Re: bed size...
The R1T’s 4-foot-6-inch bed, is plainly mid-sized territory - shorter than a Tacoma’s smallest bed, and at least with a Tacoma you can opt for a 6’ long bed instead.
In all, even with the Rivian’s frunk, an argument could be made that it’s still decidedly mid-sized in cargo aspects because again the Tacoma comes with a longer bed standard or can be fitted with a long bed.
Rivian is a decidedly mid-sized truck in functionality, but a short though otherwise full-size exterior dimensioned truck for no good reason.
Maybe it’s hard, afterall, to build competitive trucks.
RIVIAN Aside: see 54" and then extended arms in this short video
Re: 54 -- [aside: Rivian has pretty cool extended arms so the tailgate extends out several more inches when down. RJ talked to Munro about it in a show-n-tell video and people have showed it for hauling things including motorcycles]
