      The maverick isn't a 4x4. Just as capable offroad as most crossovers.

      Modern intelligent AWD systems are extremely capable off-road and that of the Maverick is especially good. You guys don't really know what you're talking about. Technology has advanced a long way since the last time you read up on this subject.

      I would want to upgrade the suspension before taking the Maverick on washboard, and the stock ride height is pretty low, but I guarantee you that traction will NEVER be an issue.

        It's probably great on snowy or icy roads. But offroad? Let's not kid ourselves.

          This will eventually destroy your clutch packs. The AWD system in these is designed to get grandma up her snowy driveway, not for actual trail use. That's just being stupid and using the wrong tool for the job for no reason.

          OK moron go get stuck, not my problem

          This seems extremely abusive to the awd system and transmission. A transfer case and a locked rear diff would be a better system that is much easier on the rig.

          Source: your ass. These are designed to go off-road and people do it. "Unibody" is the funniest cope of all.

            Unibody has nothing to do with it. It's a fricking Escape with the back missing. That sort of drivetrain is NOT designed for any serous "off-roading" despite what the sticker on the bed tells you.

          Not true at all, it uses a novel system with 3 computer controlled clutches to distribute torque to the rear wheels. It can simulate a locked rear diff while still allowing the inner wheel to turn slower in a turn and being much more efficient than a differential. It doesn't use brakes on the wheels to distribute torque.

        It'll do just fine on a maintained service road. Maybe some logging roads but you'd want to be careful since some are not maintained and wash out. Before I got my truck I would take my legacy wagon on them and sometimes it would drag the belly on some of the washed out ones.

    I thought about one and even test drove, but I realized that by the time I had one optioned up it was the same price as a lightly used Ranger XLT FX4 while being much less capable and not that much easier to drive or more economical, so I just went with the Ranger instead.

    Just buy a side by side or an ATV and put it on a trailer and tow it all with an old used body on frame pickup. Any of them are infinitely more capable than that urban cucktruck. You can fly over shit with a quad at 45 mph that would break that piece of shit at 5 mph.
    You can go down any fricked up random rocky and rutted road or trail you want, and turn around anywhere, without drama, without getting stuck. Things that would be an ordeal in that thing would be painless and fun. Scratch it up? Who cares? Big nasty steep hill? Go for it! A lot of them even come with a winch already installed.
    All of this is assuming you’re too much of a sissy for a dirtbike
    The northwest is a great place for off road adventures but a fricking Maverick is about the worst way to do it. You’re better off with a Subaru than that thing

      If you're considering a Maverick Tremor why not a Bronco Sport Badlands? They're also very capable for what they are and you could sleep in it.

          Not the Tremor, which only does 2k like the Bronco. One thing it does have going for it is price though, a Mav XLT Tremor is like $5k less than a Bronco Sport Badlands with the same drivetrain.

          Why Badlands over Everglade, Wildtrak, or even Raptor?

          Wrong Bronco, those are all trims for the "big" one.

            My bet is that there are actual technical reasons for it, probably that the trick clutch-based rear end can't handle the extra load but it could also be that the chassis can't handle the tongue weight with the lifted suspension.

            IMO if you need both the off road capability and the ability to tow you're way better off just getting a Ranger. As I said earlier in the thread I seriously considered a Maverick when it came out and even went to test drive one, but the spec I would've wanted was almost 35k and I got a two year old Ranger for 31k instead, and got a vehicle with real 4WD and a locker, 7,500lb of tow capacity, a bigger bed, none of the fees or dealer frickery that come with new cars, and the worst of the depreciation curve already gone.

      The Maverick is none of these. By the time you spec it with AWD and the necessary features it's priced inline with a Ranger or a F-150. There's also the fuel economy. As soon as you add a "off road" package with AT's you're going to be doing the same as a V8 half ton.

    Got a Maverick right when it came out, I loved it and would still have it but I needed something a little bit bigger to tow a tractor so I recently traded for an F-150 again almost strictly for heavier towing. It was a great vehicle though, super manueverable and still a little powerhouse

      Fair take. I think also, the F-150 sells so much that there are just 100,000's of thousands of them every year. So if you look hard enough, you can usually find a decent deal on a used one. Just because there are so many. One of your neighbors is probably trying to sell one right now.

    The maverick hybrid seems to be the perfect truck if you don't pull anything. The I need 10 bags of cement over the weekend but I get 40mpg riding to work. That said the price keeps going up and you are better off getting a Tacoma. Though the Toyota prices are going up even faster.

          Yeah, of course. I thought that was assumed. You can put winter tires on anything and it helps a lot. BUT, when you're in the middle of a storm AWD and ground clearance help a lot. Doesn't have to be crazy, just more than a Civic or something. Not saying you can't drive a Civic in the snow, but it's not as smooth.

            Civics are amazing in snow with good tires, unless if it's 2'+ of fresh powder snow drifting into dunes, they are light enough to cut through and stay on top of shit easily.
            You can't have fun drifting the empty parking lots with the subarus but they perform admirably and I deal with it just fine every year.

        I do, and I pass every single person with a full sized truck/SUV and chunky mud tires or studs doing a maximum of 45-50 in the winter on a FWD street car with studless winter tires.
        Same thing goes with gravel/dirt back roads. Subies and Trucks for days driving at 35 mph and I'm out there driving at highway speeds casually on the same studless toyo tires that only really give me shit performance on wet roads but it doesn't rain much here, just dry as frick or winter snow/ice.
