Recent developments in the world of transport have made the commute so much more efficient and eco-friendlier. Electric vehicles (like trucks) have given rise to new possibilities and feel like something out of our dreams. Tesla was the first one to turn electric cars into a reality. However, recently many new companies have come up with their versions, and Ford seems to be bringing in a competition. Today we will be comparing the Tesla Cybertruck with the Ford F150 Lightning. Will the Ford F150 Lightning take this win, or will the Tesla Cybertruck get to keep the crown? Read on the article so that you may get to know.
The starting cost of the Tesla Cybertruck is about $39,000, which is comparable with the Ford F150 Lightning base model. They are not equivalent on specs for base models, but for roughly $40K you can drive an electric pickup from either company.
While the Ford F150 Lightning is not much different in design than its fuel-powered counterparts, the Tesla Cybertruck offers a unique design that seems to be something out of a sci-fi movie. With the Ford truck, you opt for practicality and efficiency with a minimal upgrade in the design. On the other hand, the Tesla Cybertruck breaks the mold on how a truck should look so that it can maximize performance, range, and payload.
Even though the Ford F150 lightning truck offers a range of new features, you are still getting the same dials and physical buttons as in the previous models. On the other hand, the Test Cybertruck is going for a full-on touchscreen experience.
The Ford truck will feature a Mega Power Frunk, which is a large front trunk in addition to a fold-out workstation and completely foldable front seats. With the Test Cybertruck, you will also get a Tesla experience similar to previous models with a few key differences, such as an angular roof and the straight-edged cyberpunk design.
With a towing capacity of more than 14,000 lbs. in the tri-motor, the Tesla Cybertruck wins this round against the Ford, which can tow around 8000 lbs. The Ford, however, does not have tri-motor lightning so, the comparison would be somewhat unfair.
5. Acceleration Capacity
The Tesla Cybertruck promises to go from 0-60 mph in a mere 2.9 seconds, whereas the Ford can achieve this acceleration in about 4.3 seconds.
You get a range of about 230 miles with the entry-level Ford F150 lightning, which extends to around 300 miles with the extended-range model. Tesla offers a 250-mile range on the base model, which goes up to 500 miles with the tri-motor model.
The Cybertruck can charge from 10 to 80% within 44 minutes, while the F150 takes 45 minutes to go from 15 to 80%.
8. Autonomous driving
The BlueCruise system in the Ford F150 controls steering and acceleration, so you don’t have to keep your hands on the wheel at all times. However, the FSD add-on on the Tesla offers automatic navigation.
Final Result: Tesla Cybertruck VS Ford F150 Lightning
There is no clear winner here because, in the end, the choice depends on the user and what kind of experience he wants. For a more traditional experience, you can go for the Ford F150 Lightning, whereas the Tesla Cybertruck can provide you with a unique and different driving experience.
