U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Trevor McKinnon decided to buy a new car slowly and then all at once.

In a matter of days, he had to call on his boyfriend’s parents to shuttle a water heater and he read a review of the Maverick, a pint-size pickup truck — the newest new thing from Ford Motor Co.

"I got on cars.com and saw that there was one Maverick for sale in all of Colorado Springs,” he recalled. "I drove over there and bought it that day.”
