Surprising for a company with high on its priorities is safety and injury reduction.
I have a CanAm 570 XT. At 76, I am not into wild rides, but the 570 has just the right balance of power and features to do what I want. Sure, a SxS with AC would be more comfortable, but it won't fit in the tight canyons I put the 570 through. Here, in Reno, Nevada, the east side of the valley has many ATV trails. Lots of great rides with little danger and easy access. But, even with the stock muffler, the 570 makes too much noise. I would appreciate the quiet of the CyberQuad. The deer and antelope will not scatter as I approach.

And Ford still owns the trademark for "Model E"..... NEXT!
Ford is headed for bankruptcy. Tesla can wait till then and buy the Model E name. Then the media will freak out if they have to use the SEXY nomenclature. They already do everything they can to avoid using S3XY.

and was unveiled during the Cybertruck announcement event in 2020, where it was used to show off the size of Cybertruck’s bed. Sponsored
Too bad the announcement was actually in 2019..... Ok I think I just died a little inside for knowing that.

Like you, if the price is right, I would love to add one in with my CT purchase. If this is an add-on, then I would assume the vault loading ramp must still be alive. :)
With tires like those couldn't the truck kneel a little a drop the tailgate a little beyond 90. Then crawl right in with instant torque control?

I'm certain it will have air bags! Maybe if only the suspension or the rider.

People need to stop suggesting or believing this.
Ford is not going anywhere

I’m a bit more optimistic than that. They are moving forward. Slowly.

Unfortunately they need to be screaming forward on EV. The latest move to adopt Tesla charging is a good step forward but not enough.

In spite of the progress we can see, they are still unfortunately headed toward bankruptcy. They’ll probably get bailed out at least once. Doesn’t mean they are completely dead.

Only two US automakers have avoided bankruptcy:
  1. Tesla
  2. Ford

Surprising and annoying... this is distraction with zero value and utility and not scalable due to extremely low volume potential. Let Polaris keep its business building toys :)
