The 2017 Toyota RAV4 Should Be at the Top of Your Short List


If you’re looking for a well-equipped, versatile SUV, the 2017 Toyota RAV4 shouldn’t just be on your short list of must-see vehicles. It should be at the very top of your short list instead.

Like the 2017 Toyota Corolla and many other automobiles, the 2017 Toyota RAV4 is available in multiple trims. For gas-only models, these trims include the LE, XLE, SE, Limited and Platinum. For hybrid models, the available trims include the XLE and Limited.

Gas-only SUVs are powered by a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that produces 176 horsepower and 172 lb-ft of torque. This engine is mated with a standard six-speed automatic transmission. Hybrid models are equipped with the same engine, which is coupled with two electric motors. Hybrid trims have a continuously variable automatic transmission and standard all-wheel drive. Gas-only trims are available with either front- or all-wheel drive.

Every 2017 Toyota RAV4 has the Toyota Safety Sense P suite of safety and driver assistive features as standard equipment. This bundle includes automatic high beams, automatic emergency braking, a lane departure warning, and the Toyota brand’s Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.

When you visit our Toyota dealership near Scranton, PA, you’ll see that the comfort and convenience features your SUV will have depend on the trim you decide to buy or lease. The base trim comes with a rearview camera, a 6.1-inch display, the Entune infotainment system, Bluetooth connectivity, and a sound system that has six speakers, an auxiliary audio jack, and USB inputs.

If you get an XLE model, your SUV will have the same features that the LE trim has as well as a power moonroof, satellite and HD radio, dual-zone climate control, and French-style stitching on the front seats. If you step up to the SE model, your vehicle will also have a sport suspension, paddle shifters, and a rear cross-traffic alert.
