With the current RAV4’s overwhelming success, the forthcoming redesign is poised to continue the legacy of popularity and innovation. And we’re here to watch the reality unfold. 

This article explores the 2025 Toyota RAV4, discussing the speculations, expectations, and excitement surrounding its potential redesign.

The 2025 Toyota RAV4 Design Will Likely Take A Conservative Approach

Toyota has had quite a year, ranging from the subtle introductions of the Prius Prime plug-in hybrid and Corolla Cross Hybrid to more impactful reveals like the expanding Nightshade family and the trio of GR special editions. Notable stars in the lineup included the 2024 Grand Highlander, the N400 Tacoma mid-size pickup, and the highly anticipated return of the 2024 Land Cruiser.

The rumor mill, however, suggests that Toyota’s momentum won’t slow down with the autumn 2024 model year refreshes. Whispers are circulating about the potential introduction of Corolla Cross unibody compact pickup truck versions to rival the Ford Maverick and Hyundai Santa Cruz. There’s also talk about a ‘Land Hopper’ variant of the 2024 Land Cruiser, positioned as a spiritual successor to the FJ Cruiser and a compact addition to the LC family.

Various content creators are envisioning the future, with a particular focus on the 2025 Toyota RAV4. Some anticipate a substantial refresh for the upcoming model year, while others predict an entirely new generation. While these renderings provide a satisfying glimpse into a complete redesign, it’s important to note that they are purely speculative. Even the creators acknowledge that Toyota will take a more conservative approach to the 2025 Toyota RAV4’s design.

2025 Toyota RAV: Engine And Performance

The standard engine in the current RAV4 is the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. Paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, this powertrain produces 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. 

Standard front-wheel drive is available on all RAV4 trims, except for the Adventure and TRD Off-Road, which exclusively feature all-wheel drive. For the LE, XLE, and XLE Premium trims, there is the option to equip a straightforward all-wheel-drive system.

If Toyota maintains a conservative approach, then the 2025 RAV4 might carry the sa,e standard engine, with more powerful turbocharged options as well. Eco-conscious buyers will enjoy a hybrid 2025 RAV4 with a more advanced hybrid system. 

Another carryover on the 2025 Toyota RAV4 will be the torque vectoring, which is available in AWD systems on the Adventure, Limited, and TRD Off-Road. To improve fuel economy, the Torque vectoring option disconnects the rear axle.  

Infotainment and Connectivity

We think the next-gen RAV4 will carry similar entertainment and navigation features, with a few improvements. 

Expect the base 2025 RAV4 trims to feature the same 8.0-inch touchscreen. The Limited and TRD Off-Road will feature a larger 10.5-inch display. 

While most models are equipped with a 7.0-inch display in the gauge cluster, the XLE Premium and TRD Off-Road offer an optional 12.3-inch fully digital gauge display, which comes standard on the Limited trim.

2025 Toyota RAV4 Pricing

For the 2024 model year, the Toyota RAV4 comes in six trim levels: LE, XLE, XLE Premium, Limited, Adventure, and TRD Off-Road grades. With so many trim choices, there is something for everyone and drivers can experience an exceptional blend of power, performance, and comfort. 

Here is the 2024 RAV4 Price Range. 

XLE Premium$34,225
Limited $38,130
TRD Off-road$39,445

We think the 2025 RAV4 will offer the same range of choices, with a slightly higher price range.
