Elon Musk recently posted a 16-second video on Twitter that shows Tesla‘s Cybertruck duking it out with a Ford F-150 in a tug-of-war match.
Musk has been taking numerous digs at the F-150, including in a tweet that simply states the Cybertruck is a “better truck than an F-150.” In the video, The Cybertruck pulled away victorious almost immediately, leading to some scepticism from the experts over at Autoblog.

Autoblog points out that while the Cybertruck gains traction and moves forward right away, the F-150’s rear wheels begin spinning. This likely means the Cybertruck’s opponent is a rear-wheel-drive F-150. The F-150 also appears to be a lower-spec STX package in a SuperCrew configuration, meaning it is somewhere between 6,070 and 7,050 pounds, as opposed to the Cybertruck’s massive battery pack and stainless steel material, which are likely heavier.
It is also unclear what version of the Cypertruck is in the video, as the vehicle will be offered with between one and three electric motors. If this is, in fact, the all-wheel-drive version with three motors, it is able to tow around 14,000 pounds.
