    My dad, may he rest in peace, and me wanted to get a Maverick, it has its faults but it’s a great little truck for the price. I’d recommend the Turbo gas model with Tremor package, if you’re going camping with it, though… Or wait till next year when they finally give the hybrid model 4WD, along with some other new options…

    Rather high CG though at least works to be more aero. And not a chance of paying $16k for it. I’d go a trailer or rear tent with a much smaller aero camper.
    The future is something like the Canoo EV van/pickup where you get A/C, heat, etc power from the EV pack.

    I’m curious to know what kind of mileage this rig will get on the highway at about 65 mph. Thank you. I currently have a Scout on a 4 cylinder Tacoma and have been getting about 16 mi per gallon. I’m seriously contemplating the above rig but would hope to get at least 30 on the highway in order to make the change.

      Do you mean with or without the camper?

      If without, Mileage will vary, depending on driving conditions and how you drive but the Hybrid can get up to nearly 40 MPG and it may drop to around 30 if conditions are less than ideal. More of a drop if you’re towing or carrying a heavy load…

      Mind, this is their budget model, compact truck, but there are plenty of reviews to see all the pros and cons…
