2008 Toyota Rav4 For Sale
The RAV4 is available with two engines, a 2.4-litre four-cylinder mated to a four-speed automatic, as well as a 3.5-litre V6 with a five-speed automatic transmission.
A version with front-wheel drive is marketed in the U.S., yet all Canadian versions use Toyota's "Energetic Torque Control" 4x4 system, which enables the vehicle to switch over continuously as well as seamlessly between front- and four-wheel settings. A hand-operated securing switch allows a maximum torque split of 55/45 between the front and back wheels, under speeds of 40 km/h. All models come with vehicle stability control as well as traction control, while V6 models add hill-start and downhill assist control.
With the addition of the new four-cylinder Sport trim line, both engines can be found in Base, Sporting activity or Limited arrangement.
Features on the Base versions consist of 17-inch steel wheels, air conditioning, CD/MP3 stereo with auxillary jack, material seats, 60/40 folding and lying rear seats, power locks with keyless access, power home windows, tilt and also telescopic wheel, flooring mats, cruise control, heated mirrors, roofing system shelf, personal privacy cover, soft tire cover, variable recurring wipers with deicer, and recurring rear washer/wiper.
The Sport designs include 18-inch alloy wheels, premium fabric seats, freight web, personal privacy glass, power sunroof, colour-keyed fender flares, black headlamp border and also fog lights.
The Restricted versions include 17-inch alloy wheels, six-CD/MP3 stereo with auxilliary jack, dual-zone automated environment control, leather-wrapped wheel, footwell lights, as well as molded tire cover.
Now supplying comparable visits with both engines, the RAV4 can be rather underpowered in its four-cylinder arrangement; the V6 is a better option, and also not that much of a step up in cost. The 60/40 back seat folds entirely to develop a level baggage space, without needing to turn seat pillows or eliminate head restraints, making it very easy to transform to cargo stowage. In 2008, production is anticipated to relocate from Japan to a brand-new place in Woodstock, Ontario.
