Within the first minute he says, "This is, the coolest pickup truck ever made."

You can stop right there if you like. :CWL:
Beyond that, Doug seems to have a fixation on kidnapping prevention.

Pretty good extensive review. Some commentary that stuck out to me:
  • The front headlights will dim when the turn signal is used.
  • The rear turn signals are quite small.
  • Interfacing with the truck is modern, but might be a big leap for the driver if they are not used to that (screen for air vents, screen for mirrors, screen for adjusting steering wheel, etc...).
  • There's no 360 camera? Did I hear that right? Doug said there is no "top-down" camera.
The closing comments sum it up pretty well though, there definitely isn't a package like this anywhere close!

He spent 38 minutes on the interior and exterior, with only a few minutes for driving. Impressed with the quirks and features. I look forward to the R1S review.

Interestingly this missed out on the highest score ever by one point. He said a couple of times how he prefers the R1S for looks and practicality so I wonder if that will get the highest Doug score.

This is true, but he also mentioned that he had been driving it for several days. He didn't take it off road though. At the end of the day, he gives it the 2nd highest score he's ever given a vehicle. That's high praise.

Camera's need a rework, ASAP! Hope that gets taken care of.
Yea, better quality and the ability to see the tow hitch are some things they can quickly fix. They really should get on that.
