From those patents, our friends over at RivianForums.com dreamed up some slick renders that provide with a look at the various R1T configurations. Here's the whole family rendered below:
One of the renders appears to show a sort of SUV-like look. This would only be possible if the rear section of the R1T cab was removable in some sort of way.
