Tesla is set to revolutionize the pickup truck market with the upcoming release of the Cybertruck. First unveiled in 2019, the Cybertruck boasts an unparalleled blend of futuristic design and cutting-edge features that set it apart from traditional pickups.
Built with 30X cold-rolled stainless steel, the Cybertruck’s body is both resilient against dents and rust, setting a new standard for durability. Bulletproof glass panels further emphasize the vehicle’s commitment to innovation and safety. The 6.5-foot cargo box, aptly referred to as a “vault,” ensures ample storage space for diverse needs.
The spacious cabin accommodates six seats and introduces a minimalist dashboard design. The yoke steering wheel adds a futuristic touch, complemented by a 17-inch infotainment screen that serves as the focal point of the interior. Subscriptions for in-car gaming and video streaming offer additional entertainment options.
The Cybertruck’s performance variants cater to various needs:
- Entry-level: Single motor, rear-wheel drive, 7,500-pound towing capacity, around 250 miles of range, 0-60 mph in 6.5 seconds.
- Midrange: Dual motors, all-wheel drive, 10,000-pound towing capacity, around 300 miles of range, 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds.
- Flagship: Triple motor, all-wheel drive, 14,000-pound towing capacity, around 500 miles of range, 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds.

The Cybertruck boasts up to 16 inches of ground clearance, supported by an adaptive air suspension system. Autopilot technology comes standard, enhancing driver assistance and safety.
Comparisons with the F-150 Lightning highlight the Cybertruck’s positioning in the medium-duty truck segment. With a starting price of $39,000 for the base model, the Cybertruck offers an appealing alternative to traditional pickups, beginning below the F-150 Lightning’s base price.
