I hope that in “pet mode” there’s something to indicate to well-meaning passers-by that the air conditioner is on, so they don’t smash the window to rescue your dog. Extremely not a fan of central-screen controls for everything, though. Being able to quickly adjust vents, steering wheels, etc. in a direct tactile way is way faster and easier, even if it isn’t as “fancy.”

Your last sentence: “This is, quite simply, the best all around car I’ve ever tested.” I immediately put a deposit down on one. You should get royalties, Doug! Your opinion carries a ton of weight with me. Thanks. 👍

Congratulations you played yourself. Electric cars will never work. The grid already can’t keep up with all the charging, just look at california, telling people not to charge their EV’s LMAO. Not to mention, everyone sitting there for 30 minutes to 1 hour to get MAYBE half battery charged, enjoy, asshole 🥂

Love it, but seems like there were a couple of big misses for those with kids. No cup holders for 2nd row if using middle seat. Seat belts in third row seem like they would be very difficult for younger kids to reach as they are attached high and further back.

I actually really like the front end, it’s rare for a company to come out with something so distinctive these days. You can see only a sliver of a Rivian and instantly know what it is. I think that’s generally good design

I think Rivian makes a beautiful car. I won’t be a buyer until they are more established though. My experience with Tesla and the brutal service was enough for me to steer clear of new entrants. Side note, Tesla let’s you vent the windows from the app. My Audi lets me start not only the HVAC but also the cooled seats. Love that!

I'm really impressed with how well Rivian seem to be nailing it with their target audience, while making a truck & suv that is still a good functional vehicle for anyone. I'm glad they're not trying to out-quirk all the other EV competitors and seem to be focusing on utility and ergonomics, while throwing in a bunch of handy stuff for outdoors like the speaker & leveling setting. I'm hoping the long term reliability is fair on these.

@Evan Anderson They actually start at $72k and go up to 95k. They’re the same entry point as a lot of other options most American families such as myself have with large SUV’s. Like Tahoes, Suburbans, Escalades and Navigators. People right now are taking the huge tax rebate, than turning around and selling them for much over MSRP. Some are the first launch editions as well so when these are readily available in 16-24 months then they will reflect those prices. I’m currently looking to buy a 2022 R1T with 460 miles. The adventure for $89k and trying to work it down to $85 which was what that one sold for new with all the options it had.

I would seriously consider one of these for the family vehicle. The only problem is it doesn’t seem to be very practical for long trips as in more than the vehicles range. Hopefully the infrastructure gets to the point where one of these vehicles can take a charge and 15 minutes or less
RaduGT หลายเดือนก่อน
I like these better than the R1T and I think they look better too. But I can’t stand the pop-out door handles, those things should be abolished from the car industry I’m also disliking the trend of putting every interior control into one “infotainment” center. Basic functionality of daily used controls should have physical buttons. Sifting through menus to change your ac is an unnecessary complication and distraction.
Meadmaker 452
Meadmaker 452 หลายเดือนก่อน
When you have to go through a menu system to try to find your AC controls, and then grab a little icon thingy on the screen and drag it around to where you want the air to blow, all while 70mph+ on the highway and not watching where you're going, you know you have a design fail on your hands. I like technology, and the AC adjustment gimmick is cute, but it's definitely not practical. Futuristic shouldn't by synonymous with impracticality or unsafe driving.

Doug, how have you never seen a car that can remotely roll down the car’s windows through the app? My 2016 Lexus Is200t (I know I should’ve upgraded to the 350) can do that and more through the app. It can turn n the engine, unlock or lock the doors, see each tires PSI, check how many miles of range your current fuel level will provide, and you can even heat or cool the cabin remotely. You can also do all this through even a smart watch! Now that’s like some 007 shit. Only downside is you need a pay for a monthly subscription to get all that functionality, once the free trial ends.

I was extremely excited for this car. I was going to be an early depositor and purchase one. I didn’t just because of my personal experience with Autos over the years. In my personal opinion and speaking only for myself, I believe you should never purchase the first model. Wait until it’s out and all the mistakes come to the public and the company fixes everything with the second generation. For example with this Rivian. Imagine driving down the road and having to adjust either the seat or the mirrors or the air vents from some ridiculous screen while doing 70-75 even 80 on a Monday morning while drinking coffee and trying not to die or kill anyone on I-95 in December when it’s grey wet dark and frozen. Or worse. Imagine you’re a Married Man driving this Rivian on your family vacation in Florida and you have a wife and daughters. Just imagine trying to fix the air vents for two daughters and a wife while navigating again I-95 in august along with rest of the east coast and that passenger load plus the Golden Retriever while trying to find the beach house you rented, how long before you just mash that accelerator to the floor as you jump lanes heading straight for the fastest oncoming semi just to find some quiet time in the icu or the morgue??? I really love this suv but it’s still no equal to a 55 Chevy Nomad. I also had no idea it was going to be so small. I personally have dogs and love the utilitarian interior my wife might like it also, not the vent nonsense but the utilitarian stuff. It’s overpriced though because you can still get a Tahoe High Country with bench seats and a Z71 suspension and 10,000 pound towing capacity for around $70 with all the incentives. Again personally I live in Southlake Texas. We average a lot of 100 degree days and Doug who usually mentions really cold AC didn’t mention that. I wonder if it can hang with a Texas summer and fishing on the Gulf??? Lots and lots of pluses but some really big minuses for me.

While I enjoy their thoughtfulness of many things. I have to say that I find that the integration of everything into a screen, takes your eyes off the road for longer periods of time to do all the essential functions like wipers and lights. Making them more difficult.

I'm on the pre-order list (almost 1 year now) for the R1S. Glad you like it, Doug. I, however, may be canceling my pre-order for two reasons which you don't mention at all in your video: First, the entertainment system is essentially non-existent: No satelite radio, No Apple CarPlay or Android integration. A Travesty at this price point. Second, the huge sunroof is a solar collector with no mechanical or electro-optical shade option. I live in sunny Colorado and don't wish to be baked in my vehicle when left in a parking lot or driving mid-day. How could these over-sights have been made?

Glad to see Rivian is also offering all the nice features that were originally introduced by Tesla (mobile phone control, pet mode, camp mode, big screen on dash, frunk, vent control... )

I think I love everything about this, except for the ugly front end... AND the terrible terrible choice all these EVs decided to go with by putting everything on the infotainment touchscreen. Instant dealbreaker, I need to be able to use the controls without taking my eyes off the road.

Imagine this when they do next model year improvements. I'd add compressed air/power under the front trunk, power folding seats, electrochromic roof glass, interior revisions and pretty much sit back, crack a beer and enjoy the view from the top for awhile. This is one amazingly capable and comprehensive vehicle. Looks like Rivian stayed up a lot of late nights doing their homework.

NJturtlePower หลายเดือนก่อน
@Jeff Based on what experience or just the Fox news EV headlines? And yet you're still here watching EV reviews...strange! Would be like me commenting on motorcycle reviews I could care less about and will never buy. EV reliability FAR exceeds gas vehicles...think of all the components and failure points removed in EV's....now hybrids, I would agree. 4+ years here with 2 different Tesla and can't imagine ever going back....to gain what? Next up for me is a Fisker Ocean which I'll flip for the Cybertruck when the time comes, have reservations on both.

@Jeff I could not agree more. However it would be nice to see many of these features make it to standard gasoline-powered counterparts. Electric vehicles are far more environmentally destructive.

I probably wouldn't suggest buying it even if it was being sold for $1. The reliability on electric vehicles nowadays is at best questionable.
O8Zen หลายเดือนก่อน
@NJturtlePower not in the EV world, check out the yearly price changes of Tesla's main models since they were released! The model 3 was meant to be $35k, now the cheapest is 41 but good luck getting one, so the price of the ones you can actually order is more in the 50-60 range. Prices keep increasing and it started before all the inflation drama.

I agree with Doug on the McLaren being number one....but for the rivian to be the highest rated SUV I think the new escalade Platinum sport kills it in every mode except electric and 0-60. Two things I dont want in an suv. The build quality from Rivian is very nice, probably the best built electric transportation you can get besides a one wheel.

Good review, but it's hard to take you seriously when you say this will go further off road than a Bronco or Jeep. I'm not even sure if you can put larger tires on a Rivian, those little tires will shred on larger rocks

Somehow so similar to Tesla in terms of driver controls, but also seeming much less driver-hostile and far better thought out. Much closer to getting minimalism right. Not that many more physical controls, but some really important ones that would be such a huge quality-of-life upgrade to my Model 3. Come on Rivian, get to making a Model 3 competitor!

I can’t believe you spent the first two minutes of the review glowing over the remote phone app and remote start and a/c abilities of the car. My 2016 Chevy Volt had this six years ago as does my 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-e and as do most modern vehicles. I don’t see Rivian breaking much new ground with this vehicle nor do I find it very attractive looking. That said I don’t find their pickup attractive at all either. Am I the only one missing something here?!

This SUV looks truly impressive, the only thing I don't really like is that simple tasks like adjusting the AC vents or your steering wheel seems to be quite complicated.

@Harry Smith I hear you. My Rover had that, and with 2 drivers, it was convenient to have both steering wheel and seat adjusted based on key accessing it.

Looks great! Especially that air compressor feature which is extra handy, BUT from a product development standpoint, not having electronic third row seats at the price point truly is a fail. Why? Because a third row is a feature that attracts families with three children or more. However, because the vehicle is not as long as a Suburban/YukonXL etc, the owner, likely a mom, will constant be putting the third row seats up and down for groceries, sports equipments, and strollers etc. To require them to have to crawl into the trunk to actually do that is unacceptable for $85k. My 2021 Denali which was $83k has that. Even the Tahoe Premier which is $74k has it. Hopefully they add it for the following year’s body style.

Hope to see Rivian succeed. Hate to be that guy (or I love it) but as usual: most of the "interesting tech" was found in a Tesla 10 years ago e.g. unlocking via app, venting windows, locating vehicle, pre-conditioning, etc. It's only worth noting this since Doug claims it as new/something he's never seen before.

I'm 10 minutes in and I honestly can't believe that this SUV manages to be this perfect and still offer THREE rows of seating.

(which I personally don't need, but that's amazing!)

I wonder how the door handles will fare over time. Seems like a door handle that pops out like that might be susceptible to breakage with constant pulling on it. More range would be good. I wouldn’t be able to do a trip to my favorite campsite, do a little wheeling and make it to a charging station to recharge on the way home. Otherwise pretty cool. Still think the fronts look like either the Michelin man, or the Sta-Puff marshmallow man with the oblong headlights and the light bar in between

Not sure about others, but if I'm going to be putting those back seats up and down a lot... Then manual is the way to go, because less tech to fail. I personally like the fact it isn't reliant on a motor

4:28 I mean they kinda do, like you said G wagon, Benz, the new Grand Cherokee and wagoneer are kind of boxy, as well as the chevy/gmc/cadillac big SUVs, there's also jeeps and depending on what you call "boxy" a Land rover sport and a cullinan are also relatively boxy.

Love your Enthusiasm! I invested in Rivian last year. I’m in the red right now but still hoping this becomes the next Tesla in which case I’ve told myself I’d use the money to buy the Rivian. I’m also looking forward to a two drive wheel model at a lower price. We are long retired and I’d want the Rivian to replace the CRV’s we’ve been leasing for the past 20 years. So I hope they lease but also I’m thinking maybe instead of leasing for 3 years I’d buy a Rivian and keep it for 10. Also , how about Roadside Assistance and Servicing? I’m assuming low maintenance but I’d have to have reassurances for the what ifs. Will Rivian partner with other brand dealerships so you can access services through them? I realize you’re not a sales rep but if you were you’d sell a million of them. Thanks!!!

Wow. I am neither financially capable, nor logistically able to purchase this or the R1T, nor do I particularly champion electric vehicles. But I am extremely happy to see Rivian finally coming to market with such great vehicles. I was skeptical. But they're actually doing it. I hope they continue down their path of success.

@MJA Reacts that doesn't change the fact they will go bankrupt making street queens. personally i dont really think we alll neeeeed newwww shiny cars allllllll the time but here we are trying to ya know, bE sUsTaInAbLe! because it makes those who can afford it feel all nice and fuzzy inside as they are driving by all the poor oil guzzling peasants in their 80k techmobile so they can get groceries and visit grandma. it will be a quick and easy way to tell who's a nobody and who really matters. OH OH! but all those little doodads are super cool! yup the flashlights, speaker and random extra gimmicky storage! on a normal off-roading vehicle you know what most people usually put for storage? extra FUEL! because usually going off road means being away from infrastructure that provides resources. this truck is SO HEAVY that it will actually perform terribly in almost any situation because it will SINK. not only that it will get stuck, if you need to jack it up or pull it out that will require more forces as well. it's a street queen regardless of anything you said, bro.

The "Value" score should be a 10 as well, so this should score a 76. It is quicker than a X5M, but carries more people, has more cargo space, and is much cheaper Compare it to the new Escalade V, and you save $40k, and it does 0-60 over a second quicker? There is nothing that compares to it favorably, hence a 10 value score is necessary

I like the size of the R1T and the R1S, but the glass top is a turn off. I do like the minimalist interior. Other midsize trucks could learn from Rivian on the interior.

@Ethan not only the 1000 miles battery would put a truck into a Rolls Royce price range, but also will make it heavier than a couple of Humvees. At that point a much greater part of the battery would be used to just haul the vehicle itself. So no - it's not as linear of a dependency as for the gas vehicles. R T is spot on here.
Miles Comparetto

@R T Do you have a source for that? I just skimmed through the report and the only mentions of 2100 are for very grave conditions. Projections for when we will be ok by 2100 are clearly pointing out that is only if we continue to make changes to our infrastructure, lifestyles, diet etc. I really don't think you know what the hell you are talking about. If we do nothing:"Taking the high-carbon pathway, the worst of the scenarios, would see global temperatures rise by more than 4ºC by the end of the century. To add some perspective to that scenario, the world has not seen temperature increases of more than 2.5ºC over such a short space of time for more than 3 million years."-IPCC

@Brent Webb Hydrogen should have been the future. Refuel times and range comparable to gasoline, can be generated onsite, waste is only water and CO2. If hydrogen development had seriously started thirty years ago instead of EV, we'd have at-home hydrogen generators by now.

This really is a fantastic SUV/EV. Not worth the money they're asking, but it's probably the best jack-of-all-trades EV out there at the moment. Unfortunately, for those of us not in the 1%, it's just something we'll have to look at on THvid.

Since when is an $85K vehicle limited to those in the "1%"? Anyone with a 6-figure income and some sense of personal finance skills should be able to comfortably afford one of these, if they so choose. I'm sorry, but $50-60K vehicles are the new normal, and this really isn't that much more expensive if you think about it.

@ttoommssmmiitthh The single screen thing works fine. 4+ years now in Model 3's for me. So much can be done with voice control and the rest saved to your driver profile. How often do you need to adjust your mirrors or steering wheel? Typically once and save it to your profile and forget it...really no hassle IMO.
ttoommssmmiitthh 2 หลายเดือนก่อน
I agree with you, its a fair price. I do hate the "do everything in the screen." Feel like thats the only thing I dont like about this car. I can't even tilt my wheel or adjust my vents without going into a screen, yet I have to be hands free in order to make a call.

How you gave this a 7 in styling, 9 in fun factor, and a 7 in cool factor over a Model X Plaid with a 5, 7 and a 6 is very confounding. I realize you prefer big boxy SUV’s, but scoring doesn’t make sense comparing it to a Model X Plaid imo. Not to mention you didn’t mention charging network in comparison to other electric vehicles. Great SUV for sure, just odd choices in conclusions. IMO.

I love smart screens and tech as much as everyone else but the fact that you have to go into the screen and through a bunch of different layers just to change your mirror position would be hard to get used to. I think I like a mix of new and old school. That said, beautiful SUV.

Well Doug... my BMW X5 35d (diesel) gets up to 36 mpg (imperial gallon). Giving it a 600 mile plus range. Now when I stop for fuel it takes about 10 minutes to fill pay and drive away to do another 600 miles. Your Rivian can't compete in the real world because of the RANGE it has. If you drive that behemoth in the real world of 20 or 30 Below Zero F. weather, you are going to have to stop and charge that Pig every 150 to 200 miles depending on the wind. So, I ask as to how on earth you can compare this thing to a real air polluting internal combustion vehicle. The power that that thing uses will be 2 times the carbon footprint as my dirty BMW . By the way don't think that all that GREEN POWER has not cost our world 's health dearly either, as it is 125% more efficient to burn coal to produce power than it is to have any and all of the components of GREEN ENERGY produced. Just don"t understand as to how a seemingly smart chap as yourself could be brainwashed into falling for the EV LIE.

Well, I wish I could be as enthusiastic as Doug, but I am not. And not just for a Rivian, that goes for every car that has been built since day one. It either has what I want or it doesn't. But there is no reason to go overboard like Doug does. Why did they make it shorter that the pick-up? A shorter wheelbase means less driving comfort. And all that electronic stuff that can be done is all ok, as long as it works. However, if it quits to work you are looking for big repair bills. Since everything is controlled by the computer, good luck to get it fixed in the middle of nowhere. Thanks, but no thanks!

@itp5x5 when you see nothing but comments of such grandeur from people like christopher B you should be extremally skeptical. I've seen this too many times comments like this ageing like milk. I'm not here to make you feel good or tell you some hyped up speculation. these companies dont care about you, the CEO gets paid FAT if they sell cars or not. they are set for life and at this point it really dont matter if they go bankrupt or not. the board members ARE PAID while you sit on the side literally paying them and waiting for a miracle. good luck but please start being more open minded and try not to follow the hype. typically retail traders like yourself are the last ones on the hype train as it's losing steam.

I wanted to see more of the navigation/android auto function. It seems a bit too expensive for how sparce the interior felt. A feature I always look for now is visibility from the driver seat. I absolutely love the Tesla ModelX winshield, and the Canoo Windshields. The Rivians do look really sweet though.

Yeah that's the one gripe I have with EV's is how empty the interior is. I really don't like how everything is done from the screen. Like those touch climate vents are such a waste of money on actuators and motors... Just put regular vents in the thing.

Thanks for the video! It seems like you should have owned a Tesla for a month before reviewing the Rivian -- many of the things you are surprised and fascinated by have been standard in the Tesla app in cars for a while. Vent windows? Unlock anywhere in the world via app? Walk up unlock? Camp mode? Dog/Pet Mode? Car wash mode? All Available with Tesla too. Maybe even other EVs too. What is cool in the Rivian: Air Compressor, AC Inverter, flat fold down seats, self leveling for camping, way more USB-C outlets, Camp Courtesy mode. Thanks for the review!

I know it's clever but having to go to a screen and menus to enable a control to move an air vent is not better than just sliding it with your finger, that takes two seconds. Car makers are taking it too far with the control screens. . Also, they are difficult to touch when car is moving and you have to take your eyes off the road for longer. Lots of people have said this but if we don't, that's what we'll end up with in every car. Touch screens are fine for reading data / maps etc when you are stopped. Under way they are not as functional as buttons, switches and round controls. They just aren't. These are quicker and can be done without looking once you've learned them. Tech is great. Tech for techs sake is not.
