    Hey all,

    First timer here to a car forum, my name is Billy. Excited about the R1S. I’m in NYC and upstate driving a 2016 Land Rover Range Rover TD6. Excited for this electric SUV to drive back and forth yet still be able to work on my propert up in the Catskills. I must admit it’s tough to decide between the truck and the SUV but the 7 seats tipped the scale for me enough. It’ll be interesting to see when those back seats are down how much room you actually have.

    Jeff from Santa Clara. Extremely excited about the R1T and also R1S; not as excited about the price, it's about 20k more than ideal, although certainly the right thing for Rivian to do as a company.

    Craig from Denver, CO. I pre-ordered the R1S and I can't wait to take this SUV up to the mountains with my family. I'm a previous Jeep Wrangler owner and I am curious to see how well the Rivian does on some light trails. I'm also looking forward to aftermarket products when they become available.

    As much as I want a R1T I think rugged off roaders should and will stick with the Wrangler. I am surrounded by light desert trails and that is fine.

    I drove a new wrangler a few weekends ago and thought it was a little tiring on the highway.. but for what it is, there is nothing that compares to it.. I do pretty light offroading and have been for a few years, so I feel like I could take the Rivian offroad and not ding it up, but it is always a matter of margin for error, and risk... and I would be nervous with a 70k+ vehicle off road for sure...

    I'll still have my Jeeps for rock crawling & serious stuff. My Rivian will see mainly pavement duty, but I won't hesitate to take to the hunting lease or other light/moderate offroad where 4x4 is needed but there's no real risk of damage. Shoot, I won't even take it where it could get brush scratches due to the amount of investment.

    Hi all, put our deposit for R1S for my wife to get rid of the Forrester, She loves driving my Model 3 and the forrester is not so fun anymore, No gas is great. Was considering a Model X but it can't beat the ground clearance, price any many other details that Rivian looks to be bringing out. Now I can quit looking and just wait for hopefully a good experience.
