Built a Maverick on the Ford site. Adding the B&O 8 speaker premium audio requires removing the drop-in bedliner :wtf:
Is there a subwoofer accessible through the bed or something?

No, it's just the stupid packages. I've watched reviews that the speakers themselves are okay- but the woofer isn't the best, and the rear speakers are up by the headrests- so really loud for rear passengers. (If you don't adjust fade)

Drop in bed liners suck anyways.  Spray in for sure.

My parents' came up to visit me for a few days before flying out of NYC.  Dad brought his new Maverick and I drove it locally for 15 minutes.  Base model with great blue/grey matte color.  He loves it. 

It's a perfect size for people who don't use their pickup truck for pickup truck things other than Home Depot or plant nursery runs.  Easily will fit into any garage but bigger than a midsize sedan.  Drives like a car.  Motor has a high pitched buzzy sound when starting from a stop but it wasn't that annoying.  Shifts smooth.  Interior is fine.  Hard plastics but that doesn't bother me. 

If I had to choose between the Maverick and a new 4 cylinder Camcord, I'd take the Maverick just because it looks so much cooler and it's novelty factor.  Plus more functional.

If I was in the market for a new car, I would want a Maverick hybrid. Can’t argue with the relative value. The little pickup bed would be handy. Amazing gas mileage.

Seriously, the more I look at it, the more I want one even though I have no reason to want one nor do i need one, not to mention no room for one either.

That's what I ordered. For a commuter car when the weather is not Scrappy friendly, lol.
