Just got an email ad from Tesla.


Anyone know if the smarter adaptive suspension is a hardware change, or just software?

It was for S and X, all years with adaptive suspension from Raven on. From 2022.20 notes:

Tesla Adaptive Suspension​

Tesla Tesla Adaptive Suspension feature in update 2022.20

Available in the United States
Raven Models: S X
Tesla Adaptive Suspension will now adjust ride height for an upcoming rough road section. This adjustment may occur at various locations, subject to availability, as the vehicle downloads rough road map data generated by Tesla cars. The instrument cluster will continue to indicate when the suspension is raised for comfort. To enable this feature, tap Controls > Suspension > Adaptive Suspension Damping, and select the Comfort or Auto setting.

Do you know how much larger?

There are various threads discussing the larger rear screen in recent S/X builds. A little searching turned up this one but I'm sure one could something more in-depth with a little effort.

Note this thread was created to discuss possible adaptive suspension changes, not the rear screen.

Do you know how much larger?
The physical size of the panel is the same. The bezel was reduced allowing about 1.25” of additional viewable screen. It’s not a huge difference but it is slightly more viewable area on a screen that is small to begin with. With that let’s get back to the adaptive suspension discussion as indicated above.
