    From SEMA:

    i-WJbbtQV-X2_2.jpg

    Here’s the upcoming Ford Maverick (Lariat?) AWD running with light camouflage, providing a best look yet at Ford's upcoming unibody pickup.

    The model seen here appears to be a high-end trim, complete with LED headlights, stylized wheels, a sliding rear window and an independent rear suspension that will enable AWD capability. Front-wheel-drive models will be equipped with a lower-cost, twist-beam rear suspension.

    The Maverick will share a lot with the new Ford Bronco Sport, including its production site in Mexico. The vehicle is expected to launch later this year, given that COVID-19 doesn’t disrupt production or supply lines.

    This is not a BOF. This is an actual compact truck. Uh, not cool.

    ummm, how much smaller is it vs the Ranger? Seems like it would be filling a gap that doesn't really exist

    yep, still seems stupid. With chevy didn't Colorado sales basically just cannibalize Silverado sales.

    So now some F150 buyers will drop to a range and some of those drop to this? Then again WTF do I know

    It is a bit ironic. We've spent years making fun of the Ridgeline, only to have one of our own now.

    Well, in absence of the cars which Ford will no longer make I guess we get stuff like this and the Mach E.

    The maverick is now a truck and the mustang is an suv, got it.
    For the love of god, roll out the bronco and give me hope.

    Dont get your Hope's up. I saw a bronco sport on 93N the other day. Looked like a squared off escape and the driver, well he looked like someone you would expect to be driving a squared off escape. Pretty sure his name was Kyle.

    I wonder if they will attempt to bring back the Adrenalin version of the Sport Trac in this Maverick? 2.3L Ecoboost, AWD and some more boost would make it a hot compact performance truck.

    Definitely looks to fill the void that the Sport Trac left when discontinued.

    Well, Honda does pretty well with fit/finish. Even not seeing the Maverick, I’m thinking it’s less of a girl truck and one befitting the more discriminating effeminate male.

    My wife wants a new SHO to upgrade her '15... And we get another truck version out of Ford.

    Sarcastic 'yay!' from our family.
