  1. Patiently waiting

    Sounds like you're in a situation in which you gotta do what you gotta do. Let us know if the eco-boost AWD Mav meets your needs.
  2. Auto Stop Start inconsistent

    To each his own. My experience with AS in 3 vehicles, including two Ford trucks, indicates that the MPG savings is between 1 and 2 MPG better when AS is engaged in mixed driving. I've got many traffic lights in my normal daily and weekly travel routing that keep me sitting at a red light...
  3. Anyone else scared to sell their current vehicle this soon?

    Yup. Like you, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to sell my pick-up when the selling was good. I ordered the Mav in June and sold the pick-up in July, getting pretty much what I paid for it two years earlier. Delivery of my Mav is scheduled for the first week in Feb (fingers-crossed!). Will say...
  4. Anyone else scared to sell their current vehicle this soon?

    After ordering my Mav in June, I sold my 2019 Ranger in July for pretty much what I paid for it two years earlier. I thought that inflated used car prices would very soon go bye-bye. But they didn't; they're still here. With supply-chain issues ongoing and with new COVID variants still...
  5. Auto Stop Start inconsistent

    The auto stop (AS) on my 2016 F-150 and my 2019 Ranger also seemed to activate intermittently. Dealer was never able to get the F-150's AS feature to work right. On the Ranger, after 2 months of the AS simply not working at all, the dealer put in a new battery, and the AS worked fine. Although...
  6. Raleigh/Triangle NC Dealership Maverick Tracker

    Got my email from Ford that My Lariat Hybrid (Hot Pepper Red) was built last week (Jan 4-9) and is undergoing QC checks. The email projected delivery to my dealer the first week of Feb.
  7. Honest opinion from Hybrid Mav owners

    I have a 2018 Ioniq, and can honestly say that I have NEVER taken it out of its Eco mode. I find it just quick enough to meet all my needs and all the driving conditions. Besides, I like the 56-60mpgs in mixed driving and the 68-70mpgs in highway driving too much to do anything different than...
  8. Patiently waiting

    Update: This just in from my dealer, re: my June 30 order for a Lariat Hybrid: "It was shown to be built 1/4. It has been released to body company which does final quality control and then it will be taken to the railyard where it will get loaded onto a train to come here. It should be about 3...
  9. Patiently waiting

    You got me beat. So tell me. What new hobbies have you taken up to while away the wait time? Me? I'm lucky. I've gotten to drive these two fun cars more often.
  10. Honest opinion from Hybrid Mav owners

    Still waiting on delivery here, but I just know that having to reset to eco mode each time I start the truck is gonna get old real fast. I bought the Maverick primarily because I wanted to max the MPG. It's disappointing that Ford didn't figure out what a PITA resetting modes at each start up...
  11. Patiently waiting

    You think YOU are "patiently waiting" after ordering on Oct 13th? Really? I ordered on June 30th. Still no delivery. Now, THAT's an example of "patiently waiting," my friend.
  12. January 3rd build week?

    ADDING: Well, my given Build Day (today) is essentially over. Nothing from Ford or the dealer. Update: This just in from my dealer: "It was shown to be built 1/4. It has been released to body company which does final quality control and then it will be taken to the railyard where it will get...
  13. How to get more MPG from hybrid Maverick?

    I can only repeat what others have said here. Based on my experience with 2 hybrids (a Honda Insight and Hyundai Ioniq), MPG is maximized by keeping to speed limits and treating the throttle like there's a robin's egg between your shoe and the gas pedal. Acceleration is never your wallet's...
  14. January 3rd build week?

    Dealer ADDING: Dealers emailed me this morning. My build date is tomorrow, Jan 4, according to their Vehicle Build Full History screen. We'll see what happens....
  15. January 3rd build week?

    Yes, Jan 3 is my build week. Was originally Dec 20. I am 888/1555 on my sticker (if that means anything). Lariat hybrid, Hot Pepper Red. I am holding my breath but not holding my breath.
  16. First Year Model

    The Ioniq is the wife's car. Keeping it. I sold my 2019 Ranger to generate funds for the Maverick. Plus, I have will have 3 other cars.
  17. ⏰ No Maverick scheduling next 3 weeks (12/20, 12/27, 1/3)

    My build date (for my Hybrid Lariat) was the week of Dec 20. Just received an email from Ford telling me the date has been moved to the week of Jan 3. Not sure how this fits (or doesn't fit) with that production week scheduling chart.
  18. Future Powerboost hybrid option?

    My 2019 Ranger got around 22 in mixed driving. The Maverick I ordered will reportedly get 37mpg. That's a big mpg difference and a big savings.
  19. Future Powerboost hybrid option?

    So, if you ordered a Mav hybrid, and mpg doesn't interest you, then the question: Why'd you order one?
  20. ?

    Yes, like so many other products, there are global tire manufacturing and supply chain issues. Buddy of mine needs new tires for his 2002 Vette, and the pickings are really slim. No Goodyear Eagles in the performance tire size he needs
