For the end of 2024, Toyota is preparing a new truck for the USA market. It will be a small utility pickup truck that will be offered on a modified RAV4 chassis. In 2025, the Toyota RAV4 will share other features with its SUV cousin, and that guarantees it will be built with reliable and powerful engines and a strong chassis that will be modified for a truck.
