To me, less rake makes the Cybertruck more sleek-looking, it seems to suit it, makes it a little sleeker and more sporty. (It might even make it a little more aerodynamic!) Anyway, if you like the rake, you just have to raise the rear suspension a little to give it the look you want! As long as they keep the bed length 6.5' I'm fine with losing a little in the cab. There's enough spare room in the cab to lose a SMALL amount of legroom, say 1" for the front seats and 1" for the rear.

I’m one of the people with a garage that is exactly 232” so a 7” shrinkage means the difference between parking inside, or knocking out a wall to expand the garage, or parking outside.
My little Ranger lives outside, but things get a lot more complicated when I’m trying to install a charger outdoors and also keep a battery warm in the winter.

From what I understand, the standard sized for a garage in the U.S. is 240," so it would be in the best interest of the customers and the manufacturer's to build a vehicle that will fit into a standard sized garage. The customers get a vehicle that meets their needs and the manufacturer sells what the customers want; win - win situation.

You are right about standard size, but somebody else brought up in another thread that 240” is outside dimension, and many are closer to 230” because of wall thickness. Hence the need for a slight shrinkage...

Yeah, I've got a Gen 1 Tundra that's 216" long and it's a pretty tight fit. I checked the fit with the original Cybertruck length of 231" and it would BARELY be workable, so losing about 6" in length will definitely help! I just hope they leave the bed/vault length at 6.5'!

as far as fitting this into a garage... I like the way the Jesse at Now You Now said it: do you need a house for your house?
I get it though. It would be nice to charge it indoors.

That said, I don't think I've ever seen a big mega cab (dodge/ford/chevy) pickup EVER parked in a standard residential garage.

My garage is pretty much exactly 240" door to wall. But there is a safety post (to prevent vehicles from hitting the furnace and water heater) planted right at about 232". If the truck is indeed 225" then it will allow me to keep the post in place. If not I will have to cut it off and hope nobody crashes into the furnace and water heater.

I hope he actually post some new information this week about the changes, ground clearance ect...
at this point I am OK with update anytime before Ford ask me to pull the trigger. By then GM may have it’s own reveal.

As far as shrinkage, I am for it as long as it does not come out of bed size.
