Watch A Rivian R1T Strive To Preserve Up With A Ford F-150 Raptor R At Over 100 MPH On Dust


The Rivian R1T is a powerful electrical pickup, with over 800 horsepower in its strongest trim, comfortable air suspension, and a number of digital wizardry that may assist its house owners deal with probably the most difficult terrain.

That stated, it’s not precisely a Baja racer. Not that it’s not able to it, however there are purpose-built machines on the market that may eat dunes and bumpy roads for breakfast. Machines just like the gasoline-powered Ford F-150 Raptor R.

Each have been put to the check on filth roads by our pals over at Edmunds, with off-roader Emme Halle taking turns on the wheel of each pickups.

First up, a dash on a straight piece of filth highway, the place the quad-motor R1T managed to go over 100 miles per hour although, as Emme stated within the video embedded above, she lifted off the throttle at one level as a result of she felt the EV was a bit all over.

With 835 hp and 908 pound-feet of torque courtesy of its four-motor setup, the Rivian R1T accelerated from zero to 60 mph in a smidge over 5 seconds and completed the quarter mile in 13.39 seconds. On filth.

Then once more, the 5.2-liter, V8-powered, 700 hp, 640 lb-ft Ford F-150 Raptor R is not any slouch both, particularly on unpaved roads. It’s right here the place the American rally truck shines, and Edmunds’ video proves it as soon as once more, with a 0-60 mph time of 5.35 seconds and a 13.49-second quarter mile. Granted, in these two classes, it was slower than the Rivian R1T, but it surely was faster within the half-mile check and it reached the next high pace.

In comparison with the R1T which rides on air suspension, the Raptor R has coil springs and fancy Dwell Valve Fox shocks (adaptive as an non-compulsory further). That stated, in a 25 mph check to see which automobile was higher at conserving a cup of soda as full as attainable over bumps, the R1T was as soon as once more victorious, underlining its extra snug setup.

However as Emme says within the video, the F-150 Raptor R isn’t for everyone, and neither is the Rivian R1T. Desire a pace machine that may cruise over bumps? Go for the Raptor R. Are you extra of an explorer/adventurer? Then, the Rivian may be your cup of tea.
