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.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.

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.These might help: Bronco Sport ghost on a Maverick mule

My neighbor had a Maverick, "upgraded" from a four door to a two door. You don't see many around.Thanks! That pic of @AzScorpion stalking it really helps.

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.
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.All of this makes me think that Mavericks will find their market, and I hope they do!
