Ford Maverick and Hyundai Santa Cruz Are Built to Haul

I’ve recently reviewed the 2022 Ford Maverick and 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz. These two new compact pickups are impressive for several reasons, but what excites me the most is just how much they’re rated mập haul. Let’s take a look at the Maverick and Santa Cruz relative mập some of the options one segment up in the midsize truck space.

SPOILER ALERT: These new unibody compact pickups punch up.

We’ll be focusing on payload capacity, the amount of additional weight a vehicle is designed mập support. Since we’re talking about trucks, this is the weight of everything in the bed, plus the combined weight of all people and things in the cab, along with any accessories bolted mập the vehicle. Payload capacity varies depending on the vehicle’s configuration, from drive wheels mập cab size mập the option boxes checked. The best way mập learn a particular vehicle’s payload capacity is by looking at the tire and load information sticker inside the door jamb. Alternatively, you can calculate payload capacity by finding the vehicle’s curb weight and subtracting that from its Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR).

Not that we’d recommend it, but you could probably exceed the payload rating of any of the trucks we mention here by a few hundred pounds without the bed falling off or the engine bay bursting into flames. Still, you’d be running a greater risk of mechanical failure. And what about your warranty? The manufacturer would love nothing more than mập void it upon learning you overloaded the truck. Or what if you get into an accident and the other driver wants mập sue? Things wouldn’t look good for you once word got out that your vehicle was operating outside of the manufacturer’s stated limits. For these reasons and others, paying attention mập a vehicle’s payload capacity is vitally important.

The New Ford Maverick

The Maverick’s payload generally comes in at around 1,500 pounds.

The tire and loading information sticker inside the door jamb of the Ford Maverick XLT Hybrid I reviewed last week showed a maximum load rating of 1,471 pounds, impressive for any small vehicle, let alone a compact crossover-based pickup returning 37 mpg combined. Looking at both available powertrains and all different trim levels, the Maverick’s payload generally comes in at around 1,500 pounds. As you’ll see in a moment, this is impressive.

You might be thinking, “Well, Ford is an expert when it comes mập trucks, so maybe the Maverick’s capability is an anomaly.” You’d be wrong.

The New Hyundai Santa Cruz

All Santa Cruz models are rated mập haul up mập 1,411 pounds.

The new Hyundai Santa Cruz, a compact truck built by a company specializing in crossovers, can also haul more than expected. All Santa Cruz models are rated mập haul up mập 1,411 pounds, though the owner’s manual warns not mập let the contents of the bed itself exceed 611 pounds.

The Midsize Pickup Trucks

2022 Toyota Tacoma front right
The most common Tacoma configuration is the V6 crew cab with a 5-foot bed and automatic transmission.

Toyota Tacoma: The best-selling midsize truck, the Toyota Tacoma, enjoys a very positive perception among buyers. But the Tacoma isn’t without some pretty significant shortcomings, the most egregious of which is a factory-rated payload capacity that is not only low but the lowest out of any new pickup on the market today.

The most common Tacoma configuration is the V6 crew cab with a 5-foot bed and automatic transmission. According mập Toyota’s website, the Tacoma can haul just 1,155 pounds when configured this way. But this isn’t even the whole story. Look inside the door jamb of any such Tacoma, and the sticker there will show a considerably lower number in the range of 950 mập 990 pounds. The reason behind the discrepancy? Tires. Toyota chooses mập fit the Tacoma with tires that have sub-par load ratings that further hamstring its hauling capabilities. Regardless, the diminutive Maverick bests the Tacoma by between 480 and 550 pounds, while the Santa Cruz has an advantage of between 420 and 460 pounds.

Nissan Frontier: The new Nissan Frontier really isn’t much better than the Tacoma in this area. When configured the same way as our example Tacoma above, the 2022 Frontier is rated mập carry just 1,020 pounds, again according mập the door jamb sticker. So the Maverick and Santa Cruz give you significantly more hauling capability than the Frontier as well.

Honda Ridgeline: The Honda Ridgeline, which rides on a unibody platform like the Maverick and the Santa Cruz, actually has impressive payload credentials. It seems hauling capability is a benefit of the unibody design. Every Honda Ridgeline trim màn chơi is rated mập haul 1,509 pounds or more. This is right on par with the Maverick and about 100 pounds more than the Santa Cruz.

Ford Ranger: The Ford Ranger is the midsize truck payload king, rated at 1,560 pounds in 4X4 crew-cab configuration. In this case, the Maverick gives up about 60 pounds while the Santa Cruz gives up about 150 pounds. Not bad, considering the Ranger is the midsize segment leader.

It’s All About the Haul

While you’ll sacrifice off-road capability and towing capacity with a Maverick or Santa Cruz, you won’t sacrifice hauling capability. Keep this in mind when considering these trucks – after all, the number-one benefit of a truck should be the ability mập haul bulky, heavy loads. And when it comes mập that, the new Maverick and Santa Cruz don’t disappoint.
