I think the only reason I'm not buying is the lack of Android Auto, otherwise I would order a fully loaded hybrid :S

Saw one of these on my way home from work yesterday. Looks really good! Certainly an improvement over the current model. I think the one I saw was the adventure model because it had the dual tone coloring

At least they finally added Carplay. But yes, kinda silly in 2019 not to support Carplay AND Android Auto if your one of the biggest car manufacturers in the world.

The new Toyota lineup is quite impressive. Ive rented the Camry couple times and quite good. I expect a 2 door "Rav4" made more aggressive looking to become the next FJ Cruiser. Wish they would get the 4Runner and Tundra up to snuff.

Historically, buyers of RAV4 have been women with iPhones. No need for Android.

2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road is the Most Rugged RAV4 Yet

The 2020 Toyota RAV4 Off-Road has made its debut in Chicago this week, offering customers a more rugged and capable version of the extremely popular compact crossover.

It may not be one of Toyota’s tough-looking and ultra capable TRD Pro models, but the RAV4 TRD Off-Road still gets some rather robust off-road equipment. TRD (that’s Toyota Racing Development) has fiddled with the suspension using lessons learned from its RAV4 rally racer, installing new red coil springs and different shocks, along with new suspension bump stops and lightweight 18-inch TRD black alloy wheels wrapped in Falken Wildpeak off-road tires.

Torque vectoring all-wheel drive comes standard and can send up to 50 percent of the RAV4’s power to the rear wheels at any given time. A standard ‘Multi-Terrain Select’ system allows the driver to choose from a number of driving modes and adjusts the traction settings and other parameters for the all-wheel drive system and transmission. Dedicated off-road modes in the Multi-Terrain Select system include Mud & Sand mode, Rock & Dirt mode and Snow mode.

Additionally, all RAV4 TRD Off-Road models will come equipped with Hill Start Assist Control, Trailer Sway Control and Downhill Assist Control. The crossover has a tow capacity of 3,500 lbs, which is perfect for “personal watercraft, dirt bikes or a small enclosed trailer,” Toyota says.

Just like the standard 2020 Toyota RAV4, the RAV4 TRD Off Road is powered by Toyota’s 2.5-liter Dynamic Force four-cylinder engine, which is rated at 203 hp and 183 lb-ft of torque. The automaker’s Direct Shift eight-speed automatic is the only available transmission.

Stay tuned for details on pricing and availability for the 2020 Toyta RAV4 TRD Off-Road, which are expected to be announced at a later date.

Android Auto will be across the line starting with 2020 models. Whether the Rav will pick is up or not is TBD, but it seems that if the vehicle has CarPlay, it will have AA.

I mean, yeah it's a more off-road capable RAV-4, but not actually all that off-road capable...

I guess with a TRD pkg its pretty much the next FJ family cruiser. Martina Navratilova would drive this but think I will wait for the Paul Hogan version

The wife’s 2010 Outback is approaching 170,000 miles and is burning quite a bit of oil these days. We always thought we’d downsize and get the Forester next, but the sub-30 MPG has us reconsidering. On a whim I decided to research the Forester’s competition and came across the hybrid version of the new RAV4, and I gotta say, we both really like it. Think we’ve found our next family road trip car.
