Now that we have the numbers regarding the payload and towing capacity of the Tesla Cybertruck, we have a comparison of how it performs against other potential competitors.
Starting with a towing capacity of 11,000 pounds, this number is less than the likes of the 2023 Ford F-150 (14,000 pounds), the 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 (up to 13,300 pounds), and the 2023 Chevrolet Silveradovrolet (20,000 pounds). In fact, this number seems very low compared to the 2024 Ford Super Duty (up to 40,000 pounds), and the 2024 Ram HD (37,090 pounds).
That said, the Tesla Cybertruck is said to be able to carry a heavy load of up to 2,500 pounds, which is more than the 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 (2,260 pounds), the Ford F-150 (2,455 pounds), and the Ram 2s, 1300 (1300 pounds). ).
However, when compared to pickup trucks from Chevrolet, Ford, and Ram, the Cybertruck’s budget seems to be lacking. Take the case of the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD, which has a payload capacity of 7,234 pounds; Ford Super Duty, which claims to be able to tow 8,000 pounds; and the Ram HD, which can carry up to 7,680 pounds of cargo.
Compared to its EV competitor – the Rivian R1T – the Cybertruck’s towing and towing capabilities are almost identical. The Rivian RT1 can tow 11,000 pounds, while its payload capacity — at 1,760 pounds — is lower than the Cybertruck’s 2,500 pounds.
It remains to be seen if the leaked revenue and hype of the Cybertruck can turn out to be true, but these numbers could be disappointing based on consumer expectations for Tesla’s EV.
