I agree Alto is best match for Lariat interior. But too dark of an exterior for me. So I went with Velocity.
I too wonder about the Velocity, when door is closed. Looked ok in pics. I figure, worst case I could wrap the door jab with black.
I too have been struggling with those some issues.
For me, I really prefer the ones that are flush mounted; so that is a higher priority for me.
You are probably struggling, because you are balancing cost with function. And hard to know what function you want, or need.
The flip ups are simple...
I tried my ‘20 Escape carpets mats in a Mav; at dealer. They were just a little bit too long, got hung up under the front seat. The shape of the rear and sides were pretty close to a perfect fit.
And yes, front mat shapes are same.
Because the rears needed to be shortened, I suspect that is why...
I would recommend wiring the home link to ignition (or accessory) 12v.
That way someone cannot break in and just open your garage door; if parked in driveway.
You will have you Mav running 99.9% of the time you need to open & close the garage door.
I honestly can’t decide between those either. No build date yet, so I have time.
I’m currently leaning towards getting the Ford ones, then 3D print something to fill the gap.
I do prefer the Ford logo over the RB. And of course the cheaper price.
