    Wheel and color selection will affect your Rivian production / delivery timing - says Guide

    So we heard from a fellow forum member that spoke to their Guide today that: 2. Color and wheel selection will affect production window. Guides aren't sure by how much, but it will be a consideration. based on this comment I have a theory that if someone configures the 21” rim with the...

    Rivian Guide Contacted Finally! (For Real) 📬

    Which wheel did you configure? I do not believe different wheel sizes would matter much in terms of production scheduling as the robots don’t really care which tire it grabs and mounts as the bolt pattern is the same. However, I could understand that it could affect production if a certain...

    What's the point of "Launch Green" if you're not going to launch with it??

    Oh I see now. You were not aware that it was just a typo and meant to be called “Lunch Green”. Now that you have the facts straight I’m sure you can understand that they would not be giving priority delivery to your color choice. :like:

    Rivian Guide Contacted Finally! (For Real) 📬

    yes, I will for sure swing through Chagrin Falls. In fact, my wife and I was there last weekend at Bell & Flower and got some Jenni’s afterwards. Next time I can race some of the Ferraris and Lambos cruising the strip.

    Rivian Guide Contacted Finally! (For Real) 📬

    Yes, it does make some sense. Now why couldn’t they have chosen Rivian Black instead? Then maybe I wouldn’t be last in line for my LE R1T. Oh well...

    Thoughts on removal of Off Road Upgrade

    I asked CS several questions yesterday related to this Can I add the off road package after delivery? Answer: not that I am aware but it does sound like a good idea. Can I purchase the tow hooks separately. Answer: No, that are sold as one package. Is the suspension pre drilled to accept the...

    I added the full size spare too, however, it was $800. Which wheel did you configure? I have the 22” Sport Bright wheels.

    Test Drives!

    I plan to attend the event in Detroit as it’s only a 3 hour drive from my house. I don’t really need to see multiple color options (I chose Black) but I do want the chance to interact with my fellow Riviots!!

    Off Road Package now optional for Launch Edition (lowers price by $2k)

    Perfect. That is all I ever see needing in case I lose all power. The chances of getting stranded on the road in OH is likely greater than that of other states like CA.

    Off Road Package now optional for Launch Edition (lowers price by $2k)

    Ok, bubble has been bursted. However, how do you explain Long Way Up, Episode 4(The Andes) from 16:50 - 18:22? Was that movie magic or was VIN 1 and VIN 2 equipped with special motors?

    Thoughts on removal of Off Road Upgrade

    In the series Long Way Up, available on Apple TV, they show several times when the Rivian’s ran out of juice and got a tow which recharges the batteries a bit. That is why think there is value in the tow hooks otherwise where will you tow from without damaging the truck?

    So there is a Delay in Deliveries. Launch Edition starts July

    Yes, I am sure you can do a tank turn in Central Park. However, you would get a LOT more views on YouTube if you do the tank turn in Times Square in front of all the people waiting for Broadway Tickets!:like:

    So there is a Delay in Deliveries. Launch Edition starts July

    Nah. Biden prefers the F-150 Lightning. No Rivian event in DC.

    Off Road Package now optional for Launch Edition (lowers price by $2k)

    I too want the tow hooks but not necessarily the steel panels. The tow hooks not only look cool but useful in case you run out of range and need your friend to give you a tow charge. Another thing, all my other vehicles come with a single tow hook that you can screw in to allow a flatbed to load...

    Which accessories are you configuring?

    This is what I am purchasing for the compressor. I have to admit that the Hromee kit does not sound as cool as the Rivian kit but it’s half the price!

    Off Road Package now optional for Launch Edition (lowers price by $2k)

    Very good point. I may contact CS today to see if they can give me the estimated weight savings of the off-road package. I am a backpacker so I know every ounce counts. But I doubt it makes a material difference for range.

    Off Road Package now optional for Launch Edition (lowers price by $2k)

    So this morning I went into the configurator and noticed that the off-road package was unchecked from my Launch Edition R1T and now had a $2000 price tag. However, going through other pages I then realized that they made it optional and reduced the price of the truck the equivalent $2000. This...
