There’s no denying just how popular the Ford Maverick has been. As a small truck, it offers compact sizing and an affordable price tag. In fact, it took the 2023 Maverick a little over a week to sell out, forcing Ford to close customer orders. Plus, the Maverick is probably the closest thing we will get to a ute here in the United States.

What is a ute?

A ute is essentially a car-based pickup truck. Instead of being based on a body-on-frame platform, a ute rides on a unibody platform. In the traditional sense, the bed is also integrated with the passenger body. Essentially giving you a car with the utility of a pickup bed.

Utes were first popularized in Australia, and to this day, they remain a common site. The story goes that in 1934 a farmer and his wife wanted a vehicle that could haul farm animals to the market but still be appropriate to take to church on Sunday. And none other than Henry Ford obliged them, setting the scene for these kinds of weird vehicles.
