Will any model of Maverick be offered with a manual transmission?
Good point, so I guess it really is possible.Maverick XL base is 2wd. Bronco sport base is AWD.
To keep costs under 20k the possibilities are high
I was thinking the same thing the EcoSport. That might be the best/only course of action for Ford. I can't see them developing something new for this truck.When the Ecosport can be equipped with manual overseas, why not bring it to the north american market?
The Ecosport also uses the 1.5L dragon. enthusiasts are not the only people seeking a manual transmission.
entry level 100%Valid point @Airic6661 and that very well may happen.
Would you be okay with that manual being offered only on lower Maverick trims? It's the only way I see this happening and it follows a proven path that other automakers have taken with entry-level vehicles. But higher up the model range we should be getting optional all-wheel drive.
Totally agree.entry level 100%
will be the only way I(probably many more) can get into a truck with budget I have to work with. I live where most would say the NEED AWD to drive in the winter. I currently have a Chev Sonic. FWD works perfectly fine
entry level, less bells and whistles, less electronics, less chance of stupid issues.
I work at a Ford Parts counter.
Probably going to be something similar to the Bronco Sport.Totally agree.
A good set of winter tires on most passenger vehicles regardless of the platform will get you through the winter season just fine. Any specific winter tire sizes you hope to see Ford recommend here?
