  Will The New Toyota RAV4 PHEV Offer 40-Plus Miles Of Electric Range? We long for a time when automakers will just divulge estimated range early on. Toyota has officially confirmed it will bring an all-new RAV4 Plug-in Hybrid SUV to market for the 2021 model year. The vehicle should prove quite popular, as long as it offers a reasonable amount of all-electric range. According to French-Canadian automotive website RPM, it will have battery range of 70 km, which equates to about 43 miles. Since Toyota didn't reveal this information or the specifics about the vehicle's battery size or charging speed, we're not quite sure how PRM came across the detail.

Mainstream SUVs aren't exactly known for their sporty attributes, but the likes of Ford, Jeep, and others all offer performance variants of their SUVs—and now Toyota is jumping on the bandwagon. The company is expanding the available trims on the Highlander to include XSE, a level which brings with it upgraded and sportier looks, as well as performance-tuned steering and suspension.

When we drove the Highlander last December, we thought it provided a “snooze-worthy driving experience.” The XSE trim, then, is an attempt to wake up the Highlander with a more athletic and aggressive stance that includes a significantly larger lower air intake and sharper-angled headlights. It also gains a chrome dual-tip exhaust.

That exhaust is more for aesthetics than anything else. The Highlander XSE is paired with the same 3.5-liter V-6 churning out 295 horsepower and 263 lb-ft of torque that comes on the standard Highlander. The XSE comes with the same eight-speed automatic transmission and is available with either front-wheel or all-wheel drive. Toyota claims that it has retuned the suspension with stiffer springs and dampers and the addition of a rear anti-roll bar; the steering is also said to provide sportier feel.
