The automobile has a complete of eight FITS slots: one behind the middle console the place a cupholder often goes in lots of automobiles and 7 below the rear seat bench.

The fortunate ones who purchased the compact truck early (now it is broadly offered) acquired artistic with slots, designing and 3D-printing them and promoting their very own FITS equipment like a canine water bowl and a vape holder. stored for.
When you have a 3D printer, some design data, and a 2022 Ford Maverick, you’ll be able to try Ford’s FITS 3D-printing web page for the information. Simply ensure you’re not utilizing PLA filament, as I personally came upon the exhausting approach and ended up with a warped accent bin after I left my automobile within the solar.
And hey, if it bothers you that Ford simply does not embrace these rear heart console cupholders as commonplace within the Maverick, do not forget that the XLT and Lariat trims nonetheless have pull-out armrest cupholders and door cubbies too. Huh. And be grateful that it isn’t as unhealthy as Tesla promoting a $150 rear cupholder strip for the preliminary Mannequin S launch.
