Price, price, price. I refuse to pay more than 25-26k OTD.
If the Maverick trim I want starts in the 25k range, I’ll buy a Colorado for a couple grand more. The trade off at that point for me doesn’t really make sense when it comes to the price.
Secondarily, I have a growing family so I do...
I live in central North Carolina. We might have a good snow once every 5 years or so.
Usually doesn’t get much colder than right at freezing. I don’t go off roading, ever.
FWD is all I need. Can absolutely see how others would need AWD though.
Death, Taxes, and ghost1986 sticking up for the looks of the Santa Cruz!
I’m not a Maverick fan boy at all. The price is the thing that intrigues me first and foremost (I’d buy a Ranger, Colorado, or a new Frontier over the Maverick if they were all similarly priced,) but it looks MILES better...
That’s exactly what I’ve told myself as well. I think the black mirrors and door handles will provide a nice contrast and make the color pop more.
I think this is a win/win in a lower trim because it will look better and be cheaper!
I was able to find an Area 51 BS near me so I went to go take a look to see the color myself.
It really is amazing how much different it looks depending on the lighting. On one side where the sun was shining it looked Carolina blue. On the side in the shade it’s almost a dark teal color...
I think as MarcusBrody above mentioned, it would cost Ford more most likely to build a completely different unibody frame for a single cab. With how few people want them, it doesn’t make sense for them to do so at this time.
I really hope Ford doesn’t make this mistake. I can buy a Colorado which is a traditional truck at this price point and it’s really close the Ranger price. Here’s what I’m hoping:
XL/S/Base Whatever you want to call it trim:
This one has Steelies, Door Handles and Mirrors that don’t match the...
Coincidentally I’m torn between Cactus Grey and Area 51 if they do offer both.
I test drove a Ranger in Cactus Grey a few months ago and really liked the color.
I may need to go see the Area 51 in person before making a final decision. Really prefer the BS pics I posted when it comes to the...
Does anyone else think this Area 51 color looks different compared to the Area 51 color on the BS?
The more I look at the Maverick Area 51 color compared to the BS Area 51, the less I like it. Hopefully it’s just the picture quality/lighting.
I don’t mind the body color not matching the doors, and with the Area 51 I’ve got my eye on, I think it even looks better by giving some contrast.
The only thing I would change is the wheels. That to me would be worth the upgrade.
