Toyota Reving Up Lineup with new 302-horsepower RAV4 Prime
• The most powerful and fastest RAV4 in history • The most efficient RAV4 with the highest fuel consumption in history • Projection 0 to 60 MPH in 5.8 seconds and estimated 90 MPGe • Available SE and XSE grades • Available Head-Up color display, first RAV4 • Premium design features • New for 2021 and available in summer 2020
LOS ANGELES (November 20, 2019) – The fifth generation Toyota RAV4, which is on the market barely a year, is issued to more places than ever. The first RAV4 TRD off-road was announced earlier this year, and today Toyota will showcase the new premium performance RAV4 with an estimated 302 horsepower, advanced all-wheel drive, sporty suspension and exclusive design features at the Los Angeles Motor Show. It also happened as the first hybrid electric vehicle RAV4 plug-in (PHEV). So, in addition to being able to do 0 to 60 km / h in the planned 5.8 seconds, the second fastest acceleration time in the Toyota line-up, it can pass approximately 39 miles per battery, the highest EV range of all PHEV SUVs on the market . RAV4 Prime also estimates the manufacturer has 90 combined MPGe. Welcome to the new chapter on Toyota SUV performance.
The Toyota RAV4 Prime, the 2021, which will arrive in the summer of 2020, will break through as the most powerful and fastest RAV4 in history, while being the most fuel-efficient. The 2021 RAV4 Prime will be available in the SE and XSE classes, emphasizing athletic performance on the road and first-class comfort and style. With advances in hybrid plug-in technology, Toyota considers such vehicles to be critical to the overall electrification strategy, which will also include standard hybrids and battery-powered electric vehicles (BEVs), along with fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) as introduced. Mirai second generation. in October.
Think Faster Toyota RAV4 Prime builds on the hybrid model RAV4, which is currently the strongest and most efficient model in the series with sales up 72% over last year and currently the best-selling. hybrid vehicle on the market. RAV4 Prime enhances performance and efficiency, reflecting Toyota's leadership for over 20 years. Featuring more powerful motor generators, a newly developed high-capacity lithium-ion battery and booster converter, the 2021 RAV4 Prime delivers a 83-horsepower (hp) jump in overall system performance over a hybrid RAV4 and has the greatest performance in its
acceleration 0-60 km / h in 5.8 seconds, faster than the RAV4 (7.8 sec) and in the league with luxury / powerful SUVs that are nowhere near this Toyota model. remarkable fuel consumption. And above all, RAV4 Prime uses standard-quality gasoline – just not that much. Comparison with older RAV4 models provides a vivid picture of the technology process. RAV4 2006 – 2012 offers an optional 269 hp V6 petrol engine with a 3.5-liter capacity, reaching 6 to 60 km / h in 6.3 seconds, half a second slower than the RAV4 Prime. And in comparison, 21 the combined MPG fuel consumption classification simply increases compared to this model.
Sporty and Sportier Toyota designed the 2021 RAV4 Prime for a performance-oriented driver and therefore offers it in the SE and XSE sports classes. The SE class is new to the RAV4 Prime and XSE is currently exclusive to the RAV4 Hybrid. SE defies its sporting attitude with 18-in. painted and machined light alloy wheels and exclusive front grille design and front lower spoiler. Piano black accents and painted grille / diffuser complete the look. The SE equipment is quite complex, with standard heated front seats, 8-way electric driver seat with lumbar adjustment, 7-in. Multi-information display, blind spot monitor, leather steering wheel and radio button with red stitching, electrically operated lift gate and 8-in sound. touch screen and Amazon Alexa, as well as compatibility with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The available Weather & Moonroof package allows sun, moon and stars to fly, while the heated steering wheel keeps the heated steering wheel, heated rear outboard seats. and a windscreen wiper defroster, while rain sensing windscreen wipers increase comfort.
As with the current RAV4 Hybrid XSE, the premium version of this class stands separately with the two-color exterior color scheme joining the black roof with select colors including the remarkable supersonic red RAV4. Exclusive 19-in. The lightest alloy wheels, the largest ever offered on the hybrid RAV4, have a unique two-color design. Vertical LED accent lights give the XSE a distinctive look, while the optional Adaptive Front Lighting System (AFS) with automatic headlight compensation partially focuses the beams on bends when driving.
XSE enhances sport, luxury and technology with the first RAV4 shifting coulters, along with a lunar roof, unique synthetic leather SofTex surfaces, smart phone charging, ambient lighting, auto-dimming rearview mirror with integrated garage door opener and the largest multimedia display ever RAV4. The standard Audio Plus system comes with a 9-in input. touch screen and a premium sound is available that includes dynamic navigation and a JBL speaker system. Available premium package moves the RAV4 Prime XSE further with premium sound with dynamic navigation and JBL speakers, perforated and ventilated SofTex front seats, RAV4 first front display, heated rear seat SofTex, heated steering wheel, panoramic rear view mirror, digital seat, memory driver, 4-way electric passenger seat, 5-door SmartKey system, kick-back tailgate, Bird's Eye View monitor and yes, more
How is it done? Toyota hybrids have been showing high performance for years with low fuel consumption, and now the 2021 RAV4 Prime is one of the most powerful cases. The RAV4 Prime uses a differently tuned version of the RAV4 Hybrid gasoline engine with the 2.5-liter Atkinson four-cylinder engine. It produces the same projected 176 hp as in the case of a hybrid drive, but in conjunction with electric motors, the overall system performance equals 302 hp. In the passenger compartment of the RAV4 Prime, the larger lithium-ion battery is not compromised as it is mounted under the floor. The mounting position also gives the RAV4 Prime a low center of gravity and greater driving stability. The improved HVAC system with the RAV4 Prime heat pump, based on the Prius Prime system and adapted to suit the RAV4 Prime, contributes to increasing the EV range as energy consumption to control the cab temperature can significantly reduce the range of EV driving.
The RAV4 Prime electrified traction uses the same version of the electronic all-wheel drive (AWD) as the RAV4 Hybrid. In both models, the rear wheels are driven by a separate rear-mounted electric motor if necessary, even proactively when starting and also in conditions with reduced traction. AWD also reduces understeer during cornering, increasing steering stability.
Off-Road AWD improves hill climb performance. The wire-selectable Trail mode allows you to unwind by braking the rotating wheel and sending torque to the ground wheel. With gearshift levers available, the driver can “shift downshift” for increased regenerative braking in parts, which promotes greater control, for example when driving in hilly areas.
As with the RAV4 Hybrid, the innovative Predictive Efficient Drive functions as an invisible "hyper-miler" passenger. Using the available Predictive Efficient Drive navigation system, it basically reads the way and learns driver patterns to optimize hybrid charging and discharging based on driving conditions. The system collects vehicle driving data and “remembers” road features such as hills and traffic lights, and adjusts the drivetrain hybrid operation to maximize efficiency.
All Toyota RAV4 models are equipped with Toyota's standard safety fuse (TSS 2.0), which groups a long list of technologies and active safety capabilities: • Pedestrian Detection System (PCS w / PD) • Dynamic full-range radar cruise control ( DRCC) • Lane departure warning with steering assist (LDA w / SA)) • Automatic high beam (AHB) • Lane tracking assistant (LTA) • Roadside Assist (RSA)
XSE add-on package adds braking Rear Transverse Traffic (RCTB) and Front and Rear Parking Assist with Auto Brake (PA w / AB). Since the model year 2020, each Toyota Hybrid Battery warranty has increased from 8 years or 100,000 miles to 10 years from the original date of first use or 150,000 miles, whichever comes first.
