    Toyota was tired of the Murano kicking its ass in the UAV market. :mamoru:

    Conversely, you can buy 4 cylinder Muranos outside North America. :o

    Not in terms of style. The RAV4 is the better looking of the pair. And the new RAV4 is about as big as the Highlander anyway.

    Yeah, Toyota tends to trip over itself with some of their vehicles.
    Land Cruiser and Sequioa, what's the point?
    Now Rav4 and the Highlander.. :hsugh:

    About friggin time. I vowed to never buy a RAV$ or a CRV since they have small weak engines... I figure, what's the point.

    They will offer it the first year, and then yank it because of low demand.
