The Ram 700 in Mexico I think would compete quite well with the Maverick if they brought it here
https://www.motor1.com/news/447996/2021-ram-700-debut/
Actually there is a number of small trucks available in Mexico that are not available in the US:
RAM 700
Renault Oroch
JAC Frison T6
Toyota Hilux
BAIC Vigus 3 (made in China)
JAC Frison T8 (made in China)
Nissan Frontier (different than the one sold in the US)
Nissan Frontier
Peugeot Landtrek

At one time there was a real small VW Pointer and a Chevy LUV
The old Ranger was sold in Mexico with both a regular and Crew Cab
Most of them would not be competitive in the US due to the chicken tax.

Mine was more middle of august and seems to have been delayed on shipping (blend date of 8/19, built 8/29 and still waiting to be shipped), but according to ford customer service as of yesterday, it’s still showing set to be delivered between the 12th and 18th of this month

Same here still not shipped yet but built on 8/29

My dealer called me the morning of the 14th and finally told me that my maverick has shipped, might want to contact your dealer if you haven’t already

Turn off caps lock. If you have a VIN, your truck is being built.

I didn’t know there were grammar police.
Caps lock has nothing to do with grammar. All caps is not necessary and makes things more difficult to read. I answered your question. Thank you for turning off the all caps.

Just read this and was amused there is something called a BAIC Vigus 3. Sounds like truck named by Monty Python. Biggus Vigus.

This is one reason the Chinese companies are not yet successful in America. They really need to come up with names that don't all sound like the strange supplier names on Amazon. This is one of the advantages long established brands have. Ford certainly did a good job resurrecting the Maverick name. GM has lots of old names they could be re-using like the Buick Electra name for an EV.

Anyway an amusing digression while I wait to see if my Maverick actually gets built in a couple of weeks. :)
