    Recent Rivian vids (ads) about offroad capabilities are astonishing

    I was just about to say this. I would predict that they are doing the classic automaker tactic of talking about your top end specs along with your lowest end price. Everybody does this, including Tesla. Ex. "0-60 in 2.9 Seconds, 14k lbs towing, starting at $39,900". But once you look into it you...

    F150 Powerboost Hybrid

    I agree that was somewhat interesting, but maybe a little gimmicky for most buyers. Laser etching the steel would be kind of fun though.

    We need pop top vendors

    I'm hoping sportsmobile will be on top of this. They do great work with pop-tops!

    F150 Powerboost Hybrid

    Them calling the setup a "generator" is misleading in my opinion. Actually it's just an inverter and the power comes from idling your engine. The inverter on the non-hybrid models is like 2 or 2.4kw. I have a 3kw inverter I put in my truck DIY for $300. It's the easiest install ever. You...

    F150 Powerboost Hybrid

    23mpg and a tiny 1.5kwh battery...eek. I also thought it was funny how to claimed they totally reworked the outside and not a single body panel was reused from the last generation. If that's true, why does it look like a carbon copy of the last one lol! How many millions did they spend on...

    Cameras on fender flares may confirm digital side mirrors

    I'm hopeful the final version will be mirrorless, or that they will be easily and legally removable. That being said, the cameras are also needed for autopilot, so they would be there regardless.

    The Cybertruck is NOT a "Pickup Truck". So what is it?

    Sandy Munro has said multiple times that the Cybertruck is not a pickup truck. At first, I disagreed and wondered why he would say this, but I'm realizing he's right. It's MUCH more than a pickup truck. Think about it. You've got the following: -Faster quarter-mile than a Dodge Hellcat, more...

    Would you rather have a 6th seat or 5 seats with more storage?

    I’m a big fan of their current design that sacrifices a bit of storage but gives you a 6th seat when you need it. I’m not a person that keeps a lot of junk in the center console anyway. The one on my truck is mostly empty. That being said, I also rarely have 6 people in car so I’d prefer the...

    Appleton area here! I’ve got a dual motor on order and my father has a tri motor reserved as well. Can’t wait to attend meet ups! Glad other people are buying the cybertruck in the fox valley.

    Cybertruck towing additions needed - towing eyes and winch

    When this person shows the front, I’m fairly certain there are two tow hooks. It could be something else, but it sure looks like tow hooks. Also the opening in the bumper looks promising for a winch line. I think if it’s not a factory option, aftermarket companies will have a solution very quickly.

    If you could request three factory add-ons, what would they be?

    1. Full-size spare 2. Midgate 3. Smart Summon mode that backs it up to a trailer for you while you are outside the truck.

    Cybertruck is the best family car you can buy. Will it be your family vehicle?

    At this point what can this thing NOT do? For the average person, the only use case I see it failing at is tight city driving where a compact car is really the most practical option. But not everybody lives in a city. I have no issues parking my F250 in my area, and it’s actually larger than the...

    My Plan to Net a $99 Per Month Payment on a Cybertruck

    It's possible people wouldn't want to turo it with the advertisement on it. Or maybe you would just have to reduce the rate? Either way, I think my numbers for both turo and advertisement are really conservative, so it could potentially work out with either strategy.
