What’s New with the 2019 Toyota Rav4?
The standard gasoline engine powering the 2019 Toyota Rav4 is a Dynamic Force 2.5L Inline 4-Cylinder that works with an 8-Speed Direct-Shift Automatic Transmission for increased power and MPG. The 2019 Toyota Rav4 Hybrid receives the 2.5L Inline 4-Cylinder, the Toyota Hybrid System II and a Continuously Variable Transmission for optimal torque and fuel efficiency. All-new Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive (AWD) with Rear Driveline Disconnect provides 2019 Toyota Rav4 owners with the ability to take on the roughest roadways with complete confidence. Rear Driveline Disconnect allows for precise torque distribution for optimal handling through treacherous terrain and also uses the world’s first ratchet-type dog clutches to transfer power to the front wheels when AWD isn’t needed and thus helping to improve overall fuel economy. The 2019 Toyota Rav4 also features Multi-Terrain Select to maximize traction through snow, mud, sand, or rocks so nothing limits the adventure you can find in the 2018 Rav4.
On the interior, the 2019 Toyota Rav4 gets equipped with standard Entune 3.0 with Wi-Fi Connect, Amazon Alexa & Apple CarPlay Compatibility. Other awesome interior features of the 2019 Toyota Rav4 include a standard 7” Color Touchscreen Display, up to Five USB Ports, an optional QI Wireless Charging Tray, and an available 11-Speaker 800-Watt JBL Audio System.

All of these systems are in place to help prevent an accident from happening, but if a collision does occur the eight standard airbags are in place to protect all passengers.
