Rivian Rock Crawl to Rally: See All the R1T’s Drive Modes in Action

Rivian showcased all the various drive modes built into the Rivian R1T Electric Pickup to address all the skeptics out there.

So you’ve heard of Rivian and know it’s an electric pickup truck with a lot of hoopla. But maybe you’re uncertain just how capable this groundbreaking truck really is.

Rivian released this video that demonstrates the R1T electric pickup truck tackling eight different scenarios: Sport, Off-Road Drift, All Purpose, Off-Road Auto, Off-Road Rock Crawl, Off-Road Rally, Conserve, and Towing.

Each scenarios tests a unique driving mode, and each mode allows drivers to adjust ride height, suspension stiffness, accelerator pedal response, all-wheel drive, and more — all to optimize for comfort, efficiency, or performance in virtually any terrain.
