What is the 2021 RAV4 Adventure trim?

If you are looking to get started in the world of off-road or just want a more capable and sportier looking RAV4, then the Adventure trim may be a wise choice. It slots in right above the XLE Premium trim and right below the TRD Off-Road trim which we will talk about more in a minute.

The Adventure trim adds several features including a unique split-bar grille, active grille shutters, an engine oil cooler, automatic transmission cooler, an upgraded 150-amp alternator, roof rails, unique badging, an orange-accented interior, and an optional two-tone exterior. Of course, you also get standard all-wheel drive with dynamic torque vectoring with downhill assist control too.

What elevates the RAV4 TRD Off-Road trim above the Adventure trim?

Most of the features on the Adventure trim carry over to the TRD Off-Road trim except for a few extras like the orange-accented interior for red. The TRD Off-Road takes the off-road aspect of its name a little more seriously. One place where that is evident is the tires. Instead of 19-inch wheels, the TRD Off-Road has 18-inch wheels to give itself more rubber, and for this trim, those tires are special Falken all-terrain tires.

Additionally, the TRD Off-Road trim adds a special TRD-tuned suspension with unique painted shocks. This trim also adds some specialized TRD branded elements including a cargo liner, all-weather floor mats, a stamped stainless steel front skid plate, and badging. The TRD Off-Road also comes with integrated LED fog lights with a black trim.
