Toyota has estimated the trail-friendly variation of the hot-selling RAV4 it disclosed at the 2019 Chicago automobile expo. The more daring TRD Off-Road trim will join the range for the 2020 model year.
The price begins at $36,300 after an obligatory $1,120 destination charge gets figured into the primary concern, as indicated by CarsDirect. That figure makes the TRD Off-Road one of the most costly variations of the 2020 RAV4. While full valuing for the 2020 model year hasn't been revealed at this point, the entry-level 2019 LE model beginnings at $26,770, while the range-topping Limited conveys a base cost of $36,170 with a four-cylinder engine or $36,970 with a hybrid powertrain. To include context, the greater Highlander begins at $32,950, and goes up to a tough 4Runner will set purchasers back, at any rate, $37,140. Note the previously mentioned figures come together with the $1,120 destination charge.
Drivers who spend 4Runner cash on a RAV4 are compensated by a retuned, trim-specific suspension that enables them to go on dirt roads at generally high speeds without breaking something costly. Its 18-inch alloys wrapped by off-road tires come standard, too, yet Toyota noticed the TRD Off-Road offers the equivalent 8.6-inch ground leeway as the less expensive Adventure trim.
There are no mechanical changes to report. The TRD Off-Road gets a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that sends 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque to the four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. Torque vectoring shuffles the engine's output between the left and right wheels to keep the RAV4 moving in low-footing conditions, however, don't hope to discover a transfer case, skid plates, or anything hardcore in case you take a look under it.
The 2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road will start moving into sale plots in the coming weeks.
