With the faux door handles I am getting more of a Ridgeline feel.

Some interesting bits from Munro's video about it, as well as the BIW (BIB):
  • I hadn't noticed the removed casting laying on the ground in front of the truck on the left! - it may connect the L/R shock towers, or support the powertrain

  • dear god they get into [BLEEP BLEEP] again, but:
    • "we're looking at something that's not what I was hoping it would be; I was hoping to see a true example of a [BLEEP BLEEP]"
    • the BIW has no SS on it, and you could put in the driveline and drive it around
    • long discussion on how this BIW/BIB is the bulk of crashworthiness compliance
    • they do believe that in the rear, the SS will box out the bed and the SS skin will be structural
    • "the tie in between what we see and what we dont see is going to make a gigantic difference, it's going to be extremely rigid, no doubt about it"
    • "they went down the [BLEEP BLEEP] route and it didn't quite work out for them"

  • "we have 5 [CTs] on order and that several of them want to see them torn apart"
  • "[Munro] was expecting to see about 350mi out of this"
  • "limiting factor to build CT will be 4680, every Model Y they've seen in Berlin and Austin every single Model Y had the old packs - never once with own eyes saw a structural pack go in... they're like unicorns right now"
  • "10M 4680's equals about 10,000 vehicles... [but] a lot can happen in a month"
  • but will need about twice as many cells in a [CT]
  • "i believe the frunk will be the width of golfclubs, but much less deep for sure"
  • "to me this [frunk] will be enough to bring to the market place, but, I will tell you that a thing I like a *lot* about the F150 is the ability to get bags of sand or concrete out of that thing, that's a really big deal, i like that"
  • Munro: "I've said this a lot of times: I think the Rivian, the Lightning, and the Cybertruck are not competing for the same people. I think that the Lightning is a product that's made for construction workers. I think that [the CT] is made for the outdoors kind of guy that is going to be taking tents and what-not, he's going to go camping, and whatever with this. And the Rivian is probably the best, uhm, 'home truck,' if you like - I don't think I'd want to use it like an F150 or a Cybertruck"
  • Cory: "when we're out and about at expos, the most common thing I hear is I have a Model 3 but I'm waiting for my Cybertruck; I think they're not traditional truck buyers... Rivian has this thing with outdorsey branding, the capability of the Rivian I think will be way more than the Cybertruck."
  • Munro "the Rivian is by far the best offroad vehicle I've ever had" and he's interested to test the CT in this respect

The Cybertruck tear down is going to epic. I predict it will be their highest viewed video series to date.
a contributing factor to high views, I will be watching the video many times

At least we know how Tesla won the tug of war between the CT and F150

Done with mirrors and vinyl wrap.
that was ICE F150, not the F150 Lightning.

I do think it's important to mention in the traditional truck buyers thing that he says a bunch of non Tesla EV owners are chomping at the bit for the CT

tbh, Sandy seemed sort of ... confused

my inner empath feels that Cory was holding onto his arm rests wondering what Sandy was going to say next

that's why i suppress my inner empath

also, i liked how Cory described that the F150 actually has as minimal a 'nose' ;) but that other 1/2 truck manus have more
