Without a doubt, one of the most popular vehicles on the Toyota lineup in recent years has been the RAV4. In fact, in the 2019 calendar year from January all the way through the end of September, the RAV4 isn’t just the best-selling Toyota model, it’s the fourth best-selling vehicle overall, surpassed only by the big three pickup trucks that top the charts year after year (Chevy Silverado, RAM Pickup, Ford F-Series). To put things in perspective, the Toyota Camry – which was the brand’s best-selling model for many, many years – sold 256,456 vehicles during that time frame while the RAV4 sold 324,622. Now, the 2020 Toyota RAV4 is available right here at Arlington Toyota in Palatine IL.
After the RAV4 model’s total overhaul for the 2019 model year, very few changes were necessary for the new model year. There were some multimedia enhancements across the board, and an expanded weather package was brought to the XLE trim level, but beyond that the only major change was the addition of the first-ever RAV4 TRD Off-Road trim level. Finally, the popular compact crossover joins the ranks of Toyota Racing Development utility vehicles.
You can read about the RAV4 TRD Off-Road elsewhere on our website, so we figured we’d just highlight a few of the most exciting specs & features found in other RAV4 trim levels. For instance, the TRD isn’t the only model offering impressive performance. The RAV4 comes standard with a Dynamic Force 2.5L 4-cylinder engine capable of generating 203 horsepower along with a Direct Shift 8-speed automatic transmission that makes sure all of your shifting is as smooth as possible.
The RAV4 is packed with safety technologies and entertainment features to make sure that each and every time you hit the road you feel comfortable and enjoy your time. There are even plenty of versatile features that make sure you can pack as much cargo or as many passengers as you can fit. If you’re interested in a RAV4 of your own, be sure to reach out to us here at Arlington Toyota.
