2017 RAV4 Ground Clearance

What is the Ride Height on Toyota’s RAV4?

2017 RAV4 Ground Clearance

Before taking your compact crossover on any adventures off-roading or through snow it is important to understand what it can handle. One way to discern this is through ground clearance. Ground clearance, sometimes referred to as ride height, is how much space is available between the flat level ground and the lowest part of a vehicle not including its tires. A high ground clearance is ideal for off-roading or trudging through snow but can affect things like the aerodynamics and precise handling on the road. The 2017 RAV4 ground clearance is 6.1 inches on the LE and XLE trims, 7 inches on the XLE Hybrid trim, and 6.5 inches on the SE trim. While this ground clearance won’t be appropriate for extreme adventures, it should do the trick for most casual outdoor outings. Read the rest of this entry >>

Certified Pre-Owned Toyota in Lexington, MA

What does Certified Pre-Owned Actually Mean?

Many car shoppers are aware of one downfall of buying a new car. As soon as you drive it off the lot, the new car significantly depreciates in value. For some, the advantages of buying new outweigh the added cost and depreciation factor. For others, a gently-used alternative makes more financial sense. A certified pre-owned vehicle is a great choice. Certified pre-owned vehicles are gently-used vehicles that, before resale, go through a certification process to make sure they meet and/or exceed high standards. Many times the vehicles that are returned to the dealer that fit the criteria for consideration have previously been leased. Read below to see even more about the certification process and the benefits of buying a certified pre-owned Toyota in Lexington, MA. Read the rest of this entry >>
