I bet it will be an add option that they are still finalizing. To do what that ramp is shown to do like take an ATV hitting it and driving over it, it will have to be pretty heavy and no sense in having every CT on the road carrying around 150 lbs of extra tailgate. I will probably get it because I would use it a lot.
Most pickup truck bed sides and tailgate are 19" to 22" tall.
The Cybertruck demo two retractable ramp sections could only be max 19"-22" each ( 2 total less 4ft).

Why would a 4ft ramp section weigh around 150 lbs??

Browsing online stores for truck ramps I find longer ramps for less than half that weight, and U.S. made (not cheap import) with retail prices less than $350.

A aluminum ramp capable of supporting 1,000-2,000 lbs is probably 35-55lbs.
A carbon fiber ramp capable of supporting 750 lbs is probably 15-20lbs.

If Tesla mass produced a folding carbon fiber ramp it would probably weigh less than 20lbs and cost less than $1,000.
