With Rivian now having its configurator live and the ability to see pricing, specs, options, etc. I'm a bit torn. I original, just after the LA Auto show (Nov. 2018) pre-ordered the R1T and now have an R1T Max Pack on pre-order, so maybe sometime into 2022 for a possible delivery? When the CyberTruck came out I reserved the Tri-Motor as it has similar performance spec's to the R1T, 0-60, towing, I just need something that pulls >10K. I have a lot of regard for the level of talent at Tesla, but as I've now watched and followed RJ and his team at Rivian, it looks like they have really tested and tortured the R1T. Do we think Tesla will test the CyberTruck as rigorously as Rivian is demonstrating they are? On Pricing, I think they are closer than the first appearance. Whatever we buy and this will be my wife's daily driver, if it's CyberTruck, she said it will need to be wrapped as she said she's not driving a stainless toster. So Tri-Motor at $70K, + wrap (~$4,000) + I would guess like Rivian a possible upgraded wheel/tire ($3,500) package. This put's my guesstimate at $77,500 for Tri-Motor vs $82,500 (after tax credit) for R1T. My hope is I can test drive both of these by early 2022 and be able to make a decision before placing a final order.

I have both on order. We'll see when either/both become available which wins. :)

edit: I must admit I am NOT impressed by Rivian's configurator and its associated information.

As others have said, now Rivian has a huge order from Amazon and possibly others I wonder if they are as committed to the R1T as they should be.

Or if they will build out the service centers anywhere other than around Amazon locations for the first few years.
