    How to replace the orange parts / pieces in the XLT?

    So the Maverick parts are now available! https://parts.ford.com/en.html Anyone have any clue what the trim parts to replace the orange XLT parts would be named? I know the XLT interior is called "Navy Pier" so I'm guessing it's just going to be "Black" for the XL interior, but I can't seem to...

    Agreed! On another note, I was surprised how much interior space there was in the Bronco Sport. I was a little worried about the Maverick being too small, but the Bronco Sport felt more than big enough (granted, I'm 5'10", but still). The Maverick has almost identical interior dimensions.

    ALTO BLUE Maverick Club

    Success! Got to briefly check out an Alto Blue Bronco Sport this morning. First off, it’s a gorgeous color that really has a lot of depth to it. I will say that it is very dark, but not dark enough to appear black. Certainly not a dealbreaker for me, so I’m very happy with this color for the...

    ALTO BLUE Maverick Club

    I got to the dealer and it was black, not Alto Blue. I would have been upset but it was only 10 minutes away. Going to check out a Alto Blue Bronco Sport in the morning which I've confirmed is actually blue so hopefully that will go smoother, lol.

    Well, the Ford Performance Tune for the Ranger has a 3 year 36,000 warranty as long as it’s installed by a Ford installer. They actually specify in their info sheet that it also doesn’t void the original warranty. https://performanceparts.ford.com/download/PDFS/fpp-warranty.pdf The Ranger is...

    ALTO BLUE Maverick Club

    I'm finally getting a chance to see an Alto Blue Ford Fusion in person later today...should make my decision final if I like it.

    📬 9/9 Scheduling email received group!

    For one thing, I came to the conclusion that for the amount of city driving I do, it wouldn't be that much more expensive to have the 2.0. Plus coming from driving a Miata, I want to have some amount of fun when I'm driving. There's a good chance that Ford releases a tune like they did for the...

    FWD vs AWD for acceleration?

    Appreciate the reply! This is ultimately the conclusion I came to. I'm very curious to see the actual FWD vs AWD acceleration from a standstill. The FWD Mazda3 is actually faster than the AWD Mazda3 despite the worse traction, so curious if that will be similar for the Maverick or not. At the...

    OFFER NOW CLOSED - 400 ORDERS!!! - THANK YOU!!! - 4% under invoice with @dealersider

    Hoping mine gets scheduled next week - ordered 7/26 (XLT, Alto Blue, FWD, no commodity restraints). I switched from a hybrid to an Ecoboost on Monday, so makes sense that it wouldn’t have been part of the cleanup scheduling. But really hoping it will be scheduled next week so I can get it before...

    I changed to a 2.0L Monday (before the hybrid announcement actually) but no scheduling yet. Ordered 7/26 from Chapman

    I finally found a Ranger in HPR over the weekend. Definitely more orange than expected. Not a bad color but not quite my cup of tea.

    Hybrid Acceleration

    With the caveat that I'm way too bored and this is completely non-scientific, I found 0-60 runs for the Escape 2.0L AWD and the Escape Hybrid on YouTube that closely matched the tested 0-60 times from Motortrend (6.9 sec for the 2.0L, 8.7 sec for the hybrid). I synced those up in my editing...

    Hybrid Order Support Group

    July 26th order with no commodity constraints other than the Hybrid - nothing yet as expected. I am fine waiting a while; I really just hope that I can take delivery by early January as that's when I'll be driving for classes. Right now I'm just working from home so my wife and I are doing fine...

    Ford Maverick or F-150 Lighting Pro EV?

    I'm definitely buying instead of leasing - ran the numbers and couldn't find a situation where leasing was a better deal for the Maverick.

    ALTO BLUE Maverick Club

    I've finally settled on Alto Blue - went back and forth between Cactus Grey and Area 51 for a while, but overall the Alto Blue feels the classiest to me while still incorporating some flair. I also think it matches the interior on the XLT the best. Now I've got to decide if I want to keep the...

    Ford Maverick or F-150 Lighting Pro EV?

    I have a Lightning reservation, but I’m not expecting to convert it to an order unless the tax credits are expanded. I’ve calculated that the Pro would be at least 43.5K OTD and I can only take advantage of 6.5K of the current tax credit, so that’s still 37K vs my 25.5K Maverick build. Otherwise...

    Crap, I didn't know the manual rear window was late availability. Did your dealer tell you that or did you see it somewhere else?

    FWD vs AWD for acceleration?

    That's a good point. If I'm being honest, the chance of me towing anything for a few years is very low. At this point I think I'm down to the hybrid and the 2.0L FWD. If I add on AWD and the towing package, I'm going to have to downgrade to the XL to compensate, and I absolutely will need cruise...
