Performance Specs

Among the information we still don’t know about the 2019 Toyota RAV4, are its official performance specifications. The manufacturer has stated that the gasoline-powered versions of the 2019 RAV4 will be getting an updated version of the 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that will not only make a bit more power but will also be more fuel efficient. Previous versions of the Toyota RAV4 held a very significant advantage over the corresponding versions of the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. It would be very unlikely for Toyota to take a step backward in this particular area of automotive design.
