Ram introduced this unique and impressive setup almost 5 years ago, so it's nothing new in the truck world.
Elon Musk touts the Tesla Cybertruck's active suspension setup as game-changing, but it turns out that Ram introduced a similar system back in 2016. Will they be the same? Let's take a look at how the setup works on the Ram 1500 and see if that's what Musk is suggesting we'll see in the Cybertruck.
First, let's start with the latest Musk tweet on the topic:

From the tweet, Musk seems to be implying that the Cybertruck will be game-changing due to its active suspension. However, Musk presumably isn't aware of the fact that Ram introduced this setup on its 1500 pickup truck as an option dating back to at least 2016.
