Is the Toyota RAV4 All-Wheel Drive?

2019 toyota rav4 with trailer hitched

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 offers all-wheel drive in every trim, and with the high-end Adventure trim, it’s a standard feature. So, if you’re wondering whether all RAV4 models are AWD, the answer is that they can be! However, the particular Toyota all-wheel drive system that comes with your vehicle will vary depending on the trim that you select.

Toyota RAV4 AWD Systems

  • RAV4 LE, RAV4 XLE, and RAV4 XLE Premium models can all be equipped with basic All-Wheel Drive (AWD). Even this system improves handling and performance in significant ways, giving you the confidence you’ll need to travel through rain and snow.
  • Drivers who opt for the Toyota RAV4 Adventure or Limited trims will be able to enjoy an even more capable Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive System (TV-AWD). This system is distinguished from the other because it can direct up to 50% of power to the rear wheels when needed. A rear driveline disconnect is also standard in these models.
  • The 2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid offers its own all-wheel drive system–Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive–and this one is standard, too! Unlike the other systems mentioned, it delivers additional power and handling, whenever needed, using the built-in electric motor.

We’ve focused on the 2019 Toyota RAV4 throughout this guide, but don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions about a different model year.

Be Ready for Anything Behind the Wheel: RAV4 Performance Features

Of course, the available RAV4 all-wheel drive systems aren’t the only technologies that make this crossover so fun-to-drive. For improved capability and performance, the following features are either standard or optional:

  • Multi-Terrain Select – With AWD equipped, you can switch between Mud & Sand, Rock & Dirt, and Normal terrain settings.
  • Drive Modes – Switch between Normal, Sport, and ECO driving modes with the press of a button. On Hybrid models, an additional EV mode has been included.
  • Engine and Transmission – All gas-powered versions of the RAV4 have been equipped with a Dynamic Force 2.5L inline-4 engine and a Direct-Shift 8-Speed Automatic Transmission.

In its standard configuration, the Toyota RAV4 can tow 1,500 pounds, but those who opt for the Adventure trim will be able to handle up to 3,500!
