0

The upcoming 2021 Rivian R1T is an all-electric pickup truck that will cause a huge splash in the automotive world. Whatsoever, it already did, thanks to the Rivian’s promises and predicted figures. R1T will offer an impressive driving range and acceleration. On top of that, the American startup brand said there will be no concept. What you see right now is how the final product will look like.

The design looks futuristic and this pickup will be available in crew cab variant only. The 2021 R1T is no ordinary pickup. It comes with four electric motors, one for each wheel. R1T comes with height-adjustable suspension and off-roading is possible as well. It seems like the rest of the pickup world should be scared, for a reason.

Dimensions

It is an interesting topic. New 2021 Rivian R1T is not as big as the full-size models. Still, it is larger the trucks in the mid-size segment. This pickup offers a 135.8 inches long wheelbase and it is available in crew cab only. Just to compare, Ram 1500 is rated at 144.6 inches and Honda Ridgeline at 125.2 inches. But here is the thing.

Rivian R1T also offers a double-wishbone front and multilink rear suspensions. Thanks to that, height-adjustable air springs can significantly raise or lower the height. In normal circumstances, this pickup offers 11 inches of ground clearance. You can shrink that to 9.4 inches or raise to 14.2 inches. Still, the 2021 R1T is 6 inches longer than the mentioned Ridgeline model.

Rivian R1T Power and Driving Range

The upcoming 2021 Rivian R1T will ride on a skateboard platform. This architecture contains four electric motors, battery pack and the suspension. Each motor delivers 147 kilowatts and total output is rated at 562 kW. That is 753 horsepower. How cool is that? The good thing about having four motors is the acceleration and torque vectoring. In that way, Rivian will avoid locking differentials. As for the battery packs, they will be offered in three different sizes.

Ultimately, that means three different driving ranges. Rivian said the two battery packs will be in the offer right from the beginning. A 135 kWh pack will provide around 300 miles and 180 kWh pack over 400 miles. Rivian promised for its R1T pickup to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just three seconds. That is a supercar figure. Moreover, towing capacity will be rated at 11,000 pounds. R1T will charge from 0 to 80 percent in just 50 minutes on a DC fast charger.

Interior Features and Storage

From the inside, a new 2021 Rivian R1T will deliver leather and wood materials. Large displays are in the offer, along with the impressive safety features. Even the cabin will look futuristic and packed with the latest systems and features. The manufacturer also said that Level 3 autonomy is in the works. However, the highlight of the interior will be storage. The all-electric pickup has no engine upfront. Rivian will use this area to create the front trunk. On top of that, R1T pickup will get a “gear tunnel”. It is a lockable space behind the cab and under the bed.

2021 Rivian R1T Price and Release Date

However, this variant will arrive later in 2021. Knowing that this is the smallest battery pack, stronger versions will surely cost significantly more.

Thanks to the numerous trim levels, the comfort will be great.

The base model will get cloth upholstery and pretty much the basic stuff. Higher trims will offer leather seats and more safety aids. New dashboard and a new shape of the vents are a possibility. However, we don’t believe in so many innovations. Another interesting topic is Dakota’s safety systems and driver-assistance features.

This will be the optional engine choice and it will deliver over 300 horses.

Both powertrain options will use the same 8-speed automatic transmission. On top of that, a 4WD setup will be optional. When it comes to diesel, Dodge will surely offer this type of engine on some markets. A 3.0-liter six-cylinder is the most likely outcome. This engine cranks out 260 horsepower and up to 440 lb-ft of torque.

2021 Ram Dakota Price and Arrival Date

New mid-size pickup will cost slightly above $25,000. The upcoming 2021 Ram Dakota will compete in the strongest pickup truck segment.

2020 Ford Bronco Pickup To Rival The New Jeep Gladiator

0

New rumors in the automotive industry are suggesting the 2020 Ford Bronco Pickup. This model will reportedly rival new Jeep Gladiator. According to those rumors, pickup version will be based on the Ford Ranger truck. Whatsoever, two models will share underpinnings.

Blue Oval will deliver a four-door pickup with removable roof panels, rugged appearance, and powerful engines. Ford clearly has big plans for Bronco. After the original launch of its SUV, Ford will deliver two-door and four-door variants. Moreover, hybrid and Raptor versions are in the works. A pickup truck is the latest plan that should treat the Jeep Gladiator.

2020 Ford Bronco Pickup Appearance Is Similar to the Ranger

Exterior will be extremely important for the upcoming 2020 Ford Bronco Pickup. We expect an appearance similar to the Ranger, but more rugged. However, Ford must avoid the stories about Bronco Pickup as an alternative for the Ranger model. Whatsoever, new Bronco will only focus on rivaling the Jeep Gladiator.

On the other hand, the battle between Bronco SUV and Jeep Wrangler will play an important role. We don’t know much about the exterior design. A four-door body pickup is rumored at the moment. On top of that, Bronco Pickup will arrive with a small bed in the back. Removable roof panels are a must for Ford, along with aggressive styling and unique features.

2020 Ford Bronco Pickup interior

Cabin Will Be Tech-Rich

Logically, Blue Oval will deliver the interior similar to the cabin of the Bronco SUV. Of course, pickup truck variant will arrive with fewer premium features. The upcoming 2020 Ford Bronco Pickup will surely be an upscale pickup from the inside. On the other hand, Gladiator will also get a lot of cool stuff. Knowing that Ford will surely aim for the same consumer base as the Gladiator.

That means Ford will copy some of the Gladiator’s amenities and styling cues. So far, everything is pure speculation. However, we know what Gladiator has to offer. For the start, Jeep delivers a room for five and the cabin is tech-rich. Comfort is on a high level and interior is covered in soft surfaces and high-quality materials. A 5.0-inch display is standard and Ford will surely try to beat that with the 7.0-inch unit. Lockable storage, wireless speakers and removable doors and windshield are a must as well.

2020 Ford Bronco Pickup Powertrain Rumors

Blue Oval needs to deliver an electric powertrain. Rivian and Tesla are clearly sending a message to Ford with its latest pickup trucks. Ford isn’t trying to beat Gladiator model only as the bigger picture is more important. The all-new 2020 Ford Bronco Pickup could get some sort of electrification.

Jeep Gladiator is available with a conventional 3.6-liter V6 that produces 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. On the other hand, a 2.3-liter turbo-four from Ranger truck could be standard in Bronco Pickup variant. This engine is generating 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. That is more than enough to beat the Gladiator model.

2021 Jeep Gladiator

The price of the upcoming 2020 Ford Bronco Pickup is easy to determine. As a Gladiator’s rival, Bronco Pickup will start in the same range, around $30,000 for the base trim level.

2020 Nissan Titan Pro 4x First Look

0

Nissan has no chill when it comes to its lineup of pickup trucks. Besides Titan and Frontier regular versions, Titan offers plenty of different variants. For example, Titan XD and Titan Warrior are available. However, the 2020 Nissan Titan Pro 4x attracts the biggest interests for now. Speaking of this model, new spy photos are available. It seems like the off-road pickup will look tougher this time. Testing vehicle was spotted in Michigan a few weeks ago.

We can spot plenty of exterior upgrades. That includes small tweaks on the body and a couple of new or modified features. The interior will get some changes as well. For instance, new infotainment display is the highlight of the latest cabin changes. Under the bonnet, Titan Pro 4x will continue to deploy a 5.6-liter V8. However, some speculations are suggesting improved fuel economy.

2020 Nissan Titan Pro 4x

The off-road-oriented pickup was spotted in the streets of Farmington Hills in Michigan. The 2020 Nissan Titan Pro 4x version will introduce plenty of exterior modifications.

That includes new LED running lights and a new shape of the headlights. A grille is redesigned, along with the bumpers. At the back, Titan Pro 4x will introduce redesigned taillights. We believe that Nissan will offer some new off-road equipment. On top of that, new features will be optional. The same could happen with the new optional wheels.

Improved Safety and More High-Quality Materials

In one of the spy shots, the interior layout looks different. That includes the red section drastically larger. The 2020 Nissan Titan Pro 4x will get a new infotainment touchscreen. As we can see, a new unit is larger as well. On top of that, we believe for the new screen to be offered as standard. This is a huge update, as the previous display didn’t satisfy the needs of the customers.

Physical controls are now moved below the all-new touchscreen. That means you can forget about the buttons on each side of the unit. Surely, Nissan will introduce even more updates from the inside. However, we couldn’t spot any differences, besides the new display. Customers can expect improved safety and more high-quality materials.

2020 Nissan Titan Pro 4x side

2020 Nissan Titan Pro 4x Powertrain Specs

To this moment, powertrain changes are a mystery. Surely, the 2020 Nissan Titan Pro 4x will keep its existing 5.6-liter V8. First reports are suggesting a new and optional engine. However, a more likely outcome is the current unit with a couple of updates. Nissan plans to improve its fuel economy. Now, the second reports are predicting slightly more power for the existing powertrain. Both outcomes seem to be realistic. For the current model, powerful V8 produces 390 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque. A seven-speed automatic transmission is offered as standard.

The 2019 model can tow up to 10,000 pounds. Now, we can maybe hope for slightly more pounds. No matter what happens with the current engine, improvements are very likely.

Price and Release Date

The upcoming 2020 Nissan Titan Pro 4x will get a small jump in price. That means we can expect for this pickup to start at around $40,000.
