The Toyota Rav4 has become more than a fun-loving compact SUV as it’s been transformed over the years into so much more. The Rav4 offers some of the premium qualities of a mid-sized sedan, but much of the functionality of a full-sized SUV, and all the while of being very affordable. The 2018 Toyota Rav4 will maintain the same concept while offering many new features we’ve yet to see in the current and past models.
The 2018 Rav4 is expected to become very popular with those wanting the functionality of an SUV and ride and comfort of a sedan which is exactly what Toyota’s hoping for. The new concept will boast many similarities of the current model but will reinvigorate the concept itself.
The following 2018 Toyota Rav4 specs, features, price, and release date for the upcoming LE, XLE, Limited, and Hybrid will all be detailed in this comprehensive preview.
2018 Toyota Rav4 Specs and Features – LE, XLE, Limited, and Hybrid
Toyota is likely to bring back the same four models giving consumers the ability to pick and choose the options along with the price. The 2018 Toyota Rav4 specs and features will offer many distinct differences between the four models including the new Hybrid that’s expected to be even more efficient than the current model.
The standard features should include a dual zone climate control, power moonroof, Bluetooth, GPS navigation, rearview camera, JBL acoustic audio, USB ports, and more than one 12-volt power outlet. Optional features will include a power liftgate, flat folding second-row seating, and optional electronic upgrades across all models.
Enhancements we’re hoping to see which were problems noted in the current model include a sliding rear seat, much more comfortable seats, upgraded interior trim options, and adding a bit more legroom for 2nd row passengers.
The engine specs will be typical for a compact SUV including a 2.5-liter 180-hp engine along with a 6 speed automatic and auto-manual selectable transmission. We’re now hearing rumors that a 6-cylinder engine option will become available, but it’s yet to be confirmed. The gas mileage will see a slight improvement giving consumers around 25MPG/city and 32MPG/highway.
