Well that confirms my my thoughts all along. If Ford was a human being it just gave birth to one of those babies. Sure people will be along to fawn and coo over it because its new and fresh, but behind closed doors that will snicker about how ugly the poor kid is.

Cliff Notes: Its ugly as hell yo. Like Honda Ridgeline ugly bro.

Had a 2007 Limited, it was great. It's why I bought a Ranger since it was comparable. The rockers rusted, the cab corners rusted, and the bed was impeccable which I really appreciated. The transmission was crap however.
I had an 03 2wd Sport Trac with a manual, best truck I had, if I had been in a different financial position I would have kept it.

Honestly I don't hate the Maverick, except for the name. I think Courier would have been a better choice and I'm still holding out hope they change it.

I bet that think with the 2.7 from the Fusion Sport and AWD would be fun.

It’s tough to really get my head around this thing without seeing it in relation to the Ridgeline or Ranger. To me, it‘s what a Nissan Cube would look like if it had a pick-up truck bed.

Maverick mule & Ranger
Thanks! That pic of @AzScorpion stalking it really helps. Oh man, it looks so much smaller than our Rangers - that’s a good thing. But, I still think the back of the cab has that “loaf of bread” look of the Nissan Cube.

I think @r1ch999999 might not have been around during the Maverick run in the 70s but I think the name is good - better name for a “truck” than it was for a car. Mustang, Maverick, Ranger - it fits the whole pony thing Ford has going on. It’s a “truck” on a unibody platform, so yeah, it bucks (sorry) the norm - it’s a bit of a ”maverick”. With that said, I think they could have also gone with Ranchero - it‘s certainly small enough.

My neighbor had a Maverick, "upgraded" from a four door to a two door. You don't see many around.

The 2-door looked a lot better, that’s for sure.

The fact that you can get this Maverick in AWD well equipped for about $32k-$33K will make it a hot seller. People (like me) are sick of seeing $40k,$50k,$60k and higher MSRP. I think this thing will sell like hot cakes, Kind of like the Bronco Sport is. The Hyundai Santa Cruz looks like azz. Worse than a Ridgeline. This Maverick at least looks a little macho. It will be a success.

I don't hate the name or the looks or the powertrain, but it is just too small for our needs, and I love F-150s, but they are just too big for our needs, which makes the Ranger just exactly perfect for us. All of this makes me think that Mavericks will find their market, and I hope they do!

Someone on here brought up a good point that they're gonna make really good fleet vehicles for contractors that need a box but not a large vehicle and it makes sense to me.

I could see this thing replacing the shit-ton of Ford Escapes I see being used by companies like PVS and G-Tel.

On Thursday morning I was on US 93 south of Alamo, NV, I saw one in camouflage headed the other direction...
