Here's a clear look at Rivian's center screen and navigation system. This is apparently a "terrain focused" setting. This was taken in the R1T that's at CES 2020.

Surprised.

Making this a true off-roader is how Rivian will forever win the hearts of enthusiasts which has a big impact for the not so passionate crowd. Toyota sure benefits from that effect, so much they keep producing analog cars well beyond when most automakers would have tapped out.

Yeah Rivian's main priority is tapping into the segment of people that love the outdoors, whether it's off-roading and/or overlanding. The stuff in that screenshot is very impressive, especially on the right side of the screen that shows if your vehicle is level or not.

It's a big feature that's for sure, anyone who takes their Rivian off-road will find it to be very useful.

Based on the battery level shown in the screenshot, referring to the battery icon:
a remaining range of 228 miles while the icon is depicting over 3/4 full could mean an actual real-life range quite less than 300 miles? :unsure:
Thoughts?

Depends on the battery pack they have. I read a lot of the test mules had smaller packs in them. This looks more like them small pack with 250ish range.

Also depends on how they calculate the remaining range. The Tesla Model S seems to go off an average watts per mile ( I think 290 watts per mile) and not how you are driving My S averaged 324 watts/mile in 40k miles So I never get the estimated range my car shows, close but always less. My Grand Cherokee looks at mpg over last 30 miles and calculates range from that. If Rivian does that based on current usage it would be more accurate based on where you are driving So off road would probably be less range.
