I think there's a couple problems with that article.

1) It was posted last July. Back when all we had seen were the hobbled together test beds running around. We've seen a lot more since then and it's pretty clear it's not just a TC conversion.

2) Until Ford actually acknowledges and announces this vehicle we, including the media, have very little if any solid facts to go on for anything regarding the Maverick. So an article like this is purely speculation from someone who knows nothing more, and usually less, than what all of us on here do.

Pretty inconsistent speculation.

"...according to the source of this information, Ford isn’t sure about the Mavericks chances of success."

" Interestingly enough, Ford is apparently looking to build 100,000 examples of the Maverick in the first year of production..."


I'm going on record as saying it will sell 150,000 units in year one...unless it doesn't! ;)

We've already seen pictures of prototypes driving around including pictures with interior shots. Clearly this truck is more than a "transit connect with a bed".

If Ford can actually come out with a trim under $20k, I doubt those trim levels will be glamorous, but the models driving around seemed to be designed and engineered to be compact trucks.

Will the bed be short? Undoubtably.

Will the rear cab be ultra-spacious? I sincerely doubt it.

In much the same way the Ridgeline is a heck of a lot more than a Pilot with the back cut off, I'd bet the Maverick will be far more than a Transit with a bed.

A Transit with a bed is actually exactly what I want for my business so I want it to be that.
Same honestly. This wouldnt be bad news in the slightest for me. Ive been following this truck since it was rumored to just be a Transit Connect with a bed and I was actually kinda sad when it evolved into what it is now. I just want super simple and reliable. Thats exactly what a Transit Connect based one would be.
