The Tesla Cybertruck uses self-leveling suspension which compensates for Cybertruck 2021 variable load and some models feature all-wheel drive. Other standard features include on-board power inverters for supplying both 120 and 240-volt electricity, allowing use of power tools with no portable generator. An air compressor for powering pneumatic tools is included. The outside stainless steel sheet-metal is bullet-resistant. All vehicles will even include Tesla Autopilot, and will have the hardware capabilities for fully autonomous operation. Elon Musk indicated that there will be a solar roof option which would add 15 miles of range per day. The EPA array of the Cybertruck is estimated to range from 250–500 miles (400–800 km), according to configuration selections.

The rear middle seat folds down to allow loading long cargo extending in to the cab from the vault. The "marble look" dashboard of the unveil prototype vehicle was a document composite material produced from "paper, wood-based fibers, natural wood pigments and non-petroleum based resins.
In accordance with Musk, the look of the Cybertruck was inspired by Blade Runner and the Lotus Esprit driven by James Bond in The Spy Who Loved Me, which doubled as a submarine. The Cybertruck 2021 uses unibody construction (termed an "exoskeleton" by Tesla). similar to passenger cars, as opposed to the body-on-frame construction which is typical of trucks, as a regular vehicle frame would conflict with the under-floor battery pack. It uses unusually thick 3 mm (1⁄8 in) 30x-series cold-rolled metal body panels, which cannot be stamped like conventional automobile parts. The panels can only be bent along straight lines, producing a very distinctive faceted design that has been called "low-poly" or likened to origami. This material is the exact same material SpaceX uses on their Starship, as it distributes stress more evenly and permits more interior volume. Earlier design concepts for Cybertruck had included using titanium for the outer panels, but this is later switched to stainless for additional strength, utilizing an alloy that has been developed in-house by Tesla.
The powertrain for the dual motor AWD version is comparable to the 2019 and newer "Raven" Tesla Model S and Model X, which have an inductive rear motor and the Model 3's permanent-magnet motor in front. Other versions are single-motor rear-wheel drive, or tri-motor with one front and two rear motors. Just like other Tesla models, the Cybertruck could be pre-ordered with Full Self-Driving software upgrade, adding an additional US$10,000 to the buying price of the configuration.
The Cybertruck unveiling event was covered heavily by traditional media and online blogs/social media. In social media marketing, many commentators expressed dislike of the sharp contours and unusual exterior of the Cybertruck. Tesla, Inc. stock was down 6% after the Cybertruck announcement. Additionally, a video of the Cybertruck pulling a rear-wheel-drive Ford F-150 uphill in a tug of war led to 14,000 comments and 619,000 likes on Twitter. Various news outlets described this is not a consequence of superior horsepower or torque, but merely as a result of Cybertruck being heavier, both which still neglect to say the more specific impulse and thus torque given by an electrical motor.
