As someone who currently drives a Tacoma and wants to upgrade to an R1T, thanks for this post.

There is one critical dimension of the R1T I need to know. The distance from the front of the bumper to the front of the tire, as this will determine if it can fit in my garage as I have a step toward the front.

I am not a math guy, but there should be a math equation you can do to figure that out based on the approach angle of 34° and the length of 217.1". I could be wrong...like I said...not a math guy.

Actually I tried to do this a while back but couldn't. The total vehicle length is not necessary. The approach angle is known (34°) and the wheel size is 34.1" (diameter for my preference), however a key factor will be bumper ground clearance (which I cannot assume) or distance from bumper to center point of bottom of tire (or just in front as it is squishy rubber)

While this isn't the most exciting spot, it's the one that got me to place my reservation a few weeks back! Sorry no interior shots as I didn't want to get in way of the employees who were standing near by.

I've been spotting the R1T's quite often around Orange County and the desert but never got to see them up close. Well while out for coffee (Common Room Roasters, so Rivian employee's enjoy local coffee roasters, major +1) I was able to compare my TRD Pro to the R1T and immediately fell in love.

Another thing I loved was the first image on their website was of mountain bikers. Excited to see these start hitting the roads hopefully near the original date they said.

We went with Limestone / Ocean Coast Adventure Package R1T w/ camp kitchen option

For casual mountain driving these two are the perfect size. I wish the Rivian had 500 miles of range. I would be all over it.

You can get close by taking the length (217.1") - wheelbase (135.9") - bed overhang, which is likely length beyond rear axel (45.5") - approx tailgate thickness (~7") to get to where the center of the front wheel is. I'm not sure about the diameter of the wheel and tire, but this puts the front axel at 28.7" from the front of the truck.

This may be the most helpful picture if the R1T I've seen. Thanks for pulling your truck up next to it!
I agree.
I’ve been looking for side by side pics also. I’m a big guy as in 5’ 10” 330 Lbs and was concerned about being jammed up against the inside of the door but truck seems pretty wide.

It is. I'm sure they said it is wider than a Tundra even.
Yes, I read an article where they said the Rivian was wider than both the Tacoma and the Tundra. The Tundra is longer though.
