    The One Dealbreakers Thread to Rule Them All

    Well I must have missed that official statement at the LA auto show debut. I pretty clearly remember one of their engineers saying Level 3 was included and full self driving would be an option. We talked for a good 10 minutes just about that and how lidar was making it possible. Fair enough. I...

    The One Dealbreakers Thread to Rule Them All

    The carplay complains are suppressing to me. I guess it depends on how good the native OS is to know if we need it or not. For some (specifically Mercedes Benz) the Infotainment OS plain 'ole sucks ass. You need carplay to get rid of that garbage. I have carplay in my i3s and I turned it off...

    The One Dealbreakers Thread to Rule Them All

    I don't think that's silly or swallow at all. I expect that. It would be different if we weren't talking about 85/$90,000 vehicles here. At that price point these things are absolutely required. No questions whatsoever. Its required. Reminds me when I passed on a Model S 100D back when that...

    The One Dealbreakers Thread to Rule Them All

    Don't see how this could be a deal breaker - you know that was never going to be an option. They showed the interior at the debut. Its all touch screen and it was never going to change. Deal breaker implies you were sold on one and Rivian changed something. Now you don't have a deal.

    The One Dealbreakers Thread to Rule Them All

    We were told there would be lidar and full self driving. Now that's not the case. I feel that's nearly a deal breaker for me if the system is any less than Tesla. But I don't see how it could be without better sensors. Rivian doesn't have the years of real world driving to train their self...

    Rivian and Chase Team Up For All-Digital Customer Financing Experience

    It sounds like a strong & positive move. Between Sapphire Reserve & Private Client branches, Chase has been killing it with their higher end banking products. I have a few mortgages with Chase and I'm certainly happy to do business with them.

    Rivian close to raising new round of funding at $25 billion valuation

    This is going off Tesla's Market Cap value. And the other companies here look off. Toyota has a 212b Market cap.

    Bed step

    As someone that uses my truck for work truck things. This is a genuine issue for me. I hop in/out of my Tundra bed at least 6-7 times on days I'm driving that. Its hard already on the Tundra and I'm well over 6ft. The gear tunnel door as a step might be a solution. It does appear to be low...

    Bed step

    Never realized this. Hnnn, that's a head scratcher. Made sense with the 180 degree tailgate but now that seems like a serious oversight. This got me kind of rethinking the R1T all of the sudden :confused:

    Compass Yellow Interior Accents

    Nice. Not sure how that would look on the green interior though. If it makes production I might switch from green to black for those accents.

    20” All-Terrain or 22” Sport wheel upgrade included - Which is better 20 or 22

    Weight is a big factor right? Forged wheels are typically lighter than alloys and the extra rubber in the taller side walls should weigh a good bit less than the extra weight of the 2" larger alloy rims.

    20” All-Terrain or 22” Sport wheel upgrade included - Which is better 20 or 22

    I recently put 20's on my Tundra and wish I had stuck with 18's. Big difference in ride quality IMO. I wonder why Rivian decided 20 would be their smallest wheel.

    20” All-Terrain or 22” Sport wheel upgrade included - Which is better 20 or 22

    Personally, I'd avoid the 21" just because of how hard it will be to get replacements in that size. I've had too many headaches with the i3's weird tire sizes. Can't get the tires anywhere but the dealer and even the ones in SoCal don't always stock them. I've had two flat tires over the years...

    20” All-Terrain or 22” Sport wheel upgrade included - Which is better 20 or 22

    I think its too early for me to know which wheel I want (Just saw the Pirelli post). Knowing exactly what tire it will be and what the range / speed tradeoffs will be for each is critical. But I would think changing wheel configuration would be ok up to pretty close to your truck going into...

    R1T Retracting running boards PLEASE

    Depends how it works. I don't want to have to do anything like press buttons or use an app and wait for it to lower. I've seen features like that on other vehicles and its slow. My power running boards extend the second I unlock or open the door on the Tundra. And they're back in within seconds...

    R1T Retracting running boards PLEASE

    Power running boards are a must have for me. I'm sure someone will make them aftermarket if Rivian doesn't. Would 100% prefer buying from the factory though. I'm 6' 5" and don't need them, but all of my shorty friends do when getting in my Tundra.
