    2022 Ford Maverick Pickup thread

    Nice technical dive into the Hybrid's all-new Electric motor. https://www.motortrend.com/news/2022-ford-maverick-hybrid-motor-technology/

    Better than I feared.
  3. Ok fire the front designer and promote the rear designer, because that looks crisp.
  4. Sadly, its not just the grills which bug me. The way the bumper/lower valence is high in the middle and droopy on the sides just irritates the hell out of me. The design puts the visual weight in all the wrong places, and fails to cohere with the rest of the front end. Last generation didn't have this problem, Ranger doesn't have this problem, Raptor and Bronco both look great, I don't know how the F-150 got cursed with it. Agreed on the interior, though, very nice.
  5. I still really don't like the front clip on this generation F-150, but the Lightning definitely looks better than the non-Raptor gas trucks.

    I really don't like the face. The rest looks pretty good, but man I'm just not getting there on the way the grille, headlights, and bar fit together. The old Ranger sketch that introduced this design direction I could take or leave, but the way these prototypes look actively bugs me. Hoping the final look has some of that "well it all works together" magic.

    Mustang Mach E Embargo Lifts

    The folks from the Wheel Bearings podcast are pretty positive, and they have a special episode just on the Mach-E.
  8. Amazing what a difference masks and contact tracing can make.
  9. Autoextremist tomorrow will be 2,000 words worth of wailing and gnashing of teeth.
  10. Clay model shot is interesting. I definitely prefer the finished product to this.
  11. The styling definitely looks like it would fit in the Bronco family. But I guess we just have to wait and see.
  12. Autoline interview with head of marketing for Bronco.
  13. Looks bloody fantastic. I've had my disagreements with Ford design choices at times, but this one's already got a place in my heart.
  14. Got no problem with Ford putting them in timeout for awhile. Not saying cut'em off forever, just make it plainly clear you expect better.

    F150 reveal set for 6/25

    Overall, a good looking truck. But I just can't get there on the front. The pouty grill shape and huge headlight housings just don't work for me. Totally subjective, though, I'm sure plenty will love it. And I've been on the outside looking in since the 2-bar thing became the norm, so I clearly don't represent any large slice of the market.
