Elon Please make it with the rear window rolls down and the back seat & front of the bed folds forward. this was it would give you more space to put cargo, more space to camp inside of the truck and also have the AC on in Hot nights or just Cruise down the Beach with the wind coming in the side windows and going out the back of the cab. That would be Awesome!!!

Probably the most asked for feature for the Cybertruck on this forum! The name most of us call that is a mid-gate. In addition to the great reasons you expressed. I also want it for wheel chair access. With the built in ramp, I'm hoping to put in tie down points for a wheel chair.

As I was driving today I noticed how noisy the tires are on different types of highway surfaces. I was wondering if anyone has already asked for, or if anyone from Tesla has mentioned, ACTIVE NOISE CANCELLATION? I bet those big CT Tires can really sing on the highway.

We need a fifth wheel mount to pull our horse trailer. Design it a hide away when not in use. Camera with auto trailer hook up assisted by the suspension movement. Club seating for autonomous , robotaxi & entertainment system options.

I'd like to be able to make custom user profiles where you can also set the drivetrain parameters and behavior. You could make a "Classic-Mode" profile where you can set the throttle to simulate coasting when you let your foot off and then re-gen to occur when you lightly apply the brakes (with the real brakes engaging as you press harder).
Then, you could use your imagination to make any kind of user defined "modes" to suit your mood. You could make a "Hoon-Mode" profile that would simulate the front axle to free wheel so you could do fish tails, slides and donuts like a real RWD truck.
Or, you could make a "Teen-Mode" so you could let your kid take the Cybertruck and reduce power. You could also set all safety warnings and reminders to "full".
Or, better yet, you could set "Dick-Mode" to disable all safety warnings and reminders and apply maximum aggressiveness to the drivetrain for those moments when you just feel like it.
But seriously, being able to tie the power split between the front and rear wheels to a custom profile would be super cool. Think "Mud-Mode", "Snow-Mode", "Sports Car-Mode", "Wade-Mode", etc.
You could also set other custom options tied into your custom mode also, like "Hunting-Mode" that would silence the PWS and turn off the daytime running lights, dome lights, etc so you can sneak through the woods.

4 wheel steering on trucks helps with

1. turning into parking slot in parking lots with narrow lanes

2. turning right on intersections with tight corners and narrow lanes

3. towing at high-speed and lane change

4. low speed towing forward and turns

5. low speed towing backing up and turning


Want extra cost option on Cybertruck

1. support 5th wheel ( removable sail panels or version with no sails)

2. 4-wheel steering


---------

Chevy's Quadrasteer: Four-wheel steering makes this rig ideal for tugging trailers.

GM Quadrasteer added an extra 2,300 lbs towing capacity

Cab lights please. Maybe built into that light bar above the windshield. Have the option to run that bar it as a light bar or as amber cab lights.

Excellent suggestion! I would love to have the option off a dual function light bar as well. An LED strip for for off-road driving and LED amber cab lights when driving on the street.

I would like to see the return of a GM option that was available on the old Monte Carlo. A drivers seat that swivels for easy entry and exit with the air suspension fully lowered.

Maybe this is where GM Hummer rear steering comes from
