The 2022 Rivian R1T Is the Most Remarkable Pickup We’ve Ever Driven

  The 2022 Rivian R1T Is the Most Remarkable Pickup We’ve Ever Driven The 2022 Rivian R1T is the first mass-produced electric truck to hit the U.S. market, but that’s hardly the most interesting thing about it. Its electric powertrain notwithstanding, the R1T is unlike any pickup we’ve ever driven—part truck, part sport sedan, and 100 percent amazing. It’s been speculated that pickup buyers are too conservative to embrace electrification, but after our first drive in a pre-production Rivian R1T, both on-road and off-, we think this is the electric truck that will turn them into believers.

  • Chevrolet and GMC confirmed to Car and Driver that the 2022 Silverado and Sierra will be available in a regular-cab configuration, which will be offered either with a standard bed or a long bed.
  • The two-door versions of GM’s full-size trucks will only come on the base trims, the Silverado WT and the Sierra Pro.
  • The standard bed, which measures 79.4 inches, was not available on either truck during the current generation before their 2022 model year facelifts.

Trucks have strayed far from their roots. Originally filling the role of bare-bones workhorses, pickup trucks have become luxury items, with the average price for a full-size truck now over $56,000 as of May 2021, according to Kelley Blue Book. Many trucks never leave the pavement, with their owners opting for svelte, four-door crew-cab models to fit the whole family in comfort. But those who still want a simple truck can rejoice because Chevrolet and GMC have confirmed that the refreshed 2022 Silverado and Sierra will be available as two-door, regular cab models with a standard bed.

There is a caveat, however. If you want the regular-cab, standard-box versions of the General Motors truck twins, you will need to buy the base models. A spokesperson for Chevrolet told Car and Driver that the regular cab, ether with the standard bed or the long bed, will only be produced for the cheapest Silverado WT trim. For the Sierra, a GMC representative affirmed that the regular-cab model with either the standard or long bed will only be offered on the base Pro grade.

This is the first time that the two-door Silverado or Sierra will be available with a standard bed (measuring 79.4 inches) for the current generation. A regular-cab model with the 98.2-inch-long bed could be had on the pre-facelift Silverado and Sierra and continues as an option for the base-model trucks. If you want a two-door Silverado or Sierra in a fancier trim level, you’re out of luck—unless you move to the Middle East, where you can buy a two-door with a standard bed in the Trail Boss or RST trims. No pricing information is available yet for these old-school pickup-truck configurations, but expect the regular-cab, standard-bed models to cost slightly less than the equivalent long-bed versions.
