    2006 Toyota RAV4

    Hi to all
    It's Surprisingly quick in V6 version and almost as frugal as the 4 Cylinder.
    ---



    ---

    4-cylinder vs. V6. Larger in every dimension, the redesigned 2006 RAV4 now offers V6 as well as 4-cylinder power. Managing Editor Grant Yoxon likes the RAV4's well-designed, spacious interior and "plentiful and well-thought out storage." However, the choice of a "reserved" 4-cylinder or a "muscular" V6 left him "wondering if a single engine with sufficient power for most activities would not have been better than two engines at opposite extremes of the power continuum."

    Getting big huh? Seems like it's outgrown the budget mini-suv market it was in before...wonder if they'll fill in the gap with an all new model.

    Nice 'n peppy with that V6 though.

    Hi YeOldeStonecat

    Size matters, i guess YOSC.

    Usual stuff it seems. Start small and grow till obsolete, then start again with a new model.

    It is fast and mileage is good as well.

    Have a good one, raining like mad here.

    Nice offering for the wifey. (waits for Prey's Its a chicks car comment) The only thing with small SUVs as well as mid size is they look big till you actually try and put something in it. Raining cats and dogs here as well, and going through the weekend. I'm glad I took Wedsnday off and went fishing.

    Hi YeOldeStonecat & Lefty


    YeOldeStonecat & Lefty
    Happy to see i'm not alone in the bad weather dept. Yucky here too. I Had the Air on for the past week, was in the 30C range over the past few days, dropping to the 24C range for the next couple, which suits me just fine.

    Looks to have plenty of room and versatile seating in the rear, allowing you to fold both or either seat.

    Lucky Wifey. Nice Fish by the way.

    Actually, the new redesign is a lot less girly, and with that V6 in it, should finally get movin! Though I did absolutely SMOKE one of them a few days ago on the NY Thruway! Poor bastard thought he had a chance!

    Either it was the 4cyl version, or they didn't have their foot on the gas. Did you see the 0-60 of the V6? 6.7 seconds? Yer Pukon can't do that!

    Yeah I know they don't come with neon running-board lights and fuzzy dice from the dealership, and that gold crown on the dashboard.
