There are other "bars" including the liquor store and the garage. I prefer the liquor store, the garage, and a couple of folding chairs.…it depends on the definition of “truck”
F-150 Lightning is like walking into a place where the guy behind the bar is wearing a t-shirt, has an Irish lilt in his voice and asks “ what you be havi’n?” Before you even finish he’s putting the damn drink up on the bar for ya! No money just a nod and asks if you wanna a tab.
Cybertruck is more a big place full of strangers who don’t all speak the same language, except everyone knows its Elon’s. The guy behind the bar is staight forward asks for your reservation. Asks whether you’d like sit at the bar for drinks or wait to order. You reply drinks! Sure. He returns with menus. Asks what you’d like to order. Just drinks! Fine do you want to eat at the bar? Or should we keep your reservation open for a table. The latter you choose. Hostess shows before drinks to infom a table is open in a half hour. Perfect! Drink, drink. You ask on the third round of drinks if your table is ready? LOL they’re busy.
Yeah, two different bars! Two different trucks. One works like a pickup, priced like a pickup and feels like a pickup. Its a pickup - no doubt.
The other works like a truck with better performance than a sportscar! It’s same as a pickup - its a thinking man’s truck. It’s priced less than a pickup and out runs and guns one too! It feels like a sportscar and faster than a 911 Porsche. Its got you thinking its the fastest pickup on the planet - no doubt.
At the end of the day, the F-150 bar guys buy trucks ’cuz they’re truck guys, know trucks and if FORD don’t make it you don’t need one!
Cybertruck guys have bought EV and buy a truck ‘cuz they don’t want just any old truck - they want the best EV the world has to offer. Elon makes those.
I am glad Ford has entered the E.V. market. Their product is substandard, I expect it is purposeful and calculated, but at least they have offerings. I am exhausted from all of the posturing.
I regularly use my truck for trips to the dump, recycling center and the wrecking yard. Every time I cross those scales after dropping my payload I am shown a weight of 5280. Yes, these scales are not accurate to the gram, but they are consistent and commercial. So, feel free to be suspicious, but the numbers I have seen over the 14 years I've owned this truck are consistent.1971 ¾ ton @ 5300 lbs is suspect
1997 ⅓ ton ==5365 lbs. stock in my Bio picture
