The fifth-generation Toyota Rav4 TRD off-roader has made its debut at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. It connects to an all-wheel-drive system that can send up to 50 per cent of power to the rear wheels and features torque vectoring control to mitigate slip.
The new Sequoia TRD Pro offers plenty of storage inside and out for 2020 with room for seven passengers. The RAV4's hybrid powertrain will not be offered on the TRD Off-Road, which instead comes standard with the 203-hp 2.5-liter inline-four and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Pricing has not been announced, but all Tacomas come standard with the Toyota Safety Sense suite of active driver aids, which includes automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist and adaptive cruise control. The package includes red coil springs that are better focused for off-road duties, while the twin-tube shocks are revalved and carry new springs to improve rebound control. The Tacoma TRD Off-Road also gets those and available Multi-Terrain Monitor (MTM) and LED headlights. With more than 30 configurations in six model grades available, there's a Tacoma for every need: work-ready SR; high-style, high-value SR5; athletic TRD Sport; adventurous TRD Off-Road; ultimate off-road TRD Pro; and top-of-the-line Limited.
