Really cool truck. I love it. Would I drive one daily? No.
First I live in Ohio so it would be rusted in no time and it deserves better care than that. But it would be a fun cruiser.
Small FWD trucks here have all failed. Nothing has done very well. The Ridgeline is about the best there has been but sales numbers are very poor.
With a shared platform the Maverick can live with lower numbers. I expect good initial numbers but once they settle will enough CUV owner move over?
The mini truck is in a class of its own. It is a cool example of a vehicle of another era and culture. It deserves to be treated well.
