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.***
