Cybertruck E5 – Ride & Drive, Series Wrap-Up

Cybertruck E5 - Ride & Drive, Series Wrap-Up

Cybertruck E5 – Ride & Drive, Series Wrap-Up

“Hey, boys and girls we’re back again!”  In this week’s installment of the Cybertruck vs conventional truck series, we examine the ride and drive aspects of these vehicles. Sandy takes for a spin, in alphabetical order, Chevy, F150, and Ram.

Sandy talks about some interesting drive characteristics that only a truck enthusiast who is driven the different competitor trucks would have experienced in the past.

He then moves on to breaking down the price per vehicle versus horsepower and range.  Spoiler alert! The Ford F150 wins for most torque, however, when compared with what is being proposed as the specs for the Cybertruck, nothing would come close to the proposed 800 HP and 1000 lbs of torque that the Tri-motor AWD would deliver.

But there are a few more twists and if you want to know them, you have to watch the video here!

This brings us to the conclusion of our videos comparing these vehicles. We hope you enjoyed the series and also if Tesla is watching, feel free to send us a Cybertruck if you want to here our unbiased opinions.

Also, if you are reading this, we would like to remind everyone that it is by selling reports or consulting that we really make a living.  If you want to truly support not only the creation of these videos but also to keep Munro afloat during these hard times, we just want to point out that the Model Y report is almost ready for prime time, and you can already purchase the Octovalve and Thermal System report, the Inverter report, a comparison of 10 of the leading EV motors and the Model 3.

If you are serious about competing in the new EV world, these reports are a must-have.  Don’t be left in the dust while your competitors reap the knowledge contained in these tomes.  Reports of this type don’t exist anywhere else in the market.  Contact sales@leandesign.com for more information.

Cybertruck E4 – Interior

Cybertruck E4 – Interior

Welcome back to episode 4 on the Cybertruck vs. conventional trucks series.  In todays episode, Sandy compares the interiors of the Cybertruck to what truck owners currently experience or expect on truck that are in the market currently.

Sandy points out that there are pluses and minuses with the Cybertruck’s proposed interiors.  He discusses the minimalist design, which an old time trucker, would be used to (truck in the old days had few interior features), but is nothing like the design an old-timer would expect or be used to.  He points out changes that have occurred in the expectation of truckers and how that might affect Tesla.

One interesting point that Sandy is not a fan of is the proposed steering wheel, which would terrible for off-roading and, based on the pictures provided, not street legal.

There is in depth discussion of the Instrument Panel including infotainment system and assumptions made from tearing down the model Y.  Sandy goes on to talk about door panels, seats, center consoles, HVAC, safety/restraints, and electronics.

In today’s new episode of the Cybertruck comparison with the F150, Silverado, and RAM, Sandy will be discussing driveline and off-roading capabilities.  Our 3 conventional trucks are all 4×4 capable and fairly similar in many respects owing to their long histories in the market and established paradigms.

The Cybertruck, however, is a completely different animal, including a feature that allows it to almost roll over and then restabilize and roll back which is also found in the Tesla Model Y.

Sandy also gives some great background stories of him learning to truly off-road with a Land Rover Discovery and training at the Land Rover facility in Solihull, UK.

Cybertruck Comparison Ep1 – Body Structure

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.

Episode 1 focuses on the exterior body of these vehicles and explains reasons why Tesla decided to take this angular approach in designing the Cybertruck.  Although polarizing to some, the choice of making the body 30X stainless necessitates this sort of look.

“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.

Stay tuned for our upcoming episodes, which will be released every Wednesday morning.  Next week’s episode will cover suspension, ride, and handling.
