Strong back seat protection boosts Rivian R1T to TOP SAFETY PICK

A good rating in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s updated moderate overlap front test boosts the 2024 Rivian R1T crew cab pickup to TOP SAFETY PICK+ status.

The updated moderate overlap test adds a dummy in the rear seat, pushing manufacturers to improve safety in the second row. In the test of the R1T, sensors in and around the second-row dummy recorded a low risk of injury to the head, neck, and chest, and the lap and shoulder belt remained properly positioned during the crash. The dummy’s head also remained a safe distance from the front seatback.
