We've reached out to Toyota to confirm whether or not these photos are genuine. We'll update this post as soon as we hear back.
Word has it Toyota will abandon the V6 engine option in favor of a more efficient four-cylinder for 2014. Likewise, engineers have scrapped the old four-speed automatic transmission for a six-speed unit. Otherwise, details are scarce. Fortunately, we won't have to wait long to find our more. Expect to see the 2014 Toyota RAV4 be unveiled on November 28.
UPDATE: Toyota spokesperson Curt McAllister responded to our inquiries by saying, "I can't confirm or deny the validity of the photos."
