Toyota is upping the ante on one of its most popular vehicles, the RAV4 compact crossover. Not only will the original model get some updates for the new model year but an entirely new adventure-ready trim level is entering the lineup. Debuting at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure revealed a RAV4 model that was capable of going farther off the beaten path than previous models. We break down the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure release date and special features below.
2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure release date and special features
Release Date at Ackerman Toyota
While we don’t have an exact date the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure will hit the Ackerman Toyota lot, we do have a general idea. Along with the RAV4LE, XLE, SE, Limited, and Platinum trims, the Adventure trim on the 2018 RAV4 is slated to head to dealerships in September of 2017.
Geared towards weekend warriors who like to go for outdoor adventures on the weekend, the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure includes some specialty features that help to make it a little more rough and tough to handle the great outdoors.
Key features included in the exterior on the 2018 RAV4 Adventure include large fender flares, lower body guards, 18-inch Alloy wheels, a black roof rack, black headlight bezels, and a black fog lamp surround. On the interior drivers can look forward to specialty Toyota RAV4 Adventure badges, a leather wrapped shift knob, 120-Volt/100-Watt power outlets, door sill protectors, and all-weather floor mats.
The 2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure will also see some unique changes under the hood. Coming standard with front-wheel drive and a Limited-Slip Differential, the 2018 RAV4 Adventure will also have an available Toyota Dynamic Torque Control All-Wheel Drive for confident driving in slippery conditions. An upgraded suspension will provide the 2018 Adventure trim with a higher ride height than traditional RAV4 models allowing it to plow over uneven terrain.
Keep a close eye on the Ackerman Toyota inventory in September so you don’t miss the debut of the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure in St. Louis, MO.
