2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Launch
The Toyota RAV4 crossover is already one of the most impressive compact crossovers on the road with an expansive and versatile interior that is supported by an athletic, efficient powertrain. Considered one of the elite crossovers on the road, it is hard to imagine this Toyota model can get any better, but that is exactly what is happening with the upcoming 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid launch. As one of the world’s premier hybrid manufacturers, it is really no surprise that a Toyota RAV4 Hybrid model is in the cards, but that doesn’t quell our excitement at Allan Nott.
Everyone will be able to meet the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid when it is unveiled at the New York International Auto Show on April 2, 2015 at 12:30 E.D.T. As a replacement for the Toyota RAV4 EV, the hybrid edition should deliver countless driving thrills in addition to frugal fuel economy numbers. While we don’t know many facts about the new RAV4 Hybrid, the teaser image recently released shows new style elements and the availability of a luxury Limited trim.
One of the primary focuses of the launch will be the reveal of the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid powertrain. Facts and specifications have not yet been released, but many sources point to the hybrid crossover employing the current 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 176 horsepower with an added electric motor component in the model of the Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive system. In that configuration, the RAV4 Hybrid will possess a similar drivetrain to the Toyota Camry Hybrid model. Another power platform consideration is that the new Toyota hybrid may employ one of the current Toyota Prius drive systems.
Possibly the greatest element of the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid launch is that it will fill a hybrid void in the compact crossover segment. While we can’t offer you a chance to get behind the wheel of the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid quite yet, you can experience the other benefits of the Toyota RAV4 when you contact us to schedule a test drive at Allan Nott.
