Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more with the Ford Maverick than the Toyota Tacoma. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Ford Maverick and the Toyota Tacoma.

Convenience
The Toyota Tacoma requires less frequent visits to the gas station than the Ford Maverick, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Ford Maverick is a better financial choice over the Toyota Tacoma, when considering MSRP.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Maverick is much slimmer than the Toyota Tacoma, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Ford Maverick, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Tacoma.

Handling
The Ford Maverick has a similar turning radius to the Toyota Tacoma, so both should maneuver just as easily in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota Tacoma is clearly the choice over the Ford Maverick for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Maverick is clearly outclassed by the Toyota Tacoma.

Powertrain
The Ford Maverick offers much less torque than the Toyota Tacoma, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit the same number of people in the Ford Maverick as you will the Toyota Tacoma.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Ford Maverick over that of the Toyota Tacoma.
