The hype of the cyber truck is already booming, Tesla has already received more than 200,000 orders after the truck was revealed. In an awkward presentation, Musk took direct shots at the automaker and showed the Cybertruck beating the F-150 in a tug-of-war.

Ford responded, that Tesla’s video showing its latest truck beating an F-150 in a tug-of-war might not have been completely fair.
It was reported in Business Insider that, Sunny Madra, who leads Ford X stated, “Hey @elonmusk sends us a Cybertruck and we will do the apples to apple test for you.”
Ford executive tweet appears to be the first time since Tesla reveals that a Ford executive has publicly discussed the Cybertruck. Elon Musk responded to the tweet on Monday afternoon stating, “Bring it on”.

Earlier this year ford revealed an F-150 prototype and soon plans to launch its own line of electric vehicles.
Business Insider reported that The Cybertruck will be able to tow over 14,000 pounds, Tesla says, while the 2020 F-150 can tow up to 13,200 pounds. Moreover, the F-150 starts at $28,496, while the Cybertruck starts at $39,900.
It is still not sure if Tesla is going to meet the challenge, but it has surely given heat to the truck manufacturer.
