Don't get me wrong, I'm going to gladly place an order for an F150L if I get an invite, but you can't really argue that the Platinum is a good value relative to an R1T based purely on feature set.Sorry but the $67k is the base Rivian, might as well compare to Lariat trim. A similarly configured R1T is $91,800. Plus the Rivian is a smaller truck, more like a ranger.
I wish I could have heated and cooled seats with the XLT Sport cloth seats.If your butt is old, like mine, I've been spoiled by some of the 'pampering' lately. I gotta have some of the 'niceties'. Even the bargain PRO model would seem a might bit overpriced for plastic seats and floor...
The Platinum is probably more comparable to a maxed out hybrid limited which compares at 81k. Still a little below the 7.5k rebate, but not much!As far as we know, the Platinum is fully-loaded. A fully loaded ICE platinum is $76K. Trucks cost a lot.
After tax credit, there's a ~$7k difference.
Thats not a bad plan at all. Although I think by that time the BBB will have passed.I think I will reserve a Silverado EV on Jan. 5. If I'm not in wave 1, I may find my preferred configuration sold out, and taking delivery after mid 2022 may mean the tax credit won't be 7500 anymore.
For me that's a "cross that bridge when I get to it" kind of thing. I am just hoping for an invite. It will be rough waiting for two weeks wave after wave if the invite doesn't happen.Thanks admin for the email, I do appreciate the heads up on pricing for the new F150L. I’m so, so, glad they still offer the Pro at the original cost as that will be the truck that I order, IF, I get the invite. I truly do NEED a truck to do…Well, truck things. However, I do not live in my truck, so I can get by without all the frills offered in the other trim levels. What’s got me worried is, IF, I get an invite, what do I do if the Pro trim is sold out? Can I afford the XLT????
