The Toyota RAV4 is the first compact crossover made in Japan and started sales in the US in 1996-1999. The first engine was the 2.0 liter 3SFE but re-designed for a RWD vehicle. The Toyota Camry used the 2.0 liter 3SFE for years but the 2 motors do not fit each other. The Rav4 was available in 2 wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Some people get 4 wheel drive and all-wheel drive confused. An all-wheel drive never stops delivering power to all of the wheels. A 4 wheel drive vehicle uses a transfer case that allows the operator to disconnect the front or wheel wheels from getting power depending on the type truck it is. The transmission offered is a 5 speed manual or a 4 speed automatic.
In 2000-2005 the 2nd generation of RAV4 hit the dealerships. It still had a 2.0 liter engine but was a 1AZ engine. The Rav4 now had an available 2.4 liter 2AZ which was also used in the Toyota Camry. The 2.0 liter engine had VVT which helped with power and torque.
The 2006-2012 RAV4 was a total ground up new crossover SUV. To start is now comes with electric power steering. That helps take a load off of the engine. The motors used are the 2.0 liter 1AZ, 2.4 liter 2AZ, 2.5 liter 2AR and the 3.5 liter V6 2GR. Toyota really had gotten aggressive as the crossover market grows. The RAV4 is in the same market as the Volkswagen Tiguan, Subaru Outback, Mazda CX-7 and the Nissan Xterra. With this large list of competitors the need to continue to improve the Toyota RAV4 is an every present issue. To keep up with demand, the RAV4 is now offered in an EV model. This is a battery electric version that is slated to be released this year.
