Name that SUV!

What should Ford name the new small Rugged Utility it announced at today's "Uncovered" event?

Just brainstorming for fun of course, trying to come up with an allusion to a rugged lifestyle. I know they tend to be very brief, ideally 1-sylable.

Re: Name that SUV!

I was thinking something with E as with other Ford SUVs but doesn't really have to start with E since there's the Bronco after all coming. I do like the idea of Maverick and have no problems with that name. Even if it was a Ford car back in the 1970s that I keep thinking of when I hear the name. But yeah sure that name sounds good.

This is perfect. Rugged, easy to remember and for some people, nostalgic.

I like that logo. Where was it from? I had previously said I had no problem with Maverick name being used for this 'baby Bronco'. Well I just now did a quick look in Google and found that there actually was a Maverick SUV sold in Europe from 2001 to 2005 which was based on the 1st generation American Escape! Many people here and BON mention the red 'baby Bronco' in the pic resembled the old 1st gen Escape so now I know why many are suggesting the Maverick name. I now think it should be called that as it's been done before. Look at Mercury Cougar, for example. It went from the Mercury 'Mustang' to pretty much the Mercury sub-brand of the 'Ford LTD' to the 'poor man's Thunderbird' to eventually pretty-much the Mercury-badged Probe. If Cougar name can be applied to those cars with somewhat success, why not Maverick? Ford isn't going to bring back the car similar to old one in the 60s and 70s so yeah let's call it this 'baby Bronco' the Maverick.

Re: Name that SUV!

I agree that Maverick is perfect but I wouldn't be surprised if this product was called "Everest" in the US since it fits the naming scheme and the existing Everest isn't available in this market.
