2019 Toyota RAV4 vs. 2019 Chevy Equinox

The Toyota RAV4 has supplanted the Camry as the most popular vehicle in the country wearing the automaker's badge. For the new model year, Colonial Toyota customers are going to be getting a radically updated version of the high-performing, capable and well-equipped crossover SUV. A comparison of the 2019 Toyota RAV4 vs. 2019 Chevy Equinox will clearly illustrate the strides Toyota has made in this very competitive class of the automotive industry. When the 2019 RAV4 arrives at the Colonial Toyota showroom, will be equipped with upgraded powertrains that make more power and are more efficient as well as offering more advanced technology options. Customers can begin the pre-ordering process so they can be the first to have the 2019 Toyota RAV4 in their garage by calling 203-286-5500 to make an appointment with Colonial Toyota.
There should be no doubt that the 2019 Toyota RAV4 faces a very tough opponent in the latest version of the Chevy Equinox. As strong as previous RAV4 models have been, the Equinox has held a slight advantage in available technology. That advantage completely disappears in 2019. Toyota has made the Entune 3.0 infotainment system standard equipment across all trim grades. The new information hub not only controls the stereo and navigation options but it also now offers a high-speed mobile Wi-Fi hotspot. Both vehicles are compatible with the most popular suites of smartphone applications. Toyota takes that idea of device integration to the next level. Potential owners who also users of Amazon Alexa will be able to expand many of its features to the infotainment system equipped in the 2019 RAV4. Wireless smartphone charging is also an option.

Performance Specs

Final performance specs for the 2019 Toyota RAV4 have yet to be announced. However, in previous years the RAV4 has held a performance advantage over the Chevy Equinox. That existing lead looks like it will be extended for the 2019 model year. Currently available information from Chevy has not indicated that it will be changing the available powertrain for next year's Equinox. Toyota has introduced upgraded engines to several 2019 models that have shown marked performance increases. Additionally, the 2019 Toyota RAV4 is also available in a hybrid version, an option not available to Chevrolet customers.
