I'm not a fan of the grill area either. I was really disappointed in the look of the cyber truck. I love the specs on the EVs but right now, the Ford is the only one I'm liking the way it looks.
To reach that price for a Rivian, you must have clicked on every possible option. However, for a $35K Bronco, you must have picked none of the options Yes, Rivian is more expensive but has a lot more capabilities than the Bronco too. The value equation is different for everyone.So I went to the Rivian site and for fun configured myself a build. Had to do the truck since it was cheaper than the SUV (and better looking). My build came to $102k!
Guess I won't be getting a Rivian any time soon. I will just wait for my $35k Bronco.
Along the same lines: Most are paying $5-15K ADM on the new Raptors, whereas for the Rivian you get a $7500 tax break and do not have to deal with the BS of dealers as an added bonus. Then there are the running costs for EVs in general. If you travel an average of 12K miles per year, your savings over a petrol car will be between $3 to 5K per year on fuel and maintenance/up-keep. If you look at operating costs of EVs vs. petrol cars, the numbers start to reverse themselves2021 Raptor with 37's and 801a (luxury) is $82k? Checking every option box is $90k. Nowhere near the $100k mark.
No doubt, but Bronco6g is not about Orange County, Manhattan Beach or Zuma Beach, it's about off-road capability, to go miles from nowhere and take you to the trail less traveled.Now we all know how that story unfolded for the Bronco, right? Very capable in many way without a doubt. However, you can find it in you to give some credit where it is due to a luxury SUV
Thinking of maybe getting a side by side or quad for more extreme crawling and rivian can tow it.
Lol, it looks like a Bronco flavored Unimog which is absolutely titsI would literally sell my family to buy this I love it
I think they will do okay if they can get the R1S and the truck to market without major production issues. Tesla has survived with the idea of "refined" electric sports cars(don't get me started on fit and finish). Rivian should do well since they are solely focused on the adventure off-road types and that market is on fire.Wow factor indeed. Impressed, your call whether it is a negative or positive impression.
Over/under on it being the next automaker to go bankrupt. Opinions?
The 6G Bronco I would run solely on OC and LA streets is the 2-door base model. No frills, great mpg, and the ability to go cruising down PCH in the SoCal sun with the top off.
