  2. Pop up campers great for Maverick 4k tow

    There has been lot of banter on what camper can be towed with Maverick. Here is a video showing some great pop up campers that would be perfect with the Maverick 4k tow package. I started with a pop up and loved them. They are great for the outdoor oriented RVers who just need a base camp...

  5. Raised white letters on tires coming back?

    My buddy and I were talking about the Maverick last night and since the true compact truck is coming back we started wondering if the raised white letter tire will come back with Maverick owners. I remember seeing the old Chevy Luv/S10 and Original Ranger etc running raised white letters all...

  8. Next Generation Ford Ranger Teased in Torture Test Video

    Was listening to an Overland podcast and they commented the new Ranger was being built on a world platform so the design will be the same throughout world and share parts when possible. Since Ford will be expanding the economies of scale maybe a lesser price point may appear.
  9. Frontier’s are starting to show up

    Drove one last night since I am choosing between Frontier and Maverick. They have really improved the ride and look. Base crew cab 4x4 for $32,000 is a strong contender. Add in standard options that Ford nickel and dimes you for is nice My dealership will haggle because they are after...

  11. A message to all Ford employees who are members in this forum

    Tried and true sales rules: 1. Overpromising and underdelivering is the kiss of death. 2. You only have one chance to launch a new product correctly. Yes there is a shortage of stuff in the world right now, the supply chains are fluid, its the new world etc etc etc. These problems were known...

  13. Hybrid Maverick orders will not be scheduled until further notice - per dealer bulletin

    Ford has some explaining to do. They ramp up the PR/Marketing blitz about a truck under $20,000 (Not true) and that it comes standard with a hybrid motor (Not making it til further notice) What does that mean? They may need to go into prevention mode sometime soon. They are really pushing...
  14. How long before you give up?

    None of the above. Not an early adopter. Will wait to see what kinks show in Maverick once it hits the general public/mass production and see what other manufacturers enter the market. Are you listening Toyota. Rav4 compact truck anyone? Or a model based on first gen tacoma?
