Toyota has been introducing off-road-optimized variants of its popular vehicles, and now it’s the RAV4’s turn. While rally driver Ryan Millen already proved the popular crossover is capable of tackling rough terrain, that wasn’t enough for engineers, so the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure takes off-road capability in the crossover segment to new heights.
They say there’s truth in a name, and that’s never been more accurate than in the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure, which was first revealed alongside the TRD Sport versions of the Tundra and Sequoia at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show.
The new Toyota RAV4 Adventure rolls out 18-inch black wheels with gleaming black headlamp bezels and fog lamp surround. Standard roof rails continue to uphold the crossover’s practicality while the unique Adventure badging shows other drivers exactly what they’re dealing with. Inside, drivers will enjoy a leather-wrapped shift knob, all-wheel floor mats, and a power outlet in the cargo area.
Like other Toyota RAV4 models, the Adventure features a four-cylinder engine that produces 176 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel drive comes standard, and all-wheel drive is an available option. A properly-equipped Toyota RAV4 Adventure can tow up to 3,500 pounds.
