Whether you want to hit the trails after a long day of work or you want to bring your kayaks to the local lake for a weekend paddle session, the Toyota lineup is filled with adventure-ready vehicles that can get you and your gear there in style. Car shoppers looking for a compact crossover ready to tackle light off-roading will find their perfect fit with the 2018 Toyota RAV4 while serious adventurers that spend most of their time far from the nearest road will be more at home in the 2018 Toyota 4Runner.

The 2018 Toyota 4Runner offers specialized off-roading and outdoor features, but they come with a significant price increase both at the dealership and at the fuel pump. Serious outdoor enthusiasts may find the price level of the 2018 4Runner justified thanks to the added performance and power. But, if casual adventures are more your style, we suggest sticking with the 2018 Toyota RAV4.

Off-Road Performance Features

If you are interested in the 2018 Toyota RAV4 and are considering doing light off-roading, we would suggest checking out the brand-new Adventure trim level. The Adventure trim offers specialized off-road features not found on traditional RAV4 models like a higher ride height, 18-inch alloy wheels, large overfender flares, panel guards, standard roof rails, and an available Tow Prep Package that makes it possible to tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped.

If serious off-roading or towing is in your future, we would suggest the 2018 Toyota 4Runner instead. The TRD Pro and Off-Road trims specifically will offer the best off-road performance with TRD Bilstein shocks and TRD-tuned springs that will limit some of the bouncing felt in the cabin when going over rough terrain. The TRD Pro trim also includes a ¼-inch skid plate, a sliding rear cargo deck, and TRD Pro accessories. To get you safely through even the most unforgiving terrain the 2018 Toyota 4Runner also offers standard 4WD, active traction control, crawl control, multi-terrain select, a locking rear differential, and more.

No matter which adventure you are gearing up for, the 2018 Toyota crossover and SUV lineup can help get you there. Car shoppers near Knoxville can find the 2018 Toyota 4Runner and 2018 Toyota RAV4 at the Fox Toyota dealership in Clinton.
