in the driveway when you’re ready to truck it up, check out Rough Country for your leveling lift kit needs.

I'm still waiting for my Maverick. I would like to lift the body for appearance only. I will have AWD, will any of the drive train mechanics be negatively affected . Also how about mileage due to air flow? Thanks Robert

Rough Country July 27, 2022

Robert, Thanks for reading! A small lift or leveling kit ( our 1" or 2" ) will not negatively impact the drive train. We do not have the data on mileage impact, but there should not be much impact if you go with the small lift or leveling kits.

I have a Maverick Hybrid and I would like to lift it up but, will this package work with the hybrid version or no. Thanks Radley

Rough Country September 2, 2022

Radley, although this kit will not fit the Hybrid, our techs are working on one. Thanks for reading the blog, and keep checking back for news on kits and products for the Pro-4X.

it is necessary to install bigger tires with the one inch kit or we still can use the factory ones?

Rough Country January 31, 2023

Lio, Thanks for reading our Maverick post! With our 1-inch kit, you can run the factory tires.

I have a 2022 Maverick. AWD 17,500 miles, love every mile! Just had the 1” leveling kit installed. Looks very nice! Was advised to install the 2” kit was more involved and much more expensive. I get concerned about making changes on a new vehicle under warranty! ???? Total cost was $600. Satisfied! I’m 72yoa male stepping down from a larger truck!

Dale, Thanks for your comment! We're glad you like your Maverick and also glad you're satisfied with the leveling kit. Enjoy your new ride!
