  1. 2.0 Ecoboost expected MPG?

    There's an interesting quote from this Ford Authority article: “We had to optimize every element that speaks to fuel economy: aerodynamics, rolling resistance of the tires, frictional loss, inefficiencies you can have in drivetrains with rotating components,” Mazur said. Remember, we are...
  2. The million dollar question: Cactus Gray or Carbonized Gray?

    If by early next year they offer the black interior on the XLT, I'd go Cactus Grey all day, everyday. Now if they offered the Escape's Desert Gold or Bronze Fire, I'd be ecstatic. Throw in a slightly less dark version of Kodiak Brown and I'll start hyperventilating.
  3. 2.0 Ecoboost expected MPG?

    Do you really think the non-max tow version will be that low? Isn't the Maverick's AWD mechanics different from the Bronco Sport's? I was thinking it would be like 21/28/25; between the Sport and the Escape in fuel economy. I can see the max towing being exactly like the Sport though.
  4. The XL elephant in the room... no cruise control on the XL..

    Since cruise control has transitioned from a mechanical component to a computer component, could the chip issues been a way for Ford to be extra stingy with the Maverick? I mean, cutting CC to save chip issues and get the vehicle to market far outweighs upsetting/losing possible reservation...
  5. Confusion About The Infotainment System - Base vs Sync 3?

    So it's still the same Waze as I remember, then? Ehh... I'll just stick with Google Maps. I'm used to working with it to get what I want.
  6. Confusion About The Infotainment System - Base vs Sync 3?

    I guess I'm the only one who has had bad experiences with Waze. I tested it out with Waze on my work phone and Google Maps on my personnel. There were 3 distinct times when I chose Waze's directions over Google Maps' despite Maps screaming that I was going the wrong way. All 3 times I ended...
  7. Confusion About The Infotainment System - Base vs Sync 3?

    This is exactly why I made this thread. It seems like Ford sacrificed on the interior and creature comforts to keep this trucks starting price down. The direction Ford seems to be going is utilizing Android and Apple's car app features to handle a lot of the phone, navigation, and infotainment...
  8. Confusion About The Infotainment System - Base vs Sync 3?

    Thanks for the reply. I was just curious because my 2020 Escape has Sync 3, but (to my knowledge) the 2021 Ranger is still available with plain radio and standard Sync in the 4.2" screen variant. As long as the 8" can display Google Maps via Android Auto, I'm fine with it
  9. Confusion About The Infotainment System - Base vs Sync 3?

    Help me understand this, and correct me if I'm wrong. The Maverick comes standard with the 8" infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. However, Sync 3 is available on the Lariat trim. So outside of Sirius-XM support, what's the difference between the two systems...
  10. 2.5l Hybrid

    Yeah, I hope there will be an AWD Hybrid next year. I think if I had to choose, I'd go with the hybrid ONLY because most of my driving would be on pavement. The most off-roading I've done has been a dirt road shortcut I drive on my way home when the highway is packed and driving on the job...
  11. Leaked image set of 2022 Ford Maverick

    The Twitter thread is saying 2.5L hybrid standard. If that's true, that's big news. However, I am skeptical of that. I only say so because those 2.5L hybrid specs sound the same as the 1.5L's typical specs. If the 2.5L hybrid is the new 1.5L and is cheap enough to market below $20k, that...
  12. Reservation Urgency?

    My family has had 9 Fords total from 2001 to now. We've only had 2 lemons: the 2001 Explorer (the cruise control recall) and my old 2014 Focus SE (I don't even have to explain that one lol). Granted, my Focus survived almost 7 years of 141,000 with most mileage being done in those last 3...
  13. Guess the Maverick Reveal Date

    What are the other two numbers?
  14. Reservation Urgency?

    I've been saying this for the past couple of years. When Ford redesigned the Escape, it was obvious what they were doing. There's a reason why I call the Escape a bloated Focus. The Escape is the new Focus The Edge is the new Fusion The Bronco Sport is the new Escape The Maverick is...
  15. 2022 Maverick Lariat FX4 Leaked Sneak Peek (Exterior & Interior)!

    Also to add, this is MSRP. If there is one thing we can expect from Ford, it that there will be some sort of incentives a year after launch. The question is how much will the incentives take off. If I'm honest, even if the Maverick fit me perfectly and rode exceptionally, I probably wouldn't...
  16. 2022 Maverick Lariat FX4 Leaked Sneak Peek (Exterior & Interior)!

    Man... If fuel economy is anywhere near my Escape, I might jump ship. And if an AWD hybrid isn't that expensive, boy will it be hard to not do a trade in.
  17. Article: I Regret To Inform You That The Ford Maverick Might Be Great. Targeting 110,000 annual sales volume

    I work in heavy civil. In my area, I see a lot of county, VDOT, and consulting inspectors with crew cab mid to full-sized trucks with empty beds. They would benefit more from a Maverick than what they're driving. What's funny is for my company, some of the biggest, most capable trucks are...
  18. 2022 Maverick Lariat FX4 Leaked Sneak Peek (Exterior & Interior)!

    Then give us another cryptic message to distract us. Bed length? Tow rating? Gas mileage?
  19. Maverick Pricing Estimate based on other Fords

    See... I came from a '14 Focus, so nothing compares to the shakes I had in it. I will say that I can definitely notice the cylinder deactivation on lower speed much more than at higher speeds. If I'm at a low speed when cylinder deactivation is engaged, come to a slow down/stop, and then...
  20. Maverick Pricing Estimate based on other Fords

    I have the 1.5L in my Escape. It does well in Northern VA traffic on the beltway and I-95. I tried it on Sport mode once and yeah... I'm not responsible enough for that. lol Sport mode is pretty zippy for a CUV. What's funny is when my Focus died, I had to use a rental car for a week so I...
