  1. I’m backkkkk. What do you want to see / know?

    Now that I think about it, I'm surprised that only the front has tow hooks with the Off-Road package. Seems like they would have put some on the rear too so the Rivian can tow others out of trouble. Trailer hitch isn't practical for that. Most off-road inspired vehicles have tow hooks in back too.
  2. I’m backkkkk. What do you want to see / know?

    Yeah, truck is great, but damn thing doesn't fit my PORTABLE fridge, so can't buy it. Have to wait years for someone to spend billions of dollars to design a new truck that will fit my PORTABLE fridge because there's no damn way I'm replacing that PORTABLE fridge!!
  3. I’m backkkkk. What do you want to see / know?

    I want to see or know how much power is available from the 110 outlets in the truck? Is it capable of just charging small items, like a phone or laptop, or can you plug in items that demand more power? Such as a microwave, hair dryer, portable air conditioner? Trying to determine how useful...
  4. Rivian R1T vs F-150 Raptor vs Jeep Wrangler side-by-side

    I love the look of the Raptor. Always been a fan of more aggressive, sporty appearance. Rivian looks pretty subtle by comparison. Which of course, many will prefer.
  5. Rants and Raves after 2 months of Rivian R1T ownership [DISCLAIMER: Unauthorized feedback from non-owner]

    This sure isn't like a Tesla site full of fanboi's, where if you criticize even a spec of dirt on the nose, they'll attack you for it. On flip side, amazing to see so many saying they're willing to delay their delivery or happy that it's later, etc, etc. All based on ONE, owner's experience...
  6. Videos: Rivian Driving in Snow - Night & Daytime

    Wow, this owner was nice enough to post a video we haven't had the luxury of seeing and so many have negative comments right off the top. To the OP, thank you. I enjoyed seeing the video. Curious, how was the range in the snow / cold weather?
  7. F-150 Lightning announced pricing pushing buyers to Rivian

    The Chevy reveal will help Rivian too. Chevy is reasonably competitively priced with the Ford. At $105,000, it's more than Ford's highest offering, but is absolutely a superior vehicle that was designed to be an EV rather than Ford's ICE conversion that will be outdated in 2 years. In any case...
  8. Meet the new SilvErado!

    Common misconception. Tesla is NOT a "luxury" car. Gets compared to them because of similar price points. It's a technological marvel, but FAR from "Luxury". And that's if you're talking about a Model S or X. The Model 3 isn't anywhere near. Model S has a couple of items that might qualify, but...
  9. Meet the new SilvErado!

    I guess I got in early! I was able to refresh about 1 minute before the clock ran out and the page was up. I ended up with a reservation number in the 13,000 range. And was able to reserve the First Edition. First time I've had success doing so with a GM product. Tried to do it with the Hummer...
  10. Meet the new SilvErado!

    I don't know about that. My literature says you have to call the dealer to get the deposit back.
  11. F-150 Lightning announced pricing pushing buyers to Rivian

    The articles could be wrong, but I specifically read that $40,000 is including the 400 mile range battery and that a lower priced version will become available at some point, with a lower capacity battery. We know how good "journalists" are these days!! LOL
  12. F-150 Lightning announced pricing pushing buyers to Rivian

    Absolutely agree. I think what most will be unhappy about is the forced option packages that jack up the price. It took away any mid-range options for people. Get the stripped $40,000 version, or spend nearly twice that to get an XLT with an extended range battery. Chevy just said their work...
  13. F-150 Lightning announced pricing pushing buyers to Rivian

    If that's what the Silverado is going to look like, SOLD! I'll take one. Given, it's probably a year or two away, so I'll still buy the Rivian either way, assuming I can get one next (oops, now, this year), then consider selling it once the GMC is available and assuming it truly is a 400 mile...
  14. Anyone else completely disappointed that MaxPack battery not available until 2023?

    I agree, his/her estimates are a bit exaggerated. Would really have to be the worst of the worst possible conditions and aggressive driving thrown in (unlikely if the conditions are that bad) for it to only get 100 miles in range. Maybe towing. An EV isn't going to be for everyone. Those in...
  15. Anyone else completely disappointed that MaxPack battery not available until 2023?

    I don't think it has to do anything with the preorder list or what order they were taken in. It's simply due to the fact that they haven't yet figured out the max pack. There's been no info on them testing one or any word what so ever. That indicates that, while it is their intention to build a...
  16. Anyone else completely disappointed that MaxPack battery not available until 2023?

    Depends on how quickly you'd like to get the vehicle. You certainly have two options that put you toward the end of the line. If you choose to go with the smaller "large pack", you'll save $10,000. If you are doing to speed up the time frame in which you will get it, then can donate $5,500 back...
  17. PORTABLE REFRIGERATORS for Rivians -- 12V or 110V??

    Depending on how big of one you need, if you get the gear tunnel shuttle, I like the idea of finding a lower profile one that will fit in there and be accessible through the pass-thru opening in the back seat. When you need it at a camp site, slide it out. Otherwise, good for storing drinks that...
  18. PORTABLE REFRIGERATORS for Rivians -- 12V or 110V??

    Definitely surprised Rivian didn't include more outlets in the frunk and bed. Ford I think has 4 110/120 outlets in both. 110 would be very useful in the frunk for a lot of people. Bed, being the largest space, should have at least a couple, plus a 12V outlet for things that might need to be...
  19. What's so $pecial About "Rivian Blue"

    I have the same question for the pricing of wheel upgrades. $3,500 to go to a smaller 20" black wheel? Wow. They charge these premiums for one reason, not cost.....because they can! As far as wheels go, I'll take the 21's at no cost and go buy a set of custom wheels and tires for around $2,500...
  20. Anyone else completely disappointed that MaxPack battery not available until 2023?

    How many really "need" 400 miles of range? 300 miles is a long way. Longer than my bladder can go. EV's still aren't the most practical for long distance travel. If you're someone that travels over 1,000 miles on a regular basis, EV's probably aren't the best option, yet. However, for daily...
