Equally capable both on-road and off-road
Quad-Motor All-Wheel Drive
Rivian Quad-Motor AWD provides quick power and independently changes torque at all four wheels for fine wheel control in almost any situation. Proactively regulating power at each wheel enables 4-wheel torque vectoring, which allows each wheel to independently help accelerate, decelerate, and even turn the vehicle, offering the highest level of performance. degrees of off-road capability and on-road performance.
Rivian Quad-Motor AWD is made up of two Dual-Motor drive units, one for the front and one for the rear axles. A tiny 415 horsepower engine with 413 ft-lbs of torque powers the front axle. A greater torque derivative in the rear produces 420 horsepower and 495 ft-lbs of torque. They provide a total of 835 horsepower and 908 ft-lbs. of torque for a 0-60 time of as little as 3 seconds, while also providing remarkable efficiency and immediate adjustment for every condition.
Dual-Motor All-Wheel Drive
Rivian Dual-Motor AWD is powered by a single motor on both the front and back axles, providing quick power. Our Dual-Motor AWD system offers a compact and lightweight design that delivers great power output and control by smoothly merging the essential components into a single drive unit.
Rivian Dual-Motor AWD has two motors that are expected to provide over 600 horsepower and 600 ft-lbs of torque for a 0-60 time of less than 4 seconds. * The Dual-Motor system biases more torque rearward with a larger gear ratio on the rear motor and also offers front-to-rear torque management, giving a high level of on-road and off-road performance, towing capacity, and all-weather traction.
Depending on your demands, you may pick between three different battery sizes: Standard pack (an estimated 260+ miles — available on Dual-Motor only), Large pack (an EPA estimated 314 miles), and Max pack (an estimated 400+ miles).
Three tires built specifically for your Rivian
We collaborated with Pirelli to design and optimise three tyres expressly for our cars’ unique capabilities. While each tyre is designed to provide a particular driving experience, all three provide excellent all-around performance and range.
20″ All-Terrain Size: 275/65R20 116H
Our 20 “All-Terrain tyres can go anywhere and do anything. These tyres, designed to handle anything from rock crawling to dirt trails, are terrific in normal settings but shine when the tarmac runs out and the road becomes bumpy. We provide two designs for the 20 “Both wheels are forged and machined for a greater strength-to-weight ratio.
21″ Road Size: 275/55R21 116H XL
The 21″ all-season road tyres offered with the R1T and R1S will help you optimise your range year-round due to their ultra-low rolling resistance. The aluminium alloy wheels are manufactured utilising a unique tilt-casting method that ensures strength and homogeneity, while clip-in aerodynamic covers minimise drag while still allowing for brake cooling.
22″ Sport Size: 275/50R22 115H XL
The 22″ Sport tires provide excellent traction for on-road handling for individuals wishing to maximise their Rivian’s performance in the spring, summer, and fall months. The unique compound of this tyre gives a great grip on wet and dry road surfaces, improving acceleration, braking, and cornering characteristics. The 22″ Sport wheel is made using the same tilt-casting technique as our 21″ Road wheels.
Depending on the model, you can improve comfort, efficiency, or performance by adjusting the ride height, suspension stiffness, accelerator pedal responsiveness, all-wheel-drive system, and other features.
This mode automatically adapts to the majority of driving circumstances. It keeps the suspension at the regular height around town to absorb bumps and potholes, and lowers the suspension at highway speeds for better aerodynamics and increased range.
This mode dramatically reduces body lean in corners by lowering and stiffening the suspension. Sport mode, when combined with increased torque vectoring, gives superb cornering performance. It also modifies the accelerator pedal responsiveness of the vehicle to generate even more acceleration.
For light off-roading on dirt roads and trails, this is the usual off-road setting. This setting raises the ride height of the R1T to allow for more wheel travel and softens the suspension for a smoother ride over bumps and potholes.
Off-Road Rock Crawl
This mode is intended for the most difficult off-road circumstances, such as climbing over boulders or descending steep grades. It raises the ride height to a high setting, balancing stability and clearance, with room to go higher if necessary. Vehicles with Quad-Motor AWD may also adjust torque for each wheel independently, allowing for accurate, slow-speed driving over rough terrain.
This mode enables torque vectoring to proactively distribute power between all four wheels (front to rear only on Dual-Motor) while adjusting the traction and stability control systems to provide exceptional performance and control at greater off-road speeds on gravel roads.
This mode is intended for experienced drivers who want to drift their R1T on a closed course. It employs torque vectoring to transfer power proactively to all four wheels (front to rear only on Dual-Motor) and greatly lowers traction control intervention, enhancing the fun-to-drive experience in snow, sand, and loose mud.
This mode, designed to improve range for longer trips, converts the R1T to front-wheel drive solely and lowers the vehicle to a more aerodynamic stance at highway speeds.
This mode retains the R1T in all-wheel drive and gives you the most available torque, allowing you to tow up to 11,000 pounds. Trailer brake gain adjustments are included for increased stopping power.
Aluminum alloy, ultra-high-strength steel, and carbon fiber structures are developed for increased safety. The low center of gravity of our platform helps to minimize rollover and keeps you firmly planted. A variety of driver assistance systems are included on all Rivian vehicles to help improve safety even further.
Independent air suspension
Independent air suspension provides nearly 6 inches of vertical adjustment, allowing you to tune your vehicle’s ride height for greater handling, comfort, aerodynamics, and stability with varied payloads. Automatic ride-height levelling also helps to balance your vehicle for improved handling when towing heavy loads. Choose a lower riding height for best efficiency and range.
Active damping adjusts your suspension by monitoring the road and driver inputs every 5 milliseconds. Damping rates are customizable, which improves comfort and steering response. You can go firmer for tighter road hugging or softer for absorbing impact on uneven terrain.
Hydraulic roll control
Our electro-hydraulic roll control system substitutes a mechanical anti-roll bar to give your vehicle more freedom in how it responds while also providing significantly more breadth in vehicle body control, stability, ride comfort, and off-road performance on rough terrain. On the road, the technology reduces body roll, allowing you to ground your vehicle in tight turns for sports-car performance. Off-road, it absorbs vibrations to decrease ‘head toss,’ while optimising wheel articulation and providing increased traction and comfort on rough terrain.
Reinforced underbody shield
A multilayer shield of high-strength steel, alloyed aluminium, and carbon fibre composite protects our vehicle’s underbody. The shield is engineered to absorb, deflect, and distribute impact force for maximum protection in the most extreme off-road conditions.

There are nearly 62 cubic feet of storage between the bed, front trunk, rear storage bin, under-seat compartments, centre console, and gear tunnel — solutions for any user.
Everyone’s truck bed requirements are unique. Some people prefer it to be smaller for easier movement. Others would like it to be longer for specific goods and transporting. We designed ours to meet both requirements. We designed the tailgate with a gooseneck hinge mechanism for maximum length, increasing the truck floor to 83.9 inches with the tailgate down. The bed length is 54.1 inches with the tailgate up, making it easier to travel around and park every day.
Gear Guard security cables
Our remote monitoring system includes a cut-resistant locking cable that wraps around your equipment and plugs into the bed wall, immediately linking to the car security system. Remotely monitor your equipment with the Rivian app and receive quick notifications whenever the system detects an interruption. A camera on the bed also keeps an eye on your stuff.
You can set your desired air pressure output up to 150 psi via a digital interface. It has a quick-connect nozzle and a hose that reaches all four wheels. There’s also a hose and nozzle set for bicycle tyres, inflatable rafts, and other items that fits neatly in the Gear Tunnel entrance. All R1S and R1T cars come standard with our air compressor.
We have two lockable tonneau cover options that will protect you from mild rain. With the stroke of a button, our motorised tonneau cover integrates into the truck and slides automatically. It can also be controlled remotely using our app. Our manual tonneau is simply removed and stored in four lightweight pieces in the Gear Tunnel.
Lift the bed floor to have access to additional weatherproof, lockable storage. The compartment accommodates a full-size spare tyre and also serves as a cooler, with an incorporated plug for simple draining.
Heavy-duty tie-downs are built into the four corners of the bed walls, and the bed rails have four accessory ports for additional tie-down support.
Include your ski boots, dirty trail shoes, and other equipment. Our Gear Tunnel is intended to house all of the items that would otherwise be difficult to store. The side doors include storage chambers inside that can carry up to 250 pounds, allowing you to step up to load stuff onto the roof or sit while preparing.
A two-burner induction stove serves as the kitchen’s focal point. The induction top cooks food quickly, is easy to clean, and is windproof – ideal for outdoor cooking. It is energy-efficient but also powerful at 1,440 watts. Our solution to the dishwasher is a 4-gallon water tank, pump, collapsible sink, and spray faucet.
