The anticipated debut of the Rivian electric pickup trucks keeps getting more intriguing.
The manufacturer has announced the innovative vehicle will have a $5,000 option called the Camp Kitchen x Snow Peak package.
It’s three accessories in one – the Camp Kitchen, Snow Peak kitchen set and Rivian Gear Tunnel Shuttle. Add it all together and it’s a full mobile kitchen set that stores in the Tunnel Shuttle. It’s the pass-through storage compartment Rivian revealed a few years ago with the truck’s concept at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

The kitchen includes a 1,440-watt, two-burner induction cooktop and a collapsible four-gallon sink with a pressure differential pump. The kitchen set includes 30 pieces of titanium Snow Peak kitchenware, including pots, pans, kettle and a coffee grinder. The kitchen and kitchen set are both modular.
Rivian recently announced customers who made deposits will be offered test drives this month. Public deliveries of the truck will follow within a few weeks.
The all-wheel-drive truck is touted with a 0-60 miles per hour acceleration of 3.0 seconds. The RT1 has a towing capacity of 11,000 pounds. The starting MSRP is $67,500.
The Camp Kitchen x Snow Peak package is available as a $5,000 add-on in the R1T configurator. Rivian previously announced the Three-Person Tent + Cargo Crossbars package ($2,650).
