Fortnite: What is a Rift?
Rift is nothing but like a mini-portal in Fortnite. They are blue in color and spawn at several locations across the entire map. When you get into a rift, you will get to the sky and jump from there landing on the same location from where you used the rift.
Rifts can be very useful to escape if a bunch of opponents has cornered you. It can also be used to get a high view of nearby foes in the game or cover a distance using gliding. When you or someone else uses a rift in Fortnite, a unique sound is made. This makes everyone nearby aware that a player has gone to the sky and can view them from there.

Fortnite: How to Complete Drive Through a Rift Challenge?
Most of the rifts are placed at a few feet height from the ground. Also, the vehicles are usually placed far from rifts locations. These factors can make it difficult to complete the challenge. However, there are a couple of locations where you can easily find vehicles near rifts locations.
The first location is the northwest tip in the Doom’s Domain. You will find a truck here with the rifts located nearby. One of the rifts is in the straight direction of the truck at the edge of the cliff. Don’t worry about the height of the rift portal as the truck is tall enough to trigger the rift. The other rift is to the right of the truck on a hill.
The second location is at Stark Industries. You can easily find several cars here. Grab any one of them and head north on the road. You will find a rift alongside the road. Build a small ramp to get a small flight and enter the rift to see yourself flying in the sky.
Completing this challenge will get you 25,000 XP. You can also use the flying vehicle as a way to kill enemies by landing on them. However, you won’t get any bonus points for doing so.
Now you know what are rifts in Fortnite, what are their locations, and how to complete the drive a car or truck through a rift portal.
