The Maverick has the CVT automatic on the hybrid and the eight speed automatic on the ICE engine but this old codger would go woo who if there was an option for a three speed manual on the column. Those were the days. I will keep dreaming.

I am excited about the Maverick and I can’t wait to get one.

A powertrain feature like that would never pass emissions or achieve EPA targets under modern regulations. Sorry. 😔

While this is true, my Honda CR-V had a cvt transmission that was programmed to feel like it shifted when put into sport mode. I know this E-CVT weeks differently, but (big but.....) with a little programming and a stick-on shifter that makes people think they a shifting an old 3-on-the-tree? Anything is possible, not necessarily feasible or even a good idea, but possible.

Well, I suppose for a "simulated" experience, this may be viable. I'm guessing the take rate would be <1%.

Purists would be dissatisfied.
