Idk man I think it's nice having choiceFirst off, a yuppie wouldn’t be riding around in a 15 year old Ranger. Secondly, times have changed, and most pickups have a minimum 7,000lb towing capacity these days.
People buy these smaller pickups, just so they can say they have a pickup truck. When in reality, a smaller SUV or crossover would get the same job done, more efficiently. It’s an ego thing.
The only benefit I see to the Maverick would be the starting price. But just like the Bronco, let’s see if that ends up being true.
By your logic there should be only large pickups, corollas, and corvettes on the road. Nothing in between
This certainly fills a niche and at that price point it'll turn the heads of those who would like a truck but simply don't want all that size and low gas mileage that comes with a large truck
But hey I'm categorized as a yuppie so maybe my opinion doesn't mean much haha
