This tug-of-war video pits a Tesla Model 3 RWD up against the mighty Chevrolet Silverado Duramax pickup truck. The Model 3 faces a far lighter turbocharged Can-Am Maverick X3 too. The Tesla should be no match for the big truck, but the Can-Am matchup seems interesting to us.
The turbocharged Can-Am Maverick X3 puts out a minimum of 120 bhp (but it can be optioned up to 195 bhp). Its weight appears to be 670 kg (1,470 lbs) or so. This is far lighter than the Model 3 at 1,645 kg (3,627 lbs).
Meanwhile, the big Chevy Silverado Duramax likely outputs about 445 bhp and over 900 pound-feet of torque and weighs in at well over 3,175 kg (7,000 lbs).
We won't spoil the results though, so you'll have to check out the video to see how these tug-of-war battles play out.
There's been no shortage of new tug-of-war videos ever since the Tesla Cybertruck beat the Ford F-150 pickup truck in a tug-of-war challenge that was first shown at the Cybertruck's debut. It seems that face-off brought new life to this pulling competition. Check out some of the most popular ones below:
We should note that tug-of-war challenges don't prove much and that towing ability is not connected to these tug-offs. It's just a fun, very non-scientific way to see if one vehicle can move another.
