2019 Toyota RAV4 Technology, Features and Engine Specs

When you slide into the driver’s seat of the 2019 Toyota RAV4, you will enjoy next-level performance on the road or the trail. Next-generation Toyota RAV4 models will feature a 2.5-liter four-cylinder Dynamic Force Engine that gets paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission – a powertrain that makes 203 horsepower and 32 mpg on the highway in the 2018 Toyota Camry. Drivers focused on fuel economy can opt for a Toyota Hybrid System II that employs a 2.5-liter Dynamic Force Engine with dual electric motors and a Continuously Variable Transmission.

An element that will set the 2019 Toyota RAV4 apart from the previous generation and the rest of the segment is a rugged all-wheel drive system. Gas-powered Toyota RAV4 editions are available with the Toyota-first Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive system with Rear Driveline Disconnect. With this system in place, up to 50 percent of torque can be distributed to the rear wheels and can be directed to the right or left wheels to improve traction. Rear Driveline Disconnect is an asset on the highway that will allow for front-wheel drive performance to improve fuel economy. Multi-Terrain Select is standard for all all-wheel drive Toyota RAV4 models to improve off-road capabilities.

Inside the 2019 Toyota RAV4, you will discover a smorgasbord of next-generation technology and features that upgrade comfort, connectivity, convenience and safety. All Toyota RAV4 models will feature Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 that employs a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams, Lane Tracing Assist and Road Sign Assist. Toyota Entune™ 3.0 sets the technology bar high with a standard 7-inch touchscreen display, Amazon Alexa capabilities, Apple CarPlay and onboard Wi-Fi.
