What Kind of Engine does the 2019 RAV4 have?
The 2019 RAV4 has the new Dynamic Force 2.5L inline-four engine, with an eight-speed Direct-Shift Automatic Transmission on all five gas models. The four hybrid models – that’s right, there’s a new RAV4 hybrid model – come standard with the Dynamic Force 2.5L inline-four Toyota Hybrid System II with Electronically-Controlled Continuously Variable Transmissions.
The AWD-equipped Limited and Adventure gas models also come standard with a Toyota first: Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive with Rear Driveline Disconnect. This new feature directs up to 50 percent of the engine torque to the rear wheels, and distributes it as necessary for improved handling in AWD. For the trips to Philadelphia, when fuel economy is more important, the Rear Driveline Disconnect transmits the driving force to the front wheels alone. This significant reduces energy loss, improves fuel efficiency, and reduces vibration, making for a smoother ride. The all-new 2019 RAV4 also features Multi Terrain Select, allowing for maximum traction in the snow during the harsh Pennsylvania winters, and any other road condition.
Does the 2019 RAV4 come as a Hybrid Model?
When you hear Toyota and hybrid together, your mind usually jumps to the Prius, Toyota’s flagship hybrid. But now, Toyota is introducing an all-new look for a hybrid that’s fuel efficient, sporty, quick, and powerful; not to mention available as an SUV model.
When the new 2019 RAV4s are released this winter, there will be a new hybrid model, the XSE Hybrid, the top-end hybrid of the RAV4 lineup. The XSE Hybrid is the “no compromise” model, with its enhanced power and acceleration paired with its sport-tuned suspension. It’s built to do everything that your typical RAV4 can do, but it’s also leading its class in fuel efficiency. It’s easy to see why its the quickest and best-handling RAV4 in the lineup, not to mention that it’s made for anything that life throws your way.
What New Technology Features come with the 2019 RAV4?
The most obvious exterior change to the 2019 RAV4 are the relocated side-mirrors, now positioned on the door for increased forward visibility. Side and rear-diagonal visibility, as well as ground clearance, are also increased with the all-new design of the RAV4.
But it’s the interior where you will really benefit from the redesign. The cabin size has increased, making it more comfortable for you and your family to take long camping trips to the mountains. Every RAV4 also comes standard with Entune 3.0, which includes WiFi Connect powered by Verizon, hands-free access to Amazon Alexa, Apple CarPlay compatibility, and a 7-in. touchscreen.
There are also a variety of other styling, comfort, and technology upgrades offered on different models. Features such as Qi-compatible wireless charging, a panoramic moonroof, Digital Display Rearview Mirror, and heated rear seats make for an improved driving experience.
What New Safety Features are available with the 2019 RAV4?
Toyota has always been at the forefront of safety innovations, and the all-new RAV4 is no exception to that. The 2019 RAV4 comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0. TSS 2.0 is the second generation update of a suite of safety features that drivers everywhere appreciate. TSS 2.0 comes with many of the already beloved safety features. It also introduces two new technologies to help keep you and your family safe when driving around York. Lane Tracing Assist, for freeway and highway use only, which identifies the center of the lane to provide steering assistance. And Road Sign Assist, which allows alerts to be displayed on the Multi-Informational Display for certain signs.
The 2019 RAV4 also offers optional safety technologies, such as Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Bird’s Eye View Camera, and Intelligent Clearance Sonar.
