Toyota is seeking to attract the attention of young active families with a new 2018 RAV4 Adventure model, which debuted at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show.
Toyota Rav4 2018 Design
Despite its name, the RAV4 Adventure trim level will be offered on both front and four-wheel drive versions. They will all have a slightly raised suspension, however, which gives them some extra ground clearance.
They will also watch the part with larger rockets on their 18-inch alloy wheels, special coating of the lower body, and black keys to their head and fog lights. Changes continue inside with special trim panels, leather around the change button, an outlet in the cargo area, and rubber floor mats. Toyota plans to offer the RAV4 adventure in a choice of black, gray, silver, white, red and exterior colors.

Visually defining the adventure apart from other RAV4s are the 18-inch black aluminum wheels, larger wing flares, lower body guards and special badges. For a more aggressive look, black headlight glasses, fog surrounds the light and luggage racks are also included.
The cabin is dressed with unique trim pieces, adventure door sills, all-weather floor mats and cargo and a leather-wrapped shift knob. For an additional power source when you are out in the middle of camping nowhere, a 120 volt outlet cargo area is standard.
Toyota Rav4 2018 Engine
A 2.5-liter I-4 rated at 176 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque is the basic engine in the Toyota RAV4 2018 and is coupled exclusively to a six-speed automatic transmission. The RAV4 hybrid takes the 2.5-liter I-4 and torque to three electric motors for a total power of 194 hp and exchanges the six-speed automatic transmission in favor of a CVT. EPA fuel economy ratings for RAV4 2018 have not been published, but the 2017 model was rated at 23/30 mpg city / highway for the LE and the XLE before, or 23/29 for the classes SE and Limited. Opting for all-wheel-drive reduces these figures to 22/28 mpg. The RAV4 hybrid is the most fuel efficient at 34/30 mpg despite having the most power and all-wheel drive.
