From the looks of things, Cyber Orange, shared with the Bronco, will be taking a hike. So will Cactus Gray, Carboized Gray, Hot Pepper Red, Velocity Blue, and Shadow Black. Frankly, that’s a good chunk of the good colors on the Maverick. And there’s only one reason Ford would ax them: poor sales. The Hot Pepper Red we had on our loaner was particularly attractive. We’ll also miss Cyber Orange, one of Ford’s better colors.
Also Blue, Area 51, Oxford White, and Iconic Silver will all be carried over from the 2022 model year. Notably, that leaves the new lineup without any reds. Which is unfortunate. However, we do expect Ford to keep something red in the lineup. We hope. Here’s the full run of 2023 Maverick colors: Oxford White, Absolute Black, Fighter Jet Grey, Atlas Blue Pearl Metallic, Area 51, Avalanche, Iconiic Silver Metallic, and Alto Blue Pearl.
That’s a good spread, but no red is a downer when you consider the price jump. 2023 Mavs will cost you an extra $1,000, and having fewer colors to choose from (some of which are optional) doesn’t help that sting any less.
