I doubt if GM is shooting for much of a profit on this thing. More than likely they're trying really hard to get a product out there to compete with Tesla and Rivian purely on design aesthetic and cost, and not so much on profit. Rivian and the Hummer look very good. They're both a strong take on modern American truck design (which, by the way, includes Toyota and Nissan), whereas the Tesla thing looks like some 4-year old kid's bad Lego abomination. Such traditional designs will take away a lot of the early talk from Tesla and redirect it toward trucks that actually look good.

Also, GM is using a very different battery than Tesla, which may or may not cost more or less.

This feels more like a Corvette ZR1 type project than anything else. Made in small numbers, very expensive, aimed at the price-is-no-object end of the market, very desirable, etc.

And that big battery is likely a $10,000-$20,000 upgrade, just as the big battery is with Tesla.

The sexy new Bronco is … sexy! Very nice styling. If it wasn't a Ford, I would get drooly.
