2019 Toyota RAV4 Ground Clearance: 8.4 inches.
2019 RAV4 Ground Clearance
The ground clearance for the 2019 Toyota RAV4 varies by trim level. For example, the base trim level, as well as the XLE, have a ground clearance of 8.4 inches.
Switch to any of the hybrid trim levels (LE, XLE, XSE, and Limited), and you get a ground clearance of 8.1 inches.
Finally, you have the non-hybrid XLE Premium, Adventure, and Limited trims. These three models have the highest ground clearance at 8.6 inches.
So, what’s the benefit of having such a high ground clearance? It lets you easily handle off-road trails and pathways. You can take on even the rockiest terrain without damaging the underside of your SUV. Plus, it gives you a better view of what’s around you for easier navigation.
While the 2019 RAV4 ground clearance is impressive, that’s not the only thing that contributes to the vehicle’s off-roading abilities.
The SUV is available with Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive (TV-AWD). Up to 50% of power is sent to the rear wheels when needed for maximum traction on the road. Then, Rear Driveline Disconnect will stop sending power when it isn’t necessary in order to boost fuel efficiency.
If your version of the RAV4 comes in TV-AWD, then it’ll also have Multi-terrain Select. Choose between four modes for improved traction:
- Mud & Sand
- Rock & Dirt
The system can sense slippage and will automatically adjust the brakes and engine throttle. As a result, you can maximize driving performance on all types of terrain.
General Performance Specs
The Toyota RAV4 also fares well when traveling on smooth city streets and open highways.
The SUV comes with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that delivers 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. This kind of power means that the vehicle can easily handle just about any driving scenario.
Additionally, the RAV4 can handle being on the road for hours on end due to its impressive fuel economy ratings. You get an EPA-estimated 26 city/35 highway MPG with the standard model, while hybrid versions achieve an EPA-estimated 41 city/38 highway MPG.* No matter what, you’ll get to go on all kinds of adventures before needing to stop and refuel.
You also get to enjoy a drive that suits your mood. With three modes to choose from (Sport, ECO, and Normal), you can have a ride that’s all about athleticism, efficiency, or a nice mix of both.
