Our first drive of the Rivian R1T left us very impressed, not just with the truck but with the prospect of what electrification can do for one of America's most popular vehicle segments. The Rivian R1T feels like a vehicle of the future, but it also feels like one very well grounded in the here and now. It hauls and tackles difficult terrain as well as or better than internal combustion pickups, and its combination of on-pavement handling prowess and off-road finesse is simply unmatched in any other current truck. If the Rivian R1T is the future of the pickup truck—and we certainly think it is—then the future cannot come quickly enough.

Is this the first official review? Over at Jalopnik.com, one of their contributers is said to be driving an R1T "next month".... Hopefully there are more reviews to come "soon" :)

Was this already known? This is news to me personally, and a great feature.
That's the only thing that I found to be new that I noticed.

Cramped rear seat room was the only major red flag for me. The complicated UI/UX doesnt bother me as it can be fixed fairly easily OTA and I am pretty quick with interfaces...

Updating after consuming all the MT data and it sounds like legroom is ok but the seats aren't that comfortable.

I am still concerned but they state that they are still adjusting them. I find that hard to believe this close to production...

"We are still adjusting prior to production" sounds like a way to placate and do spin control...
