    The Rebelle Rally is the all-woman off-road navigation rally that starts in Lake Tahoe, CA. Then it’s down to Nevada, then almost Mexico and the rally ends in the sand dunes of Glamis.

    The Rebelle Rally is no match for the all-electric Rivian R1T pickup truck

    One vehicle I’m most excited to experience someday is the Rivian R1T (and the R1S SUV). This electric upstart is making big promises about the capability of its machines. It’s also not going out and making ridiculous displays, outlandish remarks, manipulating stocks, and generally doing anything it can to turn you off from its wares. […]

    Recently, Rivian created a little publicity event with one of their white R1T test trucks that was covered with various outdoorsy designs. With the help of some paint pens, it became full of color like a giant coloring book in no time. What makes this so smart to me is that it really shows the […]

    Rivian or Tesla? The Electrotruck and Who Does it Better

    |

    As electric cars make their way into everyday life, it’s no surprise that electric trucks are the next frontier. The two most talked-about examples are the Rivian R1T and recently announced Tesla Cybertruck.

  • Hooniverse Asks: Can Rivian pull it off?

    |

    This one seems appropriate for Truck Thursday. After spending a few hours at the 2018 LA Auto Show on Wednesday, I left most impressed by what Rivian brought to the party. The R1T truck and R1S SUV are both uniquely styled, electric machines with promises of big performance and capability. Can this small Michigan automaker […]
