It just might take three or more year’s but I’m willing to wait .
It will change pretty fast because the exterior and interior are just stale . My last truck was a 2000 Dodge Dakota Quad cab and even after twenty years it still appealed to me . And my second car is a 2004 Toyota Highlander and the car still appeals me . If the Maverick doesn’t meet the aesthetically pleasing bench marks for the interior and exterior looks . I will be patient and give them some time . But if something comes along thats small I will considerate . I am not brand loyalHey Trucklic.... I see a few body mods and flares? Looks like the new Maverick basically. I liked everything about the Maverick, except the front end. But I will live with it. I have been offset by Ford's front ends for years now. I think the Mustang front end is hideous. But I love the rear end! Chevy Camaros are ugly. But they sell. There are many cars or trucks now that look good to me. That's why I bought a new 2018 Challenger. It still doesn't compare to the original. I guess I'm just to old. When cars did have style. I wish Ford would have the Maverick front end with a better grille. I like the lights, maybe move the bar lower, and jut the top edge out farther. I think it would have more aggressive. But that is me. I like the tail end+++ FORDISH!
I am usually good at seeing minor changes in vehicle styling, but I am not seeing many here. The differences I see are the plastic fender flares, which very well could be added after market, aggressive tires and stancing, which same thing applies, as well as running boards, and FORD lettering in the grill. Most of those things could likely be had with a little bit of creativity and or aftermarket parts.
I think this is beyond wishful thinking. The Ranger technically starts at like $24k, so starting at 32k seems like a non-starter.To me Ford ONLY hit a home run with the Maverick on it’s size , gas mileage and price . You look at the blue truck above and see it as being a brawny looking truck and see it as a Tremor package. The Maverick will never be a FX4 or anything like a Tremor even though Ford will put these stickers on the truck .But what it could be for 2025 is the new revision called the Stallion . With the V6 2.7 Eco Boost and Hybrid. And the base truck starting at $32,000 .
But doing this would probably kill the the new Ranger .

Out of all the Rangers I have seen on dealers lots from NJ to Massachusetts .The lowest price was a little over $34,000 and most of them are closer to $38,000+ . And from what I’m hearing on this forum , most every one is up grading their Mavericks to packages that are bring their out the door prices very close to $28,000.I think this is beyond wishful thinking. The Ranger technically starts at like $24k, so starting at 32k seems like a non-starter.
This idea would be far better as an alternative version of the Maverick that just shares the platform and costs 3-4k more as a package. Its not different enough to be its own truck. Best of luck on waiting, though.
