      Man, if Toyota offers a V6 in this 2019 RAV4...we would have a real winner :).

      To those that are saying turbo engines are not reliable... I’m sure Toyota would make sure to have a very reliable turbo engine if they made one.
      Have a twin-turbo Audi in my family. Factory turbos at over 200k, engine has been reliable except for the vehicle electronics

      just got rid of my 17 civic sport touring. was a good car, but it was cvt and the turbo caused the engine to run SO hot all the time. makes you wonder how long that engine could really last, and how long the turbo could last. I bought the 19 adventure w/ jbl stereo. I m SO happy i no longer have cvt or turbo to worry about. this adventure is SO nice.

      Thanks for the video review. Is there a reason why it is almost impossible to find the tongue weight capacity for towing? This is just as important as the tow rating of 3,500 lbs. Does anyone know the tongue or hitch weight that the Rav4 Adventure can handle?

      But towing capacity is a much-trumpeted upgrade feature of the Rav4 Adventure over other versions. The other versions are 1,500 lbs towing capacity while the Adventure is promoted heavily as taking that rating up to 3,500 lbs. But, if the hitch capacity is the same as the other versions, that makes the 3,500 rating pretty much useless since heavier trailers are going to also have heavier tongue weights. I'm wondering if the unusual silence means it's a no go! I even contacted a Toyota dealership, and they couldn't or wouldn't tell me.

      Frank Stonehouse Great question. This was not discussed at the press conference. Probably because towing is not a primary function of the RAV4, but we’ll try to get the answer. Thanks

      Just get any Trailhawk edition renegade or compass if your going off road at all. True low range will save your butt!

      Nobody wants a turbo. It’s less reliable. Turbos break down.

      That makes no sense bring a turbo? This 2.5 L produces more horsepower than most of the competition that are using turbos. When it comes to reliability durability, and resell value Toyota has everything in the bag and they’re going to sell it ton of these. The new torque vectoring I will drive that’s in the RAV4 is a game changer, it makes the RAV4 extremely capable on and off the road

      I disagree with Ron car makers are getting away from turbo's, Hyundai, Subaru, and Honda will get rid of turbo's in it's next generation vehicle.

      Cherokee Trailhawk V6 is the better buy if you want this class of off road. Cheaper too. Go with Rav if you just want a city and highway car.

      Subaru doesn't have 8.6 to 8.7" of clearance. It has 8.7 throughout the SUV sector, just to clear that up. Also, their CVT is not a single band but double. And it's a chain too, I believe. Lastly, the Forester, even in base, is adventurous. I wish this car was cheaper because the Subaru Touring Forester is probably worth it, instead of the RAV4. IMO.
