maybe there will be3 a V6 in 2013
GOOGLE "2013 RAV4" - new stuff came out today - looks like pics and info got released before the auto show in LA on Wednesday - the new stuff is saying optional V6...

I googled and found a new(er) artitcle from, it says: "Toyota's Entry SUV Loses Signature Spare Carrier, V-6 Option

Read more: 2013 Toyota RAV4 Leaked Ahead of Los Angeles Debut - Truck Trend News"

I tak it to mean that both the spare tire carrier & V6 are gone.

A Car & Driver article from April suggests the V6 will remain.

It all makes me want to go get a 2012 V6 now.

yeah - I've seen several conflicting things - just have to wait til Wednesday- I'm not giving up hope til then. My 2007 RAV4 V6 was totaled last yr - I've been waiting for the 2013s to be released to buy the new design, but only want a V6 (I've been using one of my parents old cars)- if there is no V6, I'm getting a Acura RDX. That RAV4 V6 was amazing.

Today I've read more 'leaked' information that makes it sound like there will be a V6. I guess we will all know in a little less than 24 hrs.

I really hope the V6 survives. The new car looks great ... with a V6 and 6 speed auto ... I will definitely buy one.

No V6 means they lost at least one potential buyer...
Well, they made it look more like the Lexus RX series or the Acuara MDX - not a bad thing.
And then proceeded to cut its balls off by not offering the V6...:wall
I'll wait until they realize how stupid that move was.

They basically said, "If you want a V6, buy a Highlander!"

Yes, I heard the same thing. If I could afford the price or MPG of a Highlander, I would have bought one! Guess I'll have to keep our V6 for a while.

To quote Mike Myers in his funny retro style British secret agent movies (the name escapes me right now): "It lost its mojo"
