What’s New for the 2019 RAV4?

What’s New for the 2019 RAV4?

Pictured above is the 2019 Toyota RAV4 with available options. 

If you’ve been watching the RAV4 throughout the years, you may have noticed a substantial shift between the 2018 and 2019 models. Well, you’re not wrong! Toyota’s newest rendition of the RAV4 reimagines what a compact crossover can do and comes equipped with plenty of enticing features for modern drivers to enjoy. To see it for yourself, drop by Price Toyota at 168 DuPont Hwy in New Castle, DE.

Performance

If you thought the RAV4’s changes only went skin deep, you’ll be surprised to hear that the 2019 edition of this exciting SUV packs an even more powerful engine than before. The 2019 RAV4 is equipped with a 2.5L Dynamic Force 4-cylinder powertrain that cranks out an inspiring 203 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque. On top of that, the newest RAV4 comes paired to a Direct-Shift 8-speed automatic transmission system that will effortlessly cycle through your gears as you’re picking up speed on the highway. For comparison, the 2018 version came with a 6-speed automatic transmission and a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that pumped out 176 horsepower and 172 lb.-ft. of torque.

Safety

Although you can rest easy knowing you and all of your passengers are protected when you’re inside any Toyota vehicle, the 2019 RAV4 offers some of the latest technologies you just won’t find in older models. For instance, it comes with the Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.01 system that features a couple innovations not included in the 2018 RAV4’s Toyota Safety Sense™ P1 system. As an example, with the Road Sign Assist system2 you’ll have an easier time keeping track of the speed limit since the 2019 RAV4 can recognize certain signs and provide that information on the display screen. Additionally, the Downhill Assist Control system3 is an available feature on the 2019 RAV4 that you won’t find on the older edition. With it, you’ll have greater control of your vehicle when you’re going down steep descents.

Technology

When it comes to the 2019 RAV4, improved safety and performance capabilities are just the start. Inside, you’ll find a larger 7.0-inch touchscreen when compared to the 6.1-inch touchscreen of the 2018 model. That means you’ll have an easier time accessing your apps and radio stations than ever before. Moreover, you won’t have to worry about using up all your phone data when you’re out on the road since the 2019 RAV4 comes standard with Wi-Fi Connect4. With this technology, you can connect up to five devices and easily stay up-to-date on work emails. Last but not least, the 2019 version of the RAV4 comes available with Qi-compatible wireless charging5, so you can keep your phone at full-battery without the need for cables.

If you were wondering what’s new for the 2019 RAV4, we at Price Toyota hope that this has helped. To get the full scoop on Toyota’s latest compact crossover, swing by our lot and speak with a friendly member of our team!

I purchased a great low mileage used 2010 Camry from Charlie Sheets, who was very helpful throughout the process. Traded in my 2007 Tacoma, which was also a great vehicle, and was purchased from Price about 10 years ago. Sales and service at this site are both excellent.

Overall, a great experience. The process was smooth at Price Toyota. Mr. Tim Li did a great job. Ask for Tim if you are to visit the dealership. Pulse is an excellent (dealer-installed) safety feature that Toyota should add it to all vehicles as standard. A few other comments for improvement: 1) We were offered an extended warranty at the time of signing the purchase documents that gave us no time to evaluate the cost-benefit and we felt some pressure to make a quick decision. Although we didn't mind purchasing an extended warranty, it would be nice if it was introduced to us during the sales negotiation so we could take the additional cost into consideration. 2) The email offer that I received did not mention that the price included a $500 special discount with financing, where I had planned to pay in full. 3) This is my 9th vehicle or the 6th with Toyota. In the past, I had to pay extra if I wanted the carpets. This time, I decided to get the all-weather mats. Surprisingly, besides paying for the cost for the all-weather mats, I had to pay for the carpets as well even though I didn't want it. Now I have a set of carpets that I don't need. Does it make sense?

Raeshel Egan, the Assistant Service Manager, greeted me on arrival in the service area and was most personable and professional, I was scheduled for the Camry's 15,000 mile service, She thoroughly explained what would be done and confirmed that I would wait. She updated me on the progress and also informed me of rodent droppings on the engine cover and even recommended spraying peppermint oil there to deter rodent nesting. That was much appreciated and not expected. She showed me the invoice indicating the work done and when I should bring the car in for the 20,000 mile service. She was OUTSTANDING!

We had out first new car check up this week. Everyone was friendly and all went smoothly. A good experience. Neil Gibson, our buyer rep. should be given cudos. We thought we had a problem and he bent over backwards to help us. Come to find out it was our problem, not his, but he was kind and patient . I've called him a couple of times about other things and he always responds promptly. A good man who I would recommend to anyone.

Excellent service and follow up. My salesman Nick Tarabicos made the sale extremely easy in that we did everything without my having to go to the dealership. He went as far as delivering my new vehicle to my home and taking my previous vehicle back. I have nothing but the best opinion of Nick and the Price team.

I went in for my first periodic maintenance. It was so easy and so quick! Other dealerships I've dealt with in the area have acted like my appointment was just a drop-off time, and have wanted me to leave and come back, and have taken hours to change the oil and rotate the tires. Not Price. I was in and out with full oil change, tire rotation, multi-point inspection in 25 minutes, and they even buffed out some scuffs on the side of my truck. Marisa gave excellent customer service!

Great dealership. The place was like family. Great doing business and talking with the employees. I purchased a 2020 Corolla SE and Nikolaos Tarabicos helped me every step of the way. Just an all around awesome experience. Nik was great throughout the entire process. He had the knowledge about the particular vehicle I was interested in and was able to answer every question I had. Nik was also very patient which is a very big plus. I would definitely do business here again and would highly recommend this dealership to anyone. On a side note I also had my mother come in and speak with Nik in regards to a new vehicle. Thanks again Nik from me and my mother for all the help.

Nic Tarabicos was thee absolute best sales rep I have worked with. It was a long and difficult process for him to find me the vehicle with all the specs. I wanted and at the price point I wanted (which he ended up saving me an additional $150) but he was patient and beyond helpful. And ultimately he ended up finding me a vehicle that met my stipulations which was not an easy feat. His customer service, patience and willingness to go the extra mile to help meet my needs was wonderful. Great experience overall I will be seeing him again in another few years for another 4Runner

I recently had my 6th month inspection after moving to Delaware and it was such a surprise how quickly it was performed and how nice the surroundings were. I want to commend Marissa for her pleasant and efficient handling of our questions. My wife and I are discussing getting a second car in the near future and I know where we will be shopping.

Appointment was confirmed and oil change was done in the time allotted.But a week ago I had my second blowout on the sidewall. This time with 29,000 miles on a guarantee of a tire that should give you 50,000 miles. I took the tire to Price and since I purchased the road guarantee and they replaced the tire. So far I ve had two blowouts on the sidewalls and one tire wore unevenly which was blamed on our driving according to the Price service people. The manufacturer was Firestone. I ve never had any luck with Firestone with the whole set was recalled in early 2000. I ve driven Toyota’s for the last 20 years and have purchased 3 cars from Price over that period of time. Price has responded and replaced 2 of the tires. But if you like to keep a set on your car that s worn evenly and gives you a smooth ride. The one tire that wasn’t replaced is causing a rough ride because of the unevenness on the tire edge. Why doesn’t Price replace this defective tire when obviously it s causing a major problem when traveling on a interstate. Price did replace the sidewall blowouts but fell short on replacement of the cut tire. The performance of the 3 of 4 tires has been less than satisfactory. I did not miss any of my warranteed appointments and Price checked the tires every time and did not recommend any further service. We have been very disappointed with the ride we presently have experienced.

The service dept was very quick on getting my Toyota recall for the passenger side air bag inflator accomplished. They scheduled me quickly. I dropped the truck off on Sunday night and had it back by noon Monday.They did a good job, actually brought the truck inside for my pickup ( it was raining outside). Price notified me of a couple of items from their multi-point checks and included the cost of each item. I'm delaying fixing these items until January. All people I interfaced with were very courteous and helpful. Overall it was an excellent experience.

Over the years, I have purchased several new vehicles from Price Toyota and once again my experience was wonderful. Every employee that I dealt with was informative, helpful, and very professional. The salesman, Oscar Rivera, was extraordinary as usual. He is a true professional; knows his product, and takes whatever time necessary to make sure I understood everything from the vehicle options to all of the paperwork involved with the sales process. I drove approximately 200 miles (round-trip) to purchase a vehicle at Price Toyota and will definitely do it again. Thank you Oscar and everyone else at Price Toyota.
