Toyota officially debuts today the new-generation RAV4, a 4,5 meters SUV which is ready to enter the U.S. market early next year.
North American buyers will be able to order the Japanese model with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder unit offering 176 horsepower and 232Nm of torque.
The new engine is linked to a six-speed automatic transmission which benefits from the Sequential Shift system. If the front-wheel drive RAV4 will deliver a fuel economy of 24mpg (city) and 31mpg (highway), the four-wheel drive variant does 22mpg (city) and 29mpg (highway).
There will be a total of three grades starting with the entry-level LE version and up to the XLE and Limited trim levels.
Standard features of the new Toyota RAV4 include ABS, VSC, eight airbags, Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, an eleven-speaker JBL audio system and satellite navigation.
There is no word on the U.S. pricing for the new Toyota RAV4 but expect certain figures to be released very soon.
