For me it'll be between the next gen (6g/2023+) Ranger and Maverick (I get Z-plan pricing on Fords so why not save a good chunk of change). I currently have a 5g Ranger, which is wonderful, but I find myself not needing to use all of it's capability at this time. Maybe in 5-6 years, when we are looking for our next truck, we'll have upgraded campers, gotten more toys, priority changes, and/or whatever, then maybe I'll surpass the capabilities of the Maverick and go with a Ranger.

Either way, a hybrid or PHEV will hopefully be my next truck.

The new Frontier, and as a last resort, a legacy Ridgeline would be my fallbacks. I do like the redesign of the 2021 Ridgeline, but it starting at $40k is just lunacy. Man if Subaru redid the Baja I'd be all over it!

If I were to buy a truck but NOT the Maverick Id consider the current gen Ranger(with the better looking front end), the pre 2019 Frontier(to avoid the new V6 and having no manual or 4 banger options) and thats about it. I love me the single cab F150 also but they're quite rare. I also like the current Ridgeline and the first gen model of it. I dont like the teased redesigned front end on them at all. Just going the third gen Tacoma route it seems. Make it bulky and ugly for literally no reason. The Frontier and new Ranger are doing the same thing.

I admit that I'm keeping an eye on prices of pre-facelift Ridgelines and hoping that everyone wants the new ones. I'll take the added visibility of the sloping hood rather the butcher looks of the new one.
