Barcelona red is pretty hot. The more I look at it the more I like it. 

The colors offered in this trim are rather basic. You don't get the cool ones unless you go TRD Pro...army green, desert sand. 


Has some standout power for sure. Pretty sharp

The Army Green is slick. The hybrid RAV4 are pretty awesome to. My wife almost got one but ultimately went with a lexus

What trim? 

One thing that kinda puts me off is only 270hp. But I can deal with that considering the rock solid reliability.

I don’t really plan to off-road, but I do want a trim that allows it if I want. Mostly will be used for snowboarding days and road trips. 


I have no idea really.  Whatever one I got assigned on any given day.

Ahh so like a rented day tour or something? That would be fun. I've done any legit offroading in a truck/SUV. 

Also, most likely going with the broker. I'm annoyed with the search already. Prices are all over the place and 90% of the ones I find in my budget are from rental fleets.  I'm not totally against that, but would like to avoid if I could.

Update: Broker is deployed. I should have the truck in 1-3 weeks. Splurged for a 2021, in Magnetic Gray Metallic. 

I was really considering Tacoma. But the inside space is tight, especially for 4 adults.
