My next vehicle will be a Ford Maverick just so my dog and truck will have the same name. I’m obsessed!
Chris Mazur is the chief program engineer for the all-new @Ford Maverick. He worked on the F-150 + Mustang, too. This is the man behind the truck. via @freep @freepautos @engineers_feed @HistoricDET @thehenryford @waynestate @CityofDetroit @FordTrucks
A classic Ford truck, just smaller and under $20k: the Ford Maverick hybrid https://t.co/UNCgUGgzgC
@Steve_Mang Yah, my 2003 Tundra lasted me 15 years and would have gone more, but I wanted to downsize. But there are no small trucks. Looking forward to seeing what the Ford Maverick is in real life.
@GardenerAngry @Toyota I’m also looking at the Ford Maverick. Hybrid truck under 20,000!
The very '90s Ranger Splash seems like the right inspiration for a low-lift, fun version of the Blue Oval's little pickup. https://t.co/Nhe6gDO1uN
Really hoping I can afford the new @Ford Maverick when it comes out. Inherited my dad's 2004 F-150 Heritage and it is starting to show its age. A hybrid truck would be the dream.
@ErinJH77 @MalcolmNance @Toyota I was planning on a RAV4 purchase in a year. Now, I think I will look at the new Ford Maverick hybrid, a small truck. I hope they have a better record than Toyota.
Ford is definitely on a roll lately. The Maverick truck promises to be useful, with both passenger space (4-door) and cargo, and will be a hybrid, and will be sold at a reasonable price. Car and Driver magazine is excited. Expected starting price is just over $20,000. That’s a game changer for sure. Buy one and toss it in the bed of your F-150 Lightning!
It is scheduled to be assembled in the Ford Assembly plant in Hermosillo Mexico. Previously the assembly plant manufactured the Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKz. It is currently assembling the Bronco Sport and the Maverick is also to be assembled there.
I see you are in India. in the US, Ford just brought back the Bronco name on an all new off-road vehicle to compete with Jeep Wrangler. https://www.ford.com/bronco/ It wasn’t a relaunch because it has been 24 years since the last Bronco was retired, which was based on the Ford F-150 pickup truck. The new Bronco is a complete new vehicle and has nothing similar to the current F150. In other parts of the world - Ford is rumored to launch a new small truck called the Maverick. https://www.thetorquereport.com/ford/ford-maverick-small-truck-might-debut-in-2021/ The Ford Maverick Pickup Will Be Little More Than a Transit Connect With a Bed Might be Bronco based, might be on the Ranger platform. Might be on the Transit minivan platform. Once again, it is not a relaunch because the Ford Maverick name was previously on a small car in the 70’s. Ford Maverick (Americas) - Wikipedia Ford Maverick car - not the 2021 Ford Maverick truck.
I can remember when the head gasket went in my old Ford Maverick. I replaced it myself, and I think it cost me $12 for a new aftermarket head gasket. There was nothing on that car that was expensive - it was cheap and built to stay that way. Mind you, I had to take the head off and do all the work in my own garage by myself. It also cost about $30 to replace the rear bumper when a pizza deliveryman ran into it going sideways while trying to avoid a dog on ice. If I bought a cheap new rear bumper and bolted it on myself, it was a lot cheaper than having a shop do it. Rear bumpers were also a lot simpler back then. I replaced the head gasket on my Datsun (now Nissan) pickup truck, but I had the shop do that. I think it cost me about $200. They told me it was more expensive than a 2WD because it was a 4x4. I said, “Why? You had to reach higher to take the head off?” No it costs more because 4x4’s are always more expensive. If you do the work yourself, it can be really cheap. If you have a shop do it, it can be more than the value of the car. Either make lots of money or learn to do mechanics yourself - there are night school classes for that.
My experience is horribly dated, but the frustration I had is still palpable to me. My first car was a 1970 Ford Maverick. I grabbed this photo off a website, but mine looked something like this: This was considered to be entry-level, basic transportation. I think the early ones sold for about $2000. This car got me through college, took me all over California, and was eminently reliable. The one I owned was, in a way, my second Maverick. The first one was a loaner from a friend, until I got rear-ended on San Jose’s infamous “Blood Alley” while coming back from an ROTC exercise very early one morning. The impact was sufficient to cause me to drive into a utility pole. My passenger and I were both wearing lap and shoulder seat belts (which, at the time, meant finding and buckling two belts each time you got into the car), and after this, I became a believer in seat belts. Neither of us suffered a scratch in the accident. The photo was taken at the junk yard where the car was delivered. My second Maverick met its end in less spectacular fashion. I had recently graduated from college, and was living in a house on Leigh Avenue in South San Jose. Leigh Avenue is a mostly residential street, but is wide and tempting to speeders. To aggravate things, the house I was living in (5019 Leigh Ave.—please don’t bother whoever lives there now), was on a street had a dogleg just north of us, and daredevils liked to hear their tires squeal as they negotiated the curve. There was no space for me to park in the driveway, so I parked at the curb. One night, a young man knocked on our door to ask me if I knew who owned the Ford Maverick parked in front of the house. He had hit it with his pickup truck. I don’t have any photos of it, but the damage didn’t look that bad to me. Still my insurance carrier didn’t think it was worth repairing it, so they told me to go look for a new car. I know close to nothing about cars. When I get into them and insert the key, it’s supposed to go VROOM. If it doesn’t go VROOM, I have to take it to the car man and ask him to fix it, handing him a bucket of money. I am often told the repairs will require two or more buckets of money. This was the mid-1970s, and Volkswagen was venturing into a new market, away from their Bug and Van that were so iconic. Their sexy, sporty model was the VW Scirocco (“like a hot desert wind…”). I was shopping at the VW dealer, and a salesman saw a target of opportunity. He convinced me that this car would make me irresistible to women, or something like that. It also had air conditioning, something I truly missed in the Maverick. I bought the 1976 Scirocco. It looked like this: If it doesn’t say “Chick Magnet” to you, there’s nothing wrong. I maintained my reputation of being utterly resistible to women. Although I didn’t know it at the time, buying a VW Scirocco enrolled me in the Volkswagen Part of the Month Club. I had to repair or replace the ECV valve, the carburetor, the air conditioning manifold, the radiator (I did get to have a little fun with the repair guy on that one, as he thought VWs didn’t have radiators—the Bug and Van were air-cooled engines), and other parts I have forgotten. The spare tire in the trunk turned out to go onto another vehicle entirely. The car was in the shop as much as it was out, and I didn’t have much money for stuff like this. I was considering trying to find someone who would steal it. The Scirocco met its end while parked in exactly the same spot as the Maverick had been. This time, the striking vehicle was a 1960s-era Chevy Malibu (this was a big car), driven by a biker type with a suspended license. He hit the Scirocco square from the rear, knocking it three houses down the street, on the opposite side of the street, and facing the reverse direction. I had just fueled it, so the tank was full. It burst into merry flame. The sexy magnesium wheels helped fuel the fire. When the fire department showed up, they just watched it burn for a while. I asked the fire captain, “I don’t want to be telling you how to do your job, but are you going to try and extinguish that?” He knew it was full of gas, and it was safer just to let the fuel burn away, so long as nothing else was threatened. I had to agree with his reasoning. It was a hot fire. Every time I drove down that street after that, I was aware of a dip in the asphalt that was created by the fire. Once it burned out, it was towed to a junk yard. This is what it looked like: Of course, this meant that it was time to go car shopping again. This time, I enlisted the aid of my roommate, who was a professional engineer and car buff. He had a Datsun (now Nissan) 240Z. He convinced me that I would not go wrong buying one of these. I shopped the want ads and found a guy from Reno who had tried to sell his Z in the papers there (this predated Craigslist, and most of the entire internet) and had been unsuccessful. His brother lived in San Jose, so he put an ad in the ,San Jose Mercury-News ,and drove the car down to show it to prospective buyers. The car had been a present from his parents when he graduated from college, and he drove it through law school and his first professional jobs. The 240Z is a two-seater, and his family obligations made the car impractical. My roomie went with me to inspect the goods, and told me this would be a sound purchase. I had already negotiated the car loan, but it was a Sunday, and I couldn’t get a check until the bank opened on Monday. However, the loan officer who had approved my loan was also my fraternity brother. I called him for guidance, to see if he had any suggestions. He replied, ‘Can your guy be at the bank at 3:00 PM?” He could. Bob would meet us there. The seller was an attorney, and was a bit incredulous that I could get the Bank of America to open for me on a Sunday. However, at the appointed hour, Bob showed up in raggedly jean cut-offs, a tank top, and sneakers. He had been playing racquetball. He took a minute to turn off the alarms, then opened up the bank and made out a cashier’s check for $3000, the agreed-upon price (if this seems low to you, keep in mind that my full-time lab technician job was paying me $12,000 per year). The seller walked away a happy man. I was pretty happy, myself. This is the car in question, the photo taken the same evening: A few months ago, I saw Bob for the first time in almost 30 years at a fraternity reunion dinner. Bob, then and now, you rock. I drove that car all over the western states. It never broke down, and the few times it gave me a little trouble, the fix was always easy. It was huge fun to drive. However, the car was almost six years old when I got it, and it started to need frequent repairs. By then, I was living in Reno, and the only Datsun dealer/shop there refused to maintain any kind of a parts inventory for the older Z cars. I often drove it back to the Bay Area to have repairs done. I eventually and reluctantly traded it in to Hertz auto sales, and bought a Chevrolet Camaro. A year or so later, I was on duty at Reno PD, and was part of the contingent that was busting a teenage kegger. I saw what I thought was my old car across the street. I examined it more closely, and knew from the VIN this was my old car. I found the new owner, who had to be maybe 19–20 years old, and told him he had my old car. He said, “I’m trying to get rid of it. I’ve blown up the engine three times.” Had there not been multiple witnesses, I might have killed him. One of my current acquaintances is a nuclear engineer who drives around 40 miles one way to get to work. His usual commuter is a 1977 VW Scirocco. He has no idea how many miles it has on it. I’ll guess that the odometer has gone around at least three times. He fixes it when it breaks down, although he says it’s getting harder and harder to find parts. TL;DR: Ford Maverick, Chevrolet Camaro good; Datsun 240Z doubleplus good, VW Scirocco bad.
Provided it’s a compact, like the original Courier, and priced well, it should be a big seller. Other auto manufacturers should take note here… Also it would be nice if it were available in a 2-door, standard cab model with a normal 6-foot bed, and not a 4-door with a tiny, useless bed… It will supposedly be based on the Bronco platform with unibody construction.
I was trying to remember how many times this has happened to me. At least four times. I was an ambulance EMT, off duty, 1975. On my day off, I had been out doing something that evening, and stopped at the company office on my way home to visit with the dispatcher. While we were in the office, we heard a loud noise out front. I walked outside and found my car, a 1970 Ford Maverick, sideswiped on the left side, the one exposed to the street. A drunk driver had hit it, then further lost control, drove through a board fence, and into the side of a house. Suspended license, no insurance. Police arrested him. Living in San Jose, on Leigh Avenue. The house was at the end of a dogleg in the street that people liked to use as a speedway. Pickup truck rear-ends my parked car, the same Ford Maverick. That was the end of it. This one had a license, but no insurance. Living in the same house in San Jose, car parked in the same spot, this one a 1976 VW Scirocco (worst car I ever owned). Biker type hits it from the rear with his full-size Chevy Impala. The car bursts into flame and burns merrily. Suspended license, no insurance. Biker says he wasn’t driving the car, but could not explain who might have been. “He ran off.” Yeah, we’re buying that. My Honda Accord is parked in the lot of the main post office in Reno. As I am getting ready to pull out of my stall and leave, a car tries to pull into the stall next to mine and hits my right rear bumper. Girl driving has no insurance and her license is suspended for no insurance. Actually, the car is insured, but she is not a covered driver because of her license status and driving record. She said she drives only for emergencies, but could not explain how anything at the post office was an emergency. She works part time at Burger King. It being a parking lot accident, I didn’t even bother calling the police (I was working for the police department at the time). I got her information and filed a station report the next day. Other respondents have mentioned what a good insurance carrier USAA is. Amen to that. USAA was my carrier for all of these incidents, and USAA made me whole again in every one. I’ve been with them for 44 years.
Even if they say yes, I would never put a winch on something unibody, its too easy to screw it up and risk injury in a crash. Anything thats Body-On-Frame construction, no problem!!
Kinda. The Maverick should have been named the new Rancheros, because that is what it is. If you are thinking of getting one, do not get the hybrid. The ICE is coupled to a Jatco CVT transmission. Guaranteed to be junk.
a dumb ass thinking they know every thing the maverick stopped production in 1977 . it was a economy car ,replaced by the fairmont
