It looks like Ford is the one who’s backing down. According to a statement provided to TechCrunch by the company, Ford did not care about the challenge.

Sunny’s tweet was just a joke about the absurdity of the Tesla video, and that’s all. With 42 years of America’s best-selling trucks, we’ve focused on serving our pickup customers, no matter what others say or do. We look forward to next year’s brand new F-150 hybrid and a few years later the all-electric F-150.

– Ford.

Perhaps Ford realized that it might not be a good idea to have the F-150 face off with Cybertruck.
