They have 4 Mavericks at the TX fair total. There is one Velocity blue inside behind barriers (you can’t sit in it or get close to it).
They also have 3 outside that you can sit in and check out. Two hybrids and a ecoboost They aren’t powered on at all. The colors of the ones outside are velocity blue, area 51 , and silver. They have a bronco sport inside in the Alto blue color if you want to see that color in person.

Some things I noticed..
1. They don’t keep the ones outside very clean. The insides are filthy also.
2. The inside seems very roomy to me. The interior feels just as spacious and more modern that the ranger. Just sits lower than the ranger.
3. The lariat “active-X” seats are most certainly brown and navy blue. Very unusual, but it’s different, and I like it. Although the seat material is not as nice as I had hoped. I don’t think it will ever be confused with real leather. They aren’t terrible or anything, just not as great as I had hoped. I’m spoiled to keyless start, so I’m stuck with the lariat trim.
4. The cloth seats in the XLT are really nice. I think I actually preferred them to the active-x seats. Like I said, if I didn’t want some of the other features in the laroat, I might switch to XLT.
5. All the wheels they have looked really nice.
6. Velocity blue is very bright in person and in the sun. Alto blue is really dark, but nice. It actually has some green in the color in person.
7. The reps outside made sure and tell everyone that those were “pre-production” units. They said they had to work hard to get them there for everybody to see. Not really sure that anything much will have changed since the pre-production units.

I will upload a few pictures later…

Video from the fair. It shows the Mavericks on display.

The guy that posted it mentioned that is odd that Ford had no representative present to answer media questions despite all the new models that Ford has coming out this year.

Ah bummer, looks like its a Dallas only event, bit of a far drive. I don't think Houston has a big autoshow until late January.

Glad I chose velocity blue. It looks good and it's not another white/black/gray color like two thirds of all cars.
I kind of wish I would have kept the Blue also but I didn't(I mean my wife decided) for the Carbonized Gray...Since it looks good on Mustangs lol I can't change my XL since it's in production

Looks like they left the XL at home. Glad to see they brought some, 3, outdoors for us to get into and play with. I'll be making a few stops at the Fair and make sure to get some time with the Mavs.

went to the state fair today to check out the Mavericks:
Point to make:
1. If your going make sure to grab your free water bottle and hat.

fyi the free water bottle does not fit in the side cubby in the door 😂
2. I sat in a ranger, maverick, frontier and the Colorado. The maverick was my favorite to sit in the frontier is Roomie but the Colorado and Ranger felt stuffy. I could be bias but who knows.
3. if you wondering what the back center console looks like without a lux package. It’s just one 12v port only ( No usb)
4. If you on the fence on whether to get the XLT luxury package I say go for it, I’m upgrading my order after see all the extras today.
5. Under the cab is covered so I couldn’t tell if there is a spot to attach aftermarket tow hooks.
6. For you car guru out there here the cars I know are off interest right now:
1. Maverick 3 you can climb inside one to just look at
2. F150 lighting looking only
3. New Escape
4. 3 Broncos Area 51, dark green and I think gray (both 4 door and 2) you can get in them
5. Branco sport
6. Ranger tremor
7. Colorado ZR2 new
8. New Frontier
9. Mach E mustang you can get in it

Great info, thanks!

The water bottle won’t fit in the door! Hahahaha. I’ve said it many times, the whole bottle marketing gimmick is a joke.
