New Rivian R1T 2024 Electric Pickup Truck Specs, Review, Redesign – The full-size pickup truck category in the United States has been tremendous, and with Ford raking in more money than any fast food business in the country, it’s understandable that other manufacturers would want a piece of the pie. Rivian, one of Tesla’s biggest competitors, couldn’t wait for any longer after Tesla released the Cybertruck. They are now getting ready to show off their R1T electric pickup truck, which promises to be just as calm as any other truck.
Rivian uses a skateboard platform that tucks the battery pack underneath the passenger compartment to lower the center of gravity while maintaining a vast ground clearance to deliver adventure-oriented electric automobiles. The Rivian R1T starts at $76,000 MSRP and competes against the GMC Hummer EV, Tesla Cybertruck, and Nikola Badger, with various battery packs available to meet the diverse range of hauling needs of buyers.
New Rivian R1T 2024 Redesign
The R1exterior T’s are radical, but not nearly as much as the Cybertruck’s. The truck’s front end features an LED bar light that spans the vehicle’s width and is flanked by two vertical capsule-shaped LED headlights. When the car is linked to a charger, the bar light signals to charge status and looks futuristic. The R1bulky T’s front bumper and lack of a front grille make it look like a vehicle from a bygone sci-fi film.
The flared wheel arches and massive 21-inch wheels with off-road tires make it look the part on the sides. An LED bar light runs the truck’s back end length, and the simplistic bumper design is simple but elegant. The Cybertruck is the most extended vehicle, while the Hummer EV is obnoxiously wide, making us feel that some drive-thrus aren’t even worth testing. The Nikola Badger is nearly as long as a Tesla and almost as wide as a Hummer, yet it is far lighter. The Hummer EV has the lowest ride height, while the other three have significantly higher ride heights.
There are two significant screens in the well-lit, panoramic sunroof cabin of the R1T. The central infotainment screen (including navigation, climate, and comfort settings) is 15 inches, while the driver’s cluster has a 12-inch screen. A dial and two switches on each side of the leather-wrapped steering wheel are for various operations such as volume, tuning, zooming in, and rotating the steering wheel. Whether in adaptive cruise or not, the digital driver cluster displays what the automobile observes, even small people strolling around in front of the car when applicable.
The dash is spotless, with natural-grain wood accents, vegan leather seats, and lightweight floormats that can be hosed off and changed. Rivian emblems and little metal accent pieces are strewn over the inside. Forest Edge, a mossy green; Black Mountain; and Ocean Coast, a gray, are the three color options for the cabin.
The 2024 R1T comes equipped with four electric motors installed on each wheel, which can be paired with one of three battery packs. The highest output is expected to be over 800 horsepower and 900 lb-ft with the giant battery pack, with the peak output projected to be over 800 hp and 900 lb-ft. Due to its lower weight, the R1T with the 135 kWh battery is expected to be the fastest, with a 0-60 mph time of roughly 3 seconds and a quarter-mile sprint time of 9 seconds. The maximum towing capability is approximately 11,000 pounds, while the payload capacity is just under 1,800 pounds.
Rivian has included several valuable innovations in the R1T that make it a capable off-road vehicle. The R1T can do a “Tank Turn” with each motor placed at each wheel, in which the engines rotate the wheels on one side in the opposing direction of the other side. This allows the vehicle to spin quickly, much as a military tank. This clever technology should make driving this big truck easy no matter the weather.
