When you’re shopping for your next family car there are a lot of things you should consider, such as performance specifications. To make the car-buying process easier for you we’ve put together an overview of the 2019 Toyota RAV4’s performance specs.
Every gasoline-powered RAV4 model comes equipped with the same powertrain – a new 2.5-litre four-cylinder Dynamic Force engine. Paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, this engine produces 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. When properly equipped, the RAV4 can tow up to 680.3 kilograms, while the Trail AWD trim will be able to tow up to 1,587.5 kilograms. That means you can easily head out on the open road with your gear for your next adventure, no matter what you need to take along with you.
If you’re looking for something even more eco-friendly, the RAV4 Hybrid model has the powertrain for you. This model is outfitted with a 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine, but it comes paired with Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive system. This powertrain has EV Mode and ECO Mode, giving you a total of 219 horsepower and a towing capacity of 793 kilograms when properly equipped.
Alberta has many different terrains, from mountain ranges to desert badlands, and more. If you want to take advantage of the great outdoors then the RAV4 will help you do just that. This crossover has an available active torque AWD system that uses advanced technology to shift from FWD to AWD when it detects wheel slippage.
The RAV4 also comes with Multi-Terrain Select to take on whatever Mother Nature throws its way. This system will let you choose between four modes to regulate your RAV4’s wheel spin, giving you the best traction possible. It covers terrains like mud, sand, rocks, and dirt, and comes standard on all AWD gasoline-powered trims.
