The TRD Off Road version of the Toyota RAV4 will be arriving at dealership in the fall of 2019 as a 2020 model.
The RAV4 TRD Off-Road is available in a two-tone paintjob consisting of a Magnetic Grey Metallic body with Ice Edge roof, accented by dark grey front and rear lower fascias.
The Tacoma's 159 hp 2.7-liter four-cylinder and 265 hp 3.5-liter V6 engines carryover with 6-speed automatic transmissions, while a 6-speed manual can be had with the V6. The RAV4 Off-Road will offer all of the same standard driver-assistance features that are on lesser models when it goes on sale, which include automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, automatic high-beams, and traffic-sign recognition. The springs and shocks have also been tuned. Toyota has also updated the vehicle's bump stops.
We have not driven any version of the 2020 Tacoma, but we're hoping that the revised suspension tuning in the TRD Pro makes for a softer ride.
Lighter and "more rigid" flow-formed 18×7-inch matte black TRD alloy wheels - wrapped in Falken Wildpeak A/T Trail rubber - are also included. Running boards in cast aluminum and a roof rack are also on the table.
The Sequoia TRD Pro has a seven-passenger seating layout, with middle-row captain's chairs and a three-place third-row bench. As for the V6, it is shared among a wide variety of Toyota and Lexus products. It's hooked up to an eight-speed automatic, and a torque vectoring all-wheel drive setup capable of shifting up to 50 per cent of the engine's torque to the rear wheels. All of the seats will be dressed in leather, adorned with red contrast stitching.
The look gets beefed up by way of a big ol' Toyota grille in black, which is standard on every TRD Pro model. Our 1,800 North American dealerships (nearly 1,500 in the U.S.) sold 2.8 million cars and trucks (2.4 million in the U.S.) in 2018 - and about 87 percent of all Toyota vehicles sold over the past 16 years are still on the road today.
