2019 Rav4 Towing
In its baseline configuration, the 2019 Toyota RAV4 towing capacity is 1,500 pounds. This brings it into line with other vehicles from its segment, which can tow about the same amount of weight. However, the story doesn’t end there. Each of the 2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid trims can tow up to 1,750 pounds, and those who upgrade with the new-and-improved Adventure trim will be able to handle a towing weight of up to 3,500 pounds!

Toyota RAV4 Engine Specs

Every 2019 Toyota RAV4 comes equipped with the same dependable 2.5-liter Dynamic Force 4-Cylinder engine, designed with DOHC 16-valve valvetrain, d-4s dual injection, and dual variable valve timing with intelligence (vvt-i). With this equipment under the hood, you’ll enjoy 203 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque.

Hybrid models include an additional electric motor which allows them to offer slightly more horsepower, torque, and towing power.

Toyota RAV4 Performance Features

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 engine certainly offers exceptional performance, but it’s not the only component that allows this compact SUV to fly head and shoulders above competitors. For starters, you’ll be able to activate Sport, ECO, and Normal drive modes no matter which trim level you choose! The RAV4 offers all-wheel drive as an option on every trim, and those who upgrade to the Adventure configuration will enjoy Dynamic Torque Vectoring capabilities that challengers simply can’t match.

Additional standard and available advantages include:

  • Direct Shift eight-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission
  • Mud and Sand, Rock and Dirt, and Snow modes on higher trims
  • 8.4 to 8.5 inches of ground clearance
