The RAV4 is available with two engines, a 2.4-litre four-cylinder mated to a four-speed automated, and also a 3.5-litre V6 with a five-speed transmission.

A version with front-wheel drive is sold in the U.S., but all Canadian models utilize Toyota's "Energetic Torque Control" 4x4 system, which permits the car to switch over continually as well as flawlessly in between front- and four-wheel modes. A hands-on securing switch enables an optimum torque split of 55/45 between the front as well as back wheels, under rates of 40 km/h. All models feature vehicle stability control and grip control, while V6 versions add hill-start as well as downhill help control.

With the enhancement of the brand-new four-cylinder Sporting activity trim line, both engines come in Base, Sport or Limited arrangement.

Functions on the Base versions include 17-inch steel wheels, cooling, CD/MP3 stereo with auxillary jack, textile seats, 60/40 folding as well as reclining rear seats, power locks with keyless entry, power home windows, tilt and also telescopic wheel, flooring mats, cruise ship control, heated mirrors, roof shelf, privacy cover, soft tire cover, variable intermittent wipers with deicer, and periodic rear washer/wiper.

The Sporting activity models include 18-inch alloy wheels, costs towel seats, freight internet, privacy glass, power sunroof, colour-keyed fender flares, black headlamp surround as well as fog lamps.

The Minimal models add 17-inch alloy wheels, six-CD/MP3 stereo with auxilliary jack, dual-zone automated climate control, leather-wrapped wheel, footwell lamps, and also moulded tire cover.

Currently offering similar consultations with both engines, the RAV4 can be somewhat underpowered in its four-cylinder configuration; the V6 is a far better option, and not that much of a step up in rate. The 60/40 rear seat folds up totally to develop a flat travel luggage space, without needing to flip seat paddings or get rid of head restrictions, making it easy to transform to cargo stowage. In 2008, manufacturing is anticipated to move from Japan to a new area in Woodstock, Ontario.
