What To Expect

With the Rivian R1S set to arrive for its third model year, the all-electric SUV is expected to arrive as a carryover model without any major changes. Here’s what we know about the upcoming 2025 Rivian R1S.

As a carryover model, the 2025 Rivian R1S SUV’s exterior design isn’t expected to change for the upcoming model year. The R1S is expected to continue to have a modern, but rugged design with boxy lines. The smooth front end of the current R1S features dramatic styling with round headlights and an expansive light bar that spans the full width of the front end. At the back, the R1S has thin horizontal taillights that are connected by a bar and blacked-out D-pillars.

The interior design of the 2025 Rivian R1S should remain close to the current model that’s on sale. The current R1S features a streamlined design with high-end materials. The sculpted dashboard features two large screens, minimal controls, and few angular edges to have a modern look. Thanks to its boxy design and expansive windows, the R1S has an airy cabin. The R1S comes with seating for up to seven people across three rows as standard.

When it comes to tech features, the 2025 Rivian R1S is expected to come with the current SUV’s 16-inch touchscreen and 12-inch digital instrument cluster. Other standard features will include Amazon Alexa, navigation, a Wi-Fi hotspot, a wireless charging pad, a 22-speaker Meridian audio system, Bluetooth, and an HD Radio. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay aren’t available on the current R1S and we don’t think Rivian will add smartphone compatibility for the 2025 model year.

2025 Rivian R1S Release Date
