RAV4 Factory Stereo Specs


The Toyota Rav4 is the company's answer to a smaller-sized sport utility vehicle. It has all the capabilities of the larger vehicle except for extensive towing. Due to the smaller size it is preferable for gas mileage. The vehicle can be four-wheel or two-wheel drive making it appealing for those who travel in the mountains or have to deal with snow. The factory stereo in the SUV comes with many options.

Standard and Six-Changer

  • The standard factory stereo is an AM/FM radio with a CD player. The stereo will read MP3/WMA compact discs. The stereo comes with six speakers, two in the front of the vehicle and four in the back. The stereo is XM radio compatible but you must purchase the subscription separately. One of the options on the standard stereo is to add a six-CD changer to the system. This sits in the trunk, so you must pre-load the CDs. If you upgrade to this option, it comes with a 90-day free trial to XM Radio.

JBL Upgrade

  • You can upgrade to a JBL radio system. This comes with the AM/FM package and the 90-day free trial to the XM Radio. The JBL comes standard with a six-disc changer and can be installed as an in-dash disc changer or in the trunk. The version in dash has a load button allowing you to load the CDs one by one into the system. The CD player has MP3/WMA playback capability. There are nine speakers, four in the front and five in the back, including a subwoofer. This stereo also has Bluetooth capability, allowing you to run your phone or wireless MP3 player through the stereo system.

Navigation and Stereo

  • The final option for the factory stereo includes a navigation system. This system works with the radio to provide updates on the navigation using an XM radio signal that requires a subscription to the service. The navigation system is touch screen with a DVD load. This stereo has AM/FM capabilities and a single CD player with MP3/WMA playback. There are six speakers, two in the front and four in the back.

Auxiliary Audio Jack

  • All of these stereos are wired to an auxiliary audio jack. This allows you to plug in any type of MP3 player. The JBL system will allow you to see the name from the playlist on the display of the car as will the system that includes the navigation system. The standard stereo does not have this display.
