Toyota has just revealed a more off-road focused version of the RAV4, called the RAV4 TRD Off-Road.
Unveiled at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, the new Toyota RAV4 TRD is tuned by the Toyota Racing Development (TRD) department of the company. It is showcased as a more confident and adventure capable SUV with rugged looks.
The exterior is a combination of sophisticated modern design and boldness; the massive front grill and front-rear combo of skid plates provide the rough and tough, rugged appearance. The exclusive TRD package also consists of 18-inch lightweight alloy wheels. The refined interior is sheer pleasure with lots of practical equipments and space. The TRD logo is embroidered on the headrests with red trim and stitching.
The Toyota RAV4 TRD comes with an off-road Multi Link Rear Suspension. It has a 2.5-litre petrol engine that makes 206 BHP and can tow up to 1580 kgs behind it. The AWD improves responsiveness and the Multi Terrain Select system allows a simple user interface for better traction on all kinds of paths, be it Mud and Sand, Rock and Dirt, and Snow.
The ground clearance of 218 mm is designed to absorb uneven conditions and gravel road pothole strikes. Hill Start Assist, Trailer Sway Control, and Downhill Assist are standard. It comes loaded with safety features such as Lane Tracing Assist, Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Monitor and up to eight airbags.
The 2019 Toyota RAV4 TRD is going to be a successful vehicle in terms of super comfort at high-speed dirt road touring.
