2007 Toyota RAV4 Overview

The RAV4 saw minimal change in 2007, following a complete redesign for the previous model year. Like the Prius, the old RAV4 was frequently scoffed at for its awkward egg-shape styling, but 2006 brought a new body and a new platform. The larger third generation model has abandoned the Corolla platform, adding a longer wheelbase and more interior room.
The 2007 RAV4 is available with 2WD and AWD drive trains, 4- and 6-cylinder engine options, and three trim levels. There are twelve variations to choose from. Seat-side and side-curtain airbags are now standard safety items. Other included features are tinted windows, air conditioning, a CD audio system with MP3 CD compatibility, cruise control, and power windows and door locks. The Sport is the mid-level trim, set apart by 18-inch wheels, a roof rack, heated mirrors, and a sport-tuned suspension. The high-end Limited RAV4 features power folding mirrors, a power driver's seat, dual-zone climate control, and an in-dash CD changer. The Limited is the only model eligible for the rear seat DVD entertainment system. Third-row seating is optional on all models.
The crossover SUV's power plant options are a 2.4 liter inline four or a 3.5 liter V-6, both enhanced by Variable Valve Timing + intelligence. The four-cylinder engine generates 166 horsepower and 165 pound-feet of torque, while the V-6 ups the horsepower to 269 and torque to 246 pound-feet. Each of the three trims can be fitted with either engine. 2WD or AWD is available on a all trims, and transmissions depend on the engine. The 2.4L works with a four-speed automatic, and the 3.5L uses a five-speed automatic.
Curb weight ranges from 3,300 to 3,675 pounds, depending on engine and drive train. The V-6 models will pull 3,500 pounds when equipped with a special towing package. The efficient 2WD four-cylinder RAV4 has an EPA estimate of 24/30 mpg, while the 4WD V-6 model consumes fuel the fastest, at 21/28 mpg.
