The RAV4’s base price increases by $600 to $28,850 for the entry-grade LE FWD (front-wheel drive) trim level, which otherwise carries over unchanged from last year; all-wheel drive (AWD) is a $2,100 option in LE trim (before taxes and fees).
The 2022 Toyota RAV4’s cosmetic changes begin with the XLE trim, which gets new projector LED headlights; the XLE now comes standard with AWD for $34,550, also a $600 bump over the equivalent 2021 model.
The RAV4 Hybrid’s new SE trim slots in between the XLE and XSE trims with a $37,990 starting price that includes a 7.0-inch touchscreen, power driver’s seat, black 18-inch wheels, heated steering wheel, power tailgate, and rain-sensing wipers. The Hybrid SE is the fifth distinct version of the RAV4 available with Toyota’s gas-electric powertrain. RAV4 Hybrid pricing starts at $33,190 in LE trim, a $700 increase over last year's model.
Among the 2022 RAV4’s other new additions is a Cavalry Blue paint colour available in the Hybrid SE and XSE trims, and on the TRD Off Road model. A few RAV4 models also get new wheel designs.
Carried over from last year is the 2022 Toyota RAV4 Prime plug-in hybrid, whose prices are unchanged at $44,990 in SE trim and $51,590 for the XSE upgrade.
