If the Maverick really doesn't fit your needs for versatility try the Ranger. I have a 2019 Ranger SuperCab and love it. It has all the power you need and a outstanding towing capability. And it has a regular shifter.
The screen in the Maverick is the same screen Ford uses in everything the same one is in my Ranger and my wife Edge. I would have thought Ford would have given the Maverick a bigger screen for the Lariat but I guess they decided to use one screen size to hold cost down.
