One of the most interesting and appealing things about the Ford Maverick – aside from its bargain price tag and impressive efficiency – is the fact that it has an interior design that doesn’t look low rent. That’s a big deal in the automotive world, which features its fair share of cheap plastic and dull gray and black interior designs.

The relatively new all-electric pickup segment is quickly expanding, with the 2022 Ford F-150 Lighting recently joining the Rivian R1T and GMC Hummer EV on the market. Those trucks will soon be joined by the Tesla Cybertruck and Chevy Silverado EV, to name a couple, though the latter figures to be the F-150 Lighting’s most direct competitor.

Thieves made off with 13 F-150 Raptors and six Mustangs from Ford Motor Co. assembly plants in the Detroit area this month. A majority of the vehicles were later found damaged. The Raptors — a wider, more off-road-oriented version of Ford's top-selling F-Series pickup — were worth a total of...
DO YOU HAVE A LIST OF THE GUYS TO BEAT THIS YEAR? IT SEEMS TO CHANGE WEEKLY. “It depends on the track. There are certain tracks that I feel like we’re really good and there are certain ones I feel like we have a little bit of work to do. The same for others. There are teams that I see that are really good on the mile-and-a-halves and I’m like, ‘Gosh, how do they do that?’ And then some teams are good everywhere.
