I'm just here to let you all know how disappointed I am that nobody has replied "OK Boomer".

Now trying to get us back on track...What options do you think will be included in the $69K starting price?

So far it's been moderately confirmed that the $69K is the mid-level battery pack and the electrochromatic roof. But we also know that RJ said it would also be a well equipped model, so what additional options might be included? My completely wild-a$$ guesses:
-mid-level stereo (if such an option exists)
-Power Tonneau Cover
-20" Wheels

Excluded:
-Power Tailgate
-Upgraded interior material (not leather, but something vegan)
-22" Wheels
-Top-o-the-line stereo (Paradigm)
-Power Frunk
-Bed lights, additional accessories
-power-sliding rear window
-Roof/bed racks

What say you?

Hmmmm

Good question

Included
- Power Tonneau Cover
- Power Frunk/Tailgate

Excluded
- Level 3 Autonomous
- 22 in wheels
- Power Rear Window
- Rack System


My burning CONFIG questions are
1) What does the removable option look like? Cost vs Electrochromatic?, Noise differences? T-Top?
2) How much is autonomous gonna cost? How functional is it? I want this option for my airport commutes

Everything else I expect to be a "reasonable price". I love the idea of the removable speakers, built in flashlights, hell I even want the kitchen but I know that is going to be $$$$ The big ticket items are going to be roof and autonomous.

I dont think the power rear window will be an option since they have the gear tunnel...

I was very tempted. And in a way, I kinda did.

I know what I'd like to be included. Honestly I'd be pretty happy with power frunk and powered tonneau cover and that's pretty much it.

Honestly I can't even think of how many options they really can put on it considering they're doing all crew cab.

I thought I heard that all vehicles would have Level 3 autonomy (eventually). Am I crazy?

There's been an occasional article about what they intend to do. Their youtube channel also has a video about their autonomous effort. This article from last year has some info too: https://www.teslarati.com/rivian-full-self-driving-ignores-driver-input-tesla-autopilot/

I sure hope the 69k gets me the electrochroamatic roof and 135kwh pack, thats the kicker for me. Anything less and I'm out.

Power lift gate and frunk- don't care, just more stuff to break.

interior material- they could follow Tesla's model 3/y route and just use the same "fake leather " material in different colors and just differentiate trims based on colors?

Sliding rear window and roof/bed racks do get me excited and are something I would spring for.

I mentioned it on a different thread, but for those that have not seen it, Rivian has removed all mention of the $69.9/$72.5 starting prices for each vehicle on their support page.
It's still mentioned on the R1T/S product pages (at the very bottom) but it does appear they are starting to revamp the web site in preparation for the launch of the configurator. While we know there is a lot happening behind the scenes, it's a lot more satisfying to actually have some visible forward progress with web site updates, the opening of the Customer Engagement Center, news of Rivian spec Pirelli tires, etc.

Good catch....I missed that. It definitely is not as predominately placed as it was earlier on...They had originally placed it in the Support section. Looking forward to more changes.

If level 3 autonomous is excluded from the 69k price im out. Hard no for me, it's the only thing keeping me from waiting for an electric F-150. I could accept not having a power frunk or rear gate, but because they've already advertised these features id be extremely disappointed.

I think the "Starting" price actually refers to the minimum equipment that they will build for on day 1. They've said before that the 105kWh pack isn't going to be in production right away. Anyone thinking they'll get a Rivian R1T for less than the starting price next year is going to be disappointed. They don't want to be like Tesla and make promises that take years to hit (if even at all, like the Model Y SR going away).

My understanding is that the lvl 3 hardware(lidar, sonar, cameras etc...) Will be included. Actual lvl 3 abilities will be enabled at a later date. Whether an additional fee to activate is involved, I don't know.
