This 2020 RX 450h Is The Best RX You Can Buy

  This 2020 RX 450h Is The Best RX You Can Buy The driving experience of your modern SUV owes a great deal to the Lexus RX. When it took home our inaugural SUV of the Year in 1999, we praised the RX for not compromising on ride quality, fuel economy, and handling the way most other SUVs did for the benefit of occasional off-roading. The driving experience of your modern SUV owes a great deal to the Lexus RX. When it took home our inaugural SUV of the Year in 1999, we praised the RX for not compromising on ride quality, fuel economy, and handling the way most other SUVs did for the benefit of occasional off-roading. The success of the RX is part of the reason your crossover doesn't drive like a shrunken pickup.

  • Tesla CEO Elon Musk responded to a Tweet pitching an idea for a fold-down window on the upcoming Cybertruck electric pickup.
  • The truck's rear window would need to roll down into the wall, which then could fold inward and be flush with the rear seats, which are also folded down.
  • The Cybertruck starts at $39,900 for the single motor with rear-wheel drive, and tops out at $69,900 for the tri motor with all-wheel drive.

A Tesla fan account tweeted at Tesla CEO Elon Musk with an idea for the upcoming Cybertruck pickup: a drop-down rear window and flat-folding rear seats so that longer items can be stored in the truck's bed. In typical Elon fashion, the Tesla CEO responded to the idea, saying, "Worth considering."

The Auto Industry's Recovery May Delay Its Future

  The Auto Industry's Recovery May Delay Its Future The Auto Industry's Recovery May Delay Its FutureThe coronavirus pandemic has thrown a wrench into the electric and autonomous transformation the car industry was poised to ramp up in 2020. Capital has dried up, workers can't go to work and the revenue needed to fund these investments has evaporated.

This wouldn't be the first time the Tesla CEO has taken a Twitter user's idea for a feature on one of his cars. A Tesla owner on Twitter pitched Musk the idea for Dog mode, a climate-control feature that leaves the A/C on when a pet is in the car with a message that reads: "My owner will be back soon. Don't worry! The heater [or A/C] is on and it's XX degrees." Musk simply responded with "Yes," and the feature was later added in an over-the-air software update.

The idea for the folding rear wall, which Musk says is worth considering, suggests that the Cybertruck's rear window would be able to roll down into the wall, which then could fold inward and be flush with the rear seats, which are also folded down. It's not far-fetched, because the Chevrolet Avalanche pickup had a drop-down rear wall similar to this.

The Nikola Badger, a New Fuel-Cell Pickup, Starts Preorders June 29

  The Nikola Badger, a New Fuel-Cell Pickup, Starts Preorders June 29 First consumer product of a commercial-vehicle maker, it'll be offered either as a pure fuel-cell vehicle or as a battery-electric that can be upgraded to add fuel-cell power. Nikola CEO Trevor Milton announced that preorders for the Badger pickup will open on June 29. The Badger will be available as a hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle or a battery-electric vehicle with the fuel cell available as an upgrade anytime after purchase. The pickup will be showcased at the automaker’s annual Nikola World event sometime in 2020.

EV startup Bollinger recently patented something similar. In the B1 SUV and B2 pickup, there's a Passthrough and Frunkgate, allowing storage of items in the trucks that are as long as the vehicles themselves. The Passthrough goes directly down the middle of the truck right in between the driver's- and passenger-side seats.

We don't know much about the Cybertruck's dimensions, or what's under the floor, but the idea could be possible. In a video with Jay Leno, Musk noted that the Cybertruck will look similar to the prototype version, but it needs to improve visibility and shrink by about five percent. If Musk does bring @TeslaTruckClub's idea into fruition, the fold-down wall would be perfect for storing long items and for camping under the stars.

The Tesla Cybertruck starts at $39,900 for the single-motor model with rear-wheel drive, and it tops out at $69,900 for the tri-motor version with all-wheel drive. Production is scheduled to commence late next year.
