The Dynamic Force 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine produces 203 horsepower for great acceleration. Pairing it to the Direct Shift 8-speed automatic Transmission shifts the power smoothly and efficiently, all the way to highway speeds.
Three distinct drive modes let you tailor RAV4's driving dynamics to match your mood. SPORT Mode provides sharper acceleration, ECO Mode helps maximize fuel efficiency and NORMAL Mode blends fuel economy with performance.
Enjoy a smooth ride that delivers driving confidence. RAV4's multi-link rear suspension helps enhance handling and control by working with its natural body rigidity in order to keep traction steady.
RAV4's Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform refines the drive wherever you take it. A longer, wider stance makes the handling more responsive, while a stronger core gives you a ride that is smooth and confident. The platform also creates a naturally spacious interior with a better view of the road.
A retuned suspension with enhanced rebound control and red coil springs with revised spring rates means better ride quality for tackling gravel-covered roads. With 203 horsepower, an 8-speed transmission, Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD (TV-AWD) and Multi-terrain Select, it's no wonder why our TRD engineers jumped at the chance to redefine what TRD Off-Road stands for.
Available Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive (TV-AWD) helps enhance responsiveness and stability by sending up to 50 percent of the power to the rear and then further distributing more power to the wheel that needs it. To boost fuel efficiency, Rear Driveline Disconnect will stop sending power to the rear when it isn't necessary.
RAV4 features standard Multi-terrain Select on All-Wheel Drive (AWD) gas models. Choose between four modes (MUD & SAND, ROCK & DIRT, SNOW and NORMAL) for enhanced traction. When activated, the system is designed to sense slippage and regulate wheelspin by automatically adjusting the engine throttle, brakes and drive-force distribution—helping to maximize driving performance on different surfaces.
Don't sweat the small stuff. RAV4's ground clearance lets you easily handle off-road trails and pathways. The ride height also gives you a more confident view of what's around you.
Full of personality, RAV4 sits wider and has an extended wheelbase that gives it an aggressive stance, while flared fenders and sharp creases add to its tough exterior. Modern two-tone paint schemes are also offered with a Black or Ice Edge-colored roof.
Inspired by Toyota's off-road heritage, Adventure Grade's distinctive, rugged exterior features an aggressive grille, larger overfenders, unique Adventure roof rails and 19-in. 5-spoke alloy wheels. This tough look also echoes Toyota's off-road past with an available Ice Edge-colored roof. Inside, orange accents throughout the interior add the right amount of contrast to its sporty style.
RAV4 TRD Off-Road's subtle styling differences include dark-gray front and rear lower fascias, LED fog lights and numerous black-painted accents. Rugged overfenders also amp up its exterior look, along with matte-black 18-in. TRD alloy wheels wrapped in aggressive Falken WILDPEAK A/T Trail tires.
Good-looking from the ground up. RAV4's wheels are designed to complement every model's personality and style. From XLE's 17-in. 5-spoke silver alloy wheels to Limited's available 19-in. multi-spoke super chrome-finished alloy wheels, you'll look good wherever your trips take you.
Leave a lasting impression. Underneath the rear bumper, the dual chrome exhaust tips show off a powerful look when seen from behind. An available rear spoiler and modern LED taillights deliver a distinctive appearance and finish off the design.
Standard LED Headlights with smoked trim and LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) help you see what's ahead.
See and feel a new level of refinement that elevates the driving experience. An available panoramic glass roof opens up from an interior filled with premium materials and reveals the attention that goes into every detail.
Available interior ambient lighting provides the right mood for any drive.
Complementing Adventure Grade's rugged exterior are seats that feature a unique pattern with orange accents.
The sleek look of RAV4 TRD Off-Road's exterior continues inside. A black interior with red accents on the dash, doors and seats adds to its sporty appeal, while SofTex-trimmed front seats help give you the support you need when taking on off-road adventures.
Ready to impress, on- or off-road. Feel an elevated level of refinement every time you enter RAV4. Premium materials, like the available SofTex-trimmed seats and the comfort of an available 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat with memory function, put you in the center of it all.

Get a clear view with the flip of a switch. RAV4 introduced Toyota's first camera-based digital rearview mirror. The available feature uses a camera mounted up high inside the rear window for a wider field of vision—letting you see more of what's behind you. Underneath the rearview mirror, you'll also find the convenience of the HomeLink universal transceiver buttons, which give you access to your garage door and more.
Stay connected to fun. Plug your smartphone or mobile device into one of up to five USB ports to power up. You can also place your device on the available Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging pad found conveniently in the tray below the climate controls.
No need to reach into your pocket or purse with RAV4's available Smart Key System.

Power your gear wherever you go. All you have to do is access the rear cargo area and plug into RAV4's standard 12V/120W outlet to give you the charge you need to keep going. Adventure Grade and TRD Off-Road up the power with an additional 120V/100W power outlet in the rear cargo area.
RAV4's Road Sign Assist (RSA) is designed to help keep the road safe. Using a forward-facing intelligent camera, Road Sign Assist is designed to detect speed limit signs, stop signs, yield signs and Do Not Enter signs, and display them on the MID.
When the Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) is enabled and lane markers are detectable, Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) uses the lines on the road and/or preceding vehicles to help keep the vehicle centered while also displaying the vehicle's position on the MID screen. The system is designed to help reduce driver strain and increase convenience, and may benefit drivers most during traffic jams—but can be turned off using the MID.
RAV4's Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD) is designed to help keep the road safe by detecting a vehicle, pedestrian or bicyclist in certain situations. The latest system has enhanced low-light capabilities for pedestrian detection. By combining millimeter-wave radar with a camera capable of shape recognition, the system provides an audio/visual alert, warning you of a possible collision under certain circumstances. If you don't react, the system is designed for automatic braking support to help mitigate the potential for a collision.
Intended for highway use and similar to "constant speed" cruise control, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) lets you drive at a preset speed. DRCC uses vehicle-to-vehicle distance control, which is designed to adjust your speed, to help you maintain a preset distance from the vehicle ahead of you that is driving at a slower speed. DRCC uses a front-grille-mounted radar and an in-vehicle camera designed to detect vehicles and their distance. If a driver is traveling slower than you, or within your preset range, DRCC is designed to automatically slow your vehicle down without deactivating cruise control. If DRCC determines you need to slow down more, an audio and visual alert notifies you and brakes may be applied. When there's no longer a vehicle driving slower than your preset speed in front of you, DRCC will then accelerate to the preset speed and regular cruise control will resume.
Using Road Edge Detection or by detecting visible lane markings, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA) is designed to issue both an audible alert and visual warning on the MID screen if an inadvertent lane departure is detected at speeds above 32 mph. If the system determines that the driver is not taking corrective steering action, the Steering Assist function is designed to initiate and provide gentle corrective steering to help keep RAV4 in the lane.
RAV4's Automatic High Beams (AHB) feature is a safety system designed to help you see more clearly at night—without distracting other drivers. Designed to activate at speeds above 25 mph, AHB relies on an in-vehicle camera to help detect the headlights of oncoming vehicles and taillights of preceding vehicles, then automatically toggles between high and low beams accordingly to provide the appropriate amount of light. By using high beams more frequently, the system may allow for earlier detection of pedestrians and obstacles.
Available Front and Rear Parking Assist with Automated Braking (PA w/AB) audibly and visually warns you when it detects stationary objects or vehicles approaching from the rear. If the system determines there may be contact with a detected obstacle or vehicle, it will reduce engine power and/or apply the brakes.
The available Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) warns you when a vehicle in the next lane enters RAV4's blind spot on either side. When in Reverse, available Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) helps detect vehicles approaching from either side, visibly with side mirror indicators and audibly with a warning tone.
RAV4 comes standard with a driver and front passenger Advanced Airbag System, with driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags, driver knee airbag, front passenger seat-cushion airbag, in addition to front and rear side curtain airbags. Eight airbags total—all focused on your safety.
Smart tech helps keep you safe. This standard comprehensive suite of six advanced safety features is designed to help keep you out of harm's way. The system includes Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and Smart Stop Technology (SST).
Every new Toyota comes with ToyotaCare, a maintenance plan that covers normal factory scheduled service for 2 years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first and 24-hour Roadside Assistance for 2 years, unlimited miles.
