Default New small pickup from Ford

Looks like Ford is getting back in the small pickup market. Saw an article that Ford is getting ready to produce the Maverick, a throw back to the small pickup of the 80's. Sounds like a good idea to me.

So many roads this thread can go... let's keep it clean.

There was another thread where names for manuf were discussed.
I still like "Fifteenth on Race Day".

Looked up some stuff on it. Appear it'll be IRS. Basically a minivan with a bed. That's all most folks need. Most with big ol F350s and such prance around and never actually use the truck for truck stuff.

I'd bet it won't have a "full size" bed and not even qualify for being a "truck" IMO. The leaked pictures show it's not even that small.

Never heard of a Ford truck ever being called Maverick. Ford Ranger, Ford Courier, F150, F100. The Maverick was a 70's econo box car.

I'm guessing cute ute/fwd underpinnings, with a small bed. Meh.

Maverick is an American Western dramatic television series with comedic overtones created by Roy Huggins and originally starring James Garner.

The show ran for five seasons from September 22, 1957, to July 8, 1962, on ABC.
