RAV4 V6 one of the fastest Toyota vehicles?

Dealer said this was the fastest Toyota. After the sale, so I don't think he was TRYING to blow smoke.
Anyone have any factual data on this? Thanks.

Camry with the same engine should be faster.

Camry V-6 0-60 6.0 seconds
RAV4 V-6 0-60 6.4 seconds

Not THE fastest but pretty darn close!

Old Supra's were down in the 4-5 range.. wish they still made those!

Older MR2 turbos were also slightly faster at about 6 seconds

This is a good site with 0-60 times and very interesting

How about a 2012 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 0-60 mph 3.3 Quarter Mile 11.4 Oh My...



My 2010 V6 Sport is pretty amazing.. I feel like I'm in high school again!

From the link my RAV4 is quicker off the line than my 1968 Barracuda was altho the big thirsty V8 would have caught up at the quarter.

2006 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4WD (V6) 0-60 mph 6.2 Quarter mile 14.7
1968 Plymouth Barracuda 0-60 mph 7.0 Quarter mile 14.7

And to think we actually used to drive cars like my 69 HP
1983 Toyota Tercel 4WD Wagon 0-60 mph 16.4 Quarter mile 20.1
Two more cylinders & 200 more HP helps a lot!

2006 RAV4 V6 4WD Red Limited - wife's
2006 Accord V6 Hybrid - Dr. Dyno's - quick as the RAV but +8 mpg
2003 Odyssey V6 - handy people & cargo mover
1999 F-250 4X4 Diesel - snow plow, Bully Dog chip
2001 F-250 4X4 Diesel - truck camper, TS chip, 20' bike/trike dyno trailer
2004 Suzuki DRZ-400S Dual Sport

It's the pedal (or the handgrip) on the right!!

Do they have the old diesel Chevette in there? 51 hp, must have been quick!
