When Ford re-introduced the Ranger people wanted Ford to offer a Raptor version of it. Now that Ford has released the photos and specs of the Maverick, people are again dreaming up ideas of a Maverick Raptor.
Personally I don't think the Maverick offers the elements needed to be worthy of a Raptor nameplate.
However, Ford has filed to trademark the name 'Rattler'. That could be a cool name for an off-road truck.
But then if you really think about it, snakes slither close to the ground and can move fast. The Cobra, which is also a snake, has been used by Ford on their performance vehicles. Maybe the Rattler will be a performance version of the Maverick.
Given its design, I think a performance version of the Maverick with a Rattler nameplate makes more sense.
