The Toyota RAV4 was redesigned for the 2019 model year featuring a new, more masculine stance and design notes shared with the current Toyota Tacoma. For 2020, Toyota is adding more brash to the model with the 2020 Toyota RAV4 TTRD Off-Road.

As the RAV4 Adventure grade proved, the RAV4 is properly off road worthy. This new trim level builds on the Adventure trim adding more rugged-looking exterior accents including high-rise roof rails, large over-fenders, aggressive bumper and grille designs, and fog lights.

The RAV4 TRD Off-Road has the same 8.6-inch ground clearance of the RAV4 Adventure. Toyota has used what it learned from Ryan Millen's Rally RAV4 to employ a suspension, flow-formed 18×7-inch matte-black TRD alloy wheels, and Severe Snow Rated tires engineered specifically for trail riding. The model has red-colored coil springs, twin-tube shocks are re-valved and feature internal rebound springs to improve control, and new bump stops to maximize compression-direction wheel travel and help improve body control over large bumps and dips. It also has all-wheel drive and Driveline Disconnect.

The RAV4 TRD Off-Road can tow up to 3,500 pounds.

Toyota is selling the model with an exclusive two-tone Magnetic Gray Metallic with Ice Edge Roof combination as well as Midnight Black and Lunar Rock paint jobs with an available Ice Edge roof. The SUV has dark gray front and rear lower fascias, and standard front LED fog lights.

Inside, the RAV4 TRD Off-Road features red stitching and red trim. It seats are covered in black SofTex and the TRD logo is stitched on the headrests. All-weather floor mats and a rear cargo mat come standard.

This car's auction price is already well past $100,000.

Bring a Trailer

The Toyota Supra is a car whose legend has grown, thanks in part to an appearance in a cult classic movie. Enthusiasts were already obsessed with the cars before 2001's Fast & Furious, but the Supra's leading role as a world-beating Japanese supercar cemented its place at the top of the automotive pyramid. Prices for the cars have been out of this world for years, but this 1995 Supra Turbo up for auction on Bring a Trailer might just take the cake as one of the most expensive ever sold.

The Renaissance Red Supra is absolutely mint, and shows just 7,000 miles on the clock. This fourth-generation Supra is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six that was rated at 320 horsepower and 315 pound-feet of torque when new. Unlike so many of the unfortunately-optioned cars seen for sale today, this one has a six-speed manual gearbox. The car is rear-wheel drive and features a limited-slip differential.

Inside, this car is every bit as nice as we'd expected a one-owner, 7,000-mile example to be. The ivory leather upholstery looks new, as does the dash and carpeting. The driver-focused center console has a factory CD player – a big deal in 1995 – and a cassette deck.

These cars are great, no doubt about it, but six figures (or likely way more, in this case) is a crazy number for someone to pay. We'll be watching the auction, though, and so should you. There are four days left for the already silly $136,000 bid to grow – substantially.

New sports car

2022 Subaru BRZ pricing announced

The BRZ is all-new for 2022.

Subaru

Earlier this year, Subaru announced the all-new BRZ sports car, which is coming this fall to replace the previous generation of the car that was discontinued in 2020. It, along with its Toyota cousin, the 86, get more power, updated interiors, and better technology than their predecessors.

The BRZ Premium is the base trim of the car. It starts at $28,955 after destination. Adding an automatic transmission drives the price up by $1,600 to $30,555. The BRZ Limited starts at $31,455 after destination, which shifts to $33,255 with an automatic transmission.

The 2022 BRZ gets a new 2.4-liter four-cylinder Boxer engine that produces 228 horsepower. Part of the appeal of small, sporty cars like BRZ is that they are infinitely more fun to drive than larger, more computerized vehicles. To that end, the car comes standard with a six-speed close-ratio manual transmission. Buyers can opt to swap in a six-speed automatic transmission, but that almost defeats the point of the car. A Torsen limited-slip differential, vehicle stability control with track mode, and 17-inch wheels round out the car's standard performance features.

Inside, the BRZ comes with an 8-inch touchscreen that runs Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, SiriusXM radio, and dual-zone automatic climate controls. A new gauge cluster display can show amps, coolant temperatures, or the car's lateral g-forces, and when track mode is engaged, the tachometer shifts from a circular to a color linear graph.
