I’m guessing they mean single touchscreen with no physical buttons. It’s not tricky to use though, at all.

Yeah, but I still feel this was a mistake and it belongs squarely on the Cybertruck con list...

VW ID4, R1T (on order); Prev: R1T QM
I got to sit inside of a Cybertruck for the first time yesterday. I'm not a Tesla hater or anything of the sort. But...

It was far more disappointing than I imagined. Build quality was very poor, as the dash and door panel materials were already warping and separating from each other.

The dash is ridiculously long, the front trunk is too small to be useful outside of a few grocery bags, and the stainless steel was not pleasant to touch. I cannot imagine what it would feel like in the heat.

I was hoping that the Cybertruck would find a market and sell well, after all I want many more EVs on the road.

There are a handful of them I've seen around town and one of my neighbors down the street owns one. They always look so dirty and the stainless steel shows every blemish. You'd have to get it wrapped no question.

A couple of other customers were comparing it to Rivian and both agreed they liked the R1T better.

My mind was bent long before I bought my Rivian so I didn't notice the great handling.

While I agree that I'd rather have the Rivian vs those 2, shouldn't the F150 Lightning be in the mix for a fair comparison? I would consider the Cybertruck and Hummer more of a specialty vehicle.

You are not buying the quality but buying the technology... that's so my brother said... and he just picked his up a couple of weeks ago. :rolleyes:

There are just so many little gems in this article:

Whether or not Beast mode is engaged, it has the same point-and-squirt power as the Rivian.
Huh... maybe I don't know what "point-and-squirt" means. 🤔

The Cybertruck is a lot like the head of the company that makes it: One can never be entirely sure what it will do next.
:CWL: It's still funny despite realizing it's so true.

The Rivian is the hypercar of this group... The Rivian is the best-handling truck here by such a large margin it’s barely a competition... the Rivian R1T is by far the most awesome, so it comes away with first place in our comparison test. It really is a super supertruck.
Duh.

I'm surprised that "it looks like a dumpster with four wheels" didn't make the cons list on the CT. What's funny is that despite the Rivian winning this narrative hands-down, the CT is placed in front of the other trucks in every picture.

It's a battle of the "supertrucks", so no Lightning.

This quote jumped out at me:

"We did discover a useful hack for a tight turn: Turn the steering yoke hard to the stop and let the understeering front tires scrub off speed while the rears point the truck in the right direction."

I would hate to be travelling on that curvy canyon road and come around a bend to find a CT coming at you trying to navigate the turn with this technique.
