Cybertruck Comparison Ep1 – Body Structure
Munro kicks off their next video series today which will compare the 3 leading pickup trucks currently in the market (F150, Silverado, and RAM) with the Tesla Cybertruck.

“Stainless Steel is not your best friend when it comes to forming techniques,” says Sandy Munro, which is why the Cybertruck has to be formed using a press brake rather than stamping dies. “These lines (on conventional trucks) are impossible with anything that is hard like a stainless steel,” Sandy re-iterates.
