    Photos From Rivian Venice Hub Welcome Event 10/16

    As someone who has yet to go to that part of L.A., what's the parking situation like?

    Rivian Improvements Over Your Current Vehicle?

    One of the main reasons I'm looking forward to the Rivian is when I move back to Colorado in two years, I'll never be more than an hour's drive from a charger, thanks to the deal they've inked with the state parks. With the RTT and the camp kitchen, there will never be an excuse to not go...

    Photos From Rivian Venice Hub Welcome Event 10/16

    Does anyone know if the vehicles will be on permanent display there? If so, I foresee a trip down to Venice in the very, very near future. Edit: Even if they're not, a chance to check out the interior and exterior samples might be worth it alone, just so I can stop messing with the...

    Official Rivian Stories: A Space To Gather - First Hub Opens @ Venice, CA

    Definitely interested in hearing how your visit goes. Venice is about a 3 hour drive for me, but I'd totally drive down to check It out if it's worthwhile.

    Tesla Files Extended Complaint against Rivian Battery Tech

    I'm a big fan of Tesla's cars, but the company seems to be putting me off more and more as time goes on. I'm definitely glad they exist and have moved the needle on EV adoption, but it's great to have the competition coming along that we do. Hopefully these are just baseless accusations.

    Videos: Rivian infotainment touchscreen display response & Forest Edge Interior

    I have yet to see any of them in person, but FE plus silver might be a good combo. FE looks somewhat like a grey-green, to me.

    Videos: Rivian infotainment touchscreen display response & Forest Edge Interior

    Well, dammit. Guess I'm changing my configuration AGAIN. El Cap + FE interior would look pretty amazing, no?

    R1T Reviews Master List: JRE, Rivian Stories, Jalopnik, Inside EVs, KBB, Roadshow, ETC

    Not a video, but: https://arstechnica.com/cars/2021/09/rivians-67-500-314-mile-electric-adventure-truck-put-to-the-test/ Some good pictures. Nothing terribly new, I think, but still, very good in Dr. Gitlin's eyes.

    Motortrend Drives the 2022 Rivian R1T Off-Road Across the Trans-America Trail

    Between the tax credit, a trade-in, and the money I had already saved up for a Model 3, it's not that big of a stretch. Not to mention the money I'll save on gas, maintenance, etc. I used to drive BMWs, so I'm well acquainted with foolishly spending money.😂

    Motortrend Drives the 2022 Rivian R1T Off-Road Across the Trans-America Trail

    Well, I learned a few things from this article: 1. I made the right choice in getting a Rivian and selecting the R1T. 2. I'm glad I put my reservation in a few months ago, as little as that helps. 3. It looks like waypoints are built into the nav system (see the picture where it has legs...

    Get your kicks on Route 66

    I grew up near the old Route 66 in Missouri. You would always see a lot of interesting vehicles making the trek. There's a lot of the old "Americana" style tourist attractions peppered along the road. Makes me nostalgic for all the road trips I took with my dad. Semi-related to Route 66...

    Motor Trend Review: The 2022 Rivian R1T Is the Most Remarkable Pickup We’ve Ever Driven

    I read that in Doug's voice. Spot on with his speaking mannerisms.

    My footage from R1T ride with RJ (raw footage)

    Awesome videos! What sticks out the most to me is how quiet it is. There's a distinct lack of squeaks or rattles as the R1T goes over all that uneven terrain. If that is the fit and finish quality of the pre-production models, buying an R1T is going to be money well spent!

    Official Video: How Does it Feel to Drive a Rivian (Featuring Preorder Holders)

    @DuckTruck, Thanks for sharing all this information. It makes me wish I'd known about Rivian and pre-ordered sooner. Now I have to play the waiting game and it's that much more difficult. 😭 On the other hand, much more time to hem and haw over paint choices. So glad you got to experience...

    Official Video: How Does it Feel to Drive a Rivian (Featuring Preorder Holders)

    Y'all some salty mofo's in this thread. 😆 I like how the colors look in the lower light conditions. Still need to get eyes on them in real life to make a final decision. Looks like everyone was having fun, though.

    F-150 Lighting Impressions from Sandy Munro

    While I'm looking forward to the tear down, it's a shame they'll be doing it to a Launch Edition. :confused:

    Real Rivian Photos & Videos

    Good catch! I just went on Rivian's site and played with the configurator. The black mirror caps are indeed an Explore package feature. Shows you how much I considered the Explore package! 😆

    Interesting that the mirror caps don't match the body color on this one, unlike all the pictures on the website. I certainly hope this isn't a production change.

    Well this sucks... (and a BIG conundrum).

    It looks like most of your gear was spared at least. :confused: Any chance you can get a loaner from a friend or family? It would suck to buy a new (to you) vehicle to only need it for six to eight months. I don't envy your situation. Remember the good times, though.

    Off Road Range for EV? Jeep 4xe Review / Comparison from TFL

    Actually, reading Ms. Hall's article makes me feel better. I won't be doing anything remotely like the Rebelle Rally (not at first anyways,) so I should be more than safe when I go out. My main concerns are charging deserts on rural U.S. highways. I like to avoid Interstate travel when I can.
