Good catch, I hadn't really considered that. I'm more of a black/white fan myself, but I am intrigued by the orange.

...and the orange has matching orange rearview mirrors, denoting its on a higher trim level, dammit.
It may be the angle, but that vehicle looks lower to the ground and it looks like steal wheels. I think it may be a lower trim.

I don't know if it's the steelies, or the other black rims we've seen that match the Timberline rims on the leaked explorer trim, that would explain the matching mirror and handles as it could be a topping trim

Why aren't these matching the body side panel styling of Bronco?
These look pretty dull compared to Hyundai Santa Cruz
Some people want to have something dull and understated. Like myself. I don't want to be noticed by people. Again, it comes down to the beauty of having choices and preferences. If someone wants something "stylish" and standout-ish, then they have the Santa Cruz. If they don't, then there's the Maverick. Pretty soon, I'm sure there will be other choices.

I think what your are struggling with Clyde, is that the Maverick will look like a traditional truck, whereas Hyundai is taking a riskier approach with the Santa Cruz. History shows that non-traditional trucks usually fail in the market...but I applaud Hyundai for taking the risk. I looks like there will be choices for compact trucks, and we will be able to see how the market reacts.

Yeah, I specifically want something quite understated. I'm glad there's an option for folks who want more styling, and I'm glad there's an option for folks who don't. I don't really see the point of trying to continue comparing these two beyond that.

I'm almost the opposite. I assume that I'll be forced to buy a higher trim to get a "Badlands" style softroad package, but I like the contrast on the Maverick so I wish that the black handles were on the high trims too. Though I'll be happy if I can just add whatever offroad/towing options are possible on a base AWD.

Loving the size. Looks perfect IMO. Smaller than ranger, but not "mini" like my 2011 Reg Cab or older Hilux style models. Low bed rails, easy access, good economy. Cant wait to see it in person one day. I am honestly considering buying this new (first time ever buying new) and even a first year model...

The first thing I'm gonna do to it is tint the headlights ever so slightly darker...Something about that absolute clear headlight makes it look like someone forgot to take the vacuum sealed packaging off the headlights, the bronco sport gets around this by having the dark grey grille behind the clear lense...maybe blacking out the inside would help?

It's almost as if the eyes don't know the true curvature of the headlight, do you follow the line of the LED light, or the headlight casing?

my only other note, I wish the horizontal trim piece going along the grill would be thicker, we still have yet to see it fully convered so it might just work, but I do wish it was thicker like on the f150 where the entire ford logo fits inside, just for that final family look

I can't believe my eyes! Some of you might've of already known this, but I've had my doubts in the past about Cyber Orange making the Maverick's paint option list. Thankfully, I'm wrong. However, it's probably going to be available on the higher, more expensive trims (and even so be extra charge like on the BS), so I'd likely go for Area 51 or some blue color.
