The Rivian R1T did the exact same off-road course as the Cybertruck and the result is outstanding.
If you’re unsure whether you want to buy a Cybertruck or a Rivian, this video may help you make up your mind.
WATCH THE RIVIAN R1T TAKE ON THE FAMOUS ‘STAIR STEPS’ IN THE VIDEO BELOW!
The Cybertruck took on the famous ‘stair steps’ in the Gabilan Mountains in California last month and it did well… but not great.
The Hollister Hills adventure sparked comments on social media because, according to some viewers, the Cybertruck was apparently struggling with what most people consider a low-difficulty climb.
The Cybertruck was seen stopping and restarting several times during the climb.
And people were wondering what was going on.
Fans saw the video, but Rivian saw it, too.
And they decided to take their truck to California’s Hollister Hills to test it out.
As you can see from the clip, the Rivian did better than the Cybertruck.
Ford CEO Jim Farley will certainly be happy about the Cybertruck’s struggle to tackle the hill.
Time and again, he’s been quoted saying that the Cybertruck isn’t a truck for people who do “real work”, and it’s just for Silicon Valley people.
That remains to be seen.
However, what is undoubtedly true is no truck has generated the same amount of hype as the Cybertruck.
With the long-awaited Delivery Event just around the corner, people are getting excited.
Just days ago, drone pilot Joe Tegtmeyer was able to photograph a massive amount of castings for the Cybertruck at Giga Texas.

This looks promising, as it probably means Tesla is finally ready to ramp up production.
And they need to.
Because, so far, Tesla has amassed over 1.9 million (!) pre-orders for the truck.
