    IIRC, the V6 rav 4 is the fastest stock vehicle toyota offers under the toyota brand name :anonymous:

    kona: yeah i heard the previous gen ravs with the v6 was quick. didnt know it was the fastest. i personally wouldve pegged the 3.5 camry to be lol. these new ravs arent fast, they dont even come with a v6 option. it is nice though, atleast interior wise. the outside looks...take a bit of getting used to lol.

    kukini: i believe the base and xle are significantly cheaper. big island toyota does not have any awd versions anymore. the limited awd versions was right around 30k, little bit less. its good. i actually got it because i want my kids to be comfortable, the rear seats can recline, the leather-like softtex material is really good. i kinda like it as much as the leather in my wifes 2013 4runner. the limited also has premium sound, navigation, sunroof, smart key, and auto trunk. all ravs come with eco and sport mode. it changes the parameters of the transmission and other functions, depending on what mode youre using. sport also diverts power to rear axels if you have awd version. its nice.
