I’ll be the wet blanket here… I feel like every little Easter egg, quirk and feature has already been uncovered. I wish I had a nickel for every time I hear about the door-docking flashlight (yay…. 7,777 battery) and Bluetooth speaker.

I’m a Doug D fan, but I have my doubts that I’ll learn anything new about the R1T. I hope that I’m wrong.
Agree'd. I'm not looking forward to his review in hopes he'll uncover something new...but I am looking forward to hearing what he has to say about it in general. He has reviewed a lot of different cars - super cars, ultra luxury, trucks, minivans, etc. It will speak volumes of the quality of the vehicle if he raves about the interior, drive, handling, etc. Given what other vehicles he has reviewed. *that* is what I am looking forward to seeing/hearing.

He definetily likes supercars more than utility vehicles.
Any guesses on the score?

Looking and comparing to the Raptor score, I could see the R1T breaking into the 70's...
Styling 6
Acceleration 9
Handling 5
Fun Factor 8
Cool Factor 6
Total weekend: 34
Features 7
Comfort 8
Quality 7
Practicality 8
Value 7
Total daily: 37
Total: 71


These aren't my scores, just my estimate of what Doug would give it...

Doug posted another video today and I can say with absolute certainty it is the one that many people have been clamoring for: Citroen C6.
I've owned a 2009 Citroen C5. Not less quirky than this one. Same suspension and weird rear window. It also had very specific steering wheel with only ring of the steering wheel turning and center of the wheel being static.

Still, will be hard to beat the Raptor. Hopefully it will. Waiting on the Doug score for now.

Instrumented tests, and in-depth evaluation of critical features are what I look for.
"I don't like the plastic they use" or "My BMW is nicer" is useless: All modern cars under $250k are plastic, and my last drive in a 2020 BMW 535 didn't impress me when compared to virtually all other brands.

I don't mind Doug but I can't see him bringing a whole lot new to Rivian commentary, unless the truck they gave him had some glaring issues. To your point I think this is what he'll discuss, the comparisons to the other luxury and off roar oriented vehicles out there. Which is fine and all for those who are interested in that stuff. I'm more interested in the reviews that will deep dive into range and charge curve details because that's been lacking up until this point.

I don't follow him too closely but points awarded in a few of those categories seem way too low to me. Styling is subjective so while I don't know what Doug will think, I would rate styling higher. I definitely think cool factor and handling will both be higher than rockdogz guess.
