Rivian’s R1T has beaten pickups from Ford, General Motors, and Hyundai Motor to MotorTrend’s all-truck of the year.
The prestigious title and “Golden Caliper” award accompanying it are highly sought by automakers globally every year.
MotorTrend said the R1T is “the most remarkable pickup truck we’ve ever driven,” in a release announcing the award.
“Rivian re-examined what a modern pickup could be and the result is the most remarkable truck MotorTrend has ever driven, making it arguably the worthiest recipient of the ‘Golden Calipers’ in recent history,” CNBC quotes MotorTrend.
According to MotorTrend, Rivian R1T excelled in each of its six key criteria: safety, efficiency, value, advancement in design, engineering excellence, and performance of intended function.
