During the Tesla Cybertruck reveal Elon Musk showed the world that the Cybertruck can pull a Ford F-150, uphill! At initial glance, you might think wow, that’s an impressive feat. Surely the Tesla’s electric torque helps it rip the F-150 in this battle of “who’s got the bigger driveshaft?” Unfortunately, physics informs us these kind of demonstrations are entirely pointless.
We’ll discuss the actual wheel torque of the Tesla Cybertruck as well as the Ford F-150, we’ll look into both vehicles weights, and we’ll analyze the video to determine if the Ford is RWD or 4WD. Ultimately, we’ll all land on the conclusion that everything we witnessed was pointless. That’s the story of life. Enjoy!
