Obviously the Tesla Cybertruck won't be as large as that first official teaser image where it was carrying a F-150 in its bed, but what don't even know yet is if it's going to be a full-size or midsize pickup. What size truck are you guys hoping it is?

I'm like my F-150's size for utility and ride height but sometimes wish it was a bit smaller for easier parking in shopping centers. But a Ranger sized truck would be too small for me. Maybe it'll come in as something sized right in between which would be perfect!

This is that first official teaser image. One thing's for sure is it won't be this size lol.

It’s supposed to be big because Elon had once said that “You won’t need a special commercial truck license, but I think it should be required...lol” How big it will be...who knows

I'm thinking probably F250 / Ram 2500 sized but with F450 / Ram 3500 performance for hauling / payload and Model X acceleration.

It would be nice to see the bed having capability to self level when parked. It would be possible with air suspension and good ground clearance, which I am quite sure the truck will be equipped with.

@NorCalAthlete Looks like it will have Full-Size capabilities with Mid-Size length. It makes sense as per your insight.

I'd tentatively say it may be even smaller - 1/2 ton size rather than 3/4 ton - with 1-ton capability. I don't think it'll quite drop all the way to mid-size though (Colorado, Canyon, Dakota, etc). And yes I know you meant F250 / 3/4 ton size with your "mid-size length" just thought I'd clarify my prediction here.

This cab forward aesthetic first I saw was in the mid 80’s in a SLC design center. Its silhouette and profile continue currency even though body-on-frame is deprecated, haunches and flares abandoned. Its silhouette effectively profiles Tesla Semi or other mini-me high cube applications that need a blunt entry form factor.

Cyber exoskeletal architecture isn’t one size fits all, its a pivot to engineering first culture. Tesla could execute a mini-me of its Cyber in smaller subcompact size. Semi in van, box, bus or sprinter applications on a BEV platform would address floor and load deck space constraints. But that’s not enough to compete for FORD, AMAZON and Fedex.

DOJO would have to solve traveling salesman on-the-fly to augment its Cyber vehicles for delivery, multi-modal enterprises.
