Doug Demuro always does a good job on reviews.

Yeah, that’s pretty much what I was thinking too. But with EV600 launching soon out of CAMI, I can’t help but wonder what the future is for the vans at Wentzville. Some or all of that space could be opening up.

Didn't GM invest billions into Wentzville recently? Not sure what was involved there or if it ever happened.

Now that we've gotten to see more on the Maverick, I think Ford did a pretty decent job here. Still not going to appeal to those guys looking for a small extended cab truck with a 6' bed, but past that I think it will find buyers. Lots of people seem to have positive comments on the hybrid engine being standard. I'd have to go with the optional 2.0, but that's just me. The mileage the standard engine is promising seems very good.

The interior looks good in my opinion. The design hides the fact that they had to go cheap on this one.

In the end I'm wondering if they are just going to end up stealing sales from themselves (Escape / Explorer / Ranger / Focus) more than from their competitors. Will be interesting to see. Great appeal for those people that are already driving smaller / cheap / good mileage cars. Now they can get all of that, but with a bed.

Isn't Kia/Hyundai due to release a mini truck soon? Maybe the proactively targeted that.

Yeah at the end of 2019 for the 3rd gen midsize trucks.

I see Hyundai lifted the bumper step from GM.

Would this Maverick truck be eligible for the $7500 tax credit?....It's a hybrid, but not a plug-in hybrid? Not sure...The other available power-plant is not a hybrid...

Imagine a brand new $12,500.00 Maverick truck...I'd pull the trigger for sure if that were the case.

The $7500 federal tax credit is for BEVs.

And Plug-in Hybrids. Since the amount of incentive is based on battery size, PHEVs don’t qualify for the full amount.

Ford is throwing everything on market. I feel bad for their parts/seevice department, they just have so many cars and so many engines to remember!

It's precisely the reason I'll purchase a base model as a second vehicle once the dealer markups have dissipated.
