edit: oops, nevermind, looks like a sports model, not limited. carry on.

There is officially a new star on FOX's 24....... 2006 Classic Silver Metallic RAV4 Sport 4x2 4-cylinder!

If you ever wondered how it would feel to drive around with your tailgate open while getting shot at, you should have watched tonight's episode.

PS I also noticed that the "pedestrian friendly crumple zones" did not work too well when the RAV ran over that terrorist! Hahahah...

Hey... thanks for the heads-up! :D For me in Hawaii, it will start in half an hour; will definitely look out for it. Which characters drive the RAV4? Usually Jack Bauer and the CTU field agents usually drive big black American SUVs. :)

p.s. Check out my "24" thread in the Off-Topic section. :D

Great episode & a nice surprise to see the new Rav....even if they
did have to shoot it up a little.
Hey maybe they'd offer to sell it at a discount! Eh...what's a few
bullet holes here and there. :roll:

It was either a limited or a sport, it had an emblem on the doors which I couldn't read, the base doesn't. Didn't notice if it had fender flares. I thought it had 6 spoke wheels which makes it a limited. I was just excited to see it on one of my favorite shows!! :D

I noticed right away... Toyota is PIMPING 24 this season hard!

Dunno if anyone saw the special prequal in Season 4 disc set, but it was Jack toolin around town in an Avalon, and some BMW people are high speed chasing him... of course the Avalon is corning like nothing (smooth and silk) meanwhile the BMW is sliding all over the place hitting dumpsters etc..

It was comical, more like a BMW Film (cept reverse) and had no real story whatsoever, so dont even know why they did it.

That, and Jack was driving a Tacoma in the first ep this season (while working at the Oil Rigs etc). And then there was the GS 350 after he took the car of that older guy that rigged the detonators (or whatever) and THEN Cloe was driving a Prius in that prequal thing too....

Quickdtoo,

That RAV4 was a Sport model. If you get a chance to see the episode again, you'll notice the 5 spoke sport wheels and flares while it is parked by the barn. The car also has black interior, shown while Wayne was driving. No V6 label in front, and no 4wd badge in back. :wink:

I hope the RAV gets more screen time next week!

for sure it was not a Base because the mirrors were silver to match the car instead of black..

Anyone know if Toyota is doing product placement for this TV series? That would be cool. 8) I foresee an upcoming episode with an FJ Cruiser. That vehicle definitely has "star" written all over it. :lol:

Congrats to you 4.3 owners, having your vehicle represented in 24! :p

Yes, actually, they are! 8)

Jalopnik: Twenty, Twenty, Twenty-Four Hours to Go: I Wanna Drive a Toyota

December 5, 2005

Fox has decided to broaden the Ford-centric product-placement universe of 24 and toss some Toyota in the mix. In the fifth-season “bridge” mini-movie that comes with the DVD set of season four, Kiefer Sutherland will run from or be running down baddies in an Avalon. Which we guess is sort of like a modern-day Steve McGarrett-mobile, but not nearly as badass as the top Five-Oh cop’s Merc. Jeez…remember when Mercuries could be considered certifiably appropriate rides for badasses on either side of the law? Wha’ happen?


Toyota Vehicles to Be Integrated into Fox’s ‘24’ [AdAge]



LOS ANGELES (AdAge.com) -- The Fox network’s conspiracy thriller “24,” which has been closely identified with Ford Motor Co. vehicles, will get its first Toyota brand integrations in the upcoming fifth season of the show.

Just watched this episode at lunch (was on vacation last week). Looked like the RAV got a lot of screen time. I'll see if I can get some screen captures later...

Well, the good news is that the RAV has survived another episode and should still be in the next! Bad news is the bad guy is the one driving it around. :p In this week's episode I also spotted an Avalon, a Land Cruiser and a new Camry.

Makes me wonder if Ford lost their promotional product placement, because the only other prominently displayed vehicles were cop cars (Crown Vics, I believe) and a pair of Dodge Durangos.

I wish the Limited came with flares.....Probably a Sport, unless 24 is filmed in Canada.
