    Pay attention, the engine noise comes from the speakers. Lol.

    I don't know, I think the truck is pretty rad.

    The price is great. This may go to the top of the list for next vehicle.

    Trucks.

    ^ the 200mile range on Bollingerís B1 and B2 is a deal killer for my use.

    Add me to the list of those who actually like the Cybertruck.

    I don't like it but I get it and it will probably sell ok. I think it's going to be hard to get accessories that work with it though so if you need a cap it's going to be hard or really expensive to get one and there won't be much variety. It's also pretty big so it may be tough to deal with in a lot of parking lots. I like the 500 mile range and a bed long enough for a couple of large mt bikes.

    I remember when X was revealed. Everyone was boned up over it and personally now I could find 5 other suvs Iíd buy at that money if I could. They look soft. Maybe thatís why these are so sharp and bold. The performance number etc are there and looks will probably grow on me. Still say Rivian in the lead

    It's also pretty big
    I haven’t compared the numbers but the articles all say it’s same size as an F150.

    I agree that the Rivian seems like the best of the bunch but they’re expensive compared to the Muskian vaporware pricing.

    I read that the Musktruck had to resort to 3 mm thick (!!) stainless because the flat panel design dents so easily otherwise.

    More and more I like the new Tesla truck. Bringing that total recall blade runner aesthetic for a dystopian futuristic truck. Everything else on the road will instantly look dated. I think.

    Customer of mine has one of those. Silly silly silly truck.
    Brandine: Now Cletus, if I catch you with pig lipstick on your collar one more time you ain't gonna be allowed to sleep in the barn no more!
    Cletus: Duly noted.

    I'm interested in curb weight, bed-haul capacity, all the other specs not yet released. While the design hasn't grown on me, I can see a scenario where they smooth the edges just a little and it could be pretty decent.
    Make a big splash and walk it back, makes the final product more palatable.
    Like in high school when I'd take a shot of gin before drinking a too-strong g&t to make it easier.

    Yeah for sure. It'll be interesting to see how electric tows. If you start seeing these things smokin the 2500s pulling a boat up parleys I think the criticism around the styling will fade. I also think the basic truck design hasn't changed in decades. Time for a change...

    Bed payload has been reported in the articles I’ve seen eg Car & Driver. 3500 lbs for all 3 versions. Allegedly. Curb weight hasn’t been stated but I’m guessing 7,000 lbs. everyone knows it’ll be fucking heavy like all e-trucks.

    Someone here asked about BOF. Nope, it’s unibody. The electric F150 will be BOF though.

    All these e-trucks will tow well in the sense of shitloads of torque starting at zero rpm, so the main concern is how shitty the towing range will be.

    125k and classifying it as "commercial" so as to get around the need to engineer basic safety systems? I was really excited for the Bollinger at first, but that enthusiasm has lessened.

    Thanks, I didn't see the car and driver article til you mentioned it:
    https://www.caranddriver.com/tesla/cybertruck

    I think my 1 ton is +/-6700lb .. So if tesla is 7000lb, can haul 3500 in the bed, and overall towing of 14000, that's gotta be one beefy unibody. I'm skeptical it wouldn't warp ... I wonder if that's bumper pull or gooseneck? If if they account for any difference .. and yeah, does E range go down to like 50 miles under load?
    If the bed is 6.5', that makes bed almost 4' tall to get to their claimed cubic foot capacity. Is there a unibody member set for gooseneck? 4' is probably too tall anyway, I'd have to go out and look. Adjustable ground clearance up to 16" is wild (what about under max load).
    I'm really intrigued to see once all the specs are in .. side-by-side with others and see where it falls.

    It's just different enough that I'm really curious to learn about the lotta in's lotta out's and lotta what have you's, man. I still don't like the way it looks , but if I could find one somewhere I'd definitely go kick the tires.

    plus, 70k isn't offensive if it really out performs conventional heavy duty trucks.

    I remember the rule as +6000lb, yeah?

    Min GVWR 6,000 lbs. and 6' bed. I think musk is a clown but I can see this truck working.
