Tesla’s Cybertruck has ultimately been revealed, and that indicates we have a choice of genuine technical information to chew more than and to examine with the specifications of its electric pickup truck rivals. A base rear-wheel drive Cybertruck is coming in 2025 but for now the lineup is restricted to the mid-spec AWD model and the Porsche-consuming Cyberbeast.

We’ve picked the Cyberbeast for this comparison, and have pitted against its important rivals in the increasingly busy $100k electric truck segment, these becoming the leading-spec versions of the Chevy Silverado, Ford F-150 Lightning, GMC Hummer and Rivian R1T.

› -60mph: two.six seconds

You’ve almost certainly currently heard that the production Cybertruck delivers a lot much less than was initially promised in several places. The $60,990 base model coming in 2025 is $21k a lot more pricey than targeted, and the leading-spec, tri-motor Cyberbeasts has had its 500-mile (805 km) variety slashed to 440 miles (708 km) – and only achieves that when you selection an additional battery that sets into bed space. And to cap it all, the 14,000 lbs (six,350 kg) towing capacity touted in 2019 now stands at 11,000 lbs (five,000 kg).

On the flip side, the composite bed’s two,500 lbs (1,130 kg) max payload is virtually twice as huge as the GMC Hummer’s and the 845 hp (857 PS) Cyberbeast model’s outrageous two.six-second zero to 60 mph (97 kmh) time is genuinely supercar-rapid. With that in thoughts, it is in fact competitively-priced, and the crazy styling plus fascinating technical information (bulletproof stainless skin, steer-by wire) imply it is the most fascinating factor to come about to trucks for years.

2024 Ford F-150 Lightning Platinum

› Price: $91,995
› -60mph: below four seconds 
› Power: 580 hp
› Drive: dual-motor, AWD
› Range: 300 miles
› Payload: 1,952 lbs

› Towing: eight,500 lbs (with tow package)

The Cybertruck’s most clear rival has also been hit with huge rates to cover a huge enhance in material expenses, but it is nevertheless feasible to acquire a base Ford F-150 Lightning for much less than $50k, or a mid-spec version with AWD and a beneficial 320-mile (515 km) variety for much less than the $70k Tesla desires for the entry-level, RWD, Cybertruck coming in 2025. The F-150 EV’s sensible appears will also appeal to some purchasers, and every person can appreciate the generous payload capacity and a enormous frunk that is twice as huge as the Tesla’s.

Where the case for the Lightning falls apart is at the upper finish of the lineup. The Platinum-grade flagship expenses $91,995, which means it is not considerably more affordable than the Cyberbeast, but it is way down on energy since it gets the exact same 580 hp (588 PS) powertrain as the mid-spec Lightning XLT priced $22k beneath it in the variety. Platinum versions also drop out on the XLT/Lariat’s ten,000 lbs (four,540 kg) tow rating and drop 20 miles (32 km) of variety.


› Price: $105,000 RST First Edition
› -60mph: below four.five seconds
› Power: 754 hp
› Drive: dual-motor, AWD
› Range: 400 miles (est)
› Payload: 1,300 lbs
› Towing: ten,000 lbs

Turned off by the Cyberbeast’s polarizing style (and CEO), but want a bit a lot more zip and visual punch than the Lightning delivers? Then verify out the new Chevrolet Silverado EV – particularly the variety-topping RST – or its GMC Sierra twin. Both are constructed on GM’s Ultium platform and Chevy says the RST can stretch a charge to about 400 miles (644 km) and add one hundred miles (161 km) of variety in just ten minutes thanks to blazing-quick 350 kW charging capability. Chevy also says the RST can get to 60 mph (97 kmh) in four.five seconds, which appears quite conservative provided the 754 hp (765 PS) energy output and Ford’s sub-four-second claim for the considerably much less potent Lightning.

Like the F-150, the Silverado is only obtainable as a crew cab and has a enormous frunk, but the Chevy also offer’s a clever mid-gate function to let loads also lengthy for the six-ft (1,800 mm) bed to pass by way of into the cabin. However, a 1,300 lbs (590 kg) payload rating is considerably worse than the F-150’s and Cybertruck’s, and at $105,000 for the First Edition, the RST also appears pricey subsequent to the considerably more quickly Tesla.

2024 GMC Hummer EV 3X

› Price: $104,650
› -60mph: three. seconds
› Power: 1,000 hp
› Drive: tri-motor, AWD
› Range: 381 miles
› Payload: eight,500 lbs

Towing: 1,300 lbs

Recipient of the most unlikely comeback ever award, the reincarnated Hummer is constructed off the exact same Ultium platform as the Silverado and Sierra EVs but feels like a Pixar caricature of these trucks. Instead of the two motors in the leading-spec Silverado RST you get 3 that delivers a good round 1,000 hp (and a much less round 1,017 PS). And in spite of a gargantuan curb weight of up to 9,000 lbs (four,080 kg), the 3X can get to 60 mph (97 kmh) in just three seconds.

Review: The 1,000 HP GMC Hummer EV Pickup Is Wonderfully Ridiculous

It can also do cool stuff like drive diagonally, courtesy of its Crabwalk function, but for all its ‘ultimate truck’ posturing, the Hummer is a quite poor pickup. It has a relatively unimpressive eight,500 lbs (three,860 kg) tow rating and its five-ft (1,520 mm) bed is shorter than than some rivals’.

2024 Rivian R1T Quad-Motor


› Price: $87,000
› -60mph: three. seconds
› Power: 835 hp
› Drive: quad-motor, AWD
› Range: 328 miles
› Payload: 1,764 lbs
› Towing: 11,000 lbs

The R1T’s distinctive front-finish styling indicates the otherwise conventionally-styled Rivian stands out from the truck crowd with no searching Tesla-weird, but its genuine USP is the obtainable quad-motor drivetrain whose three.-second zero to 60 mph (97 kmh) time created it the quickest truck on the block till the tri-motor Cyberbeast was launched.

Tesla’s truck has the Rivian licked for variety and payload, but the R1T’s 11,0000 lbs (four,990 kg) towing capacity matches the Cybertruck’s and is the ideal right here in addition to the Ram 1500 REV’s (see beneath). One key surprise is how comparatively inexpensive the $87,000 leading-dog R1T appears subsequent to its rivals thinking about it is extensively viewed as an pricey truck.

2025 RAM 1500 REV 

RAM 1500 REV 
› Price: $95,000 (est, for leading trim)
› -60mph: four.four seconds (est)
› Power: 654 hp
› Drive: dual-motor, AWD
› Range: 500 miles (with opt battery)
› Payload: two,700 lbs
› Towing: 14,000 lbs

You’ve almost certainly noticed there are a handful of ‘estimate’ caveats subsequent to the information in the box above. That’s since even though Ram revealed the 1500 REV at the starting of 2023, it does not go on sale till the finish of 2024 so there’s a lot we nevertheless do not know about it.

But what we do know tends to make it soundworth waiting for. Just appear at the variety, towing and payload figures: no other truck right here can touch the Ram’s numbers. And even though Ram has so far only revealed a single energy figure of 654 hp (663 PS), it has confirmed that several configurations will be obtainable, and you just know that there will be a version placing out a heap a lot more ponies along quickly.
