They seem to like torque vectoring which a lot on here say is a waste of time!! Certainly, they are not keen on interior and make the point others now equal the performance which was probably not true when the original Turbo PP came out. However, they give it 4.5 out of 5 probably because cars like BMW X4M do not ride or handle anything like half as well.
I’ve never felt the need for it on the road and I driver ours hard
"We were enjoying the Rivian plenty through twists and turns when we engaged in an experiment of sorts: We activated Sport mode, pushed hard enough into a sharp bend to provoke a little understeer, and then nailed the throttle. We felt the R1T's torque-vectoring superpowers at work: The outside-rear motor powered up and brought the R1T's nose around, and we blasted out of the turn like the Millennium Falcon—and this with four occupants in the cab, several hundred pounds of gear in the bed, and all-terrain tires. It's a sensation we've experienced in only a handful of cars, and never in a heavily laden pickup truck."
