Whats going to be hard is if both the trucks I want come in at the same basic cost $27,000 Making a decision between the two will be hard... I like both exteriors... one is a Truck and one is a SUV (looks) ...But the interior is where the Cruz takes the lead....and then you get to warranty..etc.., and MPG. I just saw a 2022 Tucson SE AWD for $27400 I ordered a Cruz SEL FWD so maybe it will come in at $27000 or less delivered? This will be tough and honestly the first on the Lot and I like it...It will be up to the dealer to make it happen, giving me what I want on my trade in etc..,

Anyone having a both trucks in mind ?

Remember. 27k is base for the Santa Cruz, and decently equipped for the Maverick. I love the way the Santa Cruz looks, but the hybrid powertrain of the Maverick sold me. Also the fact that Ford knows trucks and this is Hyundai's first rodeo.

Agreed, Hopefully both trucks will end up here within days of each other and I can drive both but I doubt it

I hope so for your sake. I saw somebody in another post (here or the other forum) mention that they were told a Maverick would be at their dealership for display. Not sure if they are going to allow test drives though.

Even though the interior of the Santa Cruz looks more modern and luxurious, the starting price point of the Maverick with a hybrid engine is better value overall. Add the FlexBed feature, that allows you to carry 4'x8' sheets of plywood and you got yourself a functional truck for a darn good entry price.

Have they officially announced price structure for the Hyundai? It'll be more I suspect but Hyundai makes nice interiors. I've heard horror stories of their power trains, however,y buddy had one go for over a decade. Nat aspirated.

I'm waiting for it just to see. Being coy lets me know it's gonna be pricey. I opted for the lariat hybrid so that's 31k, wonder what 31k Hyundai gets you.

I would have gotten that but I commute around 30 minutes and didnt want to pay more for gas than I am paying now, so the hybrid allowed for it. I may still switch it but doubt it. I wanted to want the XLT but I wanted the lane assist and such for the commute.

I'm still adding an auto dim rear view and maybe aftermarket speakers.

Same here with the commute, and the lane assist would have been great, but can't justify paying that much more for that convenience option. Truly wish it were an add-on item, but I know I'm dreaming right now lol

I actually looked to see if it was something I could forscan or add on. Its hardware intensive and would not make sense to try to add after the fact. Maybe I am wrong but I just went ahead and grabbed the next one. 5kish but I also got more speaker areas so that was a win. I suspect if it goes well they will expand that feature set out. I'd have paid another 1k or so for that probably. OH well at least I get LEDs and a few more doodads.

After driving a hybrid the last 4 years I’m spoiled. In future I will only drive a hybrid so I was able to eliminate Santa Cruz from the start. I do like the look and warranty much better but that’s about it. I do t want to spend a whole lot for 2022 vehicle because I’m sure I will be trading in for an EV in about 5 yrs or possibly less.

I really hope Ford has got all the main bugs, and glitches out of the Maverick Hybrid, when it is released to the public.
