Give me the Hummer all day everyday and twice on Sunday! I think it looks better and I feel that it's going to be more practical to use.
I feel the Cybertruck is for a younger crowd.Hummer for sure, the Cybertruck's design is too out there for me. Plus I trust GM more than Tesla for delivering on what they promise.
That's a great way of putting it. The Cybertruck seems to appeal way more to young people. When both trucks go on sale I'd be interested to see what the age difference is between Cybertruck and Hummer buyers.I feel the Cybertruck is for a younger crowd.
As someone 45+ I don't think it would be an appropriate look. This Hummer on the other hand does.
Yeah Elon and Tesla have been known to over promise on numbers and specs. The jump in range between the dual and tri-motor Cybertruck is too good to be true.Off-road, there's no capability comparison, the Hummer destroys the Cybertruck. Not even close. Range is where the Tesla wins (assuming it actually materializes in the specs they've given...who knows). But those ranges for the Hummer EV are the absolute minimum expected, and will likely be more when released. GM is sandbagging the numbers to play it safe.
As soon as the Cybertruck hits a bump off-road body panels and trim pieces are going to be falling off left right and center.
What are you talking about? that's Tesla's new weight saving feature! 😂As soon as the Cybertruck hits a bump off-road body panels and trim pieces are going to be falling off left right and center.
Their quality issues are STAGGERING. One of the things that annoys me to no end is how rabidly the Teslarati defend their brand, in spite of glaring quality issues. They trash all the competition, but refuse to see these obvious issues with their own brand. How do you score worse than Land Rover??Has anyone been following all those Tesla quality issues coming out about the Model Y and Model 3?
Oh and they rank worse than LAND ROVER...
Lucky for Tesla, younger car buying demographics will love the Cybertruck regardless.
Starting from $40,000 does help too.
Awesome story Brian, glad to hear the H3 is still ticking! I too never thought I'd be interested in an electric vehicle, but the return of the Hummer was enough to drag me in. You reserved an EV2X?I was very disappointed in the cyber truck. I was worried that GM was going to screw the Hummer up. My wife and I watched last night and I think both of our jaws dropped. Love what GM has done with the truck. My grandmother in the early 2000s won a H3 at a casino. (We live in Nevada). My parents still have it and we are all exited to see it back. We reserved for 2023 model. I do have to say our jaws dropped again after seeing pricing, but at least we have some time to figure out how to buy this beast. I never thought I would be interested in a electric vehicle!!!
Thanks. Yes, we reserved an EV2X. What about you?Awesome story Brian, glad to hear the H3 is still ticking! I too never thought I'd be interested in an electric vehicle, but the return of the Hummer was enough to drag me in. You reserved an EV2X?
I didn't reserve any, a little out of my price range lol. Figured it's useless to reserve one if there's someone else waiting in line who actually intends to buy one. My goal is actually to grab the EV2X version of the SUV when it hits the market in the next few years. That trim level seems to give the best balance of capability and value, and I would be better served off-road with the shorter track of the SUV variant.Thanks. Yes, we reserved an EV2X. What about you?

Yeah Tesla always overstates their specs and features and then starts backpedaling afterwards.The Hummer EV is way cooler, the Cybertruck is silly looking. Tesla fans will buy it, but the F150 has nothing to worry about...
Cybertruck price and specs I will believe when I see. Tesla often advertises a price, but that is some lost leader, with no options that you cannot order, and does not include destination charges and order fees which Tesla always ads at order time. (Don't forget $35K Model 3)
Tesla will usually hit the advertised specs (although Tesla EPA range ratings have to be taken with a grain of salt), but what they do is delay the project until they have the tech to hit the spec and cost.Yeah Tesla always overstates their specs and features and then starts backpedaling afterwards.
