Every 2022 Rivian R1T bed size measures 4-feet-6-inches. If that’s not enough room for you, Rivian has also included storage space in the form of a “frunk”, and a storage tunnel between the bed and the passenger compartment. 
Newly introduced for 2022, the flagship model of the California-based start-up Rivian is an electric truck with four electric motors, each powering its own wheel to get 835 horsepower combined. 
As one of the first of its kind and a trailblazer in the market, the Rivian sets the standard with a 3.3-second 0-to-60 start time, leather and wood interior touches, and over 22 cubic feet of cargo capacity. 
But how is that cargo capacity distributed, and just how long is the bed of the 2022 Rivian R1T?

2022 Rivian truck bed dimensions

The 2022 Rivian keeps its configurations simple. The only style of cab available is the four-door crew cab, and each truck bed measures 4 feet and 6 inches.
Here’s a further breakdown of the 2022 Rivian truck bed: 
  • Cargo bed width at the floor: 51.1 inches
  • Cargo bed width between wheel housings: 50.2 inches
  • Bed height: 18.3 inches
  • Total cargo volume: 22.6 cubic feet
Those 22.6 cubic feet of cargo volume come from the 11.6-cubic-foot storage tunnel behind the passenger compartment and the 11.0-cubic-foot front trunk combined. Also known as the “frunk”, it is power operated and can be opened via the infotainment screen or remote key. 
The payload capacity maxes out at 1,760 pounds, making it competitively strong among its contemporaries.
When it comes to comparison shopping, Rivian’s current competition is limited. Its projected top competitor, the Tesla Cybertruck, isn’t on the market quite yet, but it is reported to have a 6-foot-5-inch bed. 

2022 Rivian cargo bed specs

On top of those basic specs, the Rivian offers innovative add-ons when it comes to both storage space and technology. The “frunk”, located under the front hood, is a unique touch, as is the lockable in-bed storage compartment. For more storage, there is a waterproof spare tire well with a volume of 7.0-cubic-feet. 
For the bed itself, there is a power-retractable bed cover which makes protecting your cargo easier than ever. The Gear Guard system offers a cut-resistant cable that can lock your things into place in the bed. The finishing touch is the integrated air compressor, perfect for quickly inflating or deflating tires.
