Toyota officially announced the engines available on the new RAV4, for the European market. From the first information it seems that there will be three engines.
Unveiled in a world premiere at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, the fourth generation Toyota RAV4 won’t be brought to the European public until next spring at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. Until then, all images available cover only the U.S. version.
2013 Toyota RAV4 – Engines
Although the 2013 Toyota RAV4 debut on the European market will occur only in March, this doesn’t prevent the Japanese to provide some information about the engine range.
As you might guess, the Japanese crossover will offer a Valvematic version of the 2.0-liter petrol engine. The four-cylinder unit will provide 158 horsepower and can be attached to a CVT automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive system.
2013 Toyota RAV4 will benefit from a diesel entry-level, a new generation D-4D, with a capacity of 2.0 liters. About this unity there aren’t many details so far.
In the UK it will be seen as an economic version of the model and will be available with a manual gearbox. Customers can choose between AWD and a front-wheel drive system.
The most powerful diesel will be four-cylinder 2.2 liter engine. The D-4D engine guarantees 150 horsepower and can be attended either to a manual or automatic transmission, and is also available with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
