I have an XLT hybrid on order and when delivered would like to avoid drilling holes for the front license plate. I sent an email to Sly brackets asking about fitment on the Maverick. Below is the response I received. It is my understanding that it does have active grille shutters, but I do not know the measurements. Can anyone here help me out and/or have one of these brackets? Thanks.

VERY IMPORTANT: Are there ACTIVE GRILLE
SHUTTERS between the LOWER GRILLE
and Radiator? (see TIPS and FAQ's on how
to check)
NO, ABSOLUTELY NOT. (This means you
physically checked behind the LOWER
GRILLE and your vehicle does NOT have
the SHUTTERS)
• YES. I MIGHT NEED A CUSTOM MOUNT.
(No extra charge. See TIPS and FAQ's on
how to measure)
If YES, enter measurements here (Measure
from front edge of mounting slat to front
edge of open active grille shutters)
A: 6" B: 3.5" C: 11/4"

Take a look at this DYI option for your front license plate,

In NJ about half the Teslas I see don't even put the front plates on. Guess they are entitled. MY sons a cop and he says they are not worth the headache to ticket them He says others with high end cars do it too. I don't consider a Model3 a high end car. Just an expensive one.

Thank you for the suggestion. I saw that one mentioned in the suggestions for front plate mount bracket thread as well and will definitely take a look at this option
i have this and it works great, no shutter inteference, it comes close so i trimmed the bolts with a dremel just in case.

That’s good to know. I will order this one since I don’t have to worry about the shutters. I see a review on their website with an attached photo. Is it possible to mount the plate in the center or is it necessary to mount to the side? Not a big deal, just curious, Thanks again

you can mount it in the center, it uses the vertical pieces of the plastic grill to attach.
