  1. August Update: 2022 Maverick Verified Orders, Hybrid Production Limit, Dealer Allocations, Constraints

    If they have 2 months of orders... and 60% of production goes to fulfilling existing orders... then it'll take 3 1/3 months to fill the orders. Of course, it depends on the supply chain getting up to speed, and that is a big question mark. I was thinking Q1 '22 but Ford's statement during the...
  2. August Update: 2022 Maverick Verified Orders, Hybrid Production Limit, Dealer Allocations, Constraints

    front wheel drive with snow chains would be better than awd in icy conditions
  3. August Update: 2022 Maverick Verified Orders, Hybrid Production Limit, Dealer Allocations, Constraints

    That would mean production of 300k. Toyota has never sold that many Tacomas in a year. On another note, I visited the Ford dealer in seaside today and they only have 8 cars and trucks on the lot.
  4. August Update: 2022 Maverick Verified Orders, Hybrid Production Limit, Dealer Allocations, Constraints

    Ford announced on an earnings call that they have 80k orders. If that represents 2 months of retail sales orders, then Ford must be planning on building a half a million of these.
  5. Santa Cruz's Are Starting to Arrive

    The CVT on the Mav is part of the hybrid system and is pretty robust. You'll love it.
  6. Atkinson motor and fuel octane

    Ethanol is really stupid. Who on earth came up with the idea "hey, let's burn the food?"
  7. How many of you already own a hybrid vehicle ?

    I have had several hybrids, and by far the best thing about them is not having to fill up the gas tank so often. Pairing a hybrid with a small truck is a match made in heaven. My prediction is that this is the most important new model for Ford since the F150. It will be as significant as the...
  8. Post Your Scheduled For Production & VIN Assigned 2022 Maverick Order! 🤩

    I am the "realist" who will be happy getting his Mav in spring '22... yet here I am checking email every 5 minutes... hoping.
  9. 80k+ Maverick reservations so far! (per Ford's Q2 earnings call)

    This is akin to the VW Bug... they'll sell millions.
  10. Delivery Time Estimates -- first delivery and your delivery?

    The American market is no longer the big swinging dick on the block. We are going to have to wait, like the rest of the world is used to, because there are only enough refined REEs to go around. Even with all the global supply chain issues, I don't think we will have to wait very long.
  11. Is Hyundai Running Scared?

    I bought a Celica ST back in '86... what in the hell was I thinking? I could have bought that 4wd extended cab.
  12. OEM factory floor liners / all-weather floor mats, splash guards / mud flaps / spray-in bedliners (real life pics)

    These look good. I have the latest WeatherTech and they are pretty good, I didn't know about the Maxpider product... i'll give them a try.
  13. 2022 Maverick OKTB (OK To Buy) is approximately 9/15. Stock units will be built first.

    Seems like a smart plan. I'll be happier if I get my First Edition Mav in Spring '22 and the kinks have all been worked out.
  14. 7/23 - Maverick Scheduling Update - No retail orders, but stock orders are scheduling

    I don't think the production problem resolves itself for at least a year. Ford are at the mercy of a supply chain that doesn't see them as first priority. I hope I am wrong, I have an order in too.
  15. Video: Maverick in Velocity Blue (XL) + Iconic Silver, Hot Pepper Red, Cyber Orange -- From Hermosillo Mexico Plant

    If Ford could manufacture the Mav on Fantasy Island where it was assembled by magical gnomes who worked for free... then their labor cost would be zero. Do you think they would sell the Mav for a different price?
  16. 2022MY Maverick Retail Scheduling Will Now Take Place on Thursday, July 29

    I hope I am wrong about the supply chain. I don't think Ford ever made more than about 50k hybrids in a year and there is a lot of competition for REEs and Lithium in the automotive space. The car manufacturers are desperately trying to electrify as quickly as possible and the infrastructure...
  17. 2022MY Maverick Retail Scheduling Will Now Take Place on Thursday, July 29

    There are a lot of geopolitical issues that have come to a head that are way beyond Ford's control. There is a slight danger that production might not recover and ordering a car and waiting, sometimes for years, will become the new normal. I certainly hope not and fingers crossed, Ford will...
  18. Can I still make changes to my Maverick order?

    Get the truck you want... this is a long-term decision.
