Based on 1 review
Targeted to be rolled out by Toyota during the late spring or early summer of 2012, the 2013 RAV4 is undergoing a complete redesign—its first since 2006—to allow the small crossover SUV to regain a foothold against similar competition from Chevrolet, GMC, Honda and Hyundai, among others.
The 2013 Toyota RAV4 comes in Base, Limited and Sport trims, which can be equipped with either a 4-cylinder or 6-cylinder engine and can be configured as front-wheel or all-wheel drive, offering a total of 12 trim choices. The 4-cylinder trims have a 2.5-liter DOHC powertrain that attains 179 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque, while the V6 trims have a 3.5-liter DOHC powerplant that reaches 269 hp and 246 lb-ft of torque. Each runs on regular gas, is equipped with a 4- or 5-speed automatic transmission and is expected to attain 23 mpg city/31 highway.
Although the 2013 Toyota RAV4 is not expected to look radically different inside or out from preceding model years, there are rumors that it will get bolder exterior lines that will bring it closer in looks to the carmaker’s own FJ Cruiser.
More important, an electric RAV4, dubbed the RAV4 EV, is expected to debut by year’s end. This will the first electric version of the RAV4 since 2003, but Toyota is hoping for a better result with the new version. The RAV4 EV is expected to be powered by batteries from Tesla Motors and to run at least 100 miles on a single charge.
