would think it might be offered in an all electric version at some point .
At some point most vehicles will be all electric, so I wouldn't doubt it.

Was just doin a build on a 2021 f150 for fun. It really made the new ranger feel outdated.
Maybe that was just me. Good thing the ranger has all the features I would need and isnt over 50 grand.

But that 7.2 kw power pack and the 36 gal fuel tank on the f150 though. OOOo hubba hubba. 🥴 dios mio
Yeah, I was doing the same just for fun (will never get one), but was a little dismayed when an XL Crewcab 4WD Hybrid was already over $50k without any other addons. Not that you'd really need any other addons though of course.

I wonder if we'll see a Maverick RS with the 2.3 and a manual. Or an ST with an automatic would even be ok.

I like the Ranger, but I kind of like speed too.
:party:

Looking at the contour of the hood and the taillight cutouts, I see Bronco Sport. The bed would probably hold a 250cc dirt bike with the tailgate down- they fit in a Ridgeline.

I'm skeptical about the powertrains. The 1.5L I-3 is "drony" in a '20 Escape IMO; the 8-spd short shifts at too low an rpm. The 2.0L I-4 is starting to show the same P0301-P0304 codes -engine misfire coolant in cylinder that the 1.6L and 1.5L I-4s are experiencing. I'd consider the hybrid AWD, but it will only be available in a crew cab, so a pass for me.

What nickname should it have? Mav? "MavLine?" 'Rick? 'Ricky?
Name Stumpy2 ....2.0/ I-4, I’m all over that setup..Tuners Dream !

Until you get to the dealer and they tell you that you're stupid to look at anything but an F150 because that's what you really want. :rolleyes:
My salesman was right up front, told me I could get the same options in an F150 for double the price.

I think it looks great and will have a niche- people who think that the current midsized trucks are too big, unrefined, and “trucky” but still want an open bed for dirty gear or the odd furniture or appliance. Most people I see with trucks never take it off road and I never see them use the bed.
i do worry about ford saturating their own market and Ranger (again) getting the short end of the stick. I love my Ranger but Ford didn’t seem to take much care in getting it to consumers- we don’t have cool doodads like the bronco or the bronco sport has (easter eggs on the windshield, integrated molle panels, snazzy tie-downs (infact many of us lost two in the bed!), and in comparison to the refinements of the F150- we don’t even get their leftovers from 5 years ago. It’s crazy how we didn’t even get an ignition trim on our trucks!
Anyway, what I am trying to say is that while the Ranger is an excellent truck, ford will likely see a decline in sales of the ranger because of these new offerings and I hope ford doesn’t think it’s because people no longer want rangers, but because ford neglected the ranger for its new siblings.
I'm of the same mind Ray. While the Ranger may pull some sales from the F-150, the Maverick could very well gut Ranger sales. Myself I wouldn't be interested in a smaller truck like the Ranger. I just sold a '92 Toyota pick-up because the bed at 53" wouldn't carry some of the things I needed hauled, and I just used as a weekend warrior. However, I wish Ford luck, and hope I'm wrong.

If it has some of the guys on this forum thinking seriously about getting one, then it will find its market more generally. For me, the Ranger is just the right size right now. I would consider going a little bigger and heavier in future but would not want to go in the other direction. To each his own....
like how it now bumped my wife outta the heated garage, my 4dr hemi ram never fit that well..sure I could shoehorn it in to work on it but it was a pain the butt. love how it is so much easier to park, I miss all my cubby/bin areas to stow stuff though.

Please excuse my amateur photo hack... but a two door looks promising.

Think 2022 Maverick Ranchero
