Don’t be fooled by its futuristic styling — the Cybertruck is a power tool that real men will appreciate.
The introduction of the Tesla Cybertruck sent the internet into a frenzy of excitement and confusion. To say that it’s different is an understatement.
Although it’s “peculiar” aesthetic design has been the butt of jokes and many unflattering memes, there is no denying this truck’s impressive utility and performance credentials.
In fact, the Cybertruck does so many things right that it didn’t come as a surprise when it was revealed that over 500,000 people had pre-ordered one. As far as electric pickup trucks go, it seems to deliver in the areas that matter the most.
Granted that all men are essentially car enthusiasts at heart, those who are able to look past a car’s looks for its substance will certainly find many things to like about Tesla’s electric pickup truck.
12 Reasons Men Like The Tesla Cybertruck
Here are 12 features that make the Tesla Cybertruck stand out. Go over them, and let us know what you’re looking forward to the most.
1. Serious Road Presence
Love it or hate it, there is no denying that its polarizing design gives the Cybertruck some serious road presence. Outside the world of science-fiction, it looks like no other car.
With an overall length of 231.7 inches, width of 79.8 inches, and height of 75.0 inches, it’s also big! So big, in fact, that makes something as large as a Ford F-150 look a size smaller.
It’s a one two-punch with the Cybertruck. If it’s massive proportions don’t grab your attention, it’s radical design certainly will.
Show up in one, and people will notice. Buying one for your business can do wonders for its brand image.
2. Low, Affordable Price
The Cybertruck’s price is just as shocking as its design, but in a way that isn’t controversial. In fact, it is surprisingly very affordable for an electric vehicle of its capabilities.
Three variants of Tesla’s truck will be available, and their configuration and prices are given below:
- Single Motor Rear Wheel Drive: $39,900
- Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive: $49,900
- Tri-Motor All-Wheel Drive: $69,900
Considering that the average transaction price for a full-size pickup in America is $40,000 to $50,000, the Cybertruck is very attainable for the millions of pickup truck owners who will eventually replace their ride. For the price of a Model 3, you get a much more substantial vehicle.
3. Segment-Leading EV Range
The Cybertruck delivers impressive range for an electric vehicle, let alone an electric pickup truck, helping alleviate range anxiety. Here are your options:
- Single Motor Rear Wheel Drive: 250 Miles (402 km)
- Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive: 300 Miles (483 km)
- Tri-Motor All-Wheel Drive: 500 Miles (805 km)
With 500 miles of driving range, the tri-motor, all-wheel drive Cybertruck sets a new benchmark for the electric vehicle segment. It’s important to note that, when it comes to range, Tesla has a history of under-promising and over-delivering.
This was the case for the Model X, Model 3, and Model Y, so you can almost guarantee that when the Tesla Cybertruck comes out, it too will have more range than initially advertised
4. Faster Than Most Supercars
With an overall length of 231.7 inches, width of 79.8 inches, and height of 75.0 inches, as well as a whopping 5,132 pounds (2,328 kg) curb weight, the Cybertruck is a very big and very heavy vehicle by any measure.
Yet, Tesla says the tri-motor variant can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in around 2.9 seconds!
That’s quicker than all but a handful of supercars and even gives the Bugatti Chiron a run for its money.
5. Seats Up To Six People
The Tesla Cybertruck isn’t big for nothing. Intelligent packaging of the cabin allows it to seat up to six people.
The rear seats are wide enough to comfortably accommodate three full-grown adults, while we imagine the front area can be equipped with a third seat between the driver and right passenger seats.
There is additional storage under the second-row seats for your cargo and equipment.
6. Most Indestructible Truck?
Okay, to say the Cybertruck is indestructible would be a bit of a stretch, but its body is more impenetrable than virtually every other mainstream car or truck on the market.
That’s because the Cybertruck’s exoskeleton is made of ultra-hard 30X cold-rolled stainless steel that Tesla claims is dent-free, corrosion-free, and bullet-proof.
Moreover, its windows and windshields are made of “armored” glass that is almost shatterproof and cushions and avert impact force.
We don’t know of a single current or upcoming vehicle with that level of durability.
7. Pulls (Tows) Like A Freight Train
The Tesla Cyber Truck can tow more than similarly-priced trucks from Ford, GM, FCA and other manufacturers. The tow rating for the different variants are as follows:
- Single Motor Rear Wheel Drive: Over 7,500 lbs.
- Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive: Over 10,000 lbs.
- Tri-Motor All-Wheel Drive: Over 14,000 lbs.
Considering that the Ford F-150’s max towing capacity is just over 13,000 pounds, the Cybertruck’s 14,000-pound maximum towing capacity is certainly something worth bragging about. However, be aware that towing anything with an electric vehicle can reduce its driving range by about half.
8. Impressive Payload Capacity
According to Tesla, the Cybertruck will be able to carry a maximum payload of 3,500 pounds (1,588 kg), while the F-150 has a maximum payload of 3,270 pounds (1,483 kg).
For the people who actually use their pickup truck for work, there are few things this truck won’t be able to carry.
9. Lots Of Exterior Storage Space
Excluding the cab, but including the bed, the Cybertruck has 100 cubic feet (2,832 liters) of lockable storage space, compared to the 2020 F-150’s 77.4 cubic feet (2192 liters) of storage space outside the cab.
It has a front trunk, as well as additional storage under the rear bed and in the side sails
10. Versatile Truck Bed
Not only can the Cybertruck’s truck bed carry a lot, but it is also extremely versatile. Here are some standout convenience features that will make your life easier:
- Metal Truck Bed Cover: A retractable metal canopy covers the Tesla truck bed, and it’s strong enough to withstand a person’s weight.
- Built-in Ramp: The CyberTruck comes out of the factory with a built-in ramp that lets you easily load things such as an AT4 and motorbike into the bed.
- L Track Rails: There are embedded tie-down L track rails on the sidewall of the truck bed for securing items.
- Air Suspension: You can raise and lower suspension for easy access to into Cybertruck or its truck bed.
The versatility of the Cybertruck is unprecedented. It can do just about anything that other commonly sold pickup trucks can do, albeit better in most cases.
11. Electric Power Generator
The Tesla pickup truck comes with a huge onboard battery that should be able to power your house for weeks, if not months. It also comes with a built-in 110V and 220V outlet that allows use of power tools without a portable generator.
Whether you are camping or doing construction work, the Cybertruck makes it so that you no longer need to carry around a seperate a generator.
12. Off-Road Capable
Not only is the Tesla truck well suited for heavy duty work, but it’s also a very capable off-road vehicle that can take you far off the beaten track.
That’s because every Cybertruck comes with an air suspension that can raise the body for a total ground clearance of 16 inches, allowing for an approach angle of 35 degrees and a departure angle of 28 degrees. They come with a dedicated ‘Off Road’ mode.
For comparison, the most impressive off-road Ford pickup truck, the F-150 Raptor, has a maximum ground clearance of 11.5 inches, an approach angle of 30.2 degrees, and departure of 23 degrees.
A Truck For Real Men
It’s apparent that Tesla thought deeply about working men when developing the Cybertruck. Say what you will about it’s polarizing design, but this is a no-nonsense electric truck designed to get things done!
It’s adaptable for any need, featuring a versatile utilitarian design that makes it well suited for everyday use, the construction site, or a post-apocalyptic world.
If the preliminary specifications are anything to go by, Tesla achieved its goal of building a well-rounded, environmentally-sound electric utility vehicle that’s a better truck than an F-150, faster than a Porsche 911, and inexpensive so that Average Joes around the world can afford one.
The Cybertruck is a vehicle of substance — versatile, high-powered tool unlike anything we’ve seen from a mainstream automaker — and that’s why it’s a pickup truck for real men!
