    I imagine you would probably wear thru tires at a much faster rate also.

    7000+ is what I see everywhere online.

    Are you sure that’s not an “8” in the start of the GVWR?

    No, I’m not sure but I thought it looked like a 6. It’s not a very good picture but it’s the only one I found quickly last night. Wanted the actual numbers not Wikipedia numbers.

    Those are surprisingly close to the numbers on my 2002 K2500 Suburban that I used to have. I had a travel trailer then.

    @Turd Ferguson a better picture, it is an 8 not a 6. Maths out to a 7100lb curb weight so another number that doesn’t match any of the others we’ve found so far.

    I think my numbers i found from EVspecs.com may have been for the dual motor, is this from a quad?

    I wonder if they played legal games and upped the GVWR to above 8500lbs to take advantage of the more relaxed regulations for heavy duty trucks.

    I deleted my posts. Just so many numbers floating around and can't seem to find them on Rivians site.

    Nah, the GVWR is just a rating, not an actual weight. In theory it could have a 5800lb curb weight, 1400lb payload rating and a 8500lb gross weight and be legal. I should have mine in the next few weeks and will go over the scales and find out for sure.

    Happen to get in quick on a chat with Rivian....here's what they say on weights.
    No separate sheet breakdown for weights on drivetrains or MaxPacks. I would think the dual and quad motor weights would be different with or without MAxPAcks and model types R1T and R1S.

    Looks like Rivian told Edmund on their review that the curb weight was the same is on the wiki. Leads me to believe this is accurate

    I like how you the article you are quoting is also simultaneously saying that it is the best handling truck ever.

    Rivian didn''t say what weights they quoted me. Regular or large battery. But they just said under 7k curb but with the larger battery that could be correct.

    What’s your problem? Why are you constantly insulting me? Who’s numbers were correct? How about an apology.
