    My grandparents just got a now 2011 Rav4 and said that when talking to the dealer they said that the V6 rav4 is the fastest stock vehicle toyota makes right now. Faster than the celicas and XR's, due to engine size and weight.

    i always thought of the Rav4's as a joke to toyota.
    never liked anything about them, and one was being that they had no power. but could be proven wrong now.

    but ex. my friend had i think a 98 rav and to go up a hill he always had to make sure the AC was off and nothing else was using power or else it would only barely make it up haha

    It could be the fastest in the world but it still will be a rav4.

    What's a Celica have to do with anything if you're saying it's the fastest vehicle they make right now they haven't made Celicas in several years. Also I think a Camry V6 is faster.

    Although the celica isnt in production this year, its Toyota's feature "sports" car, so I would assume that those would be the fastest.
    so i guess it doesnt have to do with anything

    pretty sure the TT supra would have beat the celica....and the rav 4 at that. 14.7 outa the rav 4 is impressive though. I think thats what a 2wd tundra is supposed to do though.

    Well, since they don't MAKE the Celica anymore, and Toyota also stopped production of the MR-2 in 2005, I might believe it. I'm assuming he's disregarding the Scion tC.

    It's pretty sad how Toyota has completely dropped out of the sports car market.

    That being said...is the Rav4 still faster than the Corolla S? That would be REALLY sad.

    My wife has a Rav4 and loves it. I have driven it and it is not a bad vehicle. Performs quite nicely.

    My sister has a Rav4 and she wouldn't trade it for anything. Not exactly my cup of tea but she couldn't be happier. I think she may even love her Rav4 more than I love my truck, if that's possible.
