Watch Rivian R1T Get Crash Tested By IIHS On Its Way To A Top Safety Pick+

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has just published the results of putting the 2022 – 2023 Rivian R1T electric pickup through its usual barrage of tests. The R1T aced its performance and was given the Top Safety Pick+ rating, marking it as being one of the safest vehicles on the road and only the second pickup in this size bracket to get the award.

The IIHS notes that

The crew cab pickup meets all the requirements for the higher-tier award. All trims come with good-rated LED projector headlights and a standard front crash prevention system that earns superior ratings in both the vehicle-to-vehicle and daytime vehicle-to-pedestrian tests.

It’s really impressive to watch just how well the Rivian R1T took the small- and moderate-overlap front crash tests. The former is the more difficult of the two (and the more recently introduced) and it used to pose a lot of problems for automakers.
