Mox's phrase right here above = "...value-focused vehicle..." Price will be the determinant for the Maverick; don't price it anywhere near a Ranger (like the Ranger is so close to the price of a discounted F-150 now)

Been playing around with pricing based on what Ford charges on Escape. This is what I come up with for my Maverick:
$19,995 base
$1,245 D&D
$1,500 AWD
$2,225 SE pkg. (XLT?) including 1.5 Ecoboost if the base engine is different?
$645 Cold weather package
$150 Block heater
$375 Trailer hitch
$26,135 total estimated MSRP
If they charge an additional large amount for the 1.5 I will be out of the market. Ford charges big bucks for the 2.0 Ecoboost in the Bronco Sport
If the 1.5 is an upgrade engine I might be out...already its 'good enough' in the bronco sport

The biggest thing for me is price. If I can get it out the door at 26k I'll be happy.

Things I wouldn't mind having
1. Apple Carplay
2. Backup Camera
3. Bed liner

the less technology the better for me (and price). Our 2018 F-150 Sport has rubber floor mats, tiny 2.5 inch rearview camera screen, smallest infotainment display, AM/FM single CD player, BT, minimal 12v/USB ports, no Apple or Android connectability, no collosion warning, lane keeping assist type garbage. HATE the auto stop/start standard feature. We do like the 60/40 split folding bench rear seat, 5 select-able driving modes, 10 speed trans, shift on fly 4WD, manual electronic locking rear diff, and 6 foot bed.

Would love to have Maverick with most of the above configuration (except AWD instead of 4WD) and 2.0 naturally aspirated 2.0 I-4 from Transit Connect for under $25k... :cool:

I just went out and took a critical measurement that represents a "must have" for me. I have both dirt bikes and street (sport) bikes that will be transported in my next truck. I require around 74 inches of available space from the front of the truck bed to the end of the tailgate (front tire against the cab and rear axle just ahead of the end of the gate) in order to move a motorcycle. If the bed is 48" with 20" sides...it wont work. I kind of require a 4.5' bed.

same here. The ability to fit a dirt bike in there with this low step height is a huge priority for me . I'll keep an open mind until actual specs are released, but I really don't want to have to buy another trailer just for my bikes. If I wanted to go that way I could just tow with my Jeep Grand Cherokee and save costs of new vehicle or use our too-high F-150 with longer ramps. I'm thinking I could tolerate a shorter bed if I can get the 2.0L and AWD without being forced to go top of the line trim level to get it. Otherwise probably wait for new 2023 Ranger (local sales guy says it will be 2023 model) and compare features vs. price. Failing that, may be looking on internet for low mileage used 2021 Frontier with the V6...

Just out of curiosity are there any new vehicles in the United States currently that come with manual crank windows? To my knowledge they just don't exist anymore. I was actually telling my kids a couple of months ago how we used to have roll the window up and down ourselves, they are young and they couldn't figure out why that was ever a thing. It blew their minds, they just kept asking why.

There are not. It is more expensive to manufacture and install the cranking mechanism than it is to use the cheap motor.

Crank windows...smh. The last new car I had with crankers was my '86 CRXsi (and every car before that).

There's nothing better on a perfect day then hitting all four down buttons simultaneously and letting the world in. Or at the end of the drive being able to raise them all. Who wants to walk around to all four doors...TWICE...per drive?
