There have been plenty of people pointing out that they think the video of the Tesla Cybertruck outclassing the Ford F-150 in a tow battle was unfair. Tesla didn't provide any details, but it appears the F-150 was rear-wheel drive. In addition, it seems like the Cybertruck got a head start. You can check out the original video once again by scrolling down to the bottom of this article.
Hopefully, none of the above will matter soon, as these two trucks are expected to face off again in an "apples-to-apples" towing contest.
We can only assume that if CEO Elon Musk wasn't confident the Tesla Cybertruck would win under almost any circumstances, he probably wouldn't have replied, though he didn't think the Cybertruck's glass was going to break, so who knows.
Regardless, if Musk wasn't up for the challenge, he could have just said that Tesla only has one of these prototypes and this matchup will have to happen at a later date. However, now it seems he wants to get the show on the road as soon as next week.
DPCcars takes a brief look into the details. Check out the videos and let us know your prediction related to the upcoming towing matchup.
