RAV4 features standard Multi-Terrain Select (MTS) 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.
A retuned suspension with enhanced rebound control and red coil springs with revised spring rates mean better ride quality, while an all-new skid plate helps protect the underside when tackling gravel-covered roads. With 203 horsepower, an 8-speed transmission, Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD (TV-AWD) and Multi-Terrain Select (MTS), it's no wonder 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.
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.
Full of personality, RAV4's sporty design continues to stand out from the crowd. Muscular fenders on all four corners accentuate its ready-for-anything attitude, while available two-tone exterior paint color schemes help you express your own unique 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.
Leave a lasting impression. Underneath the rear bumper, the dual chrome-tipped exhaust shows 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.
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.
