We are learning that for the next year, Toyota will update the RAV4, starting in Japan, with a special cosmetic package called Adventure Offroad II that gives the truck a more rugged, off-road look, as well as additional technology details.
The Roughest and Two-Tone Aesthetic
The 2023 Toyota RAV4 will have some body elements available that will give it a more robust style than anything the line has ever had.
- Black Grill
- Black front bumper that extends to the sides and integrates the lights
- Lower protections and black air intakes
- Side mirror caps in black
- Wheel arches also in the same tone
- Thicker lower side guards
- Black mica for the roof and all black studs
- 18-inch wheels in matte black
- Tailgate trim and bumper in black.
Some of these pieces are painted in a special Gori Gori Back shade that makes them textured and more scratch resistant. This will give the 2023 Toyota RAV4 a two-tone body, although Toyota will continue to offer the traditional single-tone options as well.
inside the 2023 RAV4, the upholstery and other elements have orange-tone stitching and the same color is applied to the edges of the storage compartments, along with the Offroad Adventure badge on the dashboard.
More Technology For All RAV4
The upgrade for Toyota's SUV kicks off with a new 12.3-inch digital dashboard and 10.5-inch infotainment touchscreen with new software and improved navigation, a digital rearview mirror with video recording capability, the front and rear cameras on an SD card. And in safety, the Toyota Safety Sense system was improved in terms of detecting vehicles and pedestrians when turning.
Same Mechanics, but With Optional upgrades
There are no changes to the Toyota RAV4's powertrains for 2023, it stays with the 2-litre engine and hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants, the latter with a 2.4-litre engine and 4x2 or 4x4 drive options.
Also, new will be some off-road-focused options including 225/60 Falken grippy off-road tires, bi-color LED fog lights and a 10mm suspension lift for increase ground clearance. As a key fact, the entry-level versions of the RAV4 will only have the halogen headlights instead of the LED units.
