  1. Order bumped to Priority 2- what's average time to production?

    Ordered my Maverick Dec 15, 2021 and dealer had me at Priority 19 (all their retail orders get this). I have a bunch of constrained options on it and was/am in no hurry to receive my truck. I drop into my dealer every 2-3 weeks to see if any changes or updates- or to ask about issues reported...
  2. Destination & Delivery fees: Maverick vs. Ranger

    was recently playing with Ranger build & price tool and found the dreaded Destination & Delivery fee is $1295.00 vs. Maverick at $1495.00. Is this because Ranger is made and shipped from inside USA instead of shipping from Hermosillo, Mexico?
  3. ROVP and Order Confirmation question

    I ordered my Maverick at local dealer back on December 15th, and received Confirmation email from Ford in 30 minutes. Does this mean my order cleared ROVP (Retail Order Verification process) or could that still be outstanding action item needed? Reason I'm asking is the notice from Ford about...

  5. Snow chains required or not with AWD?

    I ordered my XL with Eco 2.0 and AWD for multiple other reasons, but recently I have been seeing references to not needing snow chains in AWD vehicles. I live in CO and this time of year you can get into snow chains required areas when traveling. I'm wondering if the no chains with AWD is legit...

  7. Will Ford tighten up ordering process for 2022 onward?

    Just speculating a little here. I think most of us assume Ford representatives of some capacity monitor and act as Admin on this board. There's many discussions of the order process they rolled out for Maverick and many complaints. I'm not looking to start another complaint thread here, but...
  8. Maverick Trainer in SW Colorado this morning- it's actually Black in person

    I was alerted to an unexpected trainer visit at my local dealer this morning. I went over and met the trainer guy and asked a bunch of questions and was allowed to go inside, under the hood, checked underneath front and rear, etc. It was a Black Lariat 2.0 AWD FX-4 and other added options (but...
  9. Test drove Ecoboost 2.0, 8 spd, AWD Edge today

    Stopped by my friendly local small town Ford dealer today to see if the Maverick stock unit they ordered came in yet. It's still scheduled for production or being built. It's XLT w/lux, FX4, full size spare a couple other options. It wasn't there and I've been having a couple lingering doubts...
  10. Cannabilizing Ranger sales, or not?

    Much has been written and discussed about why Ford didn't offer a smaller cab with 6' bed option. I was firmly in that camp. There's obviously some cost and tooling expense issues involved. The more I get into this trucklette and what Ford obviously is targeting with multiple demographics to...
  11. Ford unveiling Crate EV motors at SEMA for conversions

    Now things are getting interesting! Article suggests design of this is intended to retrofit ICE powered RWD vehicles due to rear facing output driveshaft. Time to start hording all those high mileage mini pickups from the 70's-90's and retrofit for big $ business :cool...
  12. Window Stickers show 22/29 MPG for Maverick 2.0L EcoBoost AWD 4K Tow

    These are actual builds from a scheduling data base. I redacted complete VINs for obvious reasons. MPGs (22 city / 29 highway) don't appear to be final EPA certified, but estimated based on what Ford is aiming for- same as published target for Hybrid. Enjoy! **end of OP comments** Note: good...

    so the 8" touch screen comes standard, but what exactly are the functions normally displayed, and what can be controlled and/or changed using it?

  16. Convert older compact PU of your choice to EV?

    curious if anyone has looked into converting something like an old Ranger to BEV? There's been more and more companies offering conversions in recent years and it's not just for old VW Bugs, Corrollas and such anymore. Lot's of people here don't need huge driving range or all the tech stuff...
  17. Maverick vs. Ranchero

    Since Ford chose to revive the Ranger & Bronco nameplates on modernized platforms, I'm puzzled why Ford decided NOT to follow the same pattern with the uni- body entry level compact truck slotted under the lightest duty body on frame pickup? Having previously owned a 1964 Falcon Ranchero in my...
