Ordered 10/15, delivered to dealer 2/14, picked up 2/19. I had to wait for the 30-day farm bureau limitation to expire so I could qualify for the $500 bonus.
I haven't had it long enough to give any kind of detailed review, but so far I couldn't be happier. The ride is so comfortable and my wife's first comment was how quiet it is. I loved the comfort of my '18 Escape and this is equally comfortable to drive.
I have no complaints but i do sort of miss the shifter on the Escape which doubled as a hand rest. My right hand doesn't know what to do with itself.

As an aside, my experience dealing with Joel Diaz and Earnhardt Ford in Chandler AZ was top notch, from ordering to delivery. No problem with the price protection issue, no add-ons, excellent trade-in offer, even the finance guy was a blast to deal with.

Day 4 here - sooo comfortable to drive, a great looker, and the Lariat Lux packs that thing with so many settings it's going to take me 3 months to get it all dialed in lol.
I'm still blown away by the hybrid technology in this thing. 45 mpg at 150 miles, who knows where this is going to settle in at!

Congrats on your truck decision Keith, and FordGuy, you have a treat heading your way :cool:

Next up: Tonneau cover for the back hehe THEN it will be complete

Interesting you compared the ride to the '18 Escape, which is my current ride. Glad to know because I like my Escape.

Yes, as I said, I loved my Escape and went with the Mav because of the similarity and I wanted towing and AWD capability. Sitting in and driving the Maverick feels very close to the Escape.
BTW I was born and raised a Yooper, now in AZ... for obvious reasons lol.

Congratulations and I hope everyone likes theirs as much as I like mine. Just put 323.6 miles on today at 29.3 mpg. Mix highway and. At one point on the way it showed 33.1. Then speed limit went up to 75.

Mine should be there in a week or two. I've been wondering what others' experiences were... Did they tack on a bunch of crap? I said I wanted none of it but getting no response. (Sorry for going off topic in this thread)
