Tesla Cybertruck Takes On Ford F-150 In Tug-Of-War
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has put his money where his mouth is and put the newly-debuted Tesla Cybertruck up against the Ford F-150 in a tug-of-war challenge after claiming his pickup is a “better truck than an F-150.”
Musk Tweeted out the video of the Cybertruck pulling the F-150 with screeching tires up the hill. However, Ford thinks the matchup was an apples-to-oranges situation with the two-wheel-drive F-150 put up against an all-wheel-drive Cybertruck.
Ford X vice president, Sundeep Madra, also took to Twitter to challenge Musk by asking for Cybertruck to be sent to Ford:
In typical Musk fashion, he responded simply with “Bring it on”. You can say a lot about Musk but being humble isn’t one of those things.
To put things in perspective, the Cybertruck’s towing capacity is 10,000+ while the Ford 1-50 has about a 13,000 lb. payload. However, again, the F-150 is rear-wheel-drive while the Cybetruck is all-wheel-drive.
Do you think it was a fair matchup? Or did Musk set it up with an obvious advantage for the Cybertruck?
