    Rumor Mill: Lincoln Getting Rivian-Based EV

    The Lincoln brand is rumored to be the first to gain a new battery-electric vehicle based on Rivian’s skateboard electric vehicle architecture. The rumor comes just a week after Ford Motor Company announced a $500 million equity investment into the electric vehicle startup company.

    Ford disclosed plans to leverage Rivian’s platform for a Lincoln product at a recent employee town hall regarding the Rivian investment, according to sources in attendance. Details of the vehicle were not disclosed and, frankly, likely still being worked out between Ford and Rivian given the newness of the deal.

    So now Mary B can announce that the first EV Silverado will be branded as a Cadillac. Please use a real name not some odd three letter nomenclature. I suggest it be called the "Coulomb"

    A Cadillac pickup may actually go over well. It would definitely step on the Sierra Denali's toes, but luxury pickups are a hot commodity right now.

    I think the time is right for a luxury pickup. Lincoln was ahead of its time with the Blackwood (and learned some lessons on functionality), the market wasn't ready, but I think the market is now ready for a $100k pickup from Lincoln and Cadillac.

    I kinda doubt it will be a pickup, probably a SUV if it's going to be a Lincoln. An electric F150 seems to be a more likely reality.

    It makes more sense to use the platform for a Lincoln SUV

    I still doubt the MARKET for a LINCOLN/CADILLAC BRAND truck is there BUT a DENALI / KING RANCH EV yes
    A EV SUV under the LUX branding I can see and believe NEEDS to exist and be a BESPOKE product and NOT an ESCALADE EV
