For an AWD V6 SUV fuel economy is very good and only uses 1 mpg more than the 4cyl model, while providing considerably more power. see full Toyota RAV4 review

Amazing for an SUV - First 2 weeks we had it, went on 2 trips over 200 miles each mostly highway. Got over 27 MPG. There are some 4 cyl CARS that do not get that, let alone an SUV. We are saving $50/month just on gas compared to the minivan we traded in see full Toyota RAV4 review
