Undecided
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!

New to this Forum, first post, been only viewing. Love your ride! Ordered mine 10/6, Hybrid Lariat in Cactus Grey with Hood Deflector, touch link lighting, Hard Trifold cover and security lock for the Tailgate. Going by your dates I should see mine in June! No worries I have a 2019 Black Ranger XLT as my trade in, the longer it takes the better my down payment. I opted for the hood deflector, have one on my Ranger, worth it with Black! Which is another reason Im going with a lighter color. Not an easy decision to trade in the Ranger, love the truck but tired of paying for gas AND Im totally sold on the eCVT, extremely reliable when compared to a regular hydraulic tranny. Enjoy your pickup, cant wait for mine...Recently retired and wish to cut costs, live in California and gas prices suck here.

Just a quick question. I’m getting ready to place an order (I know I’m really late) and was wondering if you could tell me, is the interior black, or more bluish? Some pictures I see look really blue, that would make a big difference in what exterior color I order. Thanks for the help!
The interior is mostly blue, with accents of light grey and the other colors, depending on the trim level (blue with blk/grey XL, blue with orange XLT, or blue with bronze Lariat). But as you can see in the pictures I uploaded, the incoming light can affect how that blue looks. Sometimes the interior plastic looks like a cooler blue, and sometimes like a warmer blue, depending on how the light hits it, and whether or not the light is coming in from an open door, or through a tinted window.

Of course with our color choice of Alto Blue, we think that's the best color complementary to the interior colors at any incoming light color temperature.

2022 Maverick XLT (Ordered)
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.
I ordered 6/29, still no build date. Last time I talked to customer service the explanation was “having trouble getting chemicals for spray bed”. Noticed this Mav had spray bed, what the heck.

There must be some truth there. A colleague ordered his hybrid XLT in August, no spray-in, and he received his on Jan 7 (11 days before ours arrived, despite my order placed 7 weeks ahead of his order).

Yes dazed89, I concur. Here's a view of the cactus grey with the Lariat interior...

This exterior/interior combo below reminds me of a choice I made on a previous car. I cringed every time I got in until I sold it a year later...

Oof that velocity blue contrast is intense.

Here’s area 51 in comparison.

I originally had a Cyber Orange on order until I found out how much blue there was in the interior.
Changed mine to A51, but Alto was a close second.

Area 51 is growing on me. Ordered an xlt hybrid in carbonized grey on 23 Oct. Have an velocity blue ecoboost xlt 4k as of 23 Dec which I plan to trade in on the hybrid. I don't mind the velocity blue actually.

I can't make up my mind between the carbonized grey which is old fashioned and safe versus area 51 which is more trendy. Think I have time to see more 51s in the field. The velocity blue that I own is a little too dazzling for me personally. Most who see the VB like it and one person gave a practical reason - very visible in traffic = more safe. Funny I like the pepper red which is definitely flamboyant... seems fun but like parachuting from a plane maybe scary fun:)

I don’t think it looks that bad with the Velocity blue. That’s what I ordered 2 days ago.

Funny you dropped the mats. Like tossing weight off a sinking ship or plane :) or the kitchen sink off your rv order!
I just did the same thing. Ordered Lariat with no options added. I didn‘t want anything to hold up the build. Most things can be added after delivery.
