Toyota has unveiled their new RAV4 rally car.

Set to be driven by Ryan Millen, the racer is based on the 2015 RAV4 LE and features a roll cage, an upgraded suspension and BFGoodrich all-terrain tires.  The model is also 500 lbs (226.7 kg) lighter than the road-going variant which should prove useful considering the crossover has a stock 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 176 bhp (131 kW) and 172 lb-ft (232 Nm) of torque.

The RAV4 rally car will compete in a variety of events this year including the Idaho Rally, the Prescott Rally and the Mt Hood Rally.
