What about playing the long game... Is there a 4wd pickup truck you'd like to have for yourself in 3 to 4 years?  Buy it now and in 3-4 years you'll actually be driving it.

I was thinking Maverick XLT AWD, honestly. Isn't it just a reskinned Escape?

Maverick does share chassis with Escape as well as Bronco Sport. Great choice if you can actually get you hands on one this year.

Ford is accepting no more orders for the hybrid (least expensive) version for this model year.

Man there's just not a lot of new cars available right now. Yeah, shocking. So I think my most likely path is gonna be a CPO 2018-ish Escape.

You're traveling north up I-75 to get AK1. Are small town dealers sitting on any inventory?

I'm gonna try my luck locally between Christmas and New Years. Probably trade in the Sube, unless it blows up on the way.

Hyundai Elantra N-line. Heated seats standard.  Way better than a Buick. Why punish yourself. Don't be a cheap.  Get something you'll enjoy at least a little.
