TPMS Now Included in the Rivian R1T with Upcoming OTA Update
Rivian has confirmed that the R1T does indeed have tire pressure sensors. This is a feature that many cars today, even cheaper models, already have available. The hardware for this feature was included in the vehicle from day one and it will be added via an Over-the-Air (OTA) update at a later date.
Having a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is essential to ensure your tires are properly inflated and safe to drive on. It can alert you when there is low air pressure in any of your tires, so you know which ones need to be topped off. Additionally, having individual tire pressure readouts allows you to check each tire’s exact pressure level without having to manually check them all.
The Rivian R1T also includes an air compressor and attachments in the bed of the truck, allowing you to top up the air in your tires quickly and easily. This makes it easy to maintain proper tire pressures no matter where you are or what season it is.
Overall, the addition of tire pressure sensors in the Rivian R1T is a welcome feature that adds safety and convenience for drivers. With its OTA update, it should be available soon and make driving the R1T even more enjoyable.
However, it is surprising that Rivian did not include this feature from the start. It seems like a no-brainer to have tire pressure sensors in any vehicle, especially one as advanced and expensive as the R1T.
It’s possible that Rivian was waiting for its OTA update system to be ready before adding TPMS into the mix. This would make sense since they could then roll out all of their updates at once instead of having multiple releases over time.
Still, it’s strange that such an important safety feature wasn’t included right away when other cars already had them installed from day one. Perhaps there were some technical issues or cost concerns preventing them from doing so initially?
Whatever the reason may be, we are glad to see Rivian finally add tire pressure sensors into their vehicles with an upcoming OTA update!
Does the Rivian R1T have a tire pressure display?
Yes, the Rivian R1T has a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that transmits the pressure values for each of the front and rear tires to the in-vehicle displays. The software to display this information is expected to be released via an over-the-air update.
What other features are available on the Rivian R1T?
The Rivian R1T includes an air compressor and attachments, as well as a digital read-out in the bed. It also has a 360 degree overhead view camera, which can be accessed through the car's mobile app.
Is it important to check tire pressure regularly?
Yes, it is important to check tire pressure regularly, especially with electric vehicles that may not have a spare tire. Checking tire pressure before driving can help ensure safety and optimal performance. Low tire pressure can cause a decrease in fuel efficiency, as well as increased wear and tear on the tires.
What happens if I don't check my tire pressure?
If you don't check your tire pressure regularly, it can lead to decreased performance, increased wear and tear on the tires, and even potential safety risks. It is important to ensure that your tires are properly inflated for optimal performance and safety.
