    Comfort Level Of The Seats

    Somebody once described that feeling to me as "kissing your sister."

    Fog Lights?

    I'm pretty sure there is at least a 12v jump post in the engine compartment.

    Awesome. Hang on to that one, it's already a classic.

    Why do you want a Maverick?

    I drove a Fiesta hatchback stick for years and got many similar reactions. :D

    Confusion About The Infotainment System - Base vs Sync 3?

    There must be GPS because I'm almost certain that Ford collects (or wants to collect) all of that sweet customer usage and location data. This is a new revenue stream for them.

    Confusion About The Infotainment System - Base vs Sync 3?

    From the order guide it looks like the only way to get Sync3 is with Lariat Lux package, is that right? If I didn't already want other features in the lux pkg, Sync3 would not be a compelling feature. If it was standalone I might pay a couple/few hundred bucks for it, at best. I haven't used...

    Confusion About The Infotainment System - Base vs Sync 3?

    Good points, eRock. Consumers expect fairly short evolutionary cycles for mobile devices, so I've also wondered why automakers want to recreate the phone on the dashboard. We hold on to our vehicles longer than phones/tablets, and infotainment hardware is never upgraded so it becomes sluggish...

    Walkaround & first look videos of the 2022 Maverick

    In terms of fuel economy, yes. But it'll be tough to match the comfort and style of that Panther ...

    2.5l Hybrid

    I know there were some large taxi fleets using basically the same hybrid platform on Escapes. I don't recall the source but remember reading that many of the hybrid taxis had very high mileage, like 200-300K miles+.

    Only Three Colors Available For FE Lariat 2.5?

    I wish that Cactus Gray had been available for FE. Or another nonmetallic color.

    Maverick Trim Comparison (XL, XLT, Lariat)

    That is a bummer. Every beater truck I've ever rented has had cruise. Seems like it should be a PCM software feature plus steering wheel switches, not a big cost. Maybe there is a network complexity or part incompatibility (gateway, message db, etc) that makes basic cruise cost prohibitive on a XL

    Maverick Technical Specifications Sheet - What are your reactions?

    Another thing I noticed is that the First Ed comes with 17" wheels rather than 18s. I know the FE wheels are unique to that package, but surprised by the smaller wheels. Is this a cosmetic thing? Also, no Kodiak Brown as a color choice. I never liked the browns/tans in the past when they were...

    Maverick Technical Specifications Sheet - What are your reactions?

    I wondered what others thought of the official specs (below) for the Maverick. Overall I am pretty happy with what was revealed and it looks like many of the rumors and guesses were correct. I'm ready to order. I was surprised by the standard hybrid engine. Also pleasantly surprised by the 4K...

    Has Ford's Approach To Rolling Out The Maverick Dimmed Your Interest?

    In my case, I don't have a problem with Ford's approach. Their timing, along with supply chain constraints (semiconductors, etc) are what they are. For me the issue is my need is immediate and I'm losing patience. We moved last fall and have a bunch of landscaping/construction projects going or...
