I wonder what the next gen RAV4 will be. Given its sales success I think it will be fully redesigned, not like the Camry. With the new 2 litre turbo it might even get a GR version and same real TRD package.

2024 is already the 7th year or production for this generation, which is one year longer than the last generation. I would kinda expect something new for 2025, but it seems like we would’ve heard something by now.

How far along is development of the new 1.5 and 2.0 engines? I was under the impression those are still a few years out.

We'd have seen something by now if they were coming as MY25. IMO, the Rav4 will lag the Camry by a year like it did in MY19. Figure the Highlander and the Sienna will be MY27.

I doubt it will given as much as a makeover as the transition to TGNA. Toyotas mantra is usually refining the platform with a mix of old and new powertrain depending how far the EOL the current suite of engines lie, new trim levels, and interior layout. The rav4s sell themselves, the less work required on toyotas ends, the better it is for the shareholders.

The 2.0 turbo engine was finished already. BestCar reported that the engine was ready before they could find a product to put it in, because of the plan to make the Celica a BEV. But plans have changed.

I think most of TMC products in the next 3-4 years will be major facelifts like the Camry, because right now it's unclear when the new emissions and safety regulations are put in place.
