This leaked photo of the new Ford Maverick of it on the assembly-line shows more of its final design. It was taken at Ford's Hermosillo, Mexico, assembly plant where the Bronco Sport is built.

I’m liking the direction. Better than the ranger’s front end. Nice & squared off makes it a bit more masculine. Aftermarket options will allow change of that grill if one wanted. Let’s hope it doesn’t have the ugly avalanche style wings from the cab to the bed.

The current Ranger is an overseas model that will soon be replaced by a next-generation Ranger. It should build on the real truck styling seen here. My hope is that it looks closer to a baby F-150, sort of like this:

I agree. They seem to be adopting the Jeep mentality. Small entry level vehicle Compass/Maverick), midsize next step up vehicle (Cherokee/Ranger), full size vehicle (Grand Cherokee/F150), large size vehicle (Waggoner/F250). Keep the overall design points similar among all trucks in the lineup. Gain that brand loyalty & get future purchases. Ford is all in on the trucks, Mustang & Bronco brands. I’m guessing the next reset the Escape, (maybe that raised wagon Fusion), Edge?, Explorer & Expedition will adopt the same design thinking.

Ive been keeping an eye on the Maverick ever since there was rumors of a smaller Transit Connect based trucklet rolling around a few years ago. Was kinda turned off by the mule sightings and the bare body sighting pics because its all but confirmed at this point they wont offer a non-crew cab model but Ill be honest this pic makes it look pretty adorable. Ill be seriously interested in checking one out if the prices are right. While I hate the crew cab setup at least I can use that interior space to rip out the rear seats and build a storage box for tools and what not.

Am I seeing things or is there separation between the cab and the bed? Doesn’t look unibody to me. I’m really hoping this is the Maverick but from other threads it seems possible that this is actually a new Ranger prototype. Thoughts?

I think the Ranger is made in the US whereas this pic was snapped in the Mexico plant where they build the Bronco Sport.

Are you talking about the separation where it looks like there's a separate bed behind the rear door? Probably still unibody underneath but that panel may be a removable piece for repair instances.

The Ranger is made in Michigan it shows online. The Maverick is to be made in Mexico. I think he may be talking about the renders above in silver/grey [im colorblind]. Pretty sure that is a Ranger render. It looks like that other one that is maybe blue from awhile back & looks like the green one that is a lot more finished.

That was what I was talking about. I appreciate the response. That panel would make sense. I was looking for someone to calm my nerves and you did just that.

Here is a render by Carsbite for 2022 Ford Maverick according to this spyshot:

It looks really nice, but that is not a unibody truck. See the separation between the body & bed? Also the front doors are from the F150. The small badging at the front fender/door says F150. I do hope the front end does look like this for the Maverick.
