Hoping to build off the success of its performance-oriented TRD truck lineup, Toyota is bringing an extra dollop outdoorsmanship to its two largest nameplates as well as one of its best-selling car-based utility vehicles.

During the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, the Japanese automaker introduced the world to the 2018 Rav4 Adventure, which brings a sport-tuned suspension, lifted ride height, a towing package and unique blacked-out styling features to the popular crossover.

In addition to the sporty crossover, Toyota also unveiled TRD Sport versions of the Tundra full-size pickup and Sequoia SUV, underscoring its focus on off-road capabilities.

Targeting the “active lifestyle” buyer, Toyota will offer the Rav4 Adventure with either a front-wheel drivetrain with an automatic limited-slip differential or an all-wheel-drive system with dynamic torque control. Other performance-enhancing components include an upgraded radiator and advanced fluid coolers.
