How does the upcoming Rivian R1T electric pickup truck compare to a Ford F-150?
Our buddy Sean Mitchell at AllThingsEV.info obviously must forecast the future. As we sit and ponder what would make a fantastic article, along comes the new video from Sean. We were just talking last week about a much-needed comparison between the Rivian R1T and a current pickup truck, such as the F-150. Lo and behold, Sean's terrific new video falls in our lap.
As we recently reported, Sean has turned a new leaf in his video coverage and content. While he made his way into the business as a small side gig after becoming a devoted Tesla fan, it opened his eyes to the EV segment as a whole. Now, Sean is providing more frequent videos and including coverage of many electric vehicles, comparisons, events, unveilings, etc. We believe he does a stellar job picking topics that will appeal to and assist people in their EV-related endeavors. In addition, Sean's reports are heavily researched, detailed, and easy to understand. Not to mention the fantastic charts.
So, what did Sean learn as he compared the Ford F-150 to the Rivian R1T electric truck?
He takes a look at the two in the categories that matter most to pickup truck shoppers. Below, we've included a gallery of all Sean's outstanding charts:
Keep in mind, the Rivian truck was specifically designed to appeal to one of two primary breeds of pickup truck lovers. This truck is not for the group that buys a truck only for the work aspect. Instead, it's for those who buy a truck for the versatility, power, and capability when they need it, but revel in the comfort, convenience, and tech features that make for a solid daily driver.

Video Description via Sean Mitchell on YouTube:
***I found the vehicle newton meters data for the 135 kWh and 180 kWh batteries: 1,120 nm or 826 lb-ft. For the 105 kWh battery it is: 560 nm = 413 lb-ft. The 14,000 nm was for ground torque, which clearly is different.***
