  1. Is there an online Chat to check order status?

    I have seen others post about getting info from Ford on Order Status using the Chat feature. I can get to a Ford page that mentions Chat, but see no clickable link to initiate such a Chat. Has this been removed? Has anyone had success reaching Ford and getting information this way lately...
  2. Dealer says CP360 will totally stop my order

    I ordered a very basic XL Hybrid on Oct. 25, 2021. The only additions were the hitch, the backseat power inverter, and Co-Pilot 360. (I backed out a tonneau cover and SIBL long ago figuring those can be done locally.) My salesman called yesterday and suggested dropping the CP360 as he feels...
  3. How to hunt unicorns?

    Perhaps some of you who have successfully hunted down the elusive, (and perhaps mythical), Ford Unicorn, (aka Maverick), by shopping around might enlighten us as to how that is done? Even rarer is to bag one of these beasts without having to pay thousands in markups. I can wait..(and wait, and...
  4. Who's Johnny Car Care?

    I see almost daily YouTube postings often about the Maverick by "Johny" from Johnny's Car Care. He does not seem to be with a Ford dealership and looks to be based in Canada. Is he legit? What gives him an inside track to production information and what are his credentials?
  5. Special Shirt for Maverick buyers!

    Show you're one of the 100K Maverick buyers waiting for their ordered truck with this special edition shirt! Just $19.95* *(not including a $500.00 "Market Adjustment Fee)
  6. 12-volt cigarette lighter outlet?

    It occurs to me I have not seen a traditional round "cigarette-lighter" style outlet in the Maverick. Am I missing it hiding somewhere? I have various devices which use this kind of power connection.
  7. The "Cactus Fighters"

    Did someone say the Cactus Gray color was close to Fighter Gray and that it makes a good canvas for graphic art? It was fun to play with in Photoshop anyway. Not sure I'll join the "Cactus Fighters Squadron" when (if?) my CG XL finally comes, but ya think this would be a head-turner going down...
  8. Need some positive stories!

    I may need to take a break from this site. I look at it way too much already an am just reading too many stories of dealer markups, extras added to vehicles that weren't requested, things that have failed on new trucks and other dirty dealings. I need some reassurance that good honest dealers...
  9. What a screwed-up system!

    How could you not read all the stories here of dealer markups, confused orders, multi-month delays, holes drilled in gas tanks, and all the other traumas involved and not shake your head in disgust. How did trying to buy a vehicle become such a $hit$h0w? Obviously this new Order Model of doing...
  10. Market adjustment fee added to Ordered Mavericks?

    For those of us who have ordered and are waiting for a build do we need to be concerned that the price we were quoted when the order was placed will have a "Market Adjustment Fee" added when the truck arrives? Have any of you had dealers try to pull this on an ordered vehicle? I see some local...
  11. Mavericks run late? ✈

    They've delayed the release of the new Top Gun sequel for three years but now have finally announced a premier date of May 27, 2022. Something about the Maverick name that means a delayed release maybe? Perhaps my Cactus Gray XL might be here in time for the movie release? Talk to me Goose...
  12. Santa buddy

    Santa buddy, put a Maverick under the tree, for me I've been an awful good boy Santa buddy, So hurry down the freeway tonight.
  13. Update / upgrade / modify the bed cubby?

    As Monty Hall might have said, "Let's see what's behind Door Number One." It seems the storage cubbies on the XL are not included though a cover panel is in that spot. So, does anyone know what I will see if I take off the four bolts on the cover? Just the inside of the space behind? Might...
  14. Best Aftermarket Parts

    Let's start a thread on best aftermarket parts and add-ons. You could pay the high prices for stuff at the dealer parts counter but why if there are other good options to be had elsewhere? Tell us about good deals you've found, the price, post pics if you can and even better, a link where the...
  15. Giving time for the competition to catch up

    Hyundai was first to the trucklet market with the Santa Cruz. Ford countered that with Base hybrid with much better mileage. But...while it could be 6 months or more for some of us to get our Maverick, Hyundai isn't sleeping. They may very well transplant one of their hybrid engines into a...
  16. Co-Pilot 360 standard on XLT?

    It kinda looks like Co-pilot 360 is included as standard on the XLT Hybrid but then I also see it as an offered option on the build page. Included or not?
  17. Tie Me Kangaroo Down Mate?

    I see one of the differences between the XL and the XLT are the 10 tie-down points in the XLT. Is this simply a matter of buying the hardware and then doing it yourself later? Does the XL have the bolt holes but not the hooks and loops so those can be added later?
  18. Order or Wait?

    My 2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac is running fine, has long been paid for, is on-demand 4WD and in many ways is like the Maverick on steroids. It has about 138,000 miles. The only variant of the Maverick I'd want is the hybrid. That excellent mpg is the biggest draw. I understand that the...
  19. Maverick smaller than Explorer Sport Trac

    I thought the Maverick would be almost the same size as my 2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac but was surprised to see it's a bit smaller. Anyone have a pic of the Maverick parked next to the original Ranger?
  20. What can be added to XL later?

    I saw an XL in person today and could be satisfied with that trim level for the most part. I actually prefer the less colorful interior. I do wonder however what might be added later that is not standard on the XL. For example, can the Keyless keypad be added to an XL later? A power tailgate...
