2022 Toyota Rav4 in Water

When equipped with Torque Vectoring AWD, the Toyota RAV4 towing capacity reaches up to 3,500 pounds. These are some striking specs for a compact SUV! While the RAV4 is a family-friendly vehicle that you can use in your daily drives around Tampa, you can go on roadtrips and outdoors adventures as well! Discover more about this SUV’s capabilities below before scheduling your test drive at Wesley Chapel Toyota.

2022 Toyota RAV4 Engine Options

Two Toyota RAV4 trims—the Adventure and TRD Off-Road—can be upgraded with Dynamic Torque Vectoring all-wheel drive to achieve the maximum RAV4 towing capacity of 3,500 pounds. If you want a balance of power and fuel efficiency instead, you’ll want to see the capacity in the Hybrid SE model. See the 2022 Toyota RAV4 towing capacity by trim here: 

2.5L 4-Cylinder Engine

  • Towing Capacity with Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD – Up to 3,500 pounds
  • Payload Capacity with Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD – Up to 1,025 pounds
  • Towing Capacity with FWD – Up to 1,025 pounds
  • Payload Capacity with FWD – 1,100 to 1,230 pounds depending on configuration 

ECVT 2.5L Dynamic Force 4-Cylinder Engine

  • Towing Capacity – Up to 1,750 pounds
  • Payload Capacity – 1,140 pounds

The Hybrid SE’s Electronically Controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT) saves fuel by adapting to your driving style and the terrain under your tires. By tapering smoothly between speed settings, this transmission matches engine output with conditions moment-to-moment to maximize efficiency at all times regardless of where you’re heading in Lakeland.

Toyota RAV4 Performance Features

While front-wheel drive is standard, you can get the available all-wheel drive for better traction in off-road situations (or on troublesome road surfaces). Higher trim levels, such as the RAV4 Adventure and the TRD Off-Road, come with dynamic torque vectoring all-wheel drive (TV-AWD) with rear driveline disconnect. Plus, all trims allow for customizable performance with switchable Sport, ECO, and Normal drive modes. Other RAV4 performance features include:

  • Active Cornering Assist
  • Mud and Sand, Rock and Dirt, and Snow modes on higher trims
  • 8.4 to 8.5 inches of ground clearance 
  • Independent MacPherson strut front suspension with stabilizer bar
  • Trailing wishbone-style multi-link rear suspension
  • Power-assisted ventilated 12.0-inch front disc brakes
  • Ventilated 11.1-inch rear disc brakes with Star Safety System™
  • Direct Shift eight-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission 

Thanks to all of these features, you’ll be able to drive smoothly in the St. Pete area no matter how the conditions are!
