Ford Maverick Adds a New Edition to Tribute to a Famous Movie

The Blue Oval introduces a new performance version of the 2023 Ford Maverick – the Top Gun Edition serving as a tribute to the popular movie franchise of Paramount Pictures “Top Gun: Maverick “(2022).

The Top Gun Edition tops the range of the 2023 Ford Maverick which will be available at dealerships in the fourth quarter of this year.

Buyers of this version will receive VHS copies of both films – the original of 1986 and the franchise of 2022, as well as a 10-year subscription to Paramore+. Moreover, Ford will launch a lottery system through a dedicated site for would-be owners in the coming months.

As Ford Authority informs, the Ford Maverick Top Gun Edition model comes with a 2.3L EcoBoost I-4 producing 295 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. This engine is mated to a specially tuned 8-speed automatic transmission with a ‘Sport Ultra’ mode in addition to all other modes the FX4 Package offers. To better the drag coefficient of this edition, the carmaker lowered the suspension and upgraded shocks.

The visual tweaks include graphics on a tailgate, a hood, and sides of the bed, a special themed character line, available Code Orange and Forged Green colors, and embroidered Top Gun logos in the cabin.

A famous phrase “You can take that to the Danger Zone, suckers!” by movie hero Maverick will play upon startup. The quote is not allowed to deactivate, otherwise, the warranty will be void.  

Ford will build the Maverick Top Gun Edition at its Louisville Assembly Plant on a dedicated line. The price will start at around $40,000 and end at just under $70,000 with all options added.
