The 2023 Toyota RAV4 is a versatile and well-equipped sport utility vehicle. Its trim levels are set up to maximize its utility for different types of drivers. In this guide, the team at Red McCombs Toyota take you through what each of the six trim levels has to offer, including the price points for each one and what sort of driver is best suited to each.
The RAV4 LE
The LE is the base trim level of the 2023 Toyota RAV4 . It and all other trim levels of this vehicle come powered by an efficient 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine providing 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. It comes tied to an automatic eight-speed transmission. This version of the 2023 RAV4 features an impressive array of high-tech safety features for a vehicle of its class and trim rank, including autonomous lane guidance, traffic sign recognition programming, a camera system, and a pre-collision warning system with automatic emergency braking.
It comes with a six-speaker sound system and an 8-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, wireless Bluetooth, and Sirius XM satellite radio program suites. Steel 17-inch wheels and automatic LED headlights are standard. The LE trim level is available in rear-wheel or all-wheel drive and starts at $27,975 MSRP, the manufacturer’s suggested retail price. The base version of the 2023 RAV4 is ideal for new drivers or those on a budget since it has the most affordable price tag of the set.
The RAV4 XLE
The second trim level for the 2023 Toyota RAV4 has an enhanced cluster of standard safety features, including all of those mentioned for the LE, plus a blind-spot safety system and cross-traffic alert. It upgrades the LE’s manual seating to an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support, making it better for drivers who have to deal with long commutes or frequent road trips.
Distance-pacing cruise control with steering wheel controls, 3GB Wi-Fi Connect access, and dual-zone automatic air conditioning are all available at this trim level. The steel wheels are upgraded to five-spoke silver alloy versions to give an extra touch of class at this level. The XLE sits at $29,485 MSRP.
The RAV4 XLE Premium
The XLE Premium trim level is where things start to get more luxurious. The cloth upholstery is replaced with leatherette, and 19-inch five-spoke silver alloy wheels become available. The express open-and-close tilting and sliding first-row sunroof is one of the best options in this trim, alongside the upgraded projector-beam LED headlights with daytime running lights. SofTex simulated leather upholstery is also available for this model’s seating. It’s excellent at dissipating heat, so it offers all the advantages of leather with none of the discomfort from sun exposure in hot summers.
A pair of 12-volt DC power outlets, push-button start, keyless entry, and the Entune Safety Connect tracker system are all available at the XLE Premium trim level. The Entune system is a 24/7 remote emergency response system that allows drivers to call for aid with the push of a button. The 2023 RAV4 XLE Premium is available for $32,375 MSRP and is best for drivers who want that extra bit of luxury and added safety without a hefty price tag attached.
The RAV4 Adventure
The Adventure trim level of this RAV4 is what it sounds like: the first trim level of the set geared toward off-road adventures. Drivers will love its advanced multi-terrain select system featuring downhill control assistance. The active shutters on the grille help reduce engine bay contamination, and the all-wheel-drive system comes with a torque-vectoring feature. This technology greatly increases cornering capability, wheel traction, and general vehicle stability when off-road.
The wheels are individually motored with torque vectoring, so each one gets the torque it needs as it needs it in order to keep hugging the road. The Adventure trim level comes with special black badging, an orange-stitched interior, and an available two-tone exterior paint job. It starts at $34,170 MSRP and is perfect for off-road drivers who want to save around $3,400 and skip the bells and whistles of the TRD Off-Road version.
The RAV4 Limited
The Limited trim level of the 2023 RAV4 comes with a 120-volt AC power outlet and a spectacular sound system upgrade. This extra feature takes this RAV4 trim from six standard speakers to a 10-speaker JBL premium system with a powerful 800-watt amplifier and an enhanced bass subwoofer. It is available with an infotainment center upgrade from the standard 8 inches to 10.5 inches with automatic equalization programming. This programming suite enhances sound clarity, note detail, and balance to impressive degrees. This version of the 2023 Toyota RAV4 is clearly geared toward music lovers and is available for $36,280 MSRP.
The RAV4 TRD Off-Road
The TRD Off-Road version of the 2023 RAV4 is a masterwork of off-road engineering. It includes specially tuned TRD suspension with off-road struts and shocks, a height-adjustable power liftgate, and Falken Wildpeak all-terrain tires. Its steel front skid plate is stamped with special TRD lettering, and the inside features red interior stitching and all-weather floor mats. An expanded 12.3-inch driver instrument cluster, heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, the incredible JBL sound system, and a wireless smart device charging pad are all available at this trim level.
A digital rearview mirror and a rear parking system with automatic emergency braking are standard. The rearview mirror is situated to avoid view blockage by rear passengers and whatever you’re carrying in the bed. An intelligent clearance and back sonar system is available for drivers who want to drive through tighter spaces safely. This great off-road trim level is available for $37,595 MSRP and is ideal for those who want the ultimate off-roading experience with a luxurious and entertaining interior layout.
