Button near tailgate releases a dampened slow open of the gate.
Good enough for me.

Plus, confirmation you can fit a young boy in gear tunnel. :handsinair:

Well said, young man, well said.

The more I see of Forest Green paint and the diversity of tone/shade and finish both flat and flaked, I can't help but wonder how "Launch Green" could possibly be any better... And this video convinces me that matching it with Forest green interior looks fabulous.

Key takeaways for me:
-Tailgate is definitely not powered, but definitely is dampened and released by the bedrail button
-Frunk is definitely powered
-Stereo is definitely Meridian
-There's a surprising amount of hitchhikers in Wyoming

That's so cool though, I love the idea of snowboarding without a ski resort. Though I'm sure they had pleasure of Rivian driving it back down for them lol.

I have not seen any indication that pressing a button will wet the tailgate, but it does appear to be damped.

Dampers damp, they don't dampen.

So its powered released and carefully lowered, just cant put it back up that way which is probably some healthy and safety hazard.
