Thank you for the kind words ๐Ÿ™‚ I live in Tennessee where the Summers are very hot and very very humid it makes it so nice to go ahead and crack the windows on those hot summer days and let the heat out I have noticed a big difference after I installed them in August 22. I installed them one day and left the next day for a 4,000 MI round trip to Las Vegas and back via interstate 40 was a little worried about them possibly blowing off with the high heat and 75 to 80 mph but no problem at all they are bulletproof. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿœ

I ordered a '23 Hybrid on September 15th. With all of the rumors about Ford cancelling orders, when a dealer contacted me October 17th about an EcoBoost I jumped on it. Two weeks later I got an email from Ford stating I was scheduled for Dec 5th. I don't need two Mavericks. :)
Was the trade offer not good enough? I'd think it's pretty easy to offload a Mav right now.

It was dismal. The Chevy dealer across the street offered me $5k more but still a little low for me.

Took this picture a couple of weeks ago during a blizzard. Two hybrids (real unicorns!) in my driveway. Mine and my wife's. :)

My white '22 EcoBoost and my Cactus Gray '23 Hybrid. Bought the '22 on Oct 17, took delivery of the '23 on 12/31. Have had both for 2 weeks now, the white one needs a new home.

Why didn't you trade in the white one?

Just saw the other guy ask you this... If you only got dealership offers, they would be dismal. Have to go to CarMax/Carvana.... Something like that. Then take that offer to the dealership and they should match it

Those unicorns look perfect. Could make a hallmark card out of it.
May I ask how well the hybrid does in rough snowy weather? I ordered the ecoboost AWD fx4 pkg. I live in Omaha Nebraska where weather can be similar to your pic. However, I go back and forth because I drive quite a bit and the hybrid is so efficient.
Thoughts? Thanks ahead of time.

Sorry for the delay, just saw this. We are in western PA so we get snow! So far I have been very happy with the performance in snow and ice here. With them being front wheel drive they drive just like a FWD car in the snow but since they are newer technology, they are better in the snow than my other FWD cars, both Hyundai Accents with manual transmissions. I've lived almost all of my life in heavy snow areas (Rochester NY, Denver CO, Cheyenne WY and of course here now) so I am very used to snow driving which helps. I have only owned one four wheel drive in over 40 years of driving and only had that for a year or so. Front wheel or two wheel drive in snow is pretty much all I know so these two trucks have been a happy surprise in the snow. The traction control works great as does the anti-lock brakes. I'm using the stock tires too, not snow tires.

People seem to think that if you have snow, you MUST have AWD or 4WD. That simply isn't true and honestly most of the vehicles I see stuck or on their roof in a ditch during the winter tend to be 4WD. Learn how to drive in snow and a FWD is all you need and honestly, IMO keeps you safer because you know that you have to be cautious. 4WD and AWD seems to make drivers feel invincible in snow causing them to throw caution to the wind. The ability to stop is MUCH more important in snow than the ability to get up to speed. 4WD and AWD doesn't help your ability to stop one bit.
