How much can a 2019 Toyota RAV4 tow? The answer to this question depends on the configuration that you select for your Jupiter and Port Saint Lucie drives.

Most of the RAV4 trims can handle up to 1,500 pounds. Hybrid models, which benefit from the inclusion of an electric motor, can handle up to 1,750 pounds. Those who’d like to maximize their capability can select the new-and-improved RAV4 Adventure trim, which easily handles up to 3,500 pounds when outfitted properly.

Choosing the Right Powertrain

All 2019 Toyota RAV4 configurations include a 2.5-Liter Dynamic Force 4-Cylinder engine with Dual Injection and Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i). This compact yet powerful setup delivers 203 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. Hybrid models, of course, also benefit from the inclusion of an electric motor, which increases total system horsepower to 219.

Although all RAV4 models include the same engine, your drivetrain options will vary depending on which trim you choose. All-wheel drive is available across the board, but those who want to maximize their capability should select the Adventure trim, which offers Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive, standard.
