Rivian revealed that the future 2024 Rivian R1T would have two motors, various battery sizes, a very modern interior, and a price hike of almost $12,000 in addition to other changes. In case you wonder, Rivian R1T Launch Edition costs around $74,000. We don’t know if this model will cost even more in the future.
In case you didn’t know, the manufacturer presently only offers the quad-motor option, and hasn’t yet launched a model with a dual-motor option. The cost of the Rivian R1T will dramatically increase as a result of all these adjustments. Whatever the case, there shouldn’t be any cosmetic upgrades at the moment.
Rivian R1T Exterior Design
What we like about this model are its clean design, unique exterior colors, and unique front fascia. Additionally, the 2024 Rivian R1T has three different wheel options. In essence, you may choose between 20-inch wheels with all-terrain tires, a wider 21-inch wheel for the improved driving range, and 22-inch wheels for superb handling.
The R1T truck is the only model in its segment that can lower the tailgate electronically. Furthermore, it comes with a rail system that has crossbars for attaching various items. Still, the styling is dominated by an impressive lighting system on the front fascia.
The cabin of the 2024 Rivian R1T is impressive, with high-quality materials and a dashboard with a huge 16-inch touchscreen. It’s interesting to note that this model is among the rarest to include a feature behind the back doors called Gear Tunnel as a standard feature. The interior is spacious, providing room for five occupants.
We appreciate the panoramic moonroof, leather upholstery, and premium Meridian audio system. It is important to note that a Camp Kitchen that slides out of the Gear Tunnel can be purchased as an option. Everything on the inside is modern and upright, so R1T truck will surely provide nice comfort with lots of space for everyone.
Lots of Power, Impressive Driving Range
The forthcoming 2024 Rivian R1T is a fully electric pickup truck. A 250-mile range for a model with two motors is happening, and it will arrive with a 105-kWh battery. Moreover, R1T with four motors is just impressive. Each of the motors drives a different wheel. As a result, the all-wheel drive system is a standard feature.
This configuration, as opposed to the two-motor design, is powered by a larger 135-kWh battery pack with a 315-mile range. According to Rivian, 180-kWh is the biggest battery that is optional. It delivers up to 400 miles of driving range, if not even more. Furthermore, this engine has four motors and can generate more than 800 horsepower and 900 lb-ft of torque. Perhaps the most remarkable boast is the 11,000-pound maximum towing capacity. This indicates that the Ford F-150 Lightning could be outperformed by the R1T.
2024 Rivian R1T Price, Release Date
The price of the 2024 Rivian R1T is not official yet, although we know that the manufacturer plans to increase the price of the truck. The current model starts at $67,000, and R1T Launch Edition will cost $74,000, or slightly above that. The sales will begin next summer.
