Teaser for 2019 Toyota RAV4 debuting at 2018 New York auto present
Toyota will use this month’s 2018 New York International Auto Show to introduce its all-new, fifth-generation RAV4.
No info has been launched aside from a teaser displaying the silhouette of the upcoming small SUV.
The introduction of the brand new RAV4 follows final week’s reveal of the all-new, 12th-generation Corolla in hatchback guise on the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show. Toyota is but to substantiate the brand new Corolla hatch for the United States (the present mannequin is bought right here as a Corolla iM) however we’ll positively be seeing a new Corolla sedan within the not too distant future.
Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) modular platform
Expect the brand new RAV4 to be mechanically much like the brand new Corolla. This means TNGA modular platform underpinnings and inline-Four engines, some coupled with electrical motors in hybrid guise. An Eight-speed transmission can be prone to exchange the present mannequin’s 6-speed, and improved gasoline financial system can be anticipated.
The RAV4 is Toyota’s best-selling nameplate proper now, so the brand new mannequin’s reveal is a large deal for the Japanese automaker. The RAV4 was the fourth best-selling car within the United States in 2017, with patrons snapping up 407,594 examples. Ahead of it have been the Ram, Silverado and F-Series pickups.
