Makes the Ranger seem like a monster in size. haha

Good catches though because that really puts it into perspective and makes the Maverick seem quite a bit smaller than I had originally been thinking. Still have to get up close and personal with one in person though to really get a perfect idea.

To my untrained eyes, the Ranger looks 6-8 inches taller, other than that i dont see much of a difference, 20k msrp seems like a great deal on the Maverick if it's that similarly proportioned.

I think that's what shocks me the most. In my head I was thinking a Ranger but lower ground clearance. This looks way smaller than that.

The license plate should not matter as you will never see it if you are driving (ha, ha, ha),

Indeed. However I still turn around and look at my beat up 99 ranger when I park somewhere. I love my Smokey the bear plates. :)

And as far as ground clearance goes, it looks like the Mav doesn't have much less. Especially since the Ranger is limited by the low hang of the rear diff. The beauty of independent suspension all around and AWD means there isn't really that much hanging down underneath.

Judging by the doors, the cabins seems to be of the same size. They are very similar in width. The Ranger is an FX4 model so it is lifted a bit. It all seems as expected.

I hope you're right. Ground clearance has always been one of my worries with the Maverick. I don't need Raptor level, but I want to be able to get to Bronco Sport Badlands levels at least.

notice the slant in these photos tend to exaggerate the size difference.

I have a feeling the off-road trim/package (whether that's Badlands, Timberline, or Badlands) will get the BS Badlands type of clearance, which just so happens to be basically the exact same as a FX4 Ranger.

I’ve been sold. As long as I can get the bigger engine for under $26k I’m all in. I don’t care what it comes with. I just want the bigger engine. The 1.5 seems a bit too weak on paper to be a reliable engine for home improvement material runs.
