The V6 has been gone since 2013, people need to get over it. This does look so much better than our robo-mouse 2014 RAV4 but we're in it for 5 more years.

Hummm... Interesting info. Did Chrysler ever resolve the issues with the 9-speed trans in the Cherokees? I'm guessing yes, since it's been a few yrs.

drove one . the 4s generate their horsepower at some insane high rpm like 6300. they are buzzy and noisy.

the hybrid is better but more complicated, small towm mechanics wont be able to work on it


These products are all new every year?? They are a revolution!!! Razor blades, mens shirts, TVs, wiper blades, gutter guards, hearing aids... according to the ads. But also all new last year

Is it actually any more capable than a normal AWD one? Any low range/low range simulator? What's the crawl ratio? Any skid plates or tow hooks or lift?

Like the two tone, spices things up a little.

I'd get a 4Runner instead.

Yes, I believe ZF got the 9spd sorted, as Chrysler was definitely not the only marque using it, or having issues with it.

Unless your willing on getting a used one from 2005-2012, there's no V6 option for you!

That steering wheel does look really cheapo. The rest of the interior looks good in my opinion so I'm not sure what is going on with that thing. I looked on Autotrader I think only the Limited has a leather wrapped steering wheel from what I can tell.

"I'm Getting the I-Wants for One of These 2019 Toyota RAV's !!!" You and me both. Better in some ways than my '18 Equinox AWD, and the hybrid's electric motor driving the rear axle is awesome.

And it's a smoother transmission running in the hybrid, with that initial torquey electric motor push off the line. Hybrid definitely.

Toyota is definitely going after Cherokee buyers. The squared-off flender flares remind you of a Cherokee. This RAV4 might suffice for someone wanting the dependability of a Toyota, as some are absolutely turned away from Jeep because of their bad reputation.

I drove a XLE Premium (non-hybrid) and a LE Hybrid. There is no comparison. The hybrid model is quieter, has significantly better acceleration (and fuel economy) and there is no clunky 8-spd auto to feel.

Unfortunately you cannot get the Adventure pkg on a hybrid.

In speaking with a Jeep sales manager a few months ago, he confided that he would not recommend anyone buy any jeep, except for the Grand Cherokee and Wrangler, because the smaller ones have many things making them unreliable.

I like the new Rav4, but after reading there is not much to the Adventure Package except cosmetics.
