2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure Starts at $27,700

Body Accents, Slight Suspension Lift Help Set Trim Package Apart from Lesser RAVs

Sep 18, 2017
The Toyota RAV4 Adventure, which is a new trim level for 2018, will start at $27,700 for the front-wheel-drive model or $28,400 for the all-wheel-driver, plus $995 for destination and handling.
The Adventure FWD represents a $2,200 increase in price compared to the next-rung-down XLE, while the Adventure AWD is $1,500 more than the XLE AWD. For the extra cash, Toyota will give shoppers a bit more style, starting with black-accented headlamps and foglamps, larger wheels and tires, and unique lower body styling consisting of rocker panel guards, larger fender flares, and off-road–themed front and rear valences.

Adding substance to the mix are standard roof rails (they’re optional on the XLE), four-season floor and cargo mats, a power outlet in the cargo area, and a standard towing-prep package with an uprated radiator, plus engine oil and transmission fluid coolers.
As on non-Adventure RAV4s, the front-driver gets an automatic limited-slip differential, while the AWD model has a selectable center differential lock for improved traction. A slight 0.4-inch increase in ground clearance adds just that much more security off-road, though it’s a still-scant 6.5 inches, so don’t go tackling any tank traps.

In spite of the added equipment, fuel economy remains constant at 23 city/30 highway/26 mpg for the FWD and 22/28/25 for the AWD. For folks with off-road aspirations, Toyota’s larger would be a much better proposition, but RAV4 customers who want just a bit more stance will think the Adventure is perfect.
