2022-23 Rivian R1T earns Top Safety Pick+ award

Arlington, VA – The 2022-23 Rivian R1T, a new electric large pickup, earns a Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

To earn either of the Institute’s two awards in 2022, a vehicle must earn good ratings in six IIHS crashworthiness evaluations, including the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, original side, roof strength and head restraint tests. It must also be available with a front crash prevention system that earns advanced or superior ratings in vehicle-to-vehicle and daytime vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations.

One good or acceptable headlight system must be available for the lower-tier Top Safety Pick. For the higher-tier Top Safety Pick+, good or acceptable headlights must be standard across all trims.

The R1T crew cab pickup meets all the requirements for the higher-tier award. All trims have good-rated LED projector headlights and a standard front crash prevention system that earns superior ratings in vehicle-to-vehicle and daytime vehicle-to-pedestrian tests.
