So I am going with the bare bones XL and can't decide on what color.

I'm debating between the Area 51, Cactus Grey, and Carbonized grey. I love the silver but that's what I get in every car.

What are you guys getting and why??

I'm not a huge fan of the tail lights on the Maverick, as they look slightly oversized, even from the side profile. But in red, they blend in and disappear.
441

I bet the aftermarket will come up with some cool LED tube style clear tail lights for the Maverick, which would look great on a white Maverick.

I like the Cyber Orange but I’m not a fan of the XLT interior so I’ll probably get one the grays/silver in the XL.

LOL. Sorry if I offended you. I didn't mean too.
I was just teasin. ;) As long as you don't go with a soft pink or rainbow colors, I don't think anyone is going to question your masculinity in any of the rather neutral shades available.

Consider though that the XLT actually has a lot of orange inside, making an orange exterior a nice match. Also the Lariat if you avoid adding on luxury or first addition packages is actually not that expensive for all you get, and it affects appearance too like the DRL LEDs above the headlights and of course nice wheels over steelies.

The Lariat interior being a more neutral brown could affect color matching too though, will have to see how it pairs with the red as seen below.

Its a shame they don't offer my ideal combo, which would be a matching dirt/earth tone brown for the exterior with a white roof. They did that with the Chevy Trailblazer Activ and I thought it was sweet.

Same here. Which Grey are you leaning toward? I'm still up in the air but I'm leaning toward Cactus Grey and Carbonized Grey.


Can someone explain to me what color Area 51 is lol.

Right now Iconic Silver. I parked next to a F150 that color the other day and I really liked it. My current car is silver and I have black wheels and it looks sharp. I’d like to see them in person to decide though.

I'm leaning towards Cactus Grey with the black 17" Fx4 Wheel and tire setup for an XLT. The Alto Blue also catches my eye, not sure about the Velocity Blue. I don't mind the orange interior accents except for that large center cubby. That much orange almost feels blinding to me.

Speaking of interior colors, I'm wondering how blue the blue plastics inside are. That might make a shade of blue a better interior/exterior match, if people are wanting to coordinate those.
