Two decades is a long time in the automotive world, but that’s how long our local customers have enjoyed the dependable and flexible RAV4. In that time, this compact crossover hasn’t just become one of the most attractive examples of the segment it helped create, but continues to raise the bar. This year, the gasoline-powered versions get a unique new model between the XLE and SE trims—the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure!

The RAV4 Adventure combines features from the aforementioned trims, while incorporating exclusive badging, unique design cues, and all the necessary equipment required the name. Like the rest of the range, this model comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P) as well as the 176 horsepower engine with up to 28 mpg highway with all-wheel drive. But where other similar models only offer minor changes, the RAV4 Adventure truly raises the bar.

Yes, that can be taken literally! Where the standard RAV4 offers 6.1 inches of ground clearance, the RAV4 Adventure rides 6.5 inches off the ground. Front-wheel drive versions come with an Automatic Limited Slip differential for better performance, and those equipped with Toyota’s Dynamic Torque Control All-Wheel Drive will find no qualms about stability on road, or off. Along with 18-inch five-spoke black alloy wheels with meaty, trail-ready tires, the RAV4 Adventure has the grip and ground clearance to tackle off-road and inclement weather situations with confidence.

But more than capability awaits in this new RAV4 model—exclusivity does, too! The tailgate and floor mats both feature “RAV4 Adventure” badging, while interior appointments are filled out by carbon fiber paneling and a leather-wrapped gear selector. A heated steering wheel and seats are available through the Adventure-exclusive “Cold Weather” package for those who enjoy taking trips up to Big Bear in the winter season.

While the Adventure model isn’t available RAV4 Hybrid guise, the blend of form, function, and capability make this model a great prospect for outdoor enthusiasts! Standard roof rails, and 73.4 cubic feet of maximum cargo volume don’t hurt either.
