Call me too optimistic if you want, but I feel like we've entered a regular cadence of information release from Rivian. The past 2 weeks straight we've received updates on Thursday with new, thorough information:
-Thursday 3/18: Charging News
-Thursday 3/25: Warranty News
-Thursday 4/1: Service News
-Thursday 4/8: Crickets
-Thursday 4/15: Insurance News
-Thursday 4/22: ????

I'm starting this thread to see if anyone has predictions on what we learn this week from Rivian, if they continue with the information dissemination as I'm hoping.

What say you? If you get it right, you'll be awarded 15 forum points.

I'll venture a guess that it has to do with available accessories and their pricing. Maybe the added bonus of rolling out the swag store with pricing, as well.

This would be my guess with the recent photos showing off the Yakima products, or that might come next week after they have time to make any photos and videos pretty.

Why else load up the R1T if not for a photo shoot?

I'll go first - I think they're going to provide much more detailed info on the integration with Alexa and infotainment on Thursday 4/1.

And don't forget, on 3/12 we got the "Guides" email, so we'd be going for four consecutive weeks. I'll go with @DuckTruck and guess accessories. We got a tent teaser this past week....so maybe??

EPA rated range would be nice.
Not a bad idea, or at least results from their testing. So far we've been teased with:
Hot weather testing
Cold weather testing
Drag coefficient
Crash testing
But we've never gotten actual results...

If they're smart they'll wait until after the Hummer SUV debut on 4/3 to make any really big announcements.

Since an Accessory update has already been guessed I’ll go out on a limb and say my guess is that @skyote reveals that he’s really RJ “incognito” AND we all get free accessories!
I think Skyote is trying to get an opportunity to review the truck for all of us 🤣.
@skyote if you are indeed RJ, can you do the review already! We've all seen you drive the truck with your family!
