Get ready to turn heads around Poughkeepsie and wherever you go in the redesigned Toyota RAV4! Toyota designers and engineers really overhauled this already popular small SUV and turned it into a vehicle that’s more impressive than ever before. Even the great pictures you see on our site don’t give the new RAV4 all its justice, so make your way in from Newburgh to our Wappingers Falls dealership to see this redesigned model in person.
The RAV4’s redesign was extensive. Gone are the “cautious” looks of the former generation. The new RAV4 has a long hood, wide grille, and ample angles. It’s a model that can look extremely rugged or stylish, especially if you get the optional contrasting roof color. The inside is more upscale, and we love the touchscreen placement that sits high on the dash. Get a trim with ambient lighting and you’ll really have a few conversation starters to tease your passengers with once you pick them up in New Windsor; don’t be surprised if they copy you and buy or lease a new Toyota RAV4 of their own after riding in yours!
You might have already heard the exciting news that Apple CarPlay™ is now standard on select new Toyota models, including the 2019 RAV4, and you can choose to use that smartphone integration over Toyota’s Entune. Amazon’s Alexa is also come along for the ride.
The 2018 model had standard Toyota Safety Sense™ technology, which was appreciated and impressive, and the 2019 RAV4 gets the enhanced Toyota Safety Sense 2.0™ package standard. Along with the features before, you’ll also have road sign assist, road edge detection, and lane tracing assist!
The new RAV4 is a little bigger and wider than its predecessor, so to keep up with the new dimensions, Toyota engineers have upped the power source. Instead of the old 2.5L with 176 horsepower and 172 lb-ft torque, you’ll be able to get around East Fishkill with 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft torque at your command.
