It will be pretty wild if they can get the curb weight of the CT close to the curb weight of other ICE pickups.

For example: a 4x4 Crew Cab Chevy Silverado with a 5.7' bed weighs 4,920lbs

A custom "Trail boss" can reach as high as 5,240lbs.
Is the Trail Boss with a 6.5ft bed, or is it still the 5.7ft?

I do not expect it to be more efficient than the Model X, but I do expect it to be more efficient than the Rivian, Bollinger, and Lordstown.

That is the 6.6FT bed and 157" Wheel base, there is a slightly smaller trail boss with 5.75' bed that is 5,190lbs

Tesla claimed the CT will be a Class 2B, or “medium duty” vehicle, with a total gross vehicle weight rating of 10,000-8,500lbs.

With a rated payload capacity of 3,500lbs, that means the CT will weigh anywhere between 5000-6500lbs. I don’t think Tesla would choose to have the CT in this weight class if they had the choice, which tells me that it’s very likely the CT will be greater than 5,000lbs.

Correct with the Payload capacity being so high if the CT's curb weight is at least 5,001lbs it will fall into the Class 2 medium duty classification. The only Reason other light duty trucks don't fall into this category is because they don't have that much payload capacity.

Granted exo-skeleton engineering reduces weight. Structural battery adds weight lowering CG. The 4door CT 6.5’ pickup bed version I expect to weigh =^> my 2door ICE 4x4 5600#. WAG:

CT1 - 5300#
CT2 - 5700#
CT3 - 6500#

On Battery Day they said that the structural battery pack would reduce weight (and lower the CG). That may not impact your weight guesses; I just wanted to point out that one thing.

I never understood why people think it would weigh more than a comparable crew cab. Elon said it would be the same weight.
Thanks for the comparison between the Cybertruck with a regular full sized pickup truck. I don’t need more numbers thrown at me.

Cybertruck has a 6.5 foot bed. My Sienna van can haul up to 10 feet long lumber between the console with the hatchback closed. I may have to let any load longer than 6.6’ just hang out of the back of the bed. Hopefully, the Cybertruck has a place to tie down the rope.

Each trim line will weight differently depending on the amount of motors it has. Care to list them?

Will the Cybertruck have three different battery sizes depending on the amount of motors? What will each different battery weigh per trim line?

We don't know. It's likely. The Dual Motor will be more efficient at speed than the Single Motor. They might share a battery pack, but probably not.

The Tri Motor definitely has a bigger pack. It's rumored to have a double-size pack.

They would of course weigh different amounts.

But the motor capability would change the gross capacity of the truck as well as the battery pack. So we don't know what the wriggling differences will be. Take for instance the Plaid Model S - every combination of options changed the Monroney sticker. So we'll see that with the Cybertruck, too.
