    Troubles with Maverick launch

    I said it before and I will say it again. Ford screwed up by making Maverick a regional product like they did with Puma. This truck is going to have worldwide appeal. Pickup truck is now the fastest growing vehicle segment in China (!) for example due to Govt policy change that now allow pickup trucks to be driven in urban areas. Maverick will effectively replace EcoSport in North America... would have been interesting to see how it does as entry level Ford in other places.

    Horizontally it occupies the front 13" of the bed. Vertically it occupies the top 12" of the bed and has about 10" of vertical space underneath.

    You can get 8 in an Expedition but 4 of them need to be under 12.

    Mine arrived Thursday. Dealer won’t have it ready until Monday. I stopped by and had a look and I’m really happy with it.

    Has It Started?

    Two more reassuring statements and actions from our leaders 1) Fauci: No ‘Firm Answer’ on Why Americans Who Recovered From COVID-19 Should Get Vaccinated. 2) USPS = 650,000 plus employee`s don`t have the same risk`s of the Chinese Flu as other American work forces?

    Hi all, New member, beeen lurking for a while, finally decided to join the party. Ordered a 250 on July 29th, confirmed that day. Lariat, 4x4 CC short bed, Oxford White, Baja tan, 7.3. Last new truck was 2014. Didn’t anticipate this but I am really getting excited about it, and can’t do a thing about it except obsessively surf the forums 😆

    I'm surprised noone noted how similar the Interior is to the f150s.

    One example is gasoline for North America and diesel for ROW. At some point, hybrid will arrive and grab sales in both markets. Loving the squarer filled out profile of the new Ranger, it should go a long way towards converting a lot of fence sitters driving mid sized utilities, pushing sales higher.

    Unless I am mistaken about the vehicle in question (your dealer's other vehicle, VIN ending in 18864), it had a blend date of 26 August. 21 August could have been when the window sticker was initially generated prior to production. Per the JCT site (palsapp.com), it looks like this vehicle was "Dispatched on Sep 10 2021." If you use the Lincoln order tracking site with this VIN and the order number (found on the window sticker beneath "CONVOY"), it shows a status of "SHIPPED" with an expected delivery date of 15 September.

    Troubles with Maverick launch

    Thing I'm curious-is how can it be stolen with a PATS key? I get it can be put on a flat bed or something, but how do you operate it without a key?

    Troubles with Maverick launch

    Every one calm down. Ford is just adjusting their assembly lines and supply lines for the reality that, instead of 60% eco and 30% hybrid they need to produce just the opposite. Just looking on the Maverick Truck Club site the ratio is 30% eco and 60% hybrid . This simply means that Ford needs to get more engines eCVT and batteries, to the assembly plant, which could take a few weeks. Once the parts are at the assembly plant we should see production changing and more hybrid being built. This could happen to any company in the world. I think that hybrid is going to be the new norm. Full electric is still inconvenient, due to the time it takes to charge batteries. When they get the charging issue taken care of I think that electric vehicles will be the norm. When you think of it trains have been using a hybrid system since the 1950"s. ie. Trains use a diesel engine that connects to a generator/alternator that supplies the traction motors with the power to move the train. This system is the most efficient in the world for moving large amounts of goods cross country. I think people are seeing how efficient that gas/diesel engine, generator/alternator, and electric motors are, and with the global warming, are looking for alternatives to the gas guzzler. So hang in there, we will all get our hybrid truck. Ford is making adjustments for this new market, and made a bad choice. Who hasn"t done that.

    '22 Navigator Revealed

    I'm addressing both comments in one reply. I'm not disagreeing with the thought that more could have been done. But I will push back some - I wonder if Ford was also hesistant to launch too many new things in this wiht the state of chips and whatnot? i.e. maybe they had some more things planned but pulled back in an effort to keep things in production? As I also said before, if there's a year shorter timeline for replacement, it also makes sense they didn't change too much. One thing I will push back more heavily on is the MB comparison - the pictures above are all new vehicles - the S-class and hideous EQS - an unfair comparison to a refreshed Navigator. The outgoing S-class went from 2014-2020, and its refresh included new headlight and taillight graphics, a new lower front bumper, and a new steering wheel. So let's not pretend they swapped out the entire interior or something for a refresh. GM doesn't even refresh the SUVs, they just wait for a redesign. Again, I'm agreeing more could have been done, but from the manufacturing side of it, I understand the potential reasons for not doing more, even if others can't.

    There are plenty of reasons but you don’t want to hear them so let’s move along please.

    Perhaps just trying to keep the product fresh in a segment they've determined is critical? The opposite of what they did leaving it to rot for years. And if you think about it, 2018-2024 is 6 model years, so we just got the refresh a year late if following a 6-year cycle. Take it how you will, but Borg says there's going to be the next-gen ICE/hybrid for '24 AND an EV version a year or two later.

    to say its unexpected given all the crazy peripheral circumstances, would be rather unwise no?....I don't think there will be a faultless release by ANY manufacturer for some time...
