  1. Practically The Same Size🤣

    As a MINI owner myself, I hope the R1T is a lot more fun to drive. That said, I really really want an all-electric MINI convertible with dual motor AWD, 300 mile range and 0-60 in 3.5s or better. That would be too fun to pass up. I was so looking forward to the electric MINI, but they...
  2. Rivian R1T vs Modified Jeep Gladiator side-by-side

    ...And the Gladiator in this comparison also has upgraded tires and a lift, not stock height or on stock 33" tires listed in the spec comparison. Jeep does offer an OEM upgrade to 35" but I think this is aftermarket and those might be 37" tires. The 20" AT tires on the R1T are 275/65-20, which...
  3. Rivian R1T vs Modified Jeep Gladiator side-by-side

    ...and the R1T has a max height of 78.2" with the 20" AT Tires and suspension in the off-road drive modes, which is not referenced in that comparison you linked. All these comparison pics where the R1T is parked next to a Jeep/Hummer/Tacoma/F150/Whatever all have the R1T in low/parking...
  4. CarPlay?

    Either QNX or Linux, but pretty sure it's QNX... Have not got my hands on it personally and I have not seen any specific reports from the perspective of what their infotainment is built on. QNX seems the logical choice since it's the go-to in the auto industry and has been for a long time...
  5. Kia EV 6 reservation page is live

    The Hyundai Ioniq is available as both a hybrid and an all-electric and probably what you're thinking of. The new Ioniq 5 is not. It's just starting to make rounds in a couple foreign markets, but it's not quite the same as the US release. They have not set the USA pricing yet and still...
  6. CarPlay?

    Rivian does not restrict you to Spotify and FM radio. They have Spotify as the only one integrated at this time as their preferred streaming service. Personally, I don’t like Spotify at all. Won’t use it. You can select playlists, tracks, whatnot through the interface to control any...
  7. Looking to purchase your Launch Edition

    That’s a great question regarding the deposit. In my situation I’m not worried about such things as the guy I made the deal with is local and we’re still chatting on other things. So I’m lucky in that regard.
  8. Doug DeMuro: Rivian R1T OFF-ROAD: The Good and The Bad

    We are supposed to get individual wheel tire pressure info in the displays at some point. The TPMS system is there. Keep in mind this is a pre-production demo truck (I think?) that they keep having all these reviewers drive. It’s essentially final, but not fully refined with the software. As...
  9. Rivian CS: R1T Adventure Package deliveries start March 2022. Non-LE pre-order holder delivery window emails coming by end of year

    I have heard from two separate sources that Rivian CS people have said max packs would be prioritized once available. Not sure what that means specifically and of course it’s only hearsay, if it’s even correct. When I talked to a guy at Rivian customer support today about account stuff they...
  10. Jump starting an ICE vehicle from the power port?

    Tesla and the VW/Porsche EV’s are the same way, don’t attach to the 12V battery to jump another vehicle. The small 12V lithium batteries they use are not up to the task. They’re really just a buffer and power supply for the onboard 12V systems which recharges off the main pack. At this point...
  11. Doug Demuro Review: The Rivian R1T Is the Coolest Pickup Truck Ever Made

    With the way these all get driven for the demo events, I’m sure that plays into the range numbers we’re seeing. OTOH, this is also why I’m not compromising on the max pack. Range is still hugely important and more so in an EV that is designed to go off the beaten path.
  12. Doug Demuro Review: The Rivian R1T Is the Coolest Pickup Truck Ever Made

    Air vent controls on the screen is just fine unless you're a person who likes to continuously fidget with their position. We set the vents in our Model Y a year and a half ago when we got it and haven't changed it after fine tuning over the first week. I'm glad they didn't copy Tesla's wiper...
  13. Looking to purchase your Launch Edition

    I was going to wait until Monday before asking, but sitting here with nothing to do I called. Got the same general info -- they don't care what we do with our reservations/accounts, change any or all information. There is nothing locking these accounts to anyone at this time until they move to...
  14. Looking to purchase your Launch Edition

    Everything is in order as far as I can tell. I’m going to ask Rivian a question or two come Monday. We did a simple bill of sale/contract for the transfer and if there’s any difficulty with the transfer, he‘s supposed to assist or refund me. As for the deposit payment, it still shows the...

    …Never ask for permission, always beg for forgiveness. She would’ve said no. Unfortunately, she’s probably right (as usual). I have a hunch that I won’t be using this reservation and I’ll be letting my brother take it. Terms say it’s not allowed without their permission, but guy who...
  16. Doug Demuro Review: The Rivian R1T Is the Coolest Pickup Truck Ever Made

    You should email Doug so he can edit that in. I also felt he missed the opportunity to mention stowing kidnapped children under the rear seat or how the gear guard cables can double as restraint locks.
  17. Doug Demuro Review: The Rivian R1T Is the Coolest Pickup Truck Ever Made

    Makes sense about the Lightning, I guess I wasn’t thinking about him not driving it. It’s like his review of the Maverick. It was a terrible review for Doug, but he had limited time to do this thing as they were giving media people a small window of time with the truck before they had to move...
  18. Looking to purchase your Launch Edition

    And mine is a done deal. I now have an LE R1T in my name with a March delivery estimate. For those of you looking, I just want to say I didn’t really have any luck here on these forums, not that I tried very hard. Those here are the core enthusiasts and may have more personal connections with...
  19. Doug Demuro Review: The Rivian R1T Is the Coolest Pickup Truck Ever Made

    …Higher than all the others. Makes me wonder if it’s still an out of 10 rating or if this one is different. If it’s still a 5 out of 10, what does he think gets a 10? I’m surprised he didn’t have the Lightning in the DougScore comparison. I do have one issue with his DougScore ratings…. How...
  20. Looking to purchase your Launch Edition

    Sure there are. Many people looking to sell outside this forum. I know I said I was going to wait, but I made a deal for one today. Agreed to terms and will get it sorted tomorrow.. If I don’t use it and still wait for my max pack, my brother will use the reservation. I think a lot of...
