Eric's Autos: 2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road
If you wear Superman's tights, you better be able to fly. Or at least, not get stuck.
And you probably won't if you've got stickers reading "TRD" on the flanks of your Toyota.
Not because of the stickers, mind you.
Like Superman's "S," it's what's those letters signify that matters.
"TRD" is short for Toyota Racing Development, and what that signifies is serious off-road equipment, such as extra ground clearance, off-road suspension tuning and knobby all-terrain tires.
But, until now, you could only get that stuff if you bought a Toyota truck.
Now you can get a RAV4 crossover SUV with the TRD upgrades, too.
What It Is
The RAV4 isn't just another medium-sized, five-door crossover SUV.
It's the very first crossover SUV.
