The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2022 Ford Maverick recasts the pickup as a small, high-efficiency Swiss Army knife. The 2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz is a well thought-out small pickup for those on the fence about just how much utility they really need. The redesigned 2022 Nissan Frontier is thoroughly modernized with big improvements in ride quality and technology.
