Won't repeat my past trauma with my Jeep that she keeps on using and at some point thought it's actually hers.

@Reisender -- better buy your own. You won't have access to your wifey's,

I wonder how much reduction of coefficient of drag it made - so it’s now 60 mph in 2.85 seconds? lol

Grit - I think certain tow vehicle friends have been assigned this forum to ensure a proper "social media positivity rating".

If they were really focused on all EV news, there are many more EV trucks with exciting news that they do not report. I was surprised to see that I finally got through to one of them that the GMC Hummer was real, and real versions in testing on roads.

Maybe we need to create a survey to see if Tow Vehicle owners prefer door handles? I wonder if there is a difference between those that believe you need a diesel. Maybe our engineers can explain the weight savings without door handles, or how they meet the FMVSS.

[emoticon]We will probably have all summer to dream about this lack of handles.

I think people need to step back a bit. Some people are dodge truck enthusiasts , others like Fords or GM’s and others will like new brands like Rivian, Hummer or Tesla SUV’s or trucks. Everybody has different towing needs and wants. What works for and is exciting for one is not someone else’s taste. Live and let live folks.

Lol, where's the fun in that? So, what you're saying is that some people are enthusiastic about trucks that you can actually go out and buy and others like trucks that only exist as concepts and prototypes? All kidding aside, I'm looking forward to the day when a practical and affordable electric pickup truck is available to the public. Back to the Cybertruck, I can't figure out the appeal of the way that thing looks. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but IMO that thing is UGLY! Especially compared to the beautiful sedans Tesla makes.

But they do not post every day regarding an option or feature on the truck.

@Reisender -- are you the one being alluded to here? How much are you getting for this? Do they pay per words?[emoticon]

Me, I already admitted having vested interests being Tesla stockholder and having an order for a Cybertruck.[emoticon]

Dang, the haters' panty knots are tighter today.[emoticon]
