There is conspiracy afoot. Why does the truck appear at minute 4:20?

The front light configuration give off a faux traditional truck appearance. Wiper will be extremely annoying if blocking line of sight in the rest position. More accepting if hidden inside the cabin but still hideous outside. If the intention is to cut down drag, I prefer clean line of sight in the driver’s seat.

my humble thoughts:

(1) is it me, or does the bed look shorter as does the front
(2) a big ass wiper......as said earlier, may block some vision
(3) ugly side-view mirrors.......I guess they gave up on them being inside
(4) truly different then on reveal night

these somewhat new changes have put a small damper on my imagination of what it would look like......I guess it like when you see something for the first time, you never forget it and any change is a drastic one

we still have many months before first one rolls off the line, but hopefully we will get an official version of final design in the not to distant future
I think the bed tucks under a bit. Still technically 6’5” I bet, but with nearly a foot of overhang. It’ll make moving refrigerators interesting.

Awesome!
My thoughts...
-Like the curved windscreen
-Like the rims, hope those stay!
-That wiper is....something
* The blue tape looks like it might actually be to hold a wire to control the wiper based in the path of it and the little strips. This leads me to believe that this may not be final or is a temporary or test solution
-The shape of the sail piece on the sides of the bed have an interesting shape when looking from the top. Narrow near the cab, wider near the tailgate. Not sure if that may have changed or not.

We are getting closer!!

From the original design they might adjust some of the proportion geometry to make it more efficient and to comply with general rules

Anyone else think this rear glass is too dark to be tint? Almost like its... solar cells.

Perhaps, It has got to be far cheaper to manufacture than on the rolling bed cover as well a more durable location design. Overall area of coverage would appear to be about the same vs the tonneau.

How deep is your fridge?
Not a matter of depth. Just the fact that in a normal truck the fridge is flush with the truck bed wall which helps stabilize it a bit. With this, the fridge will be sort of floating in the middle of the bed with only one contact point where the roof touches it.

Not a huge deal, just a bit awkward.
