2019 Toyota RAV4 MPG Ratings
The 2019 Toyota RAV4 has impressive fuel economy ratings, no matter if you opt for the front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive (AWD) model.

In order to maximize efficiency, you’ll want to take advantage of the vehicle’s ECO Mode. There are then two other drive modes to tailor the SUV’s performance even further. There’s Sport Mode, which will provide sharper acceleration for a more thrilling ride. Then there’s Normal Mode, which gives you that optimum blend of fuel economy and performance.
Toyota RAV4 Performance Specs
Not only is the 2019 RAV4 quite efficient, but it also:
- Rides smoothly.
- Handles with composure.
- Delivers great power and acceleration.
It comes with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that produces 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. The engine is then mated to a Direct Shift 8-speed Electronically Controlled Automatic Transmission. This transmission will shift power smoothly and efficiently, even up to highway speeds.
Additionally, the vehicle can tow up to 3,500 pounds, when properly equipped. If you’re going on vacation and want to bring along a watercraft or snowmobile, it’s easy to do so with this automobile.
High Capabilities in the 2019 RAV4
As we mentioned before, the Toyota RAV4 is available in all-wheel drive to help keep you stable on slick surfaces. With the Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive system, up to 50% of the SUV’s power is sent to the rear wheels for optimum traction. Then, when AWD isn’t needed, the Rear Driveline Disconnect will stop sending power to the rear to help boost fuel efficiency.
Furthermore, the AWD model comes standard with Multi-terrain Select to easily tackle any type of road.
You can choose among three modes for improved traction:
- Mud and Sand
- Rock and Dirt
When the system is activated, it can regulate wheelspin by automatically adjusting engine throttle and brakes. This is done before wheel slip occurs, helping you maximize performance on the road.
