Rivian has not yet announced colors for the production R1T Pickup truck, but we thought it'd be fun to give our members a preview look at the R1T in different potential colors.

Which ones do you like or do you plan to order (if given your choice of colors)?




























Nice!
Definitely the pale metallic sea green (next to last) for me. I want real color, so no white, grey, anthracite, black, regardless of matt, metallic, shine, etc. versions. Had to buy my Model 3 in red (the only other color is blue, and I really dislike blue for cars), even though red would be pretty far down in my list of choices, after various greens, turquoise, and purples.
Second choice would be the dark green used by Rivian on its prototype R1U.

Seeing these possibilities is exciting. Color counts on the highway and especially off-road any time of day and in all weathers, because colors constantly change with the light and in its absence. Context also alters color because of how the vehicle looks next to varied shapes, textures, and natural colors. Each of these presented colors work, by the sea, in the desert, the snow, the forest, and my favorite — the high peaks. Even music can shift the color mood. Green speaks to me, at the moment. Peace and shalom to all who one day get to choose a Rivian of whatever hue, dream vehicles now coming true.

I liked that metallic sea green, too. Don't know why, as I wouldn't like it on most other cars.

Would never buy a green car, except British racing green. The Rivian green is more lively and suits the SUV well.

BTW, I remember reading a comment on Instagram from Scaringe that they'd be launching with 8 color options to choose from.

Someone mocked up the R1T in red. Eye catching color but the awesome rear brake light strip would totally disappear with this color.

Great looking rig. Wish you could keep poth. A classic “gas” powered truck.

I was thinking I would want one in a gunmetal grey (somewhere between the black and silver). But after seeing the blue and green I'm second-guessing myself. The first green image looks great.
