Yes, I am sure you and other readers here understand.You’re preaching to the choir here, of course. I was just saying that the one feature that seemed nice was the frunk, not that I think it is better. I agree with your synopsis.
The drain and outlets are nice features and I hope Cybertruck has them too.
A bigger frunk is OK up to to a point. The Ford PU having a bigger frunk than the Cybertruck is OK too.
The problem is having it so so so big and boxy.
Ford made NO significant attempt at aero at all.
2019 Ram 1500 Quad Cab 4x2 has Cd of 0.357.
Ford had a chance to educate the buying public and Ford passed.
But this is brick wall frunk is not a harmless decoration. There is a reason the Cybertruck has an aero shape. If the brick wall frunk was driven around town at 15-30 mph in stop & go city type driving the effect would be minimal.
But these trucks are going to be doing serious highway miles at 70-75 mph. At those speeds aero effects are significant.
The people who consider buying this Ford PU should be informed of what the hidden cost will be. Maybe it is not worth it to them. Since a significant of our electricity still comes from fossil fuels it also affect everybody.
There should be a measurable difference.
$1,000s of real $ are going to be wasted.
These super high hoods/frunks are also a safety issue. Driver can not see small people or low objects directly in front of them. People are being injured.
I am hoping we can calculate some reasonable numbers for comparison.
