Sadly his review while oem parts could have included the upgraded 235 wild peaks for the test he was conducting if he were truly doing a fair comparison... I mean they are oem if u choose the optionI actually really enjoy Ryan's videos because he does things in stock configuration as much as possible. It is also worth noting that car manufacturers don't allow any changes to the vehicle when reviewing it, so it levels the playing field for all reviews regardless of if he owns the vehicle or not. By relying strictly on the OEM equipped tires and the drive modes, it removes all user changeable variables when testing the vehicle. It is worth noting that that material he is driving on is deceptively difficult and even the Ranger with a locking rear was struggling in parts.
You can cut them down like I did on my old Chevy S10.I originally selected the splash guards but somehow didn't make it on the DORA I signed. That was good for two reasons; 1. it turned out to be a late availability item and 2. after watching this video, not sure If I still want them now. I think for the most part the plastic will help out with the mud splash.
They come with the $795 wheel upgrade or, I believe, are also available on First Edition.Sadly his review while oem parts could have included the upgraded 235 wild peaks for the test he was conducting if he were truly doing a fair comparison... I mean they are oem if u choose the option
YES!! I live in East Texas as well, and Snowmaggedon is EXACTLY why I ordered AWD. My FWD Fiesta is great for fuel mileage, but with no weight or power to grab traction, 40ish MPG doesn't do any good stuck in my yard for 6 days. And I read we are probably getting Snowmaggedon 2.0 this winter.yup. it's not made for off roading, but can do a little in a pinch.
we had the cold snap of the century recently in East Tx where I live, and everybody was basically completely housebound due to frozen roads for 3-4 days, unless you had a 4WD, probably decent tires and some experience too. That's what I want the AWD for, and it should be great for that.
This is exactly what I love about the Maverick. That it’s a versatile little truck that will save you money, be easy to park and do just enough 99% of the time. Capability is nice, but for 99.99% of truck owners they rarely come close to using it.It's all about tradeoffs. You get good fuel mileage and on road drivability but that will take away off road ability.
I like the idea of a vehicle that is versatile, even if it has limits.
Welcome to Maverick.
I see a beefed up version of this vehicle in the future.
Agree. I like the little truck that could concept over buying a Ranger / Frontier that can tow more, off - road more but are just so big with a rougher ride, worse fuel economy, and another $10k - Surely there are times I would want a beefier truck but I just don't want to daily drive that large of a rig 24/7 -This is exactly what I love about the Maverick.
