When you read a name like Ford, you can be assured that the Maverick sounds like a top model. But as it turns out, its story is so muddied by baloney that not everyone is feeling so privy to the model itself. The manufacturer is going to stop orders on the pickup until after the Summer. Simply because there’s a need to prioritize fulfilling reservations that have been already placed. The Maverick is somewhat of a marvel.
But only somewhat.
The pickup goes up at $20,000 with a return of 40 mpg. A Ford is special because of American ingenuity. But the Maverick gives off something even more than the Ford name. It does have a low price while also showing off efficiency. The Ford Maverick is certainly a thing of terror, however. Simply because the truck has no real strength to it beneath the veneer.
What Is the Problem With Ford and the Maverick?
Really, the whole result of the Maverick is meant more than anything as a means of placeholder. Between the Focus and the Fusion, there is not that much room for the size of the Maverick.
In which case the Ford brand will be acceptable not only as fancy-pants trucks. “Affordable entry vehicles” are bringing first-time buyers right in the showrooms. Ford is not only a major mover and shaker, but they also bully. They bully the smaller cars. And the trouble is, as long as they’re seling large vehicles, no one will even question the rising gas prices. Sad, as it is, that’s a fact.
As long as Ford continues to appeal to bro culture with the Maverick-like models, there’s no true end in sight.
