It's Superman and Clark Kent. :ROFLMAO:

The Truck of Steel, and a mild-mannered pick-up truck.

I saw this Rivian on the road.
Looks like the rear tires are not 90 degrees to the pavement. :unsure:

Rivian tires not 90 degrees.jpg


fully lowered, esp the highway setting, the Rivian does get to negative camber

it’s part of why Rivian owners with lots of highway driving chew through tires

it’s also a common thing with vehicles with adaptive air suspension with both low and high settings

at some point, physics of suspension require negative camber when very low, and positive camber when really high

will be interesting to see if/how Tesla addresses this
not the best photos for making any hard observations, but this topic came to mind when ogling the DeLorean photos

An F150 is full sized. CT is not. Pic from another thread.

I see what you’re saying, but I also want to point out the placement of the front seat relative to the B-pillar. In the CT, the seat seems back a bit more than the front set of the ford. Maybe by as much as 4-5 inches.

I’m saying you’re wrong, just that looks can be deceiving.

I for one prefer a longer bed than a second row seat with excess space. As long as it's as roomy as an S class, it's fine by me.

That F150 second row picture looks cavernous. Waste of space, unless you're carrying 3 adults 6'3 and 300lbs each to the jobsite, with their metal lunch box in front of their legs.

But I doubt we will see the CT with fleets

That is a good point of reference, thanks. I did not realize the difference in interior space before this.
There's no evidence the space is different. You have two photos with different camera lenses from different angles with the trucks in unknown seating configurations other than 'it has a child seat in it'.
