2023-2024 Bronco Sport & 2024 Maverick Now Supported!

24 Ford Maverick

Today we are extending  the availability of tuning support for the 2.0L EcoBoost powered variants (both FWD and AWD) of Ford’s 2024 Maverick pick-up as well as the 2023-2024 Bronco Sport Badlands.  These little trucks have crushed it in popularity, selling out multiple production runs.  The current wait time for new orders is allegedly still at or above 12 months.  Their unibody configuration means the driving feel is actually relatively car-like.  Couple that with the available all wheel drive and 2.0L EcoBoost power plant and you arrive at a recipe that is ripe for an enthusiast’s “do everything” vehicle.  The 2023-2024 Bronco Sport and Maverick EcoBoost is now supported by the 50-State Legal COBB Accessport and Accesstuner Pro custom tuning software.

The Accessport

The Accessport is the world’s best selling, most flexible, and easiest to use ECU tuning solution for your Ford Maverick and Bronco Sport Badlands.  Both Engine and Transmission tuning is handled within one control module.  It allows you to increase power by replacing conservative factory settings with more aggressive calibrations, and more!  The Accessport is in-cabin mountable and has a large, full color, high-resolution screen which allows you to monitor up to six parameters in real time.  It is fully customizable from the look (optional bezel colors), layout (set up race, street, or dyno gauge clusters), and mounting options (choose from 1,000s of standard vehicle mounts).  One benefit of this is that the Accessport only needs to install onto one module instead of two, making installation time much quicker. This also means is that map selection during install may be a bit different from what some of our customers are used to seeing.  Each ECU Performance map is able to be flashed in conjunction with any of the available TCM maps. Both Engine and Transmission tuning are supported in one part number, the AP3-FOR-009.

The Accessport and included COBB Off The Shelf Maps are legal to be used in all 50 states as they are covered by C.A.R.B. EO D-660-196.

The ECU Maps below are available in multiple flavors, for 91 and 93 octane fuel and with varying combinations of transmission (TCM) tuning.

    1. Stage1 91 OCT or 95 RON – COBB OEM+ TCM
    2. Stage1 91 OCT or 95 RON – COBB Sport TCM

  1. Stage1 91 OCT or 95 RON – Simulated Stock TCM

  2. Stage1 93 OCT or 98 RON – COBB OEM+ TCM

  3. Stage1 93 OCT or 98 RON – COBB Sport TCM

  4. Stage1 93 OCT or 98 RON – Simulated Stock TCM

Power Gains & Transmission Tuning

Stage 1 gains on the Maverick’s 2.0L EcoBoost are significant across the board using both 91 and 93 octane fuel.  As you can see in the chart above, those using 93 octane and the corresponding file will enjoy an additional ~10 HP and 15 TQ to the wheels when compared to the 91 octane gains.

COBB OEM+

  • Shift Points

    • Moderately increased RPM limits on upshifts

    • Altered shift behavior for more responsive downshifts

  • Shift Firmness

    • Moderately increased during high power/RPM shifts in Normal and Sport mode

  • Upshift Backout

    • Upshift inhibit (zero Accelerator pedal position gear-holding) in ‘Sport’ mode following high-power acceleration and throttle backout has been disabled. Stock behavior would inhibit upshift until pedal position is re-applied above ~10%.

  • Torque Limits

    • Increased torque limits for more aggressive launches and acceleration

COBB Sport

  • Shift Points
    • Moderately increased RPM limits on upshifts over OEM+ map
    • Altered shift behavior for even more responsive downshifts over OEM+ map

  • Shift Firmness

    • Moderately increased during high power/RPM shifts in Normal and Sport mode

  • Upshift Backout

    • upshift inhibit (zero Accelerator pedal position gear-holding) in ‘Sport’ mode following high-power acceleration and throttle backout has been disabled. Stock behavior would inhibit upshift until pedal position is re-applied above ~10%.

  • Torque Limits

    • Increased torque limits for more aggressive launches and acceleration

 

COBB Custom Features

COBB Custom Features: Dynamic Pedal Control

  • Dynamic Pedal Control allows you to quickly adjust throttle pedal sensitivity easily.  The system works by modulating from the throttle mapping found in your current drive mode (i.e. Drive/Normal, Mud/Sand, Sport) and some predetermined maximum and minimum sensitivity levels.  Each step negative (-1 – -5) decreases throttle sensitivity which can help achieve better mpg, or a quick detune if someone less responsible is driving.  When stepping positive (1-10) you’ll be making smaller pedal movements have a much bigger impact on the throttle which can help the car feel faster and more responsive.

COBB Custom Features: Tire Size Adjustment

  • Tire Sized Adjustment does just what it seems it would.  This feature allows those with up-sized tires to apply a correction to the truck’s ECU and TCM to ensure accurate behavior and speed display.

COBB Custom Features : Auto Start/Stop Configuration

  • This feature allows users to select their preferred functionality of the factory Auto Start/Stop setting, either enabled or disabled.

COBB Custom Features : Valet Mode

  • Set the maximum allowable throttle input as well as decrease the sensitivity of the thottle pedal by enabling Valet Mode.

Stage 1 Power Package

Our Stage 1 Power Package for the Ford Maverick EcoBoost and Bronco Sport Badlands consists of the Accessport and our reusable high flow filter. COBB High Flow Filters are designed to permit very high flow rates, minimize restriction, maximize filtration and provide a long life filter. It uses proprietary woven cotton and metal mesh with a precision molded rubber base.  The filter is compatible with pre-loaded COBB Off The Shelf Maps.

  1. I am thrilled that you have extended support. I used an AccessPort for my 2016 Focus ST for years. Loved it. Are you planning on adding In support for the 2022 Ranger Tremor 2.3 turbo setup? I don’t want to use SCT. I would rather use an AP. Thanks, Scott Wood

    • Hey Scott, glad to hear you loved the Accessport on your Focus ST! Unfortunately, we do not currently have plans to offer an Accessport for the 2.3L EcoBoost Rangers. Sorry!

  2. Hello, Marshall
    I am exited to now 2024 MAVERICK now supported.
    I have 2024 Maverick F4X – 2.0L EcoBoost and F4X doest not have sports model, I hope get most out performance via Stage1-93, only concern is I never tried flashing ECU before, so I am wonder if I can install properly all by myself, or should I go to your dealer which will be more safe?
    By the way I am at New York city.
    looking for your suggestions.
