How much does the 2021 Toyota RAV4 cost?

The 2021 Toyota RAV4 price starts at $26,350 and goes up to $36,280. There are a variety of trim options within the 2021 Toyota RAV4, with each package and price differing, according to Edmunds. The 2021 Toyota RAV4 LE is the base model and it starts at $27,564. That (and all RAV4s) comes with a 203 hp four-cylinder engine that’s matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. Additionally, you can opt for all-wheel drive if you’re so inclined.

The 2021 Toyota RAV4 LE comes with LED headlights and a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment screen, and it’s capable of connecting to both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There’s a six-speaker sound system in the 2021 Toyota RAV4 LE. In addition, the 2022 RAV4 has Toyota’s suite of safety features. This is called Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 and it includes forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keeping assist.

The Toyota RAV4 XLE ups the RAV4 game

The 2021 Toyota RAV4 XLE is a step up from the Toyota RAV4 LE, and it costs $28,860. The XLE includes everything in the LE, plus additional goodies like keyless remote entry. The RAV4 XLE also has a power-adjustable driver’s seat and blind-spot monitor, as well as additional USB charging ports.

There’s a RAV4 XLE Premium that starts at $31,565. This adds on to the XLE with larger wheels, a slightly raised suspension, and a sunroof. Further, it has a power liftgate and simulated leather upholstery.

The 2021 Toyota RAV4 Adventure costs $34,670 and, as the name suggests, is designed to take your RAV4 off-road. This trim option loses the sunroof and power liftgate but adds fender flares, taller roof rails, and multiple drive modes. There’s also hill descent control and a larger touchscreen that measures eight-inches.

The RAV4 TRD Off-Road and Limited are the most expensive

If you really want your 2021 Toyota RAV4 to be off-road ready, you might choose the 2021 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road, which adds back the sunroof and liftgate, as well as some other off-road extras. These include all-terrain tires, an off-road tuned suspension, and unique black trim elements. The RAV4 TRD Off-Road starts at $37,295.

The most expensive 2021 Toyota RAV4 is the Limited, and it begins at $37,495. This includes everything that the XLE Premium has, but it also includes a chrome exterior trim and heated front seats. There is a digital rearview mirror in the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Limited, and an eight-inch touchscreen with navigation. The Limited comes with a premium 11-speaker sound system.

The 2021 Toyota RAV4 offers a unique blend of maneuverability, comfort, and a style that appeals to people. That combination is likely to keep the RAV4 on top even as the 2022 Toyota RAV4 makes its debut. With so many RAV4 trim levels, it’s easy to choose the compact SUV that fits your needs – and your budget.
