What’s new in the 2019 RAV4?
Taking inspiration from the FT-AC concept car shown at the LA Auto Show late last year, the all-new 2019 RAV4 promises to turn heads wherever you go. Packed with new and updated features and with a completely new design, both inside and out, the RAV4 offers the same great versatility and reliability it always has in a new, utterly stylish shell.
The fifth-generation RAV4 will be powered by a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine with new technologies and a new transmission – which is an 8-speed direct-shift automatic – that will enable it to deliver more power and efficiency than ever before. Of course, the RAV4 Hybrid will utilize a similar new powertrain, with the same gas engine tethered to the Toyota Hybrid System II and a continuously-variable transmission.
There is plenty more to get excited about throughout the RAV4, but perhaps the most exciting is the new Toyota Safety Sense 2.0. It features enhancements in some of the preexisting technologies, like PCS now being able to detect pedestrians at night, as well as a brand-new technology in Lane Tracing Assist.
All of these design changes, new specs & features, and more come together to create a wonderful new package out of the 2019 Toyota RAV4 and we cannot wait for its arrival later this year.
