Rivian is further expanding its electric SUV lineup with the introduction of the 2026 Rivian R3X, unveiled alongside its siblings, the R2 and R3, during a recent launch event. Positioned as a more compact and performance-focused option, the R3X comes with some promising features that hint at an exhilarating driving experience.

One of the standout features of the R3X is its tri-motor setup, promising impressive performance capabilities. While specific details remain scarce, Rivian’s reputation for delivering powerful electric vehicles suggests that the R3X will likely exceed expectations. Given the R2’s ability to travel 300 miles on a single charge and accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in under three seconds, it’s reasonable to anticipate even greater speed and agility from the R3X.

Visually, the R3X exudes a rugged charm, enhanced by larger wheels and tires, a subtle increase in ride height, and additional cladding for protection against the elements. Vibrant orange accents adorn various exterior elements, adding a touch of personality to the SUV’s design.

Inside, the R3X offers a blend of comfort and durability, with two-tone black-and-beige seats featuring orange inserts and aluminum accents. Rivian’s CEO, RJ Scaringe, describes the interior as “rugged playful,” emphasizing both its rugged aesthetic and playful design elements. The use of eco-friendly materials such as cork and anodized metal further underscores Rivian’s commitment to sustainability.

While specific details about the Rivian R3X are still limited, enthusiasts can expect more information about the entire lineup of Rivian’s new SUVs—including the R2, R3, and R3X—in the near future. As anticipation builds, it’s clear that Rivian is poised to continue pushing the boundaries of electric vehicle innovation.
