Ford just bumped up on the news with these concept drawings. It looks like they may have a slight crush on the Cybertruck. So, would you like your Cybertruck with twist of Ford Juice?

I feel like, other than the Front logo area, the exterior is probably very similar to what Tesla had in mind when they said if they Cybertruck fails, they'll just build a regular truck. If you added some sail pillars, changed the entire front to the Cybertruck design and added some more sharp edges, I'd say they look pretty similar

The one thing I actually do like about this truck though, is the mini fridge drawer that the front can be. It would however need an option to just turn that off and be a regular frunk so i'm not always draining my battery, but even on the cybertruck i'm hoping I can drain water from the frunk so I can fill it with ice and beer.

To be honest... not really. I've had fords and I don't really like where the legacy automakers are going or their current sales structure, etc... Part of the excitement for me as far as the cybertruck goes is the fact that it is Tesla which breaks the mold. If I wasn't buying a cybertruck, I'd be buying a Rivian. I'm done with the same old same old...

Said another way, I don't think Ford, Chevy, etc. have anything to offer that I'm interested in. Especially after hearing all that the CT offers...

Futuristic Ford ‘F-E50’ concept proves the age of the Tesla Cybertruck is here



The Tesla Cybertruck’s design may be controversial due to its unapologetically futuristic Cyberpunk elements, but even after its eventful unveiling, speculations were abounding among the EV community that the radical pickup truck may end up being the first of a new breed of vehicles. A recently shared futuristic take on Ford’s best-selling truck, the F-150, shows that this may soon be the case. Like it or not, it seems like the Age of the Cybertruck is coming, and there’s little that can be done to stop it.

California-based vehicle designer Glen George recently shared his take on what an all-electric version of the F-150 could look like. Aptly dubbed as the “Ford F-E50,” the concept depicts a vehicle that carries a lot of the F-150’s trademark elements while showcasing the potential features inherent in an all-electric design. Up front lies a traditional F-150 Raptor grille, as well as the “Ford” badge in big, bold letters. Even the rear of the F-E50 concept carries the traditional tail lights of the F-150.

A sketch of the F-E50 concept’s features shows that the vehicle will have several functions that optimize the pickup’s all-electric nature. Among these is a spacious cabin thanks to the lack of an internal combustion engine as well as dedicated features for camping and transporting items like bikes. There’s even a fridge on the grille. Interestingly enough, the windshield of the F-E50 also slopes down smoothly into the hood, just like the Cybertruck.

Overall, the Ford F-E50 concept shows elements that look similar to the Cybertruck’s XY design. This was despite the designer not listing the Cybertruck in the Ford F-E50 concept’s reference cars. Instead, cars cited for the design included the all-electric Lordstown Endurance, the Neuron T/ONE, and the electric/hydrogen Nikola Badger. Ford Authority, for its part, noted that despite the F-E150’s unique design, the concept remains more palatable than the Tesla Cybertruck.

“Like it or not, this Ford EV truck looks much more palatable than the Tesla Cybertruck, that’s for sure. And it’s also designed to be quite useful, with features including a mini-fridge drawer that extends from the front end, a bed-mounted pop-up camper, and an integrated bike rack inside the bed,” the publication noted.

Ford intends to release an all-electric version of the F-150 in the next few years, though the company has alluded to the vehicle utilizing the traditional pickup look. However, as the auto market transitions into a new age of car designs where efficiency and practicality are top priorities, radical vehicles like the Tesla Cybertruck may become the norm. When this happens, it would not be surprising if Ford ends up releasing its own XY-themed pickup as well. Perhaps even one that looks somewhat similar to George’s F-E50 concept.

Isn't that just this with FORD on it?
I mean, if you take a look at a lot of trucks out there, the biggest difference i usually see between them is often the logo. Take the logo away and 99% of the time I won't be able to tell between a Ford, Ram, or Chevy from the same year

Let's hope all current and future manufacturers remember that two trucks will be needed. 1.) The current CyberTruck and Atlis type vehicle that can tow at least 14,000#gvw and has long range capability, this is needed to convert the work truck individuals and fleets from ice to electric. 2.) Then the little fun trucks for in town commuting, the hobbyists and the fun seekers.

FORD BIG WIGS "Hahaha look how stoopid the cybertruck looks!!"

FORD Design department " Oh my god.. copy everything you can and slap a FORD logo on it!"

I know this isnt really a FORD design.. but this happens all the time in design. I remember the legacy automakers hated on Tesla large touch screen... now go look at all the large touch screens on dealer lots.
