Engine of 2016 Toyota RAV4
As for the engine is concerned, the previous 2.5 liter has started to become outdated. Sticking around for 4 years within the RAV4 mark, the car has for a long time needed an update under the hood. What is in stored for the 2016 Toyota RAV4 are two options. The base model would include the 1.5 which have been developed alongside BMW , while there is also the mention of a 2 liter version as well. The former one is capable of providing 150 hp of power, while the latter one is a bit stronger and explodes at 250 horsepower. These are very moderate and decent picks for the new RAV4 vehicle and are pretty decent as choices for the new versions of the car.

There are many factors that need to be taken into account and perhaps we shall have to wait a little bit longer for the actual and confirmed price tag for the vehicle. Our best guess is that the car is going to be priced around $24,000, which is more than enough for this type of car.
2016 Toyota RAV4 will be released in the 3rd quarter of the next year.
