Think Nissan will make a small pk up I love my 2017 desert runner but I would have got the smaller truck
I don’t know or notice any women who drive a pickup truck where I’m from. Maybe it’s a regional thing.I think that the Maverick is going to be such a huge hit for Ford, most other brands (including Nissan) are going to have no choice but to introduce something similar.
That market niche is going to be as popular as small SUVs are right now - and the same young women who are currently driving CR-Vs, RAVs and Rogues are going to be it's biggest customer base.
My wife told me what was a BIG factor with getting the Frontier was easy to drive, easy to see over the dash when driving, and the biggest was she can reach over the side of the bed.I don’t know or notice any women who drive a pickup truck where I’m from. Maybe it’s a regional thing.
Before the small SUV market existed, you rarely saw women driving SUVs, either.I don’t know or notice any women who drive a pickup truck where I’m from. Maybe it’s a regional thing.
Have you actually looked at a Maverick in person? Interior is similar in size to the Frontier and the bed is surprisingly deep. Unless you are pulling big trailers or driving over rocks, these smaller trucks 100% fit a niche.The Maverick is borderline too small. At the point you get left with front wheel drive and a 4 foot bed you have to start asking yourself, "Do I really need a pickup?"
An suv is a modern station wagon.Before the small SUV market existed, you rarely saw women driving SUVs, either.
Nowadays, probably 95% of all CRV, RAV or Rogue owners are women.
The Maverick has just about all the advantages of a small SUV (easy-to-handle size, good fuel economy, affordable price tag) - plus a truck bed.
