    You'd have to pay me to buy ANYTHING chevycrap built or DOAchryslerCRAP. I'll happily buy a new BMW for MSRP. And did- CASH. GM-Chrysler CRAP co's can pay the media and advertise as much as they want how supposedly "SURPRISE" our cars are as good - NO THEY AREN'T EVEN CLOSE. Only thing they are good for are rental fleets and those are going away as well. Oh wait, and depreciating faster than your father's OLDS! HAHA GM-CHRYSLERLLC = BANKRUPT seriously man how can anyone think they can service this 65B in debt let alone EVER pay it back? Go take your Vette to Europe. America now buys more BMW-AUDI-MB-TOYOTA-HONDA-NISSAN-... than Detroit. The trend will continue. I predict 60-40

    "Why buy failure when you can buy a BMW" There's a difference? Used Commanders are too easily available to make a new one worth it. "GM-CHRYSLERLLC = BANKRUPT seriously man how can anyone think they can service this 65B in debt let alone EVER pay it back?" They won't and they shouldn't.

  • ToolGuy I did truck things with my truck this past week, twenty-odd miles from home (farther than usual). Recall that the interior bed space of my (modified) truck is 98" x 74". On the ride home yesterday the bed carried a 20 foot extension ladder (10 feet long, flagged 14 inches past the rear bumper), two other ladders, a smallish air compressor, a largish shop vac, three large bins, some materials, some scrap, and a slew of tool cases/bags. It was pretty full, is what I'm saying.The range of the Cybertruck would have been just fine. Nothing I carried had any substantial weight to it, in truck terms. The frunk would have been extremely useful (lock the tool cases there, out of the way of the Bed Stuff, away from prying eyes and grasping fingers -- you say I can charge my cordless tools there? bonus). Stainless steel plus no paint is a plus.Apparently the Cybertruck bed will be 78" long (but over 96" with the tailgate folded down) and 60-65" wide. And then Tesla promises "100 cubic feet of exterior, lockable storage — including the under-bed, frunk and sail pillars." Underbed storage requires the bed to be clear of other stuff, but bottom line everything would have fit, especially when we consider the second row of seats (tools and some materials out of the weather).Some days I was hauling mostly air on one leg of the trip. There were several store runs involved, some for 8-foot stock. One day I bummed a ride in a Roush Mustang. Three separate times other drivers tried to run into my truck (stainless steel panels, yes please). The fuel savings would be large enough for me to notice and to care.TL;DR: This truck would work for me, as a truck. Sample size = 1.
  • Art Vandelay Dodge should bring this back. They could sell it as the classic classic classic model
  • Surferjoe Still have a 2013 RDX, naturally aspirated V6, just can't get behind a 4 banger turbo.Also gloriously absent, ESS, lane departure warnings, etc.
  • ToolGuy Is it a genuine Top Hand? Oh, I forgot, I don't care. 🙂
