If this photo had been posted anywhere else, I'm not even sure I would've noticed the Rivian beyond the ugliness of that Bronco. First time I've seen the 4-door soft top, and I've gotta say, I find it hideous. This from someone that generally likes the new Bronco (Sport not so much).

Tags do look temporary on the R1T though.

Honestly have only seen one Bronco on the road that I thought looked decent. The rest have looked uuuuuuugly. ?

They look so good on the website, I just don't understand how they can look so different in person??

There are quite a few Bronco Sports driving around, which is not the same as the full size. Could that be it?

That must be it! I did not realize that they had different sizes and I think up to this point I have only seen the Sport.

The other thing that makes a big difference in my opinion is soft top vs hard top. I'm not a big fan of the soft top.

With that said, I agree, the ones you've seen are probably Bronco sports. There are very few of the full sized Broncos on the road as Ford has had huge issues with production (mostly related to the hard top). I haven't seen any of the full sized Broncos on the road.

Temp tags? I'm guessing that means this person was part of the employee deliveries. I live just down the road from where this was taken and I haven't even had a guide contact yet.

I can't tell if there are filters applied to these photos, but that blue looks mean af under these overcast skies :camera:
that's actually what has tempted me to getting one in Seattle. I'm not sure if I like the blue in bright light, but definitely when it presents itself a little darker.

Can always go with the Rivian blue and then get it professionally wrapped with protective film. They make kinds with a satin finish, a very slight smokey effect. Seen some photos of new Broncos with this treatment and the paint tone goes from so-so to knockout.

Ford Bronco in Antimatter blue satin PPF wrapped. I think it looks outstanding

Same. I was thinking they would look great...but no.
