From Standard to Optional: Changes in Rivian R1’s Feature Set

With all the changes that came today with the new second-generation R1T and R1S, there have been some changes to what is standard versus optional with the R1 vehicles. Let’s look at what used to be included, which is now an optional feature.

Air Compressor – $350

The air compressor was a standard feature on the first-generation R1T and R1S. For those looking to get the second-generation R1 vehicles, this is now a $350 addon (standard on Tri-Motor and Quad-Motor).

Rivian Premium Audio – $1,750

Original Rivian R1T and R1S vehicles were equipped with a Meridian Audio-made system, which was later removed in favor of an in-house Rivian audio system. Second-generation models come standard with the base audio system, but for $1,750 (standard on Tri-Motor and Quad-Motor), you can upgrade to the Rivian Premium Audio system. 960-watt output and 19 speakers throughout the cabin.

Camp Speaker – $450

First-generation R1 vehicles featured the Camp Speaker as a standard feature, but that has been replaced with a simple drawer for the area where the camp speaker would go. But, if you want the Camp Speaker, you can dish out $450 to add it to your new vehicle.

Front Tow Hooks

The base variant of the R1T and R1S (Adventure Dual-Motor, Standard Battery) no longer comes standard with the front tow hooks. If you want to add the tow hooks, you must dish out an additional $7,000 to upgrade to the Adventure Dual-Motor, Large Battery pack. Tow hooks were standard on all variants of the first-generation vehicle and still are on all but the base trim.
