Is it really a futuristic design though? It looks like from the set of 1980s movie Megaforce.

no, it's aggressively 80's retro futuristic (thus the cyber). and i'm all in (as a semi nostalgic child of the 80's).

I have zero doubt that they'll sell them faster than they can produce them. Watched a soccer mom drop her kids off at the Fromme gate last night in a GM AT4 HD Duramax, big trucks are hip regardless if it ever get's used for 20% of it's potential. 

Hey; I resemble that comment!

Anyway my AT4 HD Duramx gets ~12L/100km, 16L/100km with sled and trailer.  The tailgate is primo for beers.

I reached Peak Petrosexual this evening when the drive thru worker said she couldn't hear me over my loud truck.  Later I almost creamed my pants when I passed a Tesla when the Cuck braked in a corner. ☺️
