  1. AWD Nice but Not Necessary in Winter

    Ive driven all sorts of things in the winter and I agree. From my Nissan Pulsar NX to my Miata to my supercharged 97 Buick Regal GS to my Geo Tracker to my current Grand Marquis. I live in PA surrounded by hills and the only one that ever gave me trouble getting home was the 320+ horsepower...
  2. First out of the chute...

    Its going to be MILES better looking than the Maverick. The only thing that would keep me from the Santa Cruz is the fact it'll be fancier overall with no fleet trims. That's literally the only downside I see it having. I want nothing when it comes to dumb fancy gizmos so Ill probably wind up...
  3. Bad News ?

    Same honestly. This wouldnt be bad news in the slightest for me. Ive been following this truck since it was rumored to just be a Transit Connect with a bed and I was actually kinda sad when it evolved into what it is now. I just want super simple and reliable. Thats exactly what a Transit...
  4. Ford Towing package

    Its a $20k chassis mostly based off the Focus architecture. Overshoot your estimates all you want, itll just lead to dissappointment. I keep expectations in check and understand the market this is produced in and whats it comparable to. Its a car based Ute. I mean a Ridgeline is rated at...
  5. Ford Towing package

    My guess is gonna be 2000 pounds with the 1.5 and 3500 pounds with 2.0. I base this on absolutely no evidence other than speculation. Haha. It wont be a towing monster at all, id honestly be surprised to see numbers higher than those.
  6. Normally aspirated Duaratec 20?

    Honestly Id be pretty happy to have that non turbo 2.0 in the base model instead of the 1.5. I dont think we'll have that option though since its not an option in the Escape/Bronco Sport.
  7. First out of the chute...

    I actually wish the Maverick was styled a bit more than the flat edged box it is. Lol. The Santa Cruz looks awesome but yea like you said its likely going to be more expensive just because they wont do any sort of fleet model and their tech is usually better and more common on trims. They're...
  8. Base Maverick XL trim spotted again

    Looks great. Im completely fine with that. I wonder if my current cop car wheel caps on my Grand Marquis could fit over those lugs. The old Rangers shared the same caps as the police interceptor on some models so they shared the same sort of look as police steelies. Would be awesome looking...
  9. Spotted: Maverick vs Ranger size comparison

    I think they're in totally different classes honestly. If you can option a Maverick to $35k-ish (which would be absolutely absurd for this thing), it wouldnt come close to holding a candle to a base Ridgeline. The Ridgeline will always be the far more beefy, civilized, and have higher...
  10. Spotted: Maverick vs Ranger size comparison

    If they can pull Ridgeline buyers that would be superb. The Ridgeline is in a whole nother class above where this is aiming. It doesnt remind me of the Ridgeline at all though. Wont be anywhere near as capable or beefy at the price point its aiming for.
  11. When will Ford announce the existence/debut of the Maverick?

    Good god, I love the looks of that Santa Cruz. It does have the exact same flaw as the Maverick though, that belt line is absurdly high looking. I loathe that trend on new cars. Feel like Im in a coffin and i cant comfortably get my arm out the window. My buddy went from a '97 Firebird to a...
  12. Ford Maverick Pricing Will Start Under $20,000 MSRP

    I heard that idea floated somewhere else too back when this was a rumored Transit Connect based truck and Id be all for it. I think that non turbo 2.0 is fine overall. Nothing fancy at all but it does work.Unfortunately I think were only getting a 1.5/2.0 choice. I dont think they would try...
  13. Spotted: Maverick vs Ranger size comparison

    I think the only competetion this thing will really have right off the bat is the Santa Cruz. With the Ridgeline starting at like $38k now they're not only not on the same playing field, they arent even in the same sport. The Ridgeline is fairly capable when it comes to actual truck stuff...
  14. Spotted: Maverick vs Ranger size comparison

    Im just hoping they can do some sort of 60/40 split seat in the back so I can rip out the 60 part and build a nice storage box for all the tools and stuff I keep in the trunk now. Having the 40 seat would be useful for the few times I carry more than myself and another person (only has happened...
  15. Base Maverick XL Pickup Spied with Steelies, FWD, Unique Grille! + First Ever Maverick Video

    Mmmmmmm. Steelies. That makes me super happy. So now they just need to confirm I cant get the 2.0 without spending an absurd amount (or by forcing me into higher tech packages I refuse to get) and Ill be all but set in getting a base. Looks perfect.
  16. What type of aftermarket goodies are you hoping for?

    If they made something like an ST street version of this truck Id be overjoyed. A manual, front wheel drive, modified 2.0 ecoboost truck would be a stupid fun toy.
  17. What type of aftermarket goodies are you hoping for?

    Since were getting closer and closer to reveal/launch Im just curious (and looking for more ideas) about what they could possibly offer in the realm of aftermarket parts to make the Maverick more useful or cool or better. Hopefully this thing takes off like the big Bronco where all the...
  18. Ford Maverick Full Uncovered Look @ Side & Rear 3/4 in Area 51 color!

    Sadly the Santa Cruz is going to 100% too fancy and expensive. They wont do any cheap fleet models and they gizmos are basically guaranteed to be fancier and cooler than what Ford offers. They always are with Hyundai honestly, past few years they've blown by Ford for that kinda stuff. But...
  19. Ford Maverick Full Uncovered Look @ Side & Rear 3/4 in Area 51 color!

    Also something no one else has said, I hope these drivers in the spy shots are like 4'10" because if they arent then that belt-line is LUDICROUSLY high. Thats a newer trend I just cant stand. More uncomfortable to hang your arm out of, harder to see out, makes the vehicle feel more cramped and...
  20. Ford Maverick Full Uncovered Look @ Side & Rear 3/4 in Area 51 color!

    I mean, looks wise the Santa Cruz is leagues better looking. The Maverick looks really boring to be frank. Theres something super bland about the Maverick in that Area 51 sideshot we got and the leaked front end just looks bulky and blah when compared to the gorgeous Bronco Sport. I wish they...
