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. :)

Looking seriously at these stats and photos. 2.0 only for me to bypass the CVT transmission issue......the Model A Ford may have a little brother some 91 years later. 😂

I like what I see so far and I have owned numerous pickups through the years - but this would be a light weight and low workload truck ok for my present elder needs. ✔🌎
The CVT bothered me until it was pointed out it's not your typical CVT, but a geared version sourced from the Prius. It should hold up well, I haven't heard about any problems from those.

Thanks for the input about the CVT..... a test drive will be in order on this choice. ✔

Why did they reuse the Maverick name? "Ford Maverick" has negative connotations for anybody over 45. If they're going to reuse a name they should have gone with "F-100".

Edit to add, I think Ford will sell a ton of them.

Came here to see if this had been posted. Would be nice if @Administrator would get this on post #1 as well since it's great info for a non-Bronco model. I've posted the full image below in hopes that it makes it to post #1.

Ultimately this size comparison gives greater weight as to why Maverick is a great option until you get to about $27-28K, when Ranger becomes the overwhelming favorite.

I just priced out a Maverick while throwing all the beans at it, and it topped $35K, the Ranger you can get at $35K whips Maverick handily.

I think I'd consider one but need AWD, so therefore don't get the benefit of the hybrid engine and great MPG. :(

As far as Maverick vs. Ranger...are the interiors the same size, namely the second row? Hard to tell from the info that's out there.

In order to make getting one feasible, to be a daily driver along side my FE, I priced an XL at under $23k. I couldn't believe it! Bare bones, but with a spray-in bed liner and moon roof. Still so many more features than my '89 F-150 that had been my daily driver for years. $23k?? It was like adding a side of fries with my burger (the Bronco).

Thanks for the comparison chart and hard numbers.
Now I can throw the tape measure down on the garage floor to see where the length will fit into my garage and more importantly - my wife’s life as we maneuver around the two car garage.

At the described length, the Bronco and potentially a Maverick may make good stable mates. The senior Ford, well she has her own individual garage - all Model A Ford land out there. ✔🇺🇸

I was going to say some mean stuff. But I don't feel like it. But I will say that this... thing... is stupid and a waste of resources for Ford

that's a nice photo of the top of one of my favorite mountains there in your avatar!
Plan to take the Bronco up there, camp over night and then go up for some sunrise photos - when ever I actually get mine.

sorry for the distraction, but that's a nice photo!

Thanks for the reply....
I also live at the base of the mountain and I love the fact that your initial trips include a run up and camp out .....
Sounds great and I wish you well ..... now if we can get the vehicles built!
Hang in there!
