Rivian has introduced its configurator for pre-order customers.
Towards the end of 2020, official pricing for the 2021 Rivian R1S SUV and the 2021 Rivian R1T Truck were revealed. The R1T truck is less expensive, starting at $67,500 for the base Explore Package, while the R1S SUV costs $70,000 in base form. We knew there would be a more expensive Adventure Package and Launch Edition, but now Rivian's official configurator has gone live, so we can talk about just how expensive these vehicles can get.
Opting for the Adventure Package brings the price up to $75,000 for the R1T or $77,500 for the R1S. This package adds an off-road upgrade with reinforced underbody protection, Elevation 360-degree audio, heated and ventilated seats, and other interior improvements. These same upgrades also come with the two Launch Edition models, which also add a special Launch Green paint color, 20-inch all-terrain or 22-inch sport wheels, and priority delivery.
The available options for these two vehicles are fairly simple, though they are not inexpensive nor are they identical. For example, both models come standard with a "Large pack" battery offering 300-plus miles of range, but only the R1T is available with a 400-plus-mile "Max pack" for an extra $10,000 on the Explore and Adventure models. The R1T and R1S have the same available colors, including two no-cost options; LA Silver and Glacier White.
Red Canyon, Midnight (black), Limestone (silver), Forest Green, and El Cap Granite (grey) all cost $1,500 extra while Compass Yellow and Rivian Blue are $2,500 options. The Off-Road Upgrade is available separately for $2,000 on the Explore package and numerous wheel options ranging from 20-inches to 22-inches cost between $1,800 to $3,500.
Rivian will also offer a Camp Kitchen Package for $5,000, which includes an induction cooktop, built-in sink, 30-gallon water tank and pump, and a 30-piece prep and Snow Peak cookware set. Inside, the Explore package comes in either Black Mountain or Ocean Coast (white) while a $2,000 Forrest Edge (green) interior is available on the Adventure Package and Launch Edition.
If you add up all of the most costly options on the R1S SUV, the price can reach $85,500. Despite its lower starting price, the R1T truck can reach up to $98,000, mostly due to the $10,000 optional battery pack. These prices put the Rivian models right inline with the upcoming GMC Hummer, which starts at $79,995 and gets up to $112,595.
