MotorTrend and Rivian complete the first-ever electric off-road transcontinental adventure made possible for the first time thanks to the new 2022 Rivian R1T electric pickup and the Trans-America Trail – from the dunes of Nags Head, North Carolina, on the Atlantic coast, to the cliffs of Port Orford, Oregon, overlooking the Pacific.
The new 2022 Rivian R1T electric pickup truck is uniquely suited for this overland expedition. The first modern EV pickup to hit the market, the R1T—and Rivian as a whole—is conceived around the idea of electrifying the outdoors.
MotorTrend together with Rivian dedicated 43 days to the adventure, split into five legs. We divided into five crews of staffers as we navigated our convoy of two near-production-spec 2022 Rivian R1Ts and our support vehicle, a Ram 1500 TRX. Ride along with us here as we partake in the first-ever electric off-road crossing of the Trans-America Trail.
