  1. Dear Ford, Please let us move the back-up collision sensor image

    I have noticed a design flaw in the user interface on the back-up camera if you have the back-up collision sensors. The little icon that shows you how close you are is displayed right in the middle of the view of the street in ALL situations in which the parking spots are at an angle. I cannot...
  2. Why Mavericks are Hot (The Affordability Crisis) [⚠️ ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS]

    Excellent piece from Car Dealership Guy on the decline in affordable vehicles. Visit the link but I shared a couple interesting bits below. Makes sense why a low-cost truck would be selling faster than Ford can make them. Also interesting that Ford would up their capacity on Maverick at all...
  3. Six Months with Maverick

    Wow, today marks six months and boy did it sneak up on me! The drama with the Explorer kept me distracted for a while that I didn’t realize I had my Maverick for as long as I have. I like my little truck. Since we use the Explorer for trips, the Maverick has been relegated to local driving and...
  4. Kia Canada Purposefully Withholding Deliveries to Avoid Looking Too Successful

    With Ford news being a little slow, figured people would be interested in this piece of industry gossip: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/kia-canada-car-sales-1.7063216 Instead of shipping all the vehicles to dealerships, [Kia's central region manager Vince] Capicotto told the dealers only some...
  5. 11/30/23 Scheduling Email Received Group [EMAILS NOW ARRIVING!]

    I noticed "fleet" in the scheduling notes. Let's hope it is just the scraps as EB orders could be getting limited after today (allocations pending, of course). Highest VIN beforehand: 303XX Highest VIN Reported: 563XX Please copy & paste the bullets below & provide the following info when you...
  6. 11/16/23 Scheduling Email Received Group [POSTPONED TO 11/30]

    I honestly think Ford will not do two full months of scheduling today. So, this might be wave 1. However, next Thursday is Thanksgiving. So then again, maybe... Highest VIN beforehand: 30,3XX Highest VIN Reported: XXXXX Please copy & paste the bullets below & provide the following info when...
  7. Ram 1500 Ramcharger coming in 2025

    Note: not a direct competitor to Maverick, but an indication of where market is heading. Only just announced so still a lot of questions. Full Electric Ram with gas motor that only charges the battery. This, honestly, is likely the best option for truck users. 14,000lbs tow 130 kW generator 92...

    Ford's website has gotten a little more useful. Those basic status's haven't been on this page before.
  10. 9/21/23 Scheduling Email Received Group [EMAILS UNLIKELY!]

    Ford appears set to schedule some more this week. Though, it'll be interesting to see if many do given Ford scheduled >10,200 last week. Highest VIN beforehand: 19,300 Highest VIN Reported: TBD Please copy & paste the bullets below & provide the following info when you announce that you...
  11. Bruce has some go to him

    For some non-strike talk.... Wife and I were driving to the local airbase to get groceries when I needed to get up to speed on the interstate. I decided to put it in sports mode before heading out and my wife was amazed how much acceleration the 2.0L with AWD has. Especially since we were...
  12. 9/14/23 Scheduling Email Received Group [EMAILS NOW ARRIVING!]

    Will be scheduling for November. Ford has announced no constraints beyond the known items. Will be interesting to see if Ford tempers plans to account for any possible strike impact.

  13. "Bruce" Finally Earning Its Keep

    I finally used my Maverick as a truck today. 18.5 MPG on the interstate with ACC set to 69 MPH. Roughly 2,000 pounds.
  14. Exceedingly Long Oversimplified Explanation of Maverick Order Allocations

    It’s that time of year again. People who have rollover orders get upset that someone with a new order was scheduled ahead of them. But why did that happen? Below is an oversimplified explanation of allocations. I note that I do not work for Ford. The devil is in the details, but this should...
  15. 8/24/23 Inaugural MY24 Scheduling Email Received Group [EMAILS NOW ARRIVING!]

    Since @theway-yay-ting hasn't done it yet (preferably someone with a MY24 order could resume these). Please copy & paste the bullets below & provide the following info when you announce that you received your email: ⏰ Time email was received (include time zone!) 📅 Your scheduled build week...
  16. Hello, Bruce.

    After naming the Escape "Eskapay" because of how Dory pronounced it in Finding Nemo, I decided the name the Explorer "Dory" because I'm a dad and "Dory the Explorer" made me chuckle. Well, we accidentally hit a theme. So, the Maverick is now "Bruce" and I finally got a decal for its namesake:
  17. Nerd warning: Model Year 2023 calculations to-date (and what it means for 2024 Maverick orders)

    tl;dr: If you want your MY24 order scheduled, drop the constraints and make sure your dealer has enough allocations. <nerd> 95XXX is the highest VIN so far. That means Ford scheduled 95,000+ Mavericks. That is an average of 9,500 Mavericks per month since December. Only twice during MY22 did...
  18. Official Keypad Feedback Thread

    @fordvideoguy mentioned last night that Ford is looking for feedback on the SecuriCode Keyless-Entry Keypad removal from the Maverick. Personally, I think it is a mistake. I have used the function multiple times with the Escape, especially when kayaking or hiking. It allows me to leave not only...
  19. Scheduling in July for Balance Out (through end of model year) - Hitch and Hybrid Improved

    According to Tim, Ford will be scheduling through the end of model year when they do scheduling in July. Hitch and hybrid availability will be improved. Hopefully they will do scheduling week of July 10, which would mean you will know you are getting one before order banks open. My advice: If...
  20. Double the Fun

    So, I was in the group that got a delayed email after my truck went into production two weeks ago. A status it is still in while I see trucks after it being shipped. I could call the dealership, but my regularly scheduled Explorer pester isn't until Friday. I have not been overly concerned as...
