It is pretty manly for a chick car.

I test drove the 6 cylinder, and that was crazy fast. I wanted my wife to get one, but she didn't like the spare tire on the back, so we ended up getting a CR-V.

The CR-V is really well priced and we've been very happy with ours. I like the interior more than the Rav4.

We use to have a CRV for a extra work car. Then my office traded that in and got a Rav4. In my opion the CRV isnt woth the gas in it. We use to have to push it out of the parking spot when we got a few inches of snow. Now with the Rav4 its not a problem. If head out for a smaller job and dont need the space i request the Rav4 instead of our work vans, It handles great to. I am use to trucks and bigger vans. So its nice to drive a smaller vehicle once in a while. I havent been in a car in probably 2 or 3 years maybe more. The Rav4 is the closest thing.

One of my male co-workers drives it. I've seen girlier vehicles before. Like I said before, I don't care what it looks like because of how quick they are.

I heard that with every purchase you get a years supply of Midol ? It's way too girly. Maybe you could have a garder from the R V mirror, or perhaps sport a giant rainbow in the back window.

I think it looks more feminie than masculine. But hey - opinions are like buttholes, right? Everyone's got one, and some stink.

My buddy is getting on in black but he's going to put a black brush guard on the front, put black wheels on it and tint the glass.... it'll give it a shot of testosterone.....

They're really nice and I've driven one. My wife drives an FJ Cruiser - we went around and tried everything - the Pilot, CR-V, Rav-4, Highlander, and when she saw the FJ she was DONE.

Just my opinion on the girliness question. Please don't take offense....

There is not a damn thing girlie about that 3.5L V6. My wife's 06' RAV4 Sport 4WD V6 can accelerate much faster than my Tacoma. The guy at the local dealership was ashamed to admit that he had been spanked by a RAV4 just like hers while he was driving a 5.7L Tundra.


That engine is awesome in whatever car you put it in...

The 2GR-FE is a 3.5 L (3456 cc) version. Bore remains at 94 mm but stroke is reduced to 83 mm. Reported output varies depending on the vehicle application, but is approximately 268 hp (200 kW) at 6200 rpm with 248 lbft (336 Nm) of torque at 4700 rpm on 87 octane (R+M/2) or 280hp and 260ft of torque using premium 91 octane. This version features Toyota's "dual-VVT-i", variable valve timing on both the intake and exhaust cams. Valves are driven by roller-follower rocker arms with low friction roller bearings, and a unique, concave cam lobe design to increase valve lift over the traditional shimless lifter type system of the 1GR-FE. This increases overall cylinder head height to accommodate the slightly taller roller rocker system. Moreover, the cylinder head is segmented into 3 parts: valve cover, camshaft sub-assembly housing, and cylinder head sub-assembly. As such, this valvetrain is used across all other GR engines with dual VVT-i.
