From the pricing section: "If you think about what you get, if you think about this truck, it is something of a smoking a smoking bargain."

From the should you buy it section: "If you look at our six key criteria, the Rivian it aced all of them....just A pluses across the board."

They also said the gear tunnel door can support 400lb. When did that happen or is that another mistake by MT? I hope they are right about that one because a 250lb limit would be an issue for me.

They said the bluetooth speaker was a subwoofer. I recall someone saying it's actually off while docked. Subwoofer is under the rear seat.
I was also bothered to an unreasonable degree when he tried to "rush" the automatically opening frunk both while opening and closing 😤.

Regardless, Johnny said he is at a svelte 230 lbs. and he was jumping on it like a trampoline. Seems sturdy enough for me!

Jonny has been hyping this truck for months. He has spent more time in it than any other journalist and in more varied conditions. And he's still hyping it. That's a good thing.

I guess if you want to go over recommended limit, you want to stand closer to the hinge and do it with less bounce. That way with the safety margin they have, you should be OK. They know people will be loading Kayaks and such on the roof so the total weight it can handle should be reasonable.

@minute 4, does he double tap the gear tunnel door to open it? Or just that just some snazzy editing?

Looks like he unlocked the truck with the key fob...but there isn't anything within the current owner's guide that mentions opening the gear tunnel with the fob.

edit:
I finally watched the rest of the video...I guess the guy inside the tunnel opened it with the release latch...
They had me fooled...

First time I've heard someone say (of the R1T or F-150 Lightning, in particular) "rifle" over "golf clubs".

Minute 3: he says the front light bar is a progress bar for charging. I thought the only external indicator was the light around the charge port. Is he correct?
