Rav4 adventure.

First I've heard of this. Hopefully not a repost. Small lift, 3500lbs towing with awd, blacked out headlight trim, black rims. Not modified, added to the lineup for 2018.

Looks nice, but would look nicer with a more powerful powertrain! I am not a fan of this trend of adding trim or colour packages giving the impression that performance was improved.

That better be a mega-cooler. We know that the V6 cooler in the 4.3 was barely doing it's job under heavy load.

Says the guy with the "sport edition" rav4. Just kidding.

Yeah when I saw it was a new model to the line up and not a one off dealer package, and had 3500lb towing I was all excited that it was a new powertrain, but nope. Was disappointed to see the same engine and specs.

But, for people who need the tow rating or just like the look(I do), it'll be another great option.

2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure is Ready for Fun » AutoGuide.com News

What really excites me is the

elevated ride height and a standard trailer-prep package, which includes an upgraded radiator as well as engine-oil and transmission-fluid coolers.
THIS is what a RAV4 is supposed to be!

Wish the article above included some specs. Such as ground clearance and towing capability. Nodnerb, where did you read the 3,500 pound capacity? Maybe that is for the Canadian version?

Thank you. I didn't see your link. Might have mistaken it for part of your signature. If what shows up on the showroom floors, and the gasoline consumption is close to the current offerings, I just might trade in my '15 Limited for one of these puppies.
