The cost of advertising the typical vehicle in N. America is around $2,000. Guess who pays?

Hint: The money comes from somewhere! Do you have and want to spend $2K extra on every vehicle you buy just so you can be convinced that it's "worth it"?

I'll save you even more money: Cancel your reservation. That's right, the world will not end if you dont get a Cybertruck and you'll get your $100 back to spend on whatever DOES make you happy. It will leave more for those of us who want a truck like like this and shorten the wait by one.

Don't delay - Cancel Today. But wait! That's not all, if you cancel today you will get a box full of genuine Thank You cards from real reservation holders around the world, a $29.95 value, absolutely free!
I didn’t pay $2000 when Elon typed no door handles presumably while sitting on his toilet bowl. Every single person in Tesla is smart enough to figure out how to get information to us at low to no cost. They just choose not to. Nothing about Tesla is average, the way they share info does not have to be typical either. Sorry, I still don’t buy it.

Your second advice may be a sound one. I will take it under consideration but not for your benefit. When I absolutely need a vehicle, if CT existence and delivery time is still an unknown to me, I will do just that. Until then, you will just have to live with my comments.

People that live in freezing climates know how to deal with freezing doors. One time I came back from a back-country ski tour and the doors to my vehicle were frozen solidly shut. It was a VW Golf (Rabbit). Handles don't do a lot of good if they are really frozen. After that I made sure to keep the seals well treated to resist water and the areas around the seals waxed. No more problems.

With a Cybertruck it will be even less of a problem because you can start the vehicle from outside and turn on the heat. I do this with my Model 3 all the time in winter conditions and I don't have to scrape my windshield anymore. The door seals are treated to resist freezing.

As with any vehicle it's simply a matter of maintaining your vehicle for the conditions it will encounter. Door handles don't prevent freezing. I've yanked on handles until I thought I was going to pull the handle right off the door and the frozen door wouldn't budge.
I am sure preventative maintenance is a proper way to ensure door or any cold weather conditions. I have moved to sunny Nevada where the sun is our nemesis. I had a Mitsubishi vehicle in not so hot or not so cold locatio and had to replace the plastic door handles too. I'm just saying no door handles are a plus in my opinion as less moving parts to fail.

Frankly, I've gotten kind of tired of seeing all these "Final Updates Revealed" videos popping up all over YouTube. They're nothing more than highly speculative opinions showing the same old Cybertruck clips from over a year or two ago. Not much more than clickbait, unfortunately.
What about this one? This CT sighting may have some clues to the new features in CT update:

i don’t like handless. reason is at some point, you car just become very hard to open, like a crash or freezing cold, and pulling a handle is just more reliable to win the game and save your loved ones from inside. As for the glass, it’s almost impossible to break out.

Handles are not 'reliable' to enter an electric vehicle after a collision.

If there's any damage to the cabin frame, the door will be crimped into its space and won't move.

If there's no damage to the cabin, then the vehicle likely still has power, in the case of an EV.
