As the owner of a 2021 RAM 1500 Limited I completely agree with your sentiment and your list of pros & cons. I would add one biggie: towing with my R1T.Overall, I absolutely love my Rivian and feel sad when I still have to drive the RAM. I DEFINITELY wish the Rivian had a little bigger bed and it's totally dumb they don't do CarPlay. Even still... it's my favorite vehicle I've ever owned.
As I loaded hundreds of pounds of paving stones into my Model S, some dude walked by and said, "nice truck." It is, thank you. I will use my toys as trucks if I want. At least the R1T has an open bed. If the Subaru Baja were a four motor EV then perhaps I'd be reading those forums while watching everyone else get their vehicle first.The R1T is not a truck, its a toy with a toy bed not meant for actually hauling shit.
