The 2014 Toyota RAV4 and 2014.5 Toyota Camry receive new technology options including Entune Audio. These models will be priced slightly higher than in 2013 to reflect these changes. Entune Audio is now standard on all 2014.5 Toyota Camry and 2014 Toyota RAV4 models, with additional features like navigation, app suite, and Entune Premium JBL Audio available either as options or as standard equipment on higher-trim models.

The starting price for the 2014.5 Toyota Camry increases from $23,045 to $23,235 including $810 in delivery fees. 2014 .5Toyota Camry XLE four-cylinder and Camry XLE hybrid models will exhibit the greatest price increase, with standard Entune Audio Plus with navigation adding $955 to the base price.
