I am wondering how tight the backseat is - there will be a 10 yo & friends back there. Also, does anyone know if there are AC vents in rear? Thanks

So far as I know, all newer model vehicles push heat and a/c to the back seat, but I'm not sure whether this one will be via moveable vents or some kind of system venting from under the front seats. I can't remember the exact measurements of the back seat, but it does seat 5, and the dimensions are a (very) tiny bit larger than the rear seat on the Ranger.

This video might help with size info.

Back seat is pretty small. Not the smallest. I'm done considering my kid for vehicles. I'm lucky enough to have a wife with a large vehicle, so if it's a road trip we take that.

No vents in the back. Cabin is not huge so it should be decent back there, if not toss em in the bed :).

I went to the dealer and tried a bronco sport, if you wanna try that it'll give you an idea of the dimensions.

Rear seating isn’t terrible. It’s surprisingly a bit larger than the Ranger (like the front seating):

the Maverick posts 39.6- inches of headroom, 35.9-inches of rear legroom (36.9-inch in the 2.0L) and 54.1-inches of hip room, measurements that are all incrementally larger than in the Ranger.

From what I've read, its comparable to a ford escape. My wife and I have a 14' Escape and only have 1 child (A one year old) and its plenty big enough for our small family. I would not say the rear seats are 'roomy', but I would say they are sufficiently large enough for most adults or teens. I wouldn't want to drive with 4 adults in the vehicle for more than 3 or 4 hours. But with children, you'd be fine.

Rear LEG ROOM Comparison's
Gladiator - 38.3
Ridgeline - 36.7
Maverick - 35.9
Colorado/Canyon - 35.8
Ranger - 34.5
Tacoma - 32.6

Not to shabby I'd say!!
Was just at the Chicago show, and sat in the Colorado, then the Maverick back seat. I am 6'0" and pretty slim. I fit much better in the Maverick. My friend who is 6'3" and about 70lbs heavier was about the same in both. The pic on the left shows me at the back door, and in the driver's seat. This truck is really small. :)

I compared it to my wife's dodge journey and it is about the same dimensions +/-. I have driven with 4 adults (me 6-2, 240, wife average, son 6-4, 300 in back and daughter 5-10) no problems. Not a cross country family traveller, but short trips it should be comfortable. It is a joke to call the maverick a 5 passenger, but if the 3 in the back seat are children without car seats, then yes they will fit, but the middle seat is really not a seat.

How was the seating position of the back seat? Very vertical? There are some crew cabs where the seatback of the back seats is too upright and not very comfortable.

It was a bit upright, but not as bad as some I have been in. It's hard to judge the back seat without getting to ride in it. Sometimes they are a bit firm and transfer too much of the road. This seemed ok, not great, but not the worst I have sat in. It's hard to expect a lot of comfort in a truck of this price.

Thank you for clarifying. For me it's probably going to come down to which truck has the more comfortable back seat, the Maverick or the Santa Cruz. My kids are tall and still growing so backseat room and comfort are important.

Thanks for all of the info. Does anyone know the size of the actual rear seat? Looking to pick up this dog cover to protect the seat but want to make sure it will fit? I saw Ford was offering one from the same manufacturer for about $50 more. Wondering if it is the same.
