A new, meaner look for the most adventurous Toyota fans out thereby Alina Moore, on
If you look at sales figures for the Toyota RAV4 in both Europe and the U.S. you will see that it is a very successful model. Back in 2020 the RAV4 was the best sold SUV in the States for the fourth year in a row, while in Europe it is in the top 3 best sold Toyota models.
So, it was to be expected to see that Toyota is doing its best to further improve the model and come with more ways to attract more customers. Its latest attempt is called "RAV4 Adventure" and, according to Toyota, it "reinforces the model’s “go anywhere” spirit with stand-out rugged styling that’s ready for life in the great outdoors."
2022 Toyota RAV4 Adventure
What makes the 2022 Toyota RAV4 Adventure special?
The model is based on the 2022 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, meaning it will offer all the updates coming with the 2022 model year. However, it also includes an all-black grille with the Toyota logo placed in the center of the two horizontal bars that cross the center of the unit. The fog lights now get black surrounds and a silver-finished under-run placed both on the front and the rear give the car a more off-roading stance.
The 2022 RAV4 Adventure will be offered with a unique bi-tone paintwork that will combine an Urban Khaki body finish with a Dynamic grey paint for the roof, front pillars and rear spoiler.
It will also ride on 19-inch alloy wheels with a matt grey finish to match the rest of the body.
For the interior Toyota is offering a combination of black synthetic leather with deeply quilted back cushion sections and contrasting orange contrast stitching. Customers will also get new LED lighting, power adjustment for the front passenger seat, illuminated window control switches and new, USB-C ports.
As we previously mentioned, the RAV4 Adventure is based on the hybrid model. This means it combines a 2.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine with electrical motors for a total output of 222 horsepower.
The model is also offered with AWD-i drive and offers a towing capacity of 1,650 kg (or about 3,600 pounds).
The new RAV4 Adventure will be available for deliveries in the first quarter of 2022. Prices will be announced closer to market launch.
