Keep in mind that the earlier reviews were done on Webster Pass. I've gone through it a few times and it is a fairly easy trail.Id be curious to know which drive mode he was in and what the regen brake settings were. From other reviews, I've seen people stopped on descents I believe without having their foot on the brake. I'd imagine it would also allow for hill hold with max regen on. Or perhaps the weight and grade of the hill were more than the regen could.
That depends on if the truck has TPMS sensors in each wheel. I'm not 100% sure of this, but I think that was a requirement after the Explorer/Firestone fiasco.At least several of these are OTA updates. Would the tire pressure monitoring be an OTA?
I could have sworn I saw it in at least one of the first review videos from the Colorado event. I'm guessing that they identified an issue with it and pulled it from the software build to patch with an OTA update. If this is Brian's personal truck I'm surprised he didn't address some of these things with Doug, but maybe that was by design.The owners manual lists individual tire pressure display. Assuming that isn’t a misprint, my guess is that it will be an OTA update at some point.
It'll try, but you're still going to get independent wheel wheel slip. Just the nature of the math problem with four motors.We are suppsed to have virtual lockers as well where the motors sync to reproduce a solid axle or locker effect.
Agreed. I test drove a LR Defender and the cameras were outstanding. I just don’t want something that has cameras that were as bad as those on my Gen 2 Raptor.Thought Doug did good job on this one, with some really insightful points. Hill descent and hill hold sound like a must have to me for off roading.
But the cameras!
Seriously how could Rivian allow their camera tech to be frankly abysmal?
I'm still in disbelief... I absolutely am in love with the camera system JLR has and the invisible car mockup's the screens generate showing all the cars surroundings. I feel like this such a big miss regarding the R1T and R1S.
I hope this is something they can sort out before I'm up for my Max Pack.
I completely agree with you as to what driving setting he was driving on. I have heard Rivian employee explaining in changing a decent setting so that the speed can adjust in every inclination.Id be curious to know which drive mode he was in and what the regen brake settings were. From other reviews, I've seen people stopped on descents I believe without having their foot on the brake. I'd imagine it would also allow for hill hold with max regen on. Or perhaps the weight and grade of the hill were more than the regen could.
Agree that more aggressive tires would have made the hill even easier. Rivian had to have some level of compromise or give up way too much range.
Seriously disappointed by the cameras. He's mentioned it in both videos now. I'm hoping its an OTA fix since its already improved since Breckenridge. Will be very disappointed if its just due to cheap hardware.
Not an off-road expert by any means but rock/crawl largely does away with this need. In my ICE, the descent is needed to gear down the car and offer some resistance, otherwise it just accelerates all the way down. When I was one-pedal driving in Sonoma, the Rivian would literally just stop on on an incline unless you actively nudged it forward with "gas". I doubt that mode is coming because it doesn't seem needed, IMO.No Hill Descent Control. Also surprising, but I think that could be a future software upgrade.
