  1. $100k Truck vs. $25k Truck

    Look what just parked next to me. A Rivian. Almost exactly the same size as the Maverick. Not quite the same price. He did have suspension set to "low" but body height and bed height was identical to a stock Maverick. The crew cab was just a couple inches longer. Front bumpers and...
  2. Cold Battery? No Problem!

  3. When Two Mavericks Crash

    When two equally weighted Mavericks crash head on each doing 50 mph, what would the force of impact feel like? Vote in the poll. Do not comment until after December 1, 2022. Give people time to vote. Thanks. Edit: Thanks to all who participated AND refrained from debating today. I'm ok with...
  4. Highest # of gallons pumped

    What is the highest number of gallons pumped into an Ecoboost Maverick? The discussion over in the hybrid drive train is the Hybrids are holding up to 16.5 gallons. More than advertised. Are Ecoboosts getting more gallons in the tank than advertised as well? Or did both trucks end up with the...
  5. Tested: HV Battery Loss while Parked

    I wanted to know how much HV battery charge is lost while parked. Theory: The HV battery would self discharge at a more or less constant rate, and we would know what to expect; via a formula; while parked for long intervals. I used an OBDII reader, a ScanGaugeIII to read and manually record...
  6. DIY Grabby Brakes Fix (for Hybrid Maverick)

    DIY Grabby Brakes Fix I swear this works for me. For at least 15 out of 15 days. When able, when safe, as soon as possible on your first drive of the day, get up to 25 or 30 mph, look behind you, then BRAKE FIRMLY. No need to screech the tires or evoke ABS. Brake briskly enough to exceed...
  7. Myths Busted

    Starting a myths busted page. Hopefully it becomes a sticky. Myth: "You get lots of recharging going down the mountains." FALSE These batteries are TINY capacity. The battery is FULL in 20 or 30 seconds. The battery is drained in most cases in 20 or 30 seconds of putting power to the...
  8. Tested: Slippery Mode is best for highest MPG (in Hybrid Maverick)

    Hello folks- I did a few well controlled tests on my 2022 Hybrid Maverick to explore the features of the different modes. I now drive in slippery mode ALL THE TIME. If top MPG matters to you; maybe you will too. I have a ScanGauge III attached to the OBDII port and see data in real time from...
  9. A/C stuck on? Help?!

    My Air Conditioning always defaults to on after every key cycle (every start). I don't want A/C at 5 AM. I want to make up my own mind the rest of the time. Anyone else's do this? Is it a user option in one of the menus? Do I have to go to a dealer to "program" the truck not to do this...
  10. I Found the Unicorn

    I ordered (well, pre-ordered) my exact Maverick I wanted on Saturday Sept. 10, and drove it HOME Tuesday Sept. 13. I had a 3 day wait for my perfect, first choice of Maverick. It is a 2022 of course with a July build date. Got it at the NEAREST Ford Dealer, 10 miles from my home. Perfect...
