It has been some time since I tested out a Toyota RAV4, but my friends at Toyota have remedied that by handing me the keys to a 2022 Toyota RAV4 Adventure. I am going to provide you with the features which I found most worthy to note and something that fell short. Here are the best and worst features of the 2022 Toyota RAV4 Adventure.
PRO: Exterior Takes the Direction of the TRD Off Road RAV4
The 2022 Toyota RAV4 Adventure is slotted right below the RAV4 TRD Off Road, so it takes a few of its more rugged styling cues from rounding up in the model line up than rounding down to the look of the more pavement-friendly RAV4 options.
PRO: Comfortable Ride
You aren’t getting any TRD-tuned suspension with the Adventure that you do with the TRD Off Road trip, but what you do get is a very comfortable ride no matter what horrendous city roads you may have to drive your RAV4 on.
PRO: Feels More Powerful Than It Is
There is a certain RAV4 that happens to be the “fastest” Toyota currently on sale (RAV4 Prime), but the RAV4 Adventure’s 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine pushing 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque certainly felt more powerful than it was, particularly in the Sport mode.
PRO: Such a Functional Cabin
This goes for every RAV4 in the current model line up. Everything is functional and right where you need it. Drive modes are easily pushed and twisted with ease, you get ledges for extra storage on both the driver and passenger side, and every information screen in the gauge cluster or navigation screen presents just what you need no extra fluff.
CON: No Real Off Road Parts to Add To Its Adventure Name
The TRD Off Road RAV4 is certainly no TRD Pro level vehicle, but it does have some TRD finessing in the suspension department along with some more aggressive rubber on its wheels, but the Adventure is more of an appearance package and doesn’t feature any parts to note that will make any adventure easier.
