    2023 Rivian R1T/S price hike coming?

    I predict Rivian will have a price increase for 2023 R1 vehicles. I predict current reservations will be impacted and a Tony will be sending out an e-mail soon. Your thoughts? Did they learn a price increase lesson earlier in the year when they had tons of cancellations? Bottom line? Rivian...

    Resale pricing are starting to dip

    I noticed used R1T pricing has started to trend down. I see the same thing happening to Ford Lightning pickups. I think the rising interest rates, inflation and stock market volatility have thrown some shade on the used car market.

    Anybody else delaying their purchase for a 2023?

    Hello all. I received contact from my Guide last week stating that they matched my R1T configuration and to get ready to start the 8-step purchase process. It sounded like the truck was already built and awaiting shipment. With only 10-weeks remaining in the year I decided to delay my purchase...

    28 fresh deliveries @ Costa Mesa SC

    Freshly trucked up from the Mira Loma train depot! My other half and I decided to swing by the Costa Mesa SC to confirm our wheel, interior and paint choice. We wanted to see everything in person since the lot was rather bare during my First Mile drive in May. I never had a chance to see 4...

    Consumer Reports tests an R1T for a day

    They spent a day with 3 versions of the R1T and were generally quite impressed. They said the trucks acceleration was “ridiculously quick”. ”As much as we like the Rivian, it’s pricey, and we’ll be watching its reliability closely - first year models and startup manufacturers tend to have bugs...

    Did Rivian’s generous 5/60k factory warranty influence your purchase decision?

    Rivian’s come with a very generous bumper-to-bumper and battery pack warranty. If you purchase an R1T this month you are covered by the factory bumper-to-bumper warranty until 8/2027. Did it influence your purchase decision over other vehicles? My hunch is that Rivian will shorten the...

    If Volvo built a BEV pickup truck

    I completed my First Mile test drive on Friday. My immediate styling impression? Volvo. Install a Volvo emblem on the nose and the R1T would look at right at home in a Volvo showroom next to their current portfolio. That’s a compliment to the Rivian design team. I remember back in 2005-06 when...

    40-60k miles on a set of tires? Not on a 3 1/2 ton R1T!!!

    As a Tesla owner I want to prepare future R1T owners. Tires don't last nearly as long on a EV as a gas powered vehicle. We are conservative drivers and our 17k mile Tesla Model Y Dual Motor will be due for a new set of tires soon. The rear tires typically wear faster than the front. The...
