    Current Daily Drivers

    2002 Explorer XLS 4x4, my winter beater turned daily driver until I take the 2003 Mercury Marauder into Ford to figure out why it wont pass emissions. I also have a big project 1972 VW Super Beetle that seems like it'll never see the road again, yet I'm too stubborn to give up and sell it. A...

    Maverick vs Hyundai Santa Cruz

    I agree, it is both bogus and sad the Maverick isnt made here, but I look at the bigger picture with all the profits going to an American company at least. When I can afford to step up to bigger, American made Ford products, i certainly will!

    Why do you want a Maverick?

    Why do i want one? TBH, ive always had used cars, im 35 now, have what i think is my career set and am getting more financially comfortable. I'm getting married next year, so while i dont think I'll be first in line for a first year Mav, it looks like it would be a great replacement to my almost...

    Maverick vs Hyundai Santa Cruz

    For 30k+, it would make more sense to just get a Ranger, for about 31k the Ranger can be had with AWD and four full doors.

    Maverick vs Hyundai Santa Cruz

    The front is better looking than the side profile IMO, and it seems to be pretty capable, but its basically starting at an MSRP of 150% the Maverick. Option the Maverick ten thousand more dollars and im betting you'll have a better looking, more capable truck, made by an American company.

    Features : Need/Want/Don't

    The price difference between the base Escape and the hybrid is about $2800, seems justifiable, but the diff between the base and the plug in is $7,765. Considering i can buy a lot of gas with $7765, that plugging it in still costs fuel money, and that insurance will also be substantially higher...

    What color is your Maverick?

    If you make a point of wanting only a specific color, a good dealership will find one within reasonable driving distance, and trade one of theirs for the one you want from another dealer, then sell you that one.

    Features : Need/Want/Don't

    Need: 4x4 or AWD, big enough/wide enough 4 door for my 6'3" 220 pound self and family, and close to that 20k msrp (knowing AWD will be extra) Want: Lots of color choices instead of greyscale, autostart, available "winter package" with heated seats/WeatherTech floor mats/block heater(?), CD...

    What color is your Maverick?

    Wow, actually, I really like that red on white. If colors outside the greyscale are not allowed in the base trim, I would seriously consider getting white just to have it wrapped that way.

    What color is your Maverick?

    White looks filthy just from water spots after a light rain! White is the easiest to find the dirt and remove it, but you'll see every fleck or mud, until you clean it. The only color worse than white, for keeping dirt from showing etc, might be black. Keeping gloss black looking sharp is a part...

    Cyber Orange Maverick prototype spotted

    ...and the orange has matching orange rearview mirrors, denoting its on a higher trim level, dammit.

    What color is your Maverick?

    I would pay the extra 395-595 to get a color, Cyber Orange or Alto Blue maybe, but if base models get stuck with black,white,silver,grey I cant see paying for a higher trim level AND still paying for a "special" paint. At that point I'd probably get white and pay someone to wrap it the color i want.

    Normally aspirated Duaratec 20?

    That is a good point, the Escape is the cheaper of the two, and it's base MSRP is still about 5k more than target for the Maverick. Those savings gotta come from somewhere...

    I saw $1900 and was like, SOLD, then I saw its an auction site and got sad lol.

    Normally aspirated Duaratec 20?

    I completely agree, however as time goes by, speculation keeps leaning more and more to the two turbo options only. The NA 2.0 would be cheaper for a base MSRP vehicle sub 20k, but i think they're still gonna go turbo only to get their fleet MPGs up, due to the constantly stricter government...

    First out of the chute...

    I gotta say, that was very impressive, I'm still on the fence about preferring a turbo engine, but if that's all that's available I do feel a bit more confident in them now. Great video, thanks for sharing!

    First out of the chute...

    Agreed, my newest car is currently a 2003, im not sure I trust the longevity of a turbo. Everyone seems worried about replacing a timing belt at 150k miles but no one's batting an eye at the cost of a turbo around 100k.

    Spotted: Maverick vs Ranger size comparison

    To my untrained eyes, the Ranger looks 6-8 inches taller, other than that i dont see much of a difference, 20k msrp seems like a great deal on the Maverick if it's that similarly proportioned.

    Ordering a Maverick...

    I was a Ford dealer for a year, so at least at my location, I can tell you how people got new cars at cost. First you have to know exactly what you want, every option, etc. Write an email to the closest 5 Fords or so something like this. Dear X Ford dealer, Im interested in a new 2022 Maverick...
