Cybertruck and Ford F150 in a Tug of War
In a head-to-head tug of war, the Cybertruck faced off against a Ford F150. In the video, the Cybertruck can be seen pulling away very quickly and dragging the Ford F150 behind it, with the sounds of squealing tires on the F150 being heard.
Why did the Cybertruck win this tug of war? The Cybertruck is an electric truck that is manufactured by Tesla and is designed to be capable of towing nearly any weight and has a maximum towing capacity of about 14,000 lbs.
In addition to that, the Cybertruck is equipped with an adjustable air suspension system, which allows it to operate on all terrains efficiently. The Cybertruck here probably also weighs around 7,000 lbs. and a Ford F150 weighs 4,200 lbs. to about 5,800 lbs. depending on the spec.
The Cybertruck is simply a larger and more powerful "beast" and that is the reason for the victory. It's tough to beat a vehicle that is heavier and more powerful than you, and that's no knock against the Ford F150. It is still a very fine truck.

The Cybertruck isn't released yet, but I see it costing more than the $40,000 base model of the Ford F150 and upwards of $90,000 for the highest model that could have 500 miles of range.
I would love to see a video of something that gives a Cybertruck a challenge and possibly a draw or beats it in a tug of war!
