This is the final year for the Maverick with 98,506 made. There were no changes for this year. Ford creates a Maverick Police Package. About 350 cars are made with heavy duty suspension, alternator and a 250cid I6 or 302V8. The Maverick does not fair well as police vehicle as Ford does not offer limited slip or better handling for the police package. The same neglect that ford showed in offering performance equipment causes the quick demise of the Maverick police package.

Comet production fell to 21,545 in its final year.
