The Maverick was described as "virtually unchanged", however two new options are added this year. These included the 302 V8 and the Luxury Decor Option (LDO). The LDO included bodyside moldings, special wheel covers, white wall tires and low-back bucket seats. Sales were down 17,000 units for 1972. Red, white, and blue sprint trim package is available for this year only.
