It’s crazy to think that 2019 is on its way, but it is! With a new year comes new vehicles, and one of the new Toyota models that we’re the most excited about is the 2019 Toyota Rav4. Not only is the Rav4 one of our best-selling vehicles here at Nelson Toyota, but it’s also one of the best-selling SUVs in the world. Each year it gets better and better, and we’re here to share the latest in great tech and features from the upcoming Rav4.
Not everyone knows what car manufacturers mean when commercials say all-new. This means that a vehicle is being entirely redone. Instead of changing some things and keeping the body style and main components the same, the full vehicle has been redesigned. This is true of the 2019 Rav4 and whew, it sure looks good. The 5th generation Rav4 leaves it all on the road. It dominates with bold styling choices and is built upon Toyota’s revolutionary new platform. The 2019 Rav4 will surely impress.
It’s powered by a Dynamic Force 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Reviewers have revealed that the base engine is 40% more efficient than previous editions. It sits on a longer wheelbase and rides proudly on the impressive TNG platform with multi-link suspension. It has shorter overhangs and sits on a 57% more rigid unibody frame. You'll be more stable than the star quarterback on Friday night.
The 2019 Rav4 will include new models: Trail, premium Limited, and XSE Hybrid. The Trail will be ready for off-road adventures (and looks it, too), the Limited is a premium model with high-quality finishes, and the new XSE Hybrid is a sporty model with pep. Depending on the needs of you and your family, there’s a Rav4 out there for you.
Gone are the days of boring clusters and dash consoles. The 2019 Rav4 has a variety of gorgeous interior options based on your trim level. The entertainment units are sleek and eye-catching, and all of the controls are easily accessible.
No matter what trim you pick, every powertrain has become more powerful. Whether you’re considering a gas or hybrid model, you’ll be able to get there with more power. Available options include Multi-Terrain select for you off-roaders out there, as well as Dynamic Torque Vectoring and AWD.
You’ll also find upgraded tech with a new edition of the Entune entertainment system that Toyota drivers know and love, as well as Standard Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 and even Apple CarPlay. You’ll be fully-connected and safer than ever in the 2019 Rav4. The touchscreen is 7 inches wide, which will give you plenty of space without squinting to see. There are also rumours of up to 5 USB ports for all of your technology!
Better Yet, it’s Canadian. We love the true north and are proud to say that the 2019 Hybrid Model will also be made at TMMC in Ontario. We expect to see the units start arriving in late 2018, with Hybrid models following in the new year. Toyota has gone bigger and better than ever before with the Rav4 lineup.
