  1. Eternal Pessimist Proven Wrong

    For most of my 76 years, I have somehow devolved into eternal pessimism, especially when it comes to government, corporations, and big business. I guess it comes from seeing so much disappointment. We were laughing on another thread about the 45 day email from Ford, and I saw an email pop up...
  2. Hybrid XLT Instrument Cluster

    I know I read a post somewhere on the forum that indicated perhaps there was a change to the screen on the 23 Hybrid XLT, or maybe I did not. I have a 22 EB XLT FX4 with Lux, ORP, etc. and I know that there is a difference. My Hybrid has Lux, CP360, etc. Obviously there is no digital...
  3. New Addition to the Family.

    Well, big brother got a baby sister – sort of since she is about as big as him. After having a 22 XLT EB FX4 with Lux package, moon roof, tow package, off road package, etc. we finally found my wife a 23 XLT Hybrid with Lux package, CP360, DIBL, tinted windows, decals, etc. at a great price...
  4. My Thoughts on MSRP

    There always seems to be hot-button issues on the forum, one of which is paying over MSRP. While negotiating the purchase of a 2023 Maverick Hybrid XLT that someone had ordered and did not take, I got to thinking about MSRP and why people get so bent out of shape. Here are my simple and...
  5. Fun Sunday

    Looks like I will be flying and driving a Hybrid XLT back next week for almost 1,200 miles. Just curious as how far others have had to go ONE WAY.
  6. Might Have Mis-Named Maverick

    You cannot help but to feel for so many who have waited so long for their Mavericks. So many are totally frustrated. Given that, for many, Ford could just call the Maverick an F-series truck - Frustrated 100, 200, 300, 400 for those waiting 100, 200, 300, 400+ days. But the joy when your...
  7. Why Buy a Maverick?

    After living 76 years and having bought around 100 new vehicles for family and business, I pose the question, “Why would you buy a Maverick?” Before I answer it, let me share an insight my old dad gave me when I was a kid. It has 3 things to it and he aced Economics although he never finished...
  8. Like A Happy Parent

    93Nighthawk from SD posted a photo of a painting his mom made of his Maverick, stating that she knew he was proud of his truck. It triggered a thought that I thought I would share. Hopefully, we can take a moment to find something to smile about today. I spent 33 years as a pastor, dealing with...
  9. North Central Texas Maverick Owners

    Do we have any other Maverick owners in Wise, Montague, Wichita or Cooke counties? If so, please respond and maybe we can do a meetup sometime in the near future. I look hard, but have only seen one or two other Mavericks in the area and know there must be more of us.
  10. How to Brighten Infotainment Display?

    I have looked everywhere and cannot find if there is a way to brighten the display. I do find it a bit dim and really struggle with it in bright sunlight. it is fine when it gets real cloudy or dark. Does anyone know if it is a fixed brightness, or can it be adjusted.
  11. Down Memory Lane - Best Bang for the Buck

    Quick trip down memory lane starts with my first new vehicle - 1966 Ford Falcon for a whopping price of $1,714.00. Since that time almost 57 years ago I have bought about 100 new vehicles for myself, family and some for business. I have had some that only us old folks remember - Nash...
  12. Texas Edition Badge for Maverick

    Has anyone designed/created/found a suitable Texas Edition badge for the Maverick? Just cannot bring myself to take one designed for a GM product. My thinking if it is bought in/for Texas, driven in Texas by Texans, gassed up with Texas gas, etc. then it truly qualifies as a Texas Edition...
  13. Exactly what determines dealer allocations?

    Everyone seems to have opinions, but no one addresses the subject directly. Exactly what determines dealer allocations? For instance, my dealer where I have my 23 Hybrid Lariat ordered stated yesterday when I called him, "We have 34 Maverick allocations for December." Does that mean that 34...
