Day one reservation on the Maverick. My girlfriend is a fly fishing guide in Colorado and this is ideal for her.
First of all she’s tiny, easy for her to reach in back of bed to get gear.
Second, lots of great connectivity, safety tech, and reviewers who’ve sat in it say good visibility.
Third, innovative storage and tons of it. Storage cubbies in bed, great storage under rear seats etc..

Heres the build we’re thinking.
-XLT AWD
-luxury package
-hard 3 fold tonneau to lock in gear
-360 safety package
-400w outlet package
-upgraded a/t tires-I believe they’re Falken Widlpeaks
-tow package

i think it will be a nice setup for her and still give her moderate capability guiding in Colorado and Wyoming.

40mpg for the Hybrid. Anyone know the MPG for the 2.0 Ecoboost gas engine?
Also does the Hybrid mainly run on gas still with electric back up? Where is the charging connection at on the truck?

That's basically the build I'd go with - going Lariat is just going to hurt your depreciation for little gain. XLT/lux is where it's at. I'd probably add FX4 though. Only $800 gets you skid plates and the Lariat gauge cluster screen, plus tow hooks and some heavy duty cooling. I'd bet skid plates on the aftermarket would be at least $400-500 so you might as well go factory.

Looking at it, its the 2.5L Atkinson setup similar to the Fusion or even the Escape Hybrid.

This is the vehicle-charged Hybrid setup. Mostly used at lower torque. Note the Power Gauge:

These rely on regenerative and regular electrical to recharge the battery. Maybe in the next generation/MY they may have a plug-in version.

This reservation isn't quite like the Bronco or Lightning reservations. It's more of a "Hey, dealer, I'm interested! Contact me!" 😄

No reservation deposit, no place in line or anything like that. Basically just a way of being contacted to be an early buyer.
Which has me a little concerned about the price since the Maverick could be a very in-demand vehicle.

The 2.0 Ecoboost gets 21 city 26 highway 23 combined in the Bronco Sport, I would assume the Maverick would be similar.

Yes!! Definitely adding FX4 I forgot to mention that, it’s a no brainer for the money

It may be time to give up the old Tacoma. Crazy thing is, these first gen Tacos are popular and easy to sell.

I'm not familiar with any of this. Lol. So you don't have to plug it in? It just charges itself?

Yep. Charges as you drive/brake through regenerative charging.

This does seem like a pretty nice vehicle and really practical for a lot of people. The thought of going for one of these even crossed my mind since I could get a totally decked out Maverick for less than the Bronco I ordered. However, the Bronco is what I WANT. Even if the Maverick would meet my needs and I don’t use the Bronco to its fullest potential, I know I’ll be happier in the Bronco. Plus, you can’t take the top off the Maverick. Now, if they’d just build my Bronco…..

I must've got lucky with my wife then, after having my Race Red Mustang for a few years, when we finally bought her a Jeep she went with Firecracker Red or whatever it's called (similar to race red).

I honestly think it's one of those colors that you don't really like UNTIL you have it. And once you have it, you just can't go back to anything else 🤷‍♂️

Throw in the fact it gets tons of compliments, you'd be surprised how many people (on a weekly basis) say to me "Nice car!". And it's only a 2012 Mustang V6 🤣🤣 the color is what does it ;)

Oh yeah babe, I was in there with the cool kids like Evil from day one. That was until the wife stepped in, and said "I like the Area 51". I was a bit sad, but what the heck, I'll still get the Bronco. I do have a Torch Red GM plastic car in the garage. So, I guess one can say I'm a half way cool kid. :)
