Lego’s Cybertruck Rival Really Is Shatterproof - Troll Level Epic
Whether we like it or not, Tesla’s Cybertruck is bound to populate our news feeds for longer than we expected. Helped by the now infamous “armour” windows blunder caused by your humble metal ball, the wave of mockery is getting thicker and thicker. Classier, too.
Such an example of a neat trollage came earlier this week from Tesla’s fellow carmaker BMW, as Munich’s social media department saw the window shattering a good opportunity to pile up more exposure for BMW’s bulletproof X5 Protection VR6. And then came Lego.
BMW Trolled the Tesla Cybertruck Hard on Twitter
We’re back with more Tesla Cybertruck-related news as BMW decided to capture some attention on Twitter and channel it on one of its most spectacular products by throwing some shade at the Cybertruck.
As you know, BMW will sell you, on special request, the so-called X5 Protection VR6, a heavily armoured vehicle packing 530 horsepower and the ability to withstand gunfire coming from an AK-47. This sort of badassery allowed BMW to troll Tesla and Musk for the “armor” widows gaffe that took place during the pickup truck’s live reveal.
Tesla’s Cybertruck Destroys the Ford F-150 in Painful Tug-of-War Battle (Updated)
Tesla’s Model S and Model Y have already proven that electric vehicles can top gasoline cars in terms of performance, but is the Cybertruck better than the iconic Ford F-150? Yes it is! Tesla’s presentation video of the new electric truck shows the Cybertruck winning a tug-of-war rumble against the Ford F-150 with ease.
Update 7-25-2019: Elon Musk has posted a much better video of the Tesla Cybertruck playing tug of war with the Ford F-150. Check out the new video in the new section below!
Tesla Cybertruck Exoskeleton and Design Explained
Elon Musk unveiled the 2021 Tesla Cybertruck today in a presentation that kicked off with how he’s sick and tired of pickup trucks looking the same for over a century. But he didn’t complain without a purpose; the 2021 Cybertruck is actually radically different than mainstream trucks like the Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado. Tesla found an alternative to the popular body-on-frame layout, but also built the truck from a cold-rolled stainless-steel alloy, a premiere for the truck industry. Both explain the really strange shape of the body, which we will discuss below.
Rivian R1T vs. Tesla Cybertruck, A Battle We’ve All Been Waiting For
Tesla unveiled the Cybertruck, its first properly rugged utility vehicle and first to not follow the ’Model XYZ’ nomenclature, last night during an eye-catching launch event with concert lights aplenty as well as aides dressed as if they came from a Blade Runner casting. But away from all the glitz, we’ve all been asking how the Tesla will compare when pitched against its (potentially) biggest rival, the Rivian R1T? Well, we can finally answer the question.
The Tesla Cybertruck’s Graffiti-Style Font has "Merchandise" Written All Over It
Tesla is not above trying to monetize anything that it thinks will make money. Now that the all-electric Cybertruck has been revealed, you can be sure that the California automaker will find ways to generate supplementary income when opportunities present themselves.
It just so happens that one of those opportunities is already sitting in Tesla’s lap. No, it’s not the Cybertruck itself. It’s not even the Cyberquad. It’s the Cybertruck’s graffiti-style name. If you don’t think Tesla’s not above making money off of a font, wait a few months and check the company’s online shop. You might find a t-shirt with your exact size in it.
Tesla Cybertruck vs Ford F-150: quick comparison
The highly anticipated 2021 Tesla Cybertruck is here and we’re already wondering how many customers it will steal from the Ford F-150, the world’s best-selling truck. Granted, the awkward design might not help Tesla, but the 2021 Cybertruck has some impressive features and performance targets that might bring new customers into its dealerships. Let’s see how the Cybertruck compares to the F-150.
Tesla’s Cybertruck Could Be The Perfect Overlanding Vehicle For The Adventurous Folks
When Rivian revealed its R1T truck, there was barely any information known about the Tesla pickup truck. However, a few details slowly started to emerge and it looked like the latter will be more of a performance-oriented truck. In the meanwhile, Rivian took an alternate approach to become a household name in EV adventure lifestyle segment. Just around the time when Tesla was basking in its “Under $50,000” news, Rivian started promoting its R1T truck as an EV camper instead. Until the launch of the Cybertruck, it looked like both these rivals are promoting different unique selling points. However, it looks like Tesla is stepping into Rivian’s territory now. In one of the official images, the Cybertruck is seen with a bed tent and an outdoor kitchen. Although there is no word on it yet, there is a possibility of Tesla offering a camping setup as optional. Rivian must be fuming right now!
The Tesla Cybertruck Has Everyone’s Attention, But What I Really Want Is the Cyberquad
The Tesla Cybertruck is justifiably garnering a lot of the attention today, but just because that’s the case, that doesn’t mean we should completely ignore its little companion.
Revealed late in the Cybertruck’s debut is the Tesla ATV that we now know is called the Cyberquad. The ATV was unveiled largely as a late-game surprise to show that it could fit in the 6.5-foot bed of the Cybertruck. There are currently no plans to build it, but if Tesla had the temerity to build flamethrowers, surely the door isn’t closed on the possibility of seeing the Cyberquad come to life, right? Right?
Tesla Cybertruck Towing Comparison
One of the biggest talking points of the Tesla Cybertruck has been its impressive towing capacity. Musk shook the world when he announced that the Cybertruck will be able to tow up to 300,000 pounds. It took a lot of people by surprise and left them befuddled.
During the launch, however, Musk announced the highest rating to be 14,000 pounds. Forget about beating its own expectations, the Cybertruck has not even beaten the competition. If there is something to save the Cybertruck’s grace here, it’s the instant torque on offer from a standstill. Take that out of the equation and Tesla’s wonderkid will be ruled if towing capacity is an absolute must for you. So, how does it fare against the current competition?
Tesla Shocks and Awes with Cybertruck Pricing Details
The arrival of the Tesla Cybertruck has sent shockwaves throughout the auto industry. The all-new electric truck burst into the scene last night in Los Angeles and among the litany of important and breathtaking details that were revealed, none were as surprising as the truck’s price tag, or price tags depending on the trim that you get.
The Tesla Cybertruck’s price starts at $39,900 for the entry-level Single Motor RWD trim, and that’s not counting the incentives that come with it. Tesla is already taking pre-orders for the truck with just a downpayment of $100. Meanwhile, the Dual Motor AWD trim starts at $49,900 before incentives while the range-topping Tri Motor AWD trim starts at $69,900. A $7,000 option for the self-driving feature is also available.
Is the Tesla Cybertruck Really Faster or "Better" Than the Porsche 911?
The 2021 Tesla Cybertruck just broke cover at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show and we are still struggling to cope with its polygonal design. But weirdness aside, the 2021 Cybertruck promises to be an extremely capable and fast truck.
Back in June 2019, Elon Musk said that the electric truck will be a better sports car than a basic Porsche 911. The figures confirm this apparently insane claim, so let’s see how much better the 2021 Cybertruck really is than the iconic 911.
Tesla Cybertruck Pickup Renderings versus the Real Deal
After making us wait for years, Elon Musk finally unveiled the Cybertruck at a standalone event in Los Angeles. The Cybertruck breaks the orthodox styling of a pickup truck that we’ve been seeing for a century now.
In fact, the truck looks so much different from the ones in production today that it does not even feature Tesla’s logo anywhere. No one can mistake it to be anything else. Also, there were very few renderings that matched the actual truck, but none of them got one aspect right – the roof; or rather, the missing roof. Is the truck anything like you imagined it to be?
The Tesla Cybertruck Has Arrived and There’s A LOT To Digest
The Tesla Cybertruck has finally been unveiled, and, as expected, it already has everyone buzzing. From its controversial looks to its power and performance capabilities, Tesla promised a truck like no other, and for the most part, that’s exactly what the Cybertruck is.
Reservations are now open for the Cybertruck; they went live as soon as the live unveiling ended. Interested customers will have to wait to receive their trucks, though, as full orders are expected to be taken “as production nears in late 2021.”
Tesla Cybertruck Photo Gallery
Tesla just dropped the Cybertruck and we must say, its sci-fi looks are unlike anything that’s currently on the market. The Cybertruck is bulletproof, has a starting sticker of $39,000, it can carry a matching ATV inside the bed, but it can also pull 14,000 pounds, clear the quarter mile in 10.8 seconds, and spring from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds.
Tesla Cybertruck Official Specs and Images
Ladies and gentlemen, the Tesla Cybertruck is finally here. Elon Musk’s latest brainchild wants to change the way pickup trucks have been looking for almost a century now, but it is also a ruggedness tour de force as it pack a hard-to-penetrate steel outer shell. The Cybertruck is bulletproof, can shoot from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds, and starts at $39,000. Oh, and it can carry an ATV inside its bed, too.
2021 Chevrolet Silverado HD Carhartt Special Edition
Unveiled at the 2019 SEMA Show, the 2021 Silverado HD Carhartt Special Edition is, in fact, the road-going, street-legal offspring of the Silverado 2500 HD Carhartt concept car shown back in 2016. Only this time, you will be able to actually get one from your Chevy dealership, provided you show enough patience to wait until the fall of 2020 when deliveries are slated to kick off.
Details are scarce for the time being and the 12-month waiting window is certainly far from appealing, but there are plenty of reasons to jump for joy. The Silverado HD Carhartt Special Edition is based on the Silverado 2500 LTZ, which means that in theory, it should be available with a V-8 engine. The only question is which one, as Chevy is offering a choice of two V-8s for the LTZ: a 5.3-liter and a 6.2-liter.
The New 2021 Ford Bronco Debuts in 2020 - Here’s When We’ll See It
Ford Motor Company has decided to give out the details about the launch of the new 2021 Ford Bronco in a small teaser video. The SUV will be coming in the spring of 2020, and with it comes an all-new logo in the video.
There is no denying that the upcoming Ford Bronco is the most anticipated vehicle in the U.S. at the moment. It has been in the news constantly for almost a year now, and it was spotted wearing camouflage a couple of times in the last few months. Leaked information and confirmated has stoked the fire even more. Now, it looks the big day of its reveal is finally set in stone. Are we hyped about it? Hell yeah!
A Modded Ford F-150 Raptor and a Stripped Down Jeep Wrangler Head to the Drag Strip and We Didn’t Expect the Outcome
There are two things we can never get tired of – calling Trump a pumpkin and watching pickup trucks go at each other in a drag race. The folks at Carwow are here with another drag race, this time involving the two iconic American trucks – the Jeep Wrangler and the Ford F-150 Raptor. Hold on; there’s a twist. While the Wrangler comes in stock form, the F-150 Raptor doesn’t. Will this tilt the scales in the Blue Oval’s favor?
