The next 2024 Rivian R1T should bring minor improvements only. However, it is almost a brand-new model, so small upgrades are perfectly reasonable. The all-electric truck segment is hot, and the most famous truck-makers are entering the segment. Ford offers the F-150 Lightning version, while GMC offers the iconic Hummer EV truck.
Chevrolet is about to introduce a Silverado EV truck, and Ram 1500 EV is also on the way. With so many established rivals, it will be interesting to see which model will sit on the top. No doubt, Rivian R1T will be right up there with the big dogs.
Rivian R1T Interior Updates
The interior of the 2024 Rivian R1T features a minimalist dashboard design with clean lines combined with a couple of large screens. The majority of the physical controls have been eliminated, and a lot of lovely materials, including some wood panels, give this cabin an upright appearance. Moreover, the cabin is properly furnished.
It has a sizable digital instrument cluster and a larger 16-inch infotainment screen, as well as navigation. It’s interesting that there isn’t smartphone integration for Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, which you would typically have in almost every new vehicle on the market. On the other hand, there is a good selection of standard safety equipment. Generally, it is a very upscale cabin design for a pickup truck.
With the 2024 Rivian R1T nothing will change in terms of the general design. The same layout, which offers so many wonderful exterior elements, will remain. The style, which combines futuristic accents with certain traditional design principles looks very appealing. The truck’s wheelbase, which is over 135 inches, puts it fairly close to conventional full-size trucks.
We especially appreciate the suspension. With an independent multi-link configuration on the back, it is quite advanced. While all versions of this truck can pull more than 11.000 pounds, the design guarantees a comfortable and smooth ride. Of course, the R1T truck also has off-road capabilities, which is very impressive given that it has a 14.5-inch maximum ground clearance.
Driving Range, Configurations
The forthcoming 2024 Rivian R1T is a completely electric pickup truck. Unlike the 2023MY, the next one will have more configurations and variants. Thanks to that, expect models with three different battery capacities. For a start, the base version has a 105-kWh battery, while the mid-trim-level offers a 135-kWh unit. The most expensive variant will provide a large 180-kWh battery pack.
And while the smallest battery pack provides 260 miles of range on a single charge, the largest pack will have 400 miles of driving range. Therefore, the mid-range battery will offer slightly above 300 miles on a single charge. A dual-motor configuration will produce up to 600 horsepower, while a quad-motor setup will have almost 850 hp. The most potent version of the Rivian R1T truck will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in around three seconds.
2024 Rivian R1T Release Date, Price
The price of the new 2024 Rivian R1T will start at around $70,000 or slightly below that. This all-electric pickup truck will represent one of the best models in the electric truck segment and it will go on sale in the last quarter of 2023.
