  1. First out of the chute...

    Listen to the Hyundai ad again... "It's not a Truck." You're right...The Maverick is targeted at traditionalists who though this is a small unibody design, still want their vehicle to look like just another Ford truck. The Santa Cruz is for people who want a more car-like design the just...
  2. First out of the chute...

    Guess I'm an "early adopter techno guy," (just an old 66-year old one! 😄) 'cuz I like it! Two concerns though... What will be the price? Will the rear seats accommodate adults? Other than that it has way more pizzazz than the Maverick (and I'm sorry to have to say that here). The Mav doesn't...
  3. First out of the chute...

    Unless you want a truck, this is gonna give the Maverick some competition. And Hyundai themselves is making sure to tell you right upfront... The Santa Cruz is "not a truck."
  4. What color is your Maverick?

    I will remember that should I be fortunate enough to be purchasing a Maverick one day. :) I would expect that when first available, Maverick prices won't be very negotiable and supply will be limited. The Ranger has been out for quite a while now and I still feel they are running higher than...
  5. What color is your Maverick?

    Unless you special order I have usually found you wind up with the color of whatever happens to be the best package and deal available on the dealer's lot the day you buy. Often that leaves you with only a couple of choices...especially if the dealer doesn't have a large inventory.
  6. What color is your Maverick?

    The 70's had many more "groovy" colors. 😆. How did we get to such a monochrome pallette? Boring!
  7. First out of the chute...

    Ford needs to get hot and at least announce the Maverick formally. I see that Hyundai plans on announcing the Santa Cruz on April 15th. I'm going to bet the Santa Cruz will be more expensive. I'd like to hold out for the Maverick, but this Hyundai may be tempting. I have to laugh when I see...
  8. What goes around comes around?

    Ford could do that with vehicles like the Maverick pickup and the Ecosport If they'd be price and value competitive. Unless they do they will continue to lose those first-time buyers to Toyota, Nissan, Hyundai, and Kia. (I don't include Honda as they tend to run higher).
  9. Ford Maverick Pricing Will Start Under $20,000 MSRP

    What I would have expected at the $20k base model price point is a 2-door with a manual transmission, rubber floors, maybe even crank windows. Steel wheels and one color - Oxford White. The strictly fleet vehicle. You can get an F-150 like this so why wouldn't the do that with the Maverick...
  10. What goes around comes around?

    Is it me or does the Bronco Sport seem a lot like the First Generation Escape and the Maverick a lot like the Sport Trac? Seems these earlier designs are seeing a resurgence in popularity.
  11. Base Maverick XL Pickup Spied with Steelies, FWD, Unique Grille! + First Ever Maverick Video

    This does look a lot like my Sport Trac which is a good thing. I've loved my ST for years and finally see what might be a great replacement. Might miss the driver-controllable 4WD though.
  12. Maverick Hybrid Confirmed

    No....I'd guess that the Santa Cruz will start at around $25k and that the $20k Maverick we're hearing about will be the totally stripped Oxford white fleet edition with steel wheels. But that's all just a wild guess.
  13. More Red Renders!

    Mine attaches at the sides and swivels into the bed when the tailgate is up, over and onto the tailgate if you like when it is down. I attached some Yakima fork clamps to it and was easily able to carry bikes by unclipping the front wheel and clipping into the fork clamps. If you want to leave...
  14. Maverick Hybrid Confirmed

    And the price just keeps creeping up. Soon I'm down the road looking at the Hyundai Santa Cruz. Or maybe just refurbishing my 03 Sport Trac.
  15. More Red Renders!

    Two words... Bed Extender. I have one on my 03 Sport Trac and it's great.
  16. What color is your Maverick?

    Wish Ford would offer the khaki tan color like I sometimes see on Toyota Tacomas. If not, make mine red.
  17. Maverick Hybrid Confirmed

    Just hoping options don't push the price too fat from that $20k we're hearing. The hybrid sounds very interesting.
  18. Ford Maverick Pricing Will Start Under $20,000 MSRP

    Even so... if we have a sub $20K price on a base model I'd like to think we could get something decent under $25K. If that's the case, Ford will still have one of the lowest-priced pickups available. I watched the Ranger for years as it was being developed in hopes it might be my next...
  19. Ford Maverick Pricing Will Start Under $20,000 MSRP

    Under $20K.... You can have any color... so long as it's white. Oxford White. :giggle:
  20. Ford Maverick Pricing Will Start Under $20,000 MSRP

    Agreed. It used to be you could buy a rather stripped model of a pickup if all you wanted it for was a simple delivery or farm truck. That's how they would keep this under $20K... Make it like the original Rangers. It's easy to drive the price up with add-ons, especially if they are factory...
