Do truck people typically care about comparing sizes? I've never had any serious interest in other trucks because they aren't compelling to me. So I've never really thought to compare sizes.

I did see a guy last week in a Ford with like 4 foot tires on and like a 2 foot lift. I'm guessing he wins every size comparison competition.

I know nobody cares but I guess I’m going to cancel my order, I need a truck that can actually put a sheet of plywood in and not just a fun truck to drive. If it’s even close to the Rivian size it’s not going to work for me. No I’m not just wanting a huge truck because I’m an American, it needs to be useable.
If you're ahead of me in the reservation queue I care that you cancel before actual specs are released as an emotional reaction to a picture with bad perspective. Before you cancel can you let us know your approximate reservation number or position? Otherwise we'll always wonder what could have been.

What's up with the Rivian door handle in open position?

Rivian R1T looks nice. Tesla Cybertruck looks nice. Red Model 3 looks nice.

My bad I guess. When you said "I'm an American" I took that as sarcasm because what the hell does your nationality have to do with anything related to the Cybertruck? People drive trucks all over the planet. Sorry, it's really weird to me when people use vehicles as an extension of their identity.
I said American because every time I mention the size of it some ass hat comments on how Americans have to have huge trucks.

unclear what you’re disappointed in exactly




the preproduction dimensions of the CT bed can fit a piece of plywood just the same as the unveil prototype

they’re both wide enough, and neither has an 8’ bed, so both would require the tailgate to be down for plywood

Just like any truck with less than an 8’ bed
I hope it can, I know I’ll probably not see the 500 mile range in the first production runs but being able to hold full sheets is a must. Tailgate down is fine, like you said most all trucks need the tailgate down anyway.

Added perspective lines. It's shorter, but may be longer.

They both have adjustable air suspension that will give a maximum of approximately 15in of ground clearance, so it all depends on the height settings.

CT looks very small.

And a Tesla next to it... is this not the same intersection where so many random pedestrians happen to get multi-angle shots of the CT when it pulls out ?

It's almost as if..... ah.... never mind. :unsure:

‘I think Rivian driver took the shot.
Yeah, it doesn't look like anyone in the drivers seat. And they blacked out the license plate too. Also there's a "Kilowatts" sticker on the back window of the R1T
