Tesla Cybertruck vs Rivian R1T vs Ford Bronco Hill Climb Challenge
This video comes from PT on YouTube. It captures a rather serious off-roading challenge between these three prominent off-roaders. For the first attempt, they use the Ford Bronco. There is a steep incline at an angle. The SUVs are supposed to turn extreme right and climb onto this rocky surface. The surface is quite slippery and the rocks are placed in such a manner that it is difficult to get enough traction. The Bronco, after briefly struggling, is able to easily climb onto the top.

Then comes the Rivian R1T. There is minor tyre squeaking with every SUV. Once the drivers climb the initial slope, the surface has undulations replicating speed breakers on a slope. These further cause the tyres to slip. But the Rivian also manages to reach the top without any fuss. However, the Cybertruck is clearly struggling in the initial phase. What’s more interesting is the fact that it even struggled in each section right up to the top. Therefore, while all SUVs were able to make it to the top, the Cybertruck struggled the most.
