2013 Toyota RAV4 teased, debuts in Los Angeles [video]

Promises to have sophistication and strength

Toyota has released the first teaser video of the 2013 RAV4, ahead of its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 28th.

Designed to make you "feel good," the crossover promises to rewrite the rules of style by "embodying sophistication and strength." The video only gives us a few glimpses of the model but it appears to have a Camry-inspired front fascia with a slender grille and angular headlights.

Additional information is limited, but the model is expected to be slightly larger than its predecessor and ride on an updated version of its current platform.

Engine options could carryover, so expect choices to include a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 178 bhp (133 kW) and a 3.5-liter V6 with 268 bhp (200 kW). Both will likely be connected to a new six-speed automatic transmission which should improve fuel efficiency and performance. Front-wheel drive will be standard, but all-wheel will be optional.

Mitsubishi Outlander is an Excellent product too, plus excellent warranty, and better MPG, in my state Mitsubishi sold 5 times more than Hynday and Toyota and on the road there are more Hyndays damaged, Americans consider Mitsubihi over Koreans brands. Don't hears the fan boys(kids) only wants the faster cars.

Looks like a cross between the Acura RDX and Ford Escape.
