Toyota extends its RAV4, Sequoia and Land Cruiser lineups with models that boast a host of extra features

February 07, 2019

Toyota turned up the heat on the red-hot SUV segment in frigid Chicago.
In addition to the 2020 Tacoma, it used the auto show to call attention to a TRD Off-Road version of the new RAV4, a TRD Pro variant of the Sequoia and a Heritage Edition of the Land Cruiser to celebrate the iconic SUV’s more than 60 years in the United States

For instance, the 2020 RAV4 TRD Off-Road — set to arrive in the fall — gets such upgrades as:
  • Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive
  • TRD-tuned suspension inspired by Ryan Millen’s Rally RAV4 race team
  • Falken Wildpeak A/T Trail all-terrain tires
  • TRD 18-inch flow-formed matte black aluminum wheels
  • TRD badging and other exclusive treatments inside and out

Highlights of the 2020 Sequoia TRD Pro — also due out in the fall — include:
  • TRD-tuned Fox internal bypass shock absorbers
  • Rigid Industries LED fog lights
  • 18-inch forged-aluminum BBS wheels
  • Black cast-aluminum running boards
  • TRD front skid plate
  • Top-level multimedia with JBL Premium Audio and Navigation
  • Smart Key with push button start
  • TRD Pro badging and other exclusive treatments inside and out

Conversely, the Land Cruiser Heritage Edition takes more of a minimalist approach, ditching the running boards, third-row seating and side molding in favor of:
  • Darkened headlight housings
  • Fog lights with dark chrome surrounds
  • Side mirrors with darkened chrome details
  • Bronze forged-aluminum BBS wheels
  • A vintage Land Cruiser logo
  • Exclusive black leather-trimmed upholstery
Toyota will make a limited number of these Land Cruisers, with sales starting late summer.
