“Bring it on.”
These are the words of Tesla boss Elon Musk, who on Monday accepted Ford’s challenge to another tug-of-war between his recently unveiled Cybertruck and an F-150 — the most popular pickup truck in the world.
The gauntlet was thrown down by Sunny Madra, head of the automaker’s Ford X mobility venture lab, after Musk showed a tug-of-war video between the two vehicles at the Cybertruck event on Friday, November 22.
Sure enough, the Cybertruck dragged the F-150 along the asphalt, its tires screeching as it tried, in vain, to pull the other way. Tesla’s electric pickup was the clear winner in this particular towing test, proving, as far as Musk was concerned, that the yet-to-launch pickup has superior strength.
