Default Some truck!

.
Truly new and different ! Light bar completely across the front, luxury model, astounding performance.

So many features, it us hard to count! ..But of course it may be too revolutionary for some..

Base price of $39.9 K seems competitive, but range seems short..

Nice details, sliding "vault" cargo cover, tailgate that expands to ramp for loading ATV, suspension can be very low for

highway cruising, or rise to 16" for off road.. Bulletproof !

So, the glass didn't rise to expectations, but likely that will be solve for production models

OK, so who here will be first to spring for a new one ?

I think itis way cool. I really like the straight line look. Of course being an old guy it would have to have the option of coming with a Hemi for me to be in the market.

My old Durango turned 150,000 miles at Christmas of 2016 and I'm going to have to hurry if I get it to turn over 160,000 miles by Christmas of this year. At that rate it may outlast me. I would still drive the old girl across the country. It doesn't use an oil and I just put new exhaust and tires on it........and the radio still works!

That looks like something I would have made 40 years ago when I only had a sheet metal brake, electric shear, TIG welder, and hand tools to work with.

The truck looks interesting but I just can't get excited about an electric vehicle.

Why settle for the cheapie? Get the tri-motor version and be the fastest kid on the block compared to all other trucks and most cars. All it takes to hold your's is a refundable $100 deposit and waiting until 2022.

Ponzie, thine name is Tesla. A man selling a dream made with smoke and mirrors with a tiny drop of snake oil.

That thing looks like a Hollywood prop for a truck set in a futuristic post apocalyptic world.

I know Elon Musk at the personal level. He's asked me to test-out the thing in the desert about fifteen miles east of Reno...
