I know, right?This is one of my top 5 reasons why I ordered a Cybertruck. I love the 3mm thick 300 series stainless steel exoskeleton with a natural finish. It eliminates most door dings/hail damage/dents, scratched paint, pitted paint from road debris, waxing, polishing, etc. There is no other full size truck currently on the market that even comes close in exterior durability. Even the bed will be stainless steel. WOW!!!
Ford, GMC and Dodge have been telling us for decades how "tough" their trucks are but they've been lying through their teeth, it's just typical marketing. They are not tough unless your definition of "tough" is being clad in soft, thin, mild steel that requires a coat of paint be maintained to prevent them rusting away in a flash. Strip the paint off with an acid and the metal will rust to nothing after a couple of years in normal weather. Watch an errant baseball leave a big ugly dent. Hey, kids! Don't be playing ball around my truck because it's weak and fragile and I don't want it to get a dent. Be careful!
Let a fresh breeze cause a shopping cart to roll across the parking lot and into the side of your "tough" truck and see how tough it really is. Yes, you're going to have a new door dent. Throw a small split of firewood over the side of the bed, you had better hope your grip doesn't slip last minute causing it to bang into the side of the bed! Cause that's gonna leave a mark! Ford even makes their trucks out of softer aluminum now - they are going in the wrong direction. Yet they still call them "Ford tough".
Hailstorm? Better park that "tough" truck under a real roof. Cause those hailstones are going to leave some nice dents in that thin soft metal! Even driving down the highway small stones and pebbles will remove chips in that paint.
The Cybertruck can handle all of these threats and more without breaking a sweat. It'll be the first truck that can be honestly marketed as being "tough". Ford, GM and Dodge could learn a thing or two about what it means to be tough and powerful. They are about to be humiliated!
