I agree with that reasoning, but since that the door has been advertised as a place I should stand to load things in the bed or on the roof, I would at least expect that loop to not stick up as far as it *appears* to in the screenshot.
Agreed. In reality it is probably maybe a half an inch or so above the main surface so not really a big deal. I just thought it was interesting.

I don't think that is necessarily true...The trunk in my Tesla can be set to open all the way, barely, or anywhere in between. This is to ensure that you don't open the massive trunk into a garage door or whatever may be overhead. I don't have mine open all the way but when I am at a place where I can, and I need it opened all the way, I push up to it's maximum opening. I am sure there is an adjustment that can be made.

2) LT 265/65R20 tires. LT tires are a bit much for a 6k lbs vehicle. My f-150 weighs about 6200 lbs and I don't use LT tires on it. I've bought LT tires on a Tundra before and regretted it. Braking and acceleration are worse. I lose fuel efficiency. And it's a rougher ride. The R1T will never get nearly heavy enough for LT tires.
I'm planning on the 20" wheels. I think my second set of tires will be a non LT, all-season tire. I bet the range gets much better, maybe beating whatever they get from the EPA on the 21" wheels.

I've ran LT tires on several trucks and SUVs. If you actually go off-road, LT tires are preferred -- usually more plys in their construction and overall stronger tires.

Considering that Rivian is offering 20" for offroad-focused buyers and 21"/22" for more road-focused buyers, I think it's fantastic that they may include decent tires with their off-road wheel option.

I'd be more worried about sitting. I guess you'll just either need to enjoy it, or learn your lesson quickly.

I'm confident that's actually the Launch Green, and it looks sick. Definitely changes in different light.

That is what I thought Launch Green

I noticed that also, and the fact that he ended up pushing it up a little makes me think it didn't open completely as expected....?? Just another kink to be worked out I guess..
I suspect this is by design. Before he pushes it up any higher it is about at the level of his head, which you can see later is pretty close to the height of the roof. This is exactly the frunk functionality those of us that will have kayaks strapped to the roof want, so the frunk does not bang into them when opening. The engine cover of my C8 operates this way also, but for different reasons :cool:

Wouldnt have thought of that as a reason! Totally makes sense, I was bummed watching him put it up as that would be annoying.

Much improved cupholders at 3:33:
Only a short look but those cupholders look much more substantial than the previous versions. I like how David said the big improvement was the "fit and finish" of the interior and we got only a few shots at the interior.

2001 Honda Civic EX - way overdue for upgrade
Newer builds are awesome!

Anyone else think the movement of the latch mechanism to the door side of the gear tunnel is a little odd? Seems like something to get caught on and/or make it awkward to sit on it and gear up
Given all the bad karma I've accumulated for laughing about testicular injury that resulted in death recently, it definitely makes me nervous.

Not to be a downer, but check out that arm rest while they were talking about "fit and finish"

...I'm sure all this will be resolved in the next 6 months. I'm happy with the delivery delays if this is the stuff they're finding and fixing in the pre-prod vehicles.

That's light and shadow. Wait 10 seconds for the next shot of that area.,

Looks like glass reflection/glare.

I think you are likely right as this on its own looks terrible. I just cant fathom it making to production.
