For a truck of its size, the R1best-in-class T's towing capacity of 11,000 pounds is nothing short of spectacular.

Even so, the Rivian R1835 T's hp and 906 lb-ft of torque make light work of towing the trailer,

which is perhaps not surprising given the Rivian's towing capacity of up to 11,000 lb.

With the new Rivian R1T and a trailer weighing around 9,000 pounds, we experienced an average reduction in driving range of 45%.

This is slightly better than the Rivians' claimed 50% reduction when towing the maximum 11,000-pound capacity.

The R1massive T's amount of instant torque is obviously useful when hauling, even though the official limit for what an electric pickup can pull is only 11,000.

In a video released on Friday, Rivian claimed that the R1T electric pickup could tow a trailer measuring 30 feet in length and weighing up to 11,000 pounds on Davis Dam grade.

In a recent real-world test, Fast Lane Truck drove an all-electric Rivian R1T pickup up a steep

grade in sub-zero temperatures while towing a trailer (weighing a combined 8,100 pounds/3,674 kilogrammes) and following another pickup.
