Like many RAV4 owners I also own a 6-cylinder, compact Toyota crossover from that generation, mine being a Highlander. It is easy to understand why the owners of the older RAV4 V6 miss it, but based on what Toyota and Lexus are saying and doing, there is no evidence it is ever coming back.Is the 2016 Toyota RAV4’s V6 over forever?
Now that the 2016 RAV4 has been announced, we can read the tea leaves. The V6 is over forever in the RAV4. However, that does not mean the 2.5-liter four-banger will remain the only engine option going forward. When the last generation RAV4 was fitted with the 3.5-liter engine and AWD, it was the company’s quickest vehicle to 60 MPH.How fast is the Toyota RAV4 0 to 60 time?
The result was a compact SUV with 270 horsepower and a 0-to-60 time of something like 6.5 seconds. And it was a real sleeper: Even if you happened to know the V6-powered RAV4 was unusually fast, you’d have to notice the small “V6” badge on the outside to know you were looking at the hot-rod version.What kind of engine does a 2016 Toyota RAV4 have?
New RAV4 Engines. Toyota’s new 2016 RAV4 will carry on with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder, and Toyota’s sales are through the roof. Standardizing on a 4-cylinder engine bay keeps things simple.
