    From Rivian's Twitter.

    Makes me wonder how much the air suspension can handle. I want to see the video.

    Is this a truck we haven't seen yet? I'll admit I am not as into the details of what's been shown as many others here. The 2 biggest things I noticed are that it looks white, and not silver (I noted I thought I saw a white truck in the Fully Charged video thread, maybe this is the same truck?), and it looks to have an R1T badge on the back, which neither silver or blue trucks have.

    not only do I want to see the video...what tires where they using to get that traction?

    Looks like a lot of fun...is that a course on our test drive (wink)?

    This is a known truck, one of two in Argentina used for the upcoming documentary "The Long Way Up". It is white, and there is a matte grey one that is similar. These two (along with the original silver and newer blue) are the only 4 examples of the R1T seen in the wild. The two Argentina trucks are known to be newer examples, and have some differences, one of which you have spotted. Search this forum for Argentina...

    Unless they changed the tires prior to "TAKEOFF", they were also sporting the Pirelli Scorpion A/Ts just like the Show trucks.

    Awesome. Pics look amazing. Glad they're finally sharing some new details. I am curious what their SOC was after 314 miles in the 135kWh they have...which is a new detail we didn't have. I love the last statement.

    Here's to more details as we get closer to ONE YEAR since the original reveal at the LA Auto Show.
