Toyota has confirmed plans for the world premiere of an all-new, fourth-generation 2013 RAV4 crossover utility at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show on November 28.

The company has revealed no other details except the rhetoric that, "The 2013 RAV4 is a new generation rewriting the rules of style, embodying sophistication and strength (and) a dynamism that adapts to the changing pace of life."

The RAV4 was introduced in Japan in 1994 and arrived in North America in 1996. In 2000, it was replaced by a second-generation model in 2000 and the current, third-generation version has been around since 2006, with a refresh in 2008.

RAV4s have been built exclusively within North America by Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada (TMMC), in Woodstock, Ontario, since 2009.
