You can just see how much more aero the Rivian is. The R1T we are hearing rumors of .30 drag motor trend states the gladiator as "the drag coefficient of a giant lunchbox." I think its .6 which isn't much better than my hummer H1 .7 drag.

The Rivian being more aerodynamic than a Jeep isn't exactly sayin' much. The standard is a cow. 😂😂😂😂

Low drag coefficient is great, but meaningless if it is applied across a large area. That cow is probably more “aero” than the Rivian!

I’m excited to see what happens when they start making smaller vehicles.

Any other photos with the Gladiator? Love to see directly from the front or back to get a better idea on sizing... Angles such as above are difficult to discern.

Unfortunately I haven't been able to see a Riv in person yet.

Anyone else now picturing that cow with long flowing locks of hair... kinda... Fabio-esc... mid 90's?
