High Capabilities in the 2020 RAV4

As we mentioned before, the Toyota RAV4 is available in all-wheel drive to help keep you stable on slick surfaces. With the optional 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 four modes for improved traction:

  • MUD & SAND
  • SNOW

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.
