For perspective: I use my truck mostly for going to mountain bike rides, working on trails, and working on my house. So...

* Room for 6 people and 6 bikes (with a rack) for road trips or shuttling.
* Stainless hardened steel means I don't need to worry about pin striping on skinny mountain roads.
* Air suspension means it's fast and relatively nimble most of the time but has 16" of clearance when I'm on forest roads and need to get over stuff.
* We are never buying a ICE vehicle.
* Tesla's integration and vehicle automation is A+

1. It's a big middle finger driving down the road.

2. Style

3. Speed

That's it
In regards to #1.

Actually I have been playing with the old Reddy Kilowatt graphic from long ago and you know with a little modification on the raised LH and adding an extra knuckle in the right place the desired image can be obtained. All that is needed then one can add a short text to Exxon or Big Oil...... and ask them politely what to do "with it".

1. Reliability… None of the traditional things to break (No tune ups, radiator leaks, transmission problems, rough engine / exhaust, etc.0

2. The Vault with retractable / lockable cover. I HATE the cheesy roll ups on my F-150.

3. Stainless steel body. No paint, no clear coat to wax or get scratched.

4. Autopilot / potential self driving subscription. This is HUGE. I want a truck that can not only anticipate hazards, but take control when I make a mistake.

5. Bye bye gas stations. There are charging stations everywhere… and many of them are free because they bring customers to their stores / restaurants.

It’s hard to stop at 5… BONUS #6

Pull out RAMPS for the truck bed. Lifting boxes, bikes or a 26” snow blower into my F-150 is a real pain in the neck.

That's a great list, reliability has really changed over the years. I just got back from a 2,400-mile vacation. When we were over 1000 miles from home in our 2005 E250. I was really thankful that it only has 78,000 miles on it, and it has NEVER given us any problems at all. The CT is replacing this van and the benefits you list, are very accurate. One additional thing is cost of ownership. My E-250 fuel cost alone was $748.12. After this trip and before our next one, there will be maintenance. I'm really looking forward to getting delivery of my CT. I reserved the night of the reveal, and I'm still around 38,000 on the list.
Edit: We did stop by Tesla Fremont. We asked and they said they didn't have any Cybertrucks there. Can't hurt to ask. Here's a photo of our Ford van parked at Tesla Fremont.

My big problem was limiting it to 5.

The vault is pretty huge for me but wasn't in my top 5.

The truck being able to kneel down to access the bed? Hell yes that's rad.

5 is just too few ;)

A 6th. Having to wait long enough for even a early order will enable me to pay cold cash!
