Just curious as to how long has the 2.4 L engine been in production before it was used in the 06 Rav.

how does the 06 feel as compared to the 01?? power wise??
Actually, it feel the same. The extra 5 HP seems to offset the extra weight. The handling of course is better in the Sport, but the torque feels the same.

it should be more powerful - around 14-15hp. Only "5hp" difference is due to the new SAE power measurment standard that lowered HP rating on new 2.4. Old 2.0 engine should have around 140-146hp according to new standard.

Which is why it feels the same, since new Rav is subsantially heavier than before...
