Toyota preps 2018 RAV4 for a go-anywhere attitude with new Adventure grade

Article by Christian A., on February 13, 2017

Getting ready for a new adventure with a RAV4 has now been made more exciting. This is thanks to Toyota’s decision to offer an Adventure grade for the 2018 model of its RAV4 compact SUV.

The Japanese carmaker just recently unveiled the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure, which should allow young families with an adventurous nature to go on an escapade. As its name indicates, the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure is provided with a number of features and elements that allow the compact SUV to be as rough as possible. Furthermore, these added features and elements should enable the new RAV4 Adventure to look sportier and more stylish than usual.

If you are interested in this new grade for the 2018 Toyota RAV4, you can choose between two available versions, although both will feature the same upgrades thanks to the package. Customers may still avail of the front-wheel drive version of the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure, which comes with an Automatic Limited-Slip Differential. But if you need traction and grip on all four corners, you may want to avail of the all-wheel-drive variant of the RAV4 Adventure, which is fitted with Dynamic Torque Control.

Both the front-wheel drive and the all-wheel drive versions are provided –as standard – with Tow Prep Package that includes an upgraded radiator and supplemental engine oil and transmission fluid coolers. Both versions of the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure feature a suspension system that allow them to have higher ground clearance than their typical siblings.

In addition, the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure is fitted with, as standard, the Toyota Safety Sense (TSS-P), Trailer Sway Control (TSC) and Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC) – making this compact SUV better prepared for the challenges ahead.

Of course, this new grade wouldn’t be complete without any styling modifications inside and out. For instance, the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure features large overfender flares, lower body guards and black Adventure badging. Riding on 18-inch five-spoke black alloy wheels wrapped in 235/55R18 tires, the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure is specified with black headlight bezels as well as black fog lamp surround and roof racks. Toyota will be making the new the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure available in exterior finishes: Black, Magnetic Gray Metallic, Ruby Flare Pearl, Silver Sky Metallic and Super White.

Meanwhile, the interior of the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure will receive a number of modifications like its distinct interior trim panels and all-weather mats floor and cargo mats with Adventure logo. This compact SUV also features leather-wrapped shift knob and Adventure door sill protectors. Customers could also find a power outlet – with 120V/100W power rating -- in the cargo area of the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure.
