This is not an ideal comparison. Ford is putting a bandage on their issue and saying, look we made it better now. Still an ICE vehicle. Ford should just focus on BEV now and not hybrid. CT all stainless body BEV, everything else is icing on my cake. Enough said.
Ford has announced Hybrid, PHEV, and EV versions of the F-150 (and a number of variants of the Explorer with varying levels of electrification, too). And, of course, they're happy to keep selling ICE vehicles.

Ford isn't on a mission to create a low-carbon economy. Ford just wants to sell you a truck, and they don't much care what kind of truck you buy -- just so long as Ford makes it and your check doesn't bounce.

Considering where Ford is in the automotive landscape, this is a pretty sensible business move.

Sensible? Yes.

Inspiring? Not so much.

Still now comparison. SS body and tough glass along with a battery and motor that will last at least 5 times longer than a Ford is a non starter. Cybertruck wins hands down.
Agreed - the 2 aren't remotely in the same league.

I have to be honest, I started reading some of the stats posted then I remembered none of them matter to me.
For me my choice of vehicle is more about how it makes me feel than how much weight it can carry. I drive an F150 now and its boring. It has a nice appearance package and looks nice but its nothing special. The CT is special... its a freakin space ship lol.
Its like when I see car commercials and they try to show how advanced they are cause of a back up camera or blind spot alert. It makes me laugh now because when you start looking at Tesla you start to see what advanced really is.
I am probably like most truck owners, the capabilities exceed my needs. The reason I can't wait to move on from my ICE F150 to my CT is because its a damn space ship lol.
