Really curious if they already did their "standard towing range" test and will discuss those results ?

Andre from TFL truck has said that Rivian is going to allow them to do the Ike gauntlet testing that they do on all the other trucks they test, so this should be pretty interesting to see.

I hope they are able to look past their bias against Rivian in order to give it a fair review...

I have my doubts.
I would rather watch a review from someone that has a bias against a product than one that is already drooling over it. If they come in with a negative attitude and walk out happy, then I am sold.

Probably their hurt feelings.

The day Tommy came on this forum to pump their video which was the most amount of whining I've ever seen adults do in front of a video camera was the day I unsubbed to their channels. Probably still won't watch this and hope for a TL;DW.

Huh? I said that I was hoping for an unbiased review. Nothing more, nothing less.

Exactly the reason I posted it.. :CWL:

I mean, I really want to see them take the R1T on the Ike Gauntlet. However, I also want to see reaction after they acted like spoiled brats last year.

I watch these guys all the time. Think they do a really good job of reviewing and testing vehicles. They may have a negative bias based on being excluded from previous media events from Rivian but I bet the R1T is going to win them over. I hope they are getting to do a no holds bared testing of this. Will give us a pretty good look at it from a truck and off-road enthusiast view. Can't wait to hear what they have to say.

I doubt it.

When I watched their Silverado-Lightning-R1T comparison video this weekend, Roman had a big chip on his shoulder about not having a rivian right away, how they were cancelling their order because they weren't getting it soon enough, Silverado won on range because rivian doesn't have a 400 mile R1T delivered yet (wait, Silverado's have been delivered already?)

I felt for them for not being invited to the press event in CO, but their bitterness about that has become extremely apparent and made me lose a bit of respect for them as a result.

7 day TFL test. OR, drag race, ranch work, road trip, towing.

Is that a Ram TRX cage match in the making?
