  1. Jan. 13 Scheduled Orders - Data Points (from Long McArthur Ford)

    Promising report; if the next 2 weeks equal or exceed yesterday’s report, and stays steady…the weeks in February may contain a lot of grins. Thanks for the continued attention.
  2. 📣 1/13 Scheduling Email Received Group [EMAILS NOW ARRIVING!]

    And so another entertaining Scheduling Thursday has passed and I've intentionally skimmed past any Scheduling celebration that contains verbiage such as "Ecoboost, 2.0, 4K Tow package, AWD and 4WD", as they don't apply to the Hybrid option and I'm definitely a Hybrid Wannabe. Congrats to those...
  3. 📣 1/13 Scheduling Email Received Group [EMAILS NOW ARRIVING!]

    to bgillen35: nice 'Sounds of Silence' reference and while noting that you, too, are a late September Lariat Lux Hybrid order, I'm hoping to see a few September hybids scheduled today. But unfortunately, as S & G warned And no one dared Disturb the sound of silence so we'll sit and wait...
  4. December 2021 Scheduling Numbers Analyzed

    As a September 2021 Lariat Lux Hybrid ‘wanna be’, I saw that original solo Hybrid Order from September, hiding within the last Scheduling surge from 3+ weeks ago. IIRC, something looked hinky about that particular Hybrid order, perhaps it was the claim the poster had “heard from his...
  5. Article: Popularity of Ford Maverick Hybrid pickup a 'big' surprise for the industry, even Ford

    (thoughts waiting for Thursday's Scheduling winners to be revealed...) Perhaps things have changed, but Headline Editors use words to create buzz (click bait?), whereas Writers attempt to convey content and deliver a message. And thus we have 'stunned' in a headline when the content stated...
  6. Don’t buy from Brondes Toledo

    Tacking on...my wife stumbled upon a Facebook post (uh oh...) from a NW suburban Chicagoland group, with a member selling a used one-owner Lariat Lux EB with 10,000 miles on it for $44,000. There were only 2 comments, both were similar "I can buy 2 XL's for that price". Thought I could...
  7. 2022 Maverick Order Tracking List & Stats [Enter Yours!]

    Late to the Order Tracking Entry party… ordered 9/21/2021 Hybrid Lariat Lux, roll up tonneau, SIBL, tow receiver, Carbonized Grey, moon roof, full size spare. Additional bells, whistles and kazoos…just can’t find the paperwork at time if writing… This could become the only Lariat with these...
  8. 📈 Maverick December 2021 Sales & Production Numbers: 6,030 Sold / 5,491 Produced

    I sent the link of this thread to my Salesman moments ago, if only to keep some electricity in the channel. I said, and I believe, that the Hermosillo numbers from Sept-Dec bode well for Q1 '22 production numbers...and beyond. I ended my email with "this makes me think there's a chance that...
  9. 📈 Our 2022 Maverick Order Stats / Take Rates From 4,000+ Submissions

    Illinois not making this ’Top 10’ explains why there hasn’t been a Maverick spotted in the wild. There has been 4 EB’s spotted on 3 Dealer lots, including my dealer, who had 2! I Probably confused him with the ‘thanks no thanks, I’ll wait till you have my horse (hybrid)’ response when he asked...
  10. Anyone Else Love The "No Gas, No Squeegee" Commercial?

    Happy New Year! (as this area awaits 9" of snow...). This is waaaaay off topic, but the Gremlin references provoked multiple grins ("hey buddy, where's the rest of your car" for 1). Bought a used '72 X, put an additional 120,000 miles on it, rebuilt the body with a friend over a winter (kids...
  11. 607,568 in 1966

    Thursday January 13, 2022, the day full Scheduling resumes, just can’t come soon enough…
  12. Dumbest review of the day from Motorious.com

    Country logic: “opinions are like a-holes, everyone’s got one”. that said, it would be fascinating imho to see the demographic and regional stats of the 2021 Maverick numbers. Age, sex, city/state, (desigate) Urban, city, suburban, country and/or ‘way out in the country’ for starters. Then...
  13. 🔺 Price Increase: 2022 Maverick XLT, Lariat, Options & Packages (For Orders Placed Beginning 12/27)

    Merry Christmas! Nice to know the kazoo I ordered 9/21 has been price protected. It said so in the Bulletin I read…and comprehended.
  14. Update on free Ford FITS accessory kit availability for delayed Hybrid Maverick delivery

    On this topic... I called Marketing yesterday ('just because'), confirmed I'm still queue and then recommended this communication 'fix' if she knew someone in Dearborn with the stroke to enact a simple fix: Ford should have emailed the Dealer's Salesperson as a 'cc' with the emails we (the...
  15. Detailed Look & Description of Maverick Hybrid Undercarriage Bottom and Engine Bay

    Because Gallows Humor is still humor, the explanation at the 4:28 mark of the "Open or Closed Casket Pole" (non-conducting and used to drag the body out from under the truck) was hilarious. I won't be messing with the Orange Cables...
  16. Hybrid won't run. Sitting at dealer (now running after a month at dealership)

    Interesting to see the underside connections and interactions. I'm certain Jiffy Lube et al will love removing and reattaching the 15 bolts that connect the bottom cover so an oil change can be completed. There's leaks/drips from the rear of the truck that show up @ 2:52. With the drama of...
  17. Any Insights when to hope for Build Dates for Orders After August?

    The upcoming January 13 & 20 Scheduling flurry will provide hints to whether my 9/21 order will get scheduled in February or March…or April. It contains a couple of stated constraints that won’t be changed, ‘cuz the stubborn gene has been activated. May Day to drive it off the lot would be...
  18. Maverick Fuel Tank Official Recall : 5,456 Units w/ Spray-In Bedliner Affected

    Good Summary of the actions that created the 'Stop!' order, and the 'fix' to fix. These items stand out, with interpretation, IMHO: * Ground Effects (GFX) is the 'offsite' SIBL supplier, who decided to use a "not-approved" method to clear 9 holes plugged during the process [big "oops!"] *...
  19. Constraints / Commodities For January 2022

    [Now Stubbornly dug in, sticking to original order, as generated] Fast forward 20 years… Mecum Auctions, the on air voice saying “this next beauty is the rare Maverick Hybrid Lariat Lux with Ford built Spray In Bed Liner, an option that caused a panic in late 2021 that historians put on a par...
