I googled and found a new(er) artitcle from trucktrend.com, 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...
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"

2012 Sport V6 Classic Silver no option
1999 Lexus RX300 Pearl White base gone
1972 Corolla 1200 Yellow 4 speed manual long gone
Others too many to mention!
