Base models for sure. People are asking for cheap, well these are most likely such. FWD, probably 1.5T, halogen lights everything and black plastic instead of color matched and steel rims.

I’m not that customer, but nice to see those that want such price point may be able to get such.

Want more power? Gonna pay. Want better lights? Gonna pay. More features? Pay. Well, you get the idea.

Price will increase quick, just as any other vehicle, but probably can easily be compared to Escape and Bronco Sport in that regard. Test drive a base model Escape and that’s probably what you’d be looking at for Maverick as far as appointments and feel. One can also look at a base Bronco Sport to get an idea for base AWD Maverick.

Curious how much longer before Ford actually reveals. Seems like they may be ready for production when revealed or at least within a couple months.
This.

I don’t mind the body color not matching the doors, and with the Area 51 I’ve got my eye on, I think it even looks better by giving some contrast.

The only thing I would change is the wheels. That to me would be worth the upgrade.

Mmmmmmm. Steelies. That makes me super happy.

So now they just need to confirm I cant get the 2.0 without spending an absurd amount (or by forcing me into higher tech packages I refuse to get) and Ill be all but set in getting a base. Looks perfect.

I looked up the bronco sport and you can’t get the 2.0 until the top model. Which starts almost 10k more than the base. It seems likely this would work the same way.

Why didn't the "new" Ranger have this front end (especially the headlights) when it was reintroduced a couple of years back?

Because the current 5g Ranger is based heavily on the global Ranger that has been around since 2012. Ford just did some minimal American-ization to the global Ranger to get it to meet US regulations. They didn't put any extra work/effort into it and rushed it out to try and reclaim a footing in the growing midsize truck market they stupidly abandoned in 2011.

The next 6g Ranger (2023) will very much have a similar front fascia and look to fall in line with all the other Ford trucks. Based on leaked renderings and test beds/prototypes driving around in the wild.

But no Orange Hooks that is a signature Timberline feature...
Maybe still hidden under camo? Hooks are there just need some paint, the rest should be interior upgrades, maybe more aggressive tires?

The 2022 model will. The current Ranger is the one Ford's been building for a number of years in Australasia (#1 selling 4x4 in Aussie!) and allowed a quick introduction on a proven platform to test the US market with minimal risk. A new 2022 Ranger is in the works that will look more in-line with the Ford "look" from the new F-150.
Current Aussie Ranger (look familiar?):

Here's a shot of the new 2022 Ranger Raptor. Notice the grill and nose:

You beat me to it! Apparently, the Aussie and UK Ranger will look the same as well.

Exactly! I think most people don't realize that the current Ranger was almost already 10 years old when it debuted here in the U.S. My Brother asked me recently why I wouldn't just buy a Ranger instead of waiting for the Maverick and I explained that one of the reasons is because it's already an outdated vehicle. He argued that Ford just started selling it two years ago, so I had to explain the whole thing to him.

This makes a lot of sense know that I think about it. I test drive one of these a few weeks ago and was very underwhelmed.
