Ordered 6/29. Original build date 11/29, then 12/6, then 12/20, then finally built 1/3/2022. Shipped on 1/4 or 1/5, stalked the rail car movement until it arrived at Wayne Assembly on 1/16, and delivered to the dealer 1/18 (yesterday).

Very happy with this new addition! The Mav's overall height seems shorter than our 1995 Ranger 2.3l s/c 4x2 M/T ($14.5 k MSRP in 1995). [Update: Ranger of that era actually had a shorter height than the Mav.]

BTW, that Ranger M/T 5-spd with manual windows was anemic with it's 112 HP and 135 ft-#. Fast-forward 27 years later and I get this loaded Mav for $31.8K MSRP??!! DANG...inflation adjusted, this is the best value automobile out there!

The animations on the drive modes are so slick. I like the subtle B&O audio logos. B&O (Harman) did a great job with the audio, and a quiet interior. As quick and as quiet as the similarly-powered 2018 Fusion Titanium Hybrid I'm replacing. Seems like the Mav has better freeway passing ability as compared to our 2018 Fusion Hybrid. The Mav does not come with auto-dimming, electrochromic rearview or sideview mirrors, but I can live with that. The lane centering system is awesome, and way better than the lane keeping aid in my 2018 Fusion.

Alto Blue seems very different in various lighting. I swear I can see some greenish hues at times. My wife disagrees, and tells me I'm color blind. Anyway, it makes me reminiscent of the bluish-green Ford Explorers of the 1990s/2000s. Alto Blue looks almost black when it's overcast. I prefer a purer blue metallic, like the 2022 Mustang Atlas Blue.

But back to the Mav, Alto Blue is a great contrast to the blues in the interior panels and seat trim. I would not want to look at the door jambs of a Velocity Blue Mav against this Lariat interior trim or seating trim.

The Mav feels spacious (front and back) for my 5'7" frame. No floor mats in the back seat? Strange.

39.5 MPG c/h mix on my way home from the dealer on a 38 F morning.

Factory soft trifold tonneau fits well. The weep holes look clean (my build date was after the recall on the weep hole clearing procedure). Here are some pics!

Is Alto blue the same as antimatter blue?

Would love some side by side shots in the same lighting. Antimatter is almost black until light hits it which makes a deep blue color. The Alto blue is very dark blue until light hits it which makes greenish hues show in the blue

That looks awesome. IMO the Alto Blue goes best with the Lariat interior and these photos don't change my mind one bit. Congrats!

I agree Alto is best match for Lariat interior. But too dark of an exterior for me. So I went with Velocity.
I too wonder about the Velocity, when door is closed. Looked ok in pics. I figure, worst case I could wrap the door jab with black.

Thank you Hawk! This will help my case for not being color-blind!

My 97 Ranger next to Maverick at Dealer. Ranger looks a bit bigger with cap but Maverick a bit taller & wider. (ps, forgot to mention I have heavy duty springs/shocks on my Ranger do it's even a bit taller.)

I ordered XLT on 6/30 Alto Blue. How is it you got yours so quickly and I still don't have a build date? Can someone on here explain this please.
The short answer is "No, no one on this site can explain why this is"...the long answer is "no Sir, no one on this site can explain why this is"....

Would love some side by side shots in the same lighting. Antimatter is almost black until light hits it which makes a deep blue color. The Alto blue is very dark blue until light hits it which makes greenish hues show in the blue
Yeah I run into this....Alto Blue was initially my first choice if I were to get a Maverick, but it so often looks almost black that I need to see it in person to know for sure.

Very nice! I wish I would have upgraded my XLT Lux to Lariat Lux before the price increase, but oh well. The Lariat interior has really grown on me and looks fantastic with the Alto Blue.
