I believe with this introduction of the Maverick, Ford has just cemented the truck market and will be the game to beat for quite a longtime.

Additionally, the next Gen Ranger should also be decked out much in the same manner.

I honestly thought when I got the one I have now I would be all set for the next 10 years. Might be changing my mind on that thought now…

For someone like myself who lives close to the city, this would be a great truck. I got the Ranger because of it's size, but this one may even fit me better.

Sadly I'm going to be selling my Ranger in a couple months because I'm moving into the city and don't have a use for a vehicle anymore, but once I move back out and buy a house in a year or so I will definitely be looking at the Maverick. It's hard to beat for someone who lives in the suburbs of a major city.

It's obviously not going to appeal to everyone, but this truck will have its crowd and its uses. I only do DYI projects (which is why they mentioned it so many times in the video) so I don't need an F-150 with a huge payload. And this will be able to navigate the city as well, which even in a Ranger is cumbersome at times.

The fact that this starts at $20k, and I can get a Lariat for $30k is amazing. Don't know if I'd get the hybrid or the gas engine (probably hybrid since it'd mostly be a commuter/cruiser) but this is a truck for people who like trucks but don't really have a major use for them like myself.

Now, if I can convince the soon to be fiancé to allow me to get a boat.... everything I just said might fall by the wayside ;)

Additionally, if we finally get a Ranger Raptor then I think my interest in the Maverick would wane as well, but I'm not holding my breath.....

If I could get 40 mpg's for 20k in this thing I would consider replacing my winter beater with it. Would make me a great hockey practice commuter (45 mins one way, 3 times a week) for the kids with just a simple tonneau cover. I like it!

Like I stated its my opinion. That cross bar for the grill and the headlight/turn signal arraignment just doesn't do anything for me.
i didnt question your opinion, just offered mine that i see no connection to them at all.
Fords been running a crossbar on the truck line for a long time. the only difference here is its higher up than usual.

This thing is pretty sweet. As others said, it's not for me. I need to have a real 4x4 to be able to get through bigger snow storms when we retire to the mountains. If it came in a scab with 4x4, it would certainly be in the running.

The tricked out bed is nice, and the storage options too.

Yep and I never was really keen on them as well. The old school open grill with a blue oval in the middle is just fine. I know the Ranger Lariats have the bar but again not for me. Reminds me of stuff from the bow tie guys.

Some of you all are incredibly persnickety.

Hmmm. Just went to the build site and priced a lariat. Around $35k. I was disappointed though that AWD is not available with the hybrid. So, as I said, this isn't for me.
Same, I guess it's like the hybrid Escape in that it only comes fwd.

I'll check one out though when they're on dealer lots. It looks like a super solid little truck which is great.

Pro bro
I'm just confused; why isn't it called the "ranger sport"? Or maybe the ranger should be the "f150 sport", and this could be the "f150 sport mini"? Ford should pick a naming convention and then stick to it!
It's based on the Escape chassis, which I believe is just a unibody design. Ranger and F150 are body on frame designs. I think this is meant to compete with vehicles like the Honda Ridgeline.
