Looks like Hyundai is going to lose this battle. You agree?

Yes. Ford selling a hybrid truck for $4K less will kill the SC for sure.

Yes, there will always be some who dislike Ford and want the SC, but I really think Hyundai failed to understand that the small-truck market wanted a truck that was VERY affordable and gets fantastic MPG. They didn’t want a super fancy truck for a base model, if they wanted that they would have gone with the Lariat package.

Ford understood that they over-shot the small-truck market with the Ranger being too big, poor mileage, and being too expensive once it hit the XLT trim. Ford has redeemed themselves with the Maverick.

The Ranger is a very nice looking truck . But no one in their right mind would want a truck that big with a tiny 2.3 engine 4 cylinder in it for well over $38,000 bucks . I think the poor 2.3 will be shot at 100,000 miles .

I think the SC will find a small niche market but I also think it will go the way of the Subaru Baja. A vehicle that just can't make up it's mind what it wants to be. Not to mention the $$.
I disagree, the Maverick knows who it is, who's going to buy it,
It's the home owner, the adventurer, the suburban run about.
The only commercial use this pick up was designed for, parts running, and rentals
Nobody really thinks this pick up was design for hard truck use
No, the Maverick knows exactly who its for.
The Santa Cruz fits your description a lot better

He was talking about the Santa Cruz, hence “SC”

Sorry, but as you see I agree with you 👍
LOL, yes I was talking about the Santa Cruz. I think the Maverick will be a great success because Ford knew exactly what the vehicle was about and the market. Why do you think I ordered one :D

The Santa Cruz smacks of just taking an existing product the Tucson and rejigging it.

I apologize again, I got a little defensive because I felt like you were describing the SC and applying it to the Maverick lol
I'm totally in the camp with the SC will have limited run..2-3 years if they are lucky.
If it was priced better at least they would make their money back but I think in the long run it will be an idea that should of stayed behind closed doors....
