In the interior of the Ford Maverick, you'll find something called FITS (Ford Integrated Tether System), which the designers reportedly pushed to have included in the final production models. FITS is essentially a specifically-shaped cavity molded into the rear center console and the underseat storage bins, and accessories that Ford sells can be slotted into these cavities:
The plan worked, and there's now a little ecosystem of FITS accessories. Etsy seller AkroHD offers these cargo storage dividers, a storage tray, a garbage can/drink holder, and a cup/bag purse holder:
RefinedTruck sells accessory mounts, a trash can with removable lid, a MagSafe charger holder, charging cable tie-down cleats and a grocery bag holder:
R3D Customs sells this insert that fits into a cubby in the dashboard…
…that can then serve as a FITS receiver for this smoker's tray, sized to hold a vape pen or a pack of cigarettes and a lighter:
The smoker's cubby can of course also be fit into the rear FITS receiver:
On Thingiverse, Jack Harvest has posted .stl files to print your own FITS-compatible Nintendo Switch holder in a ball socket mount, at two different heights:
While Ford designed the Maverick specifically for younger, DIY-minded, 3D-printer-friendly types, I'd be surprised if they don't start incorporating FITS into their other models. And other brands will presumably take note.
