This is a big question for me. ACC with a competent LKAS that has no geographical restrictions is something I use and want to keep using. Everyone else seems to offer this, so hopefully it’s not locked away in Rivian vehicles.
TIL people want to not pay attention when driving. Knowing your speed is one of the most basic requirements. Adaptive Cruise Control isn’t holding you back unless you’re already unaware of your surroundings and exercising poor driving judgement.
I get where you’re coming from, and I tend to agree that choice/options are generally preferred…. But in the absence of that choice, Adaptive Cruise Control does provide some relief and allow you to effectively ”go with the flow” without holding the skinny pedal.
My reading of the manual leaves me with the impression that one-pedal-driving WILL be supported in the optional/configurable high regen mode.

Actually, we do know, now, since the Owners Manual is posted on Rivian.com. They 120V outlets are limited to 1500W.
The manual also states that there are two 12V batteries between the frunk and cab. I don’t recall it specifying the chemistry type. I would assume they are at least AGM, but...
I’m fine with employees getting early deliveries, but I don’t consider these to be production deliveries. When RJ confirmed deliveries would begin in September I interpreted that to mean to actual paying customers without employment/funding links to Rivian.
