Rivian R1T: An Electric Truck Designed for The Outdoors

When it comes to adventure, nothing tops the excitement and thrill of driving a pickup truck. Whether off-roading through fields or maneuvering around sharp bends, there's nothing quite like the feeling of controlling such a powerful machine and making your own style. This five-seat, fully electric pickup offers some unique and exciting features centered around the outdoors that help it make the perfect daily driver for outdoor enthusiasts and those looking for a new toy to tear up the dunes or off-road trails.

Whether you need room for friends and family or space for your Overlanding gear, the Rivian R1T has it covered. The R1 T's cabin is comfortable and spacious, with plenty of room to stretch out. This electric vehicle seats up to five people in a spacious and comfortable interior. Stylish materials, such as vegan "leather" seats, and your choice of 3 color schemes give it an upscale appearance. The dashboard features a 15.6-inch landscape-oriented infotainment display, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and rear-seat occupants also have a 6.8-inch screen of their own mounted on the back of the center console. With over 62 cubic feet of storage between the bed, front trunk, rear storage bin, under-seat compartments, center console, and gear tunnel, this vehicle has enough space to go out on the trail with all of your adventure gear.

The Rivian R1T is packed with tech features that enhance your driving experience. Driver+ is standard on every R1T, with 11 cameras and 360 degrees in the field of vision. With Driver+ engaged, your car will automatically steer and adjust speed on your command. Other premium perks include Bluetooth pairing and a wireless charging pad on the center console. It also features built-in Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity, so you can stay connected wherever your adventure leads you. Finally, with the 6 onboard outlets (4 120V & 2 12V), you'll have the power to keep all your favorite devices charged and ready to go.

With up to 400+ miles of range depending on the battery pack and motor selected and a claim of going from 0-60mph in 3 seconds, Rivian is well-positioned to become America's best-selling all-electric pickup truck. But here's what makes this EV stand out: it has a boatload of features that make it not just another electric truck but one with all the bells and whistles. With adjustable air suspension, you'll be able to adjust your ride height, suspension, and more to optimize performance depending on your terrain. It also has all-wheel drive and a maximum towing capacity of 11,000 lbs! You can choose an onboard air compressor and a portable Bluetooth speaker that tucks away in the center console. Rivian also offers the Camp Kitchen Package, including an electric stove, sink, and faucet that tucks away in the Gear Tunnel. The bells and whistles do come at a slight cost, with Rivian's base price set at around $68,000 for the Explore Edition, $73,00 for the Adventure, and for the fully loaded Launch Edition, you'll pay about $122,000.

When it comes to charging the Rivian, you have three options. You can charge off a standard 120V outlet (Level 1), you can use the portable charger or wall charger at 240V (Level 2), or you can fast-charge at a DC fast charger (Level 3). The first two charging methods are fine for everyday use, but Rivian R1 T's Level 3 DC fast chargers will give you the quickest charge possible if you're in a hurry. They'll be located along popular routes and more remote destinations throughout the US and Canada, so there will be a charger nearby wherever you go! And since Rivian vehicles use the Combined Charging Standard plug type used by most electric vehicle makers, a Rivian driver can charge at any public charging station equipped with a CCS outlet.

In the end, the Rivian R1T is a solid choice for an off-road lifestyle. It can carry a good deal of cargo, it's versatile enough to tackle any terrain like a champ, and it's plenty powerful enough to tow heavy trailers. In addition, the high-quality construction and attention to detail put into this vehicle set it apart from its competitors. We can't wait to start designing aftermarket products, and if there is a way to make the Rivian more capable off-road than it already is, Rough Country will find it.
