        Rivian’s R1T electric pickup seems to be coming along well. The electric-vehicle startup shared a video today of the truck blasting around corners in the desert and even pulling off some rock crawling.

        The camouflaged Rivian truck was taken to the Arizona desert for off-road testing last weekend. The result is a lot of slow-motion shots of dirt being kicked into the air. Sadly the video does not show off the vehicle’s ability to pull off a tank turn.

          The Bronco is back, finally, and with it is its crossover-based cousin the Bronco Sport. It comes in four of the same guises as the bigger Bronco—base, Big Bend, Outer Banks, and Badlands—and it also gets a limited-run First Edition.

But the smaller and cuter Bronco Sport is, so a few Car and Driver staffers headed over to Ford’s site and built their dream Ford Bronco Sport.
