Hi Guys!
Super happy to be a part of this growing community, I believe the Maverick will be a game-changer for the vehicle industry. I've driven my current vehicle for the past 9 years, so I do anticipate in keeping my Maverick for just as long (if all goes well) + I'm very budget conscious.

Add-ons I wish to have in my Maverick:
  • Spray-In Bedliner
  • Rear Sliding Window
  • Trailer Hitch
  • Full Size Spare Tire
  • Moon Roof
  • 110V/400W Outlet

Having said that, I have the following questions I hope I get some clarity on before proceeding with placing an order.

1) With the XL trim, why is the Ford Co-Pilot 360 necessary when adding the Rear Sliding Window? (On XLT, you do not need to add 360 for the Rear Sliding Window).

2) Has anyone found the dimensions of the Moon Roof? I know you lose 2" of interior headroom with the Moon Roof, which may be a deal breaker once I sit in one as I am quite a tall fella.

3) What does this community and my new-found friends think of the add-on options above? I've done a pricing breakdown of the following 3 scenarios:
  • XL with all options listed above for $22,230 (without destination fee)
  • XLT without Luxury Package, but add all the options listed above, minus Ford Co-Pilot 360 for $22,090 (without destination)
  • XLT with Luxury Package, plus Rear Sliding Window and Moon Roof for $25,575 (without destination fee)

I guess I'm looking for some type of discussion around the price difference and if the added options you get as you move up are worth the money. Between the XL and XLT (the options I listed above), the price difference is $1,860 for Aluminum Wheels, Grey Interior, Power tailgate Lock, Rear Cubby, 4 Additional Tie-Downs, Power Mirrors, Cruise Control. Out of this list, Wheels, Interior and Cruise Control would be ideal, but not sure if that justifies the $1,860 price hike.

From there, when I jump into XLT with Luxury Package, it's another $1,485 price jump, and I would get Power Driver's Seat, Outlet in Cab, Locking Rails in Cab, Heated Mirrors, Heated Seats, Key Fob with Remote Start, Leather Steering Wheel, Heated Steering Wheel, Lighting in Cab. Out of this list, the Power Driver's Seat, the Heated Seats and Steering Wheel is nice, everything else can either be added on easily via Aftermarket or isn't that important to me.

Certainly a long post and lots to digest, again, would love to start a discussion on how you chose and settled on the trim and options that you did.

I think the XLT with luxury package is worth it if you can afford it. I also added the FX4 and 4k tow package. I added all this, because like you, I intend to keep it for a long time, as our newlywed budget isn't going to let me switch vehicles every few years. Since I'm getting a new vehicle that will have to be kept for 10+ years(barring major failure), I would like to get what I want, as well as as much capability as possible for when life says I need that capability. I also added copilot 360. My rationale there is: if Blind spot monitoring and lane keep assist has a chance of saving my future family's lives, $540 is nothing. For my XLT 2.0T AWD with luxury package, copilot 360, FX4, 4k tow package, plus full size spare it came out to $32,420. So I say, if you can afford it and you're going to keep this truck for 10 years, get what you want.

Edit: oh, I also upgraded the wheel and tire only because I didn't like the black aluminum. That was purely a want, but I still stand behind "this is my chance to order what I want and will have for 10 years"

Such a great point you make with the safety aspects. Essentially, it's peanuts with what we spend compared to our well-being. Also love the point of about "when life says I need that capability." I hadn't thought about it that way. I am looking to start to travel a bit more in the next few years, take a few more road trips, having extra options at my disposal will never hurt.

Yeah, I don't want to try and convince you to buy more than you can afford, as we're even going to be cutting it close on that $32,420, I just see it as a once in 10+ years opportunity. Also, I've noticed my priorities changed after getting married and planning to start a family in the future.

I like option 3 minus moonroof personally.

Gets you pretty close to option 2 in price.

I thought I had to have a moonroof on my last car and then realized I never open it. Either too loud, or not the right temp. And it's one more thing to leak and less headroom.

But all that said, if you know you'll use it and it's important, not too much money for a car you'll hopefully have 8+ years

We are retired and visit my son frequently which requires a 13 hour drive. We chose the hybrid engine for the excellent fuel economy. The XLT model had most of the options we like but once my wife saw the heated seats, steering wheel etc. she really wanted these items too. So the luxury option without the sunroof and slider was deleted to save for a aftermarket hard trifold bed cover. We chose the 360 option for our safety during the long drives. Choosing a color was between Oxford white and Hot pepper red. We already have a white car in the garage that we love but having both vehicles the same just tipped us over to the red. We are really looking forward to driving our new Maverick!

The ONLY reason i ordered Co-Pilot is due to getting the rear traffic monitoring! I have this in my current Kia NiroEx and I LOVED it from day one when i bought he car 4 yrs ago….wow! what a difference it makes and yet i never thot it would be something i’d use. It’s indeed a great safety feature….glad it came with my car. I didnt care for blind spot monitoring, however. after the first two weeks i disengaged it and havent used since. I have NO trouble using mirrors and looking over shoulders. It beeps even when one has plenty of time to change lanes.

XLT with luxury pkg is a good choice. I am a year or so away from retiring so I opted Oxford White Lariat Hybrid with co-pilot 360 and luxury pkg. Did not see a need for additional towing or awd. Mine came in right at $30,000. I did not want red, blue or orange. White works so good with all mods I may opt to do like some blacking out. I currently have a red truck, cannot wait to get rid of it. I suspect this will be the last brand new vehicle I buy, but you never know. Like your choice of the XLT ✅

I agree with that sentiment as well. I plan on keeping mine for a very long time, unless future Maverick hybrids are significantly better (and if my financial situation very improves). So I got the XLT with Co-Pilot and Luxury package. I also got options to protect the car such as hood-deflector, hood film, splash guards (Yes I had to remove the splash guards and cargo net due to late availability).

Most if the upgrades are worth it if you keep it a long time.

I originally wanted a an XLT with Lux group, FX4. AWD my first priority. After careful optioning out want I wanted, I decided I wanted the power rear window, interior lighting, accoustic windshield, and that extra bed cubbie! So don't throw out not ordering a Lariat with nothing else on it. YOU have to decide which items you really want. I didn't want to pay over 32k, and I got a lot of stuff. I follow alot of youtubers. I have seen two cases where the testers have said if you over 6'1'...the sunroof is a no go! You stated your a tall fellow. So keep that in mind. Hope this helps. If you want basic transpo... The XL is the way to go....but thatis what it is. You may want to get rid of it after two years. I'm an old guy now, I hate my company Chevrolet W/T Colorado, 2021. It's a horrible vehicle, in everyway. The A/C works for now. But it's horrible to get into, I loathe the bed! The steering feels like it is attached with rubber bands...horrible!

You should leave it running in a bad part of town - consider it a charitable contribution
