I doubt it saves much in gas overall. I mean really all it does is make the throttle less responsive, and shift points lower in the RPM range right? A guy could do the same thing with the old kicker.. I mean, you could just drive like gas costs $4 a gallon…..wait….☹️
I was driving around with the wife today and a very attractive woman walking across the parking lot was staring and smiling at us. My wife said ‘damn, that girl is checking you out!’…… I said nah, babe…. It’s the truck. 😢
She wanted it…..lol
Oh for sure there’s a noticeable difference. My ‘17 Escape had sport mode with the paddle shifters and it was fun to drive and very peppy. I’ve watched a few videos on YouTube with the Mav doing speed runs but I don’t think any of them have really compared the difference or even noted which mode...
Take it to the dealer and have your battery replaced. Mine was doing the same thing from day one. The sales manager told me unless the battery is operating at peak performance, the stop start system won’t work all the time. They replaced it within the first week. Since then it’s been working 100%.
Don’t worry. The only guys calling it a “trucklette” are the ones driving $80,000 bro-dozers with $40,000 worth of useless “mods” trying to keep up with the Instagram flat brim cap crowd. The Mav can do 90% of what they use their status symbols for at 1/4 the price.
Well, Sir, I do have my Maverick, and it came with a manual. I’m curious why a lot of people come to the internet for answers they can find in the book included with the truck. No offense to you personally.
