I'm surprised it was that cheap!

0-60 in 3 seconds, tows 11,000lbs, 1763lbs payload, 400 mile range, and cheaper than a Tesla.

It's just ugly as hell...

I think if they lose the vertical slots what ever they are for and keep with what looks like a full length horizontal headlight system I could easily see that parked under my carport.

Yeah it's the front end that loses me.

The inside looks really nice, and I love the under seat cargo area they have going on coupled with the "frunk" lol

I agree, I'm not really a fan of any of the new trucks coming out with "nostrils"...

However, my employer is outfitting the Rivian plant in Illinois to make these...So I hope they sell a bunch of them.

I've never strayed far from Ford most of my life, this truck is a game changer if the specs they state are real. I was planning on getting a Raptor but WOW! I am stoked to see what comes of this.

I hope this kicks the other truck manufacturers into gear to start working on their electric pickups. I look forward to seeing an electric pickup truck comparo between the big manufacturers in the next couple of years hopefully.

Definitely a cool machine. On another note, that thing is uglier than sin lol. I've gotta like the looks of what I drive
