Model Preview

With the last refresh coming in 2023, we expect the Toyota RAV4 to get a full redesign for the 2027 model year. This upgrade could mean a whole new look for Toyota's staple small SUV. Though we're all used to the boxy upright design that the RAV4 carried for generations, the 2023 refresh gave the vehicle softer edges and more rounded corners. We could see a switch to a more upright style again, as big and boxy is once again becoming the norm among today's vehicles.

On the outside we expect the 2027 Toyota RAV4 to take on a fresh new look with a different grille and nose design. It's possible the RAV4 could also get updated headlights with the latest technology. Whatever the changes, we expect the compact SUV to continue to be a strong offering from Toyota.

Inside the 2027 RAV4 should have the newest technology and a host of standard features. We expect the screen to grow, and we're hoping to see wireless smartphone mirroring and charging, along with navigation as standard. It should feature the same rugged and dependable materials as the current RAV4 on sale.

Since the Toyota RAV4 is getting a total redesign, we expect an upgrade in the engine as well. The last refresh brought a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine which produced 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. We expect the gas-engine model to get a bit more fuel efficient but still maintain the necessary power. Though traditionally the RAV4 only has all-wheel drive available on certain trims, we're hoping this feature becomes a standard fixture for all trims.

Pricing & Release Date

Based on previous Toyota releases, we expect the newly redesigned 2027 Toyota RAV4 to be available in the fall of 2026. With the redesign, the price is expected to increase, making the base 2027 RAV4 MSRP estimated to start around $32,000. We will update the release and pricing information as we get closer to the model landing.

The 2027 Toyota RAV4 will compete against such SUVs as the Jeep Compass, Honda CR-V, Chevy Equinox, Subaru Forester, and Nissan Rogue.

Stay tuned for more information in the months to come.
