After teasing fans with a short video a few days ago, the Japanese automaker today unveiled the all-new, fourth-generation 2013 Toyota RAV4 at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Available in three trim levels (LE, XLE and Limited), the fully redesigned RAV4 offers bold new styling and a single powertrain option: a 2.5L four-cylinder engine rated at 176 horsepower. The V6 is no more.

The base model gets 17'' steel wheels, while the XLE stands out with 17'' alloy wheels. The top-of-the-line Limited model proudly rides on a set of 18s.

The interior of the 2013 Toyota RAV4 is all new as well. Highlights include soft-touch accents, driver-centric controls, and class-leading 73.4 cu. ft. of cargo room with the rear seats folded. In Limited trim, buyers can specify a Blind Spot Monitor system with Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

Pricing has yet to be announced for the 2013 Toyota RAV4, which will go on sale early next year.
