According to Car Connection, the RAV4 emerged as a "better-equipped and more value oriented" utility vehicle after its complete redesign last year. For 2014, it continues to deliver the comfort, cargo space and advanced features that today's drivers are looking for, and builds on an already successful equation by adding new features and a Technology package that offer enhanced value and appeal for shoppers. Local residents can find the 2014 Toyota RAV4 for sale in Phoenix, AZ now; available trim levels include the LE, XLE and Limited. An attractive new Blue Crush Metallic paint coat is also offered this year.
For 2014, XLE models receive chrome interior door handles and sunvisor extenders as standard equipment, while top-of-the-line Limited trims can be upgraded with a new Technology package that includes auto high beams, lane departure alert and a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert. All models are powered by a 2.5L naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine that produces 176 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque; the engine is paired with a six-speed transmission. Fuel economy is improved compared to the previous-generation SUV and features like an Eco mode help to further strengthen efficiency.
