I though Ford hit a hone run with this vehicle and I am a GM guy mad GM has failed this segment.
But Ford has only hit a triple with the major roof issues now going on. They have delayed orders and have thousands of Broncos ready to ship with bad tops.
Ford really needs a home run after the Aluminum F series killed their profits on the truck. A mistake like this is a really bad start to a new model.
The Maverick is less a risk but we have yet to see what the market thinks. There will be a surge at first but in 2-3 years will it decline like the Ridgeline did?
The CUV platform it is on was cheap to source as it is used for a number of models vs the Ranger just two. But FWD trucks have a long history of failure. Also expect a price increase next year the low ball price was just for intro.
