Toyota Revs Up Lineup with New 302-Horsepower RAV4 Prime
• The Most Powerful and Fastest RAV4 Ever • The Most Fuel-Efficient RAV4 Ever • Visible 0-60 MPH in 5.8 Seconds and Approximately 90 MPGe Available in SE and XSE Model Grades • Available Color Head-Up Display, a RAV4 First • Premium Design Features • New for Model Year 2021 and Available in Summer 2020
LOS ANGELES (Nov. 20 , 2019) – The fifth-generation Toyota RAV4, on the market for almost a year, is going to take more places than ever before. The arrival of the first RAV4 TRD Off-Road model was announced earlier this year, and today, at the Los Angeles Auto Show, Toyota has introduced a new premium, fun-drive RAV4 performance model with an estimated 302-horsepower, advanced all-wheel drive, special dedicated suspension and exclusive design features. This just happens to be the first RAV4 plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). And so, in addition to a 0-60 mph ability in a projected 5.8 seconds, which is the second-fastest acceleration time in the Toyota lineup, it can drive approximately 39 miles of battery on just a single charge, as if which is the highest EV range of any PHEV SUV on the market. RAV4 Prime also has an estimated manufacturer of approximately 90 integrated MPGe. Welcome to a new chapter of Toyota SUV performance.
The Toyota RAV4 Prime, a 2021model coming in the summer of 2020, ranks as the most powerful and fastest RAV4 even the most fuel efficient. The 2021 RAV4 Prime is available in both SE and XSE scores, both emphasizing on-road athlete performance and premium comfort and style. In advancing its plug-in hybrid technology, Toyota sees such vehicles as critical to an overall electrification strategy that will also include standard hybrids and electric vehicle (BEVs), including fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) such as the second-generation Mirai. in October.
Think Faster The Toyota RAV4 Prime builds on the RAV4 Hybrid, which is currently the most powerful and most efficient petrol model on the line with sales up 72% last year and currently the best sells hybrid vehicles in the market. The RAV4 Prime improves both performance and efficiency, reflecting Toyota's 20+ years of hybrid vehicle leadership. With the powerful motor-generator, a newly developed high-performance Lithium-Ion battery and a booster booster, the 2021 RAV4 Prime produces an 83-horsepower (hp) that jumps to total system output at RAV4 Hybrid and has the most horsepower segment.
The resulting performance boost is striking: Toyota projects 0-60 mph acceleration at 5.8 seconds faster than the RAV4 Hybrid (7.8 sec.) And in a league of luxury / performance cars. SUVs that are nowhere near Toyota's amazing fuel economy. And, notably, the RAV4 Prime uses regular grade petroleum – not just that much. A comparison with an older RAV4 offers a vivid description of the technology march. The 2006-2012 RAV4 offered an optional 269-hp, 3.5-liter gas V6 engine reaching 0-60 mph in 6.3-seconds, which is a half-second slower than the RAV4 Prime. And, the combined 21 model MPG fuel economy rating only in comparison.
Engineer and Sportier Toyota have engineered the 2021 RAV4 Prime for performance-focused driver and thus offer it with sporty SE and XSE scores. The grade level is new for the RAV4 Prime, and the XSE is currently exclusive to the RAV4 Hybrid. The SE shows a stylish attitude with 18-in. painted and machined alloy wheels and an exclusive grille design on the front and lower spoiler. Piano black exterior accents and a grille / diffuser paint complete the premium look. The SE's equipment is quite comprehensive, with standard heated front seats, 8-way driver's seat with lumbar adjustment, 7-in. Multi-Information Display, Blind Spot Monitor, a leather steering wheel and shift knob with red stitching, power liftgate, and 8-in Audio. touch-screen and Amazon Alexa, as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.
The available Weather & Moonroof Package enables sun, moon and stars while keeping the cold at bay on a heated steering wheel, heated off-board chairs, and air-conditioned wiper wheel- icer, as those wiping the rain-soaked air add to the comfort. choose colors, including the stunning new-to-RAV4 Supersonic Red. Exclusive 19-in. Alloy wheels, the largest ever offering a hybrid RAV4, has a unique two-tone design. The Vertical LED accent light gives the XSE a unique look, while the optional Adaptive Front Lighting System (AFS) with headlamp auto-leveling slightly aims for the beams to rotate as the drivers drive. , luxury and tech with RAV4's first-ever paddle shifters, including moonroof, unique SofTex synthetic leather seat surfaces, wireless smartphone charging, ambient lighting, auto-dimming backview mirrors with integrated garage door opener and the largest multimedia screen on any RAV4 ever. The standard Audio Plus system comes with a 9-in. touch-screen and there is an Audio Audio available with the Dynamic Navigation and JBL speaker system. An available Premium Package drives the RAV4 Prime XSE even more with Premium Audio with Dynamic Navigation and JBL speakers, perforated and ventilated SofTex front seats, RAV4's first head-up display, heated rear SofTex outboard seats, heated steering wheel, panoramic moonroof, digital rear-view mirror, memory driver seat, 4-way passenger seat power, 5-door SmartKey system, rear-type kick kick, Monitor of the Eye of the Eye and yes, more.
How to Do It? Toyota's hybrids have for many years shown high performance with low fuel consumption, and now the 2021 RAV4 Prime makes one of the strongest cases. The RAV4 Prime uses a different version of the RAV4 Hybrid & # 39; s 2.5-liter four-cylinder Atkinson petrol-engine. It produces the same expected 176 hp as the hybrid, but paired with electric motors, the system's total output equals 302 horsepower. The RAV4 Prime passenger space is not compromised by the larger Lithium-Ion battery, as it is mounted beneath the floor. The mounting position of the RAV4 Prime also provides a low center of gravity and improved driving stability. RAV4 Prime's enhanced heat pump HVAC system, based on Prius Prime's and consistent with RAV4 Prime, contributes to an increasing EV range, as energy consumption for cabin temperature control can be significant reduce the range of EV driving.
Electrified Traction The RAV4 Prime uses the same version of Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive (AWD) as the RAV4 Hybrid. In both models, a separate rear mounted electric motor activates the rear wheels as needed, including proactively at startup speeds and also in reduced traction conditions. The AWD system also cuts less during testing for improved steering wheel stability.
Off-pavement, AWD improves hill climbing performance. An optional driver option makes it possible to get restless by braking a rotating wheel and sending torque to the grounding wheel. With the available padger shifters, the driver can "downshift" to increase regenerative braking in steps, encouraging greater control when driving in hilly areas, for example.
As with the RAV4 Hybrid, the innovative Predictive Efficient Drive feature acts like an invisible "hyper-miler" co-driver. With the available navigation system, Predictive Efficient Drive reads the road and learns driver patterns to optimize hybrid battery charging and removal operations based on driving conditions. The system collects data as the vehicle is driven and "remembers" road features such as hills and stoplights and adjusts the operation of the hybrid powertrain to maximize efficiency.
All Toyota RAV4 models are equipped with the standard Toyota Safety Sense (TSS 2.0), which groups a long roster of active safety technologies and capabilities: • Pre-collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w / PD) • Full Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) • Lane Removal Alert with Steering assist (LDA w / SA) • Automatic High Beam (AHB) • Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) • Road Sign Assist (RSA)
XSE Premium Package adds Rear Cross Traffic Braking (RCTB) and Front and Rear Parking assist to Automated Braking (PA w / AB). Beginning with the model year of 2020, each Toyota Hybrid Battery Warranty has been increased from 8 years or 100,000 miles to 10 years from the original date of use, or 150,000 miles, whichever comes first.
