Tesla Cybertruck Is ‘Heinously Ugly, But Also Plain Cool,’ Doug DeMuro Says In Review

The Tesla Cybertruck is one of the most talked about cars in the world, thanks in no small part to its controversial design. You either hate it or love it.

The angular pickup has been in production for a few months, and several reviews have come out since last year’s rather bland delivery event, including our own, where we found out that Tesla’s truck didn’t exactly rise to the expectations. Now though, it’s Doug DeMuro, car reviewer, YouTuber extraordinaire, and friend of InsideEVs, who had a go in the Cybertruck.

Doug DeMuro on the Cybertruck

Despite its “heinously ugly” design, the Tesla Cybertruck is “just plain cool,” car lover and YouTuber Doug DeMuro said in his review of the angular pickup. Towing, payload capacity, and other “truck stuff” don’t matter when everybody turns their heads to check out a Cybertruck driving down the street, DeMuro argues.

In the 40-minute video embedded at the top of this page, Doug lays out all the quirks and features of the car, as he usually does, mentioning that the Cybertruck doesn’t have the so-called Autopilot and Full Self-Driving assistance systems. However, the pickup does have adaptive cruise control but the steering is controlled by the driver, and the two aforementioned advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS) will supposedly come at a later date through a software update, together with the ability to (virtually) lock the differentials.

Driving the Cybertruck is pretty much the same as with any other car, the main difference being the presence of the steer-by-wire system which has a dynamic steering ratio. But once you get used to that, you’re good to go, in Doug’s opinion.

When it comes to truck stuff, like towing, payload capacity, and general usefulness, the YouTuber says that it doesn’t matter. None of it matters because the Cybertruck has become a car that’s bought by people who want to look cool. There’s no other car on the planet that looks as crazy as Tesla’s pickup and that–Doug says–upset people who own performance pickups like the Ford Raptor and RAM TRX.

The Tesla Cybertruck has “insane performance,” “insane looks,” and it is made by a company that’s “run by an insane person,” but at the end of the day, it’s “just plain cool.”

Tesla Cybertruck Is ‘Heinously Ugly, But Also Plain⁤ Cool,’ Doug DeMuro Says In Review

The‍ unveiling of‌ the Tesla‌ Cybertruck in November 2019 sparked mixed ​reactions among car enthusiasts and the general public. With its ⁤unconventional design and futuristic features, the ⁤Cybertruck has polarized opinions like⁤ few other vehicles in recent memory. In a ⁣recent review, automotive journalist Doug DeMuro shared ⁤his thoughts⁤ on the controversial electric truck, labeling it as ‘heinously ugly, but ⁣also plain cool.’

DeMuro, known for ‍his in-depth car reviews on ⁢YouTube and other platforms, did not shy away from critiquing the​ Cybertruck’s unconventional design. With its angular lines, sharp edges, and stainless steel body, the Cybertruck looks⁤ like it belongs in a sci-fi movie rather than on​ the streets. DeMuro described the ⁢truck as⁣ “unapologetically brutalist” and noted that it is unlike anything else on the market.

Despite its divisive appearance, DeMuro was quick to praise the Cybertruck for its innovative features and impressive performance. The all-electric ⁢truck boasts impressive‍ specifications, including a range of over ‍500 miles, the‍ ability to go from 0 ‍to ‌60 mph in ⁣under 2.9⁢ seconds, and the capacity to tow over 14,000⁢ pounds. DeMuro highlighted these capabilities as evidence of‌ Tesla’s commitment to pushing the⁤ boundaries of what an electric vehicle can achieve.

In terms of functionality, ​DeMuro found the Cybertruck to be‌ well-designed and practical. The truck’s unique exoskeleton‌ structure provides excellent durability and protection, while the spacious interior offers⁤ ample room for passengers‌ and cargo. DeMuro noted that the truck’s adaptive air suspension system and ​off-road capabilities make it ⁢a versatile option for a​ wide range of ⁢driving conditions.

Ultimately, DeMuro ⁤concluded⁤ that ​the Tesla Cybertruck is a vehicle that defies traditional norms ⁣and expectations.​ While its appearance may not be to⁤ everyone’s ⁤taste, its performance ⁣and features set it apart as a true trailblazer in the ‌automotive industry. ⁢DeMuro’s review serves as a ⁣reminder that innovation often comes in unconventional forms,⁢ and that sometimes, it’s okay to‍ be a little ugly if ​it means being exceptionally cool.

As Tesla continues to push the boundaries of electric vehicles⁤ with the Cybertruck, it remains to be seen how the public will respond to this​ bold and daring design. Whether it becomes a symbol ‌of the future of transportation or a quirky footnote in automotive history, the⁣ Cybertruck is⁢ undeniably a vehicle that ⁤sparks conversation and challenges perceptions. Love it or⁣ hate ⁤it, the Cybertruck’s impact on⁣ the automotive world is already undeniable.
