2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road Review: Great for Playing in the Mud!

2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road In Our Opinion: The 2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road is the newest member of the automaker's TRD family.

These days about half of all Tundras get sold with a TRD package. Obviously Toyota is eager to extend that sales magic to its line of car-based utilities, but without watering down the value of the TRD brand.
