What's New for the 2018 Toyota RAV4?

The Toyota RAV4 compact crossover has been one of the best-selling vehicles in the United States since its release. In 2018, Toyota has made some impressive changes to the vehicle. With an array of available trim packages, Toyota has added the Adventure trim package that brings black hood graphics, 18-inch wheels, a towing package with trailer sway control and dynamic torque control all-wheel drive that can tow up to 3,500 pounds.

Toyota has also added a cold weather package that can be added to the Adventure and SE trim packages. This package gives owners the luxuries of heated front seats, heated steering wheel and windshield wiper de-icers to help beat the cold weather territory.
