According to the information our team has got, one of the most popular and best-selling crossovers coming from Toyota has been on its way to hit the market as a 2019 Toyota RAV4 model. The new RAV4 will be more powerful than its predecessors and the fans will be more than satisfied with its next-generation changes and improvements.
The 2019 Toyota RAV4 is going to appear as an attractive crossover wearing a brand-new design. This model will be based on brand-new platform known as the modular TNGA platform that has already been seen on the newest Prius, Camry and CH-R. The fifth-generation RAV4 should also be lighter in weight which will only improve its efficiency and overall performance. The crossover is also expected to be much safer. The longer wheelbase will allow more room inside its cabin, although the RAV4 has always been known as spacious. We have been informed that the new crossover will also improve its suspension system and offer better off-road abilities. The front fascia of this model has been largely compared to the latest Prius and Camry. You will notice a larger grille and the entire vehicle will appear more angular and dynamic. The new RAV4 will probably be offered in XLE, LE, SE and Platinum trim as it has been the case with its predecessor. The exterior features and the equipment will depend on the trim you choose. This model will also be available in five exterior colors.
As we have already mentioned, the 2019 Toyota RAV4 will provide a modern and even more spacious cabin that will perfectly accommodate up to five adult passengers. The interior of this crossover has been planned to be functional. The driver will get numerous next-generation features and connectivity options provided on a larger touch-screen display in the center console. Higher trims might even get a color head-up display, so you will be able to enjoy your ride without taking your eyes off the road. Safety systems and driver assist features such as automatic cruise control, multi-camera parking system, rear cross-traffic alert, hill start assist, forward collision warning and trailer sway control will also be included.
The current model uses a 2.5-liter inline-4 that delivers 176 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Well, the fans should know that the 2019 Toyota RAV4 will offer a more powerful four-cylinder engine that will probably be mated to a brand-new eight-speed automatic transmission. Such an engine is expected to produce more than 180 horsepower and 200 pound-feet of torque. A rumor has it that Toyota might even abandon the current 2.5-liter and use either 1.8-liter or 2.0-liter turbo-four in its 2019 RAV4.
2019 Toyota RAV4 Release Date and Price
The release date of the 2019 Toyota RAV4 has not been confirmed yet, but this crossover should be expected in the market in 2018, probably in August. The current model starts around $24,500 so you can expect a slightly higher price for a base 2019 RAV4 model.
