Watch a Rivian R1T pickup claw its way up Hells Gate in Moab
Rivian has finally started shipping the R1T, its first model and one of the first mass-produced electric pickups in the US. Owners don't waste time exploring the outdoors, and footage posted on YouTube shows how the model handles Hells Gate in Utah.
Hells Gate is part of the Sand Flats Recreation Area in southern Beehive State and is a steep, bumpy trail that is almost a rite of passage for off-roaders. It's a challenge to make it to the top; Getting there with an unchanged vehicle is even more difficult. And yet, as the four-minute video shows, the R1T slowly but surely crawls up the canyon, supposedly without the slightest modification and on factory-fitted all-terrain tires.
It's not clear who is behind the wheel. What is almost certain, however, is that the R1T is tackling Hell's Gate for the first time. A long list of off-road focused hardware helps here, including an all-wheel drive system that consists of four motors and an adjustable air suspension system. Ordering the optional off-road package adds 34-inch Pirelli Scorpion all-terrain tires, front tow hooks, skid plates, and additional ride modes that customize the stability control and suspension settings of this 7,000-pound giant.
Rivian's R1T isn't the only highly anticipated car to show its prowess shortly after its launch in Hell's Gate. Ford's much more road-focused Bronco Sport made it admirable in August 2020, while the full-size Bronco made it look simple - even when in reverse.
