Ford Ranger ute baby brother named Maverick – report

The Ford Ranger pick-up's smaller ute sibling in the US is expected to be called Maverick – the name of a Ford compact car sold in the US in the 1970s, and the badge given to the Ford version of the Nissan Patrol Y60 sold in Australia between 1988 and 1994. YouTube channel The Fast Lane Truck claims the above image of a tailgate reveals the Maverick name, with space for Ford's famous blue oval badge.
