2019 RAV4 Power and Handling
When you’re choosing an SUV, you’re probably looking for something that’s up for a challenge. That’s exactly what you’ll find with the 2019 Toyota RAV4.
At the heart of this car’s powertrain is the 2.5L I-4 engine that generates 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. This is paired with a Direct Shift 8-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with smooth, efficient shift points that keep your RAV4 at peak operation.
Front-wheel drive comes standard, but many local drivers like that available all-wheel drive (AWD) systems that help to provide a little extra support during wintertime driving. The available Multi-Terrain Select feature helps to further maximize handling capabilities, as well.
With this system, you can choose among drivetrain modes: Normal, Mud & Sand, Rock & Dirt, and Snow, to best suit your needs.
Toyota RAV4 Design
Versatility is the name of the game when it comes to the design of the Toyota RAV4. You’ll get your choice between eight solid exterior colors that help you put your best foot forward as you drive this SUV around town. Available exterior colors include:
Ruby Flare Pearl
Magnetic Gray Metallic
If you want to show a bit more flare, you can also decorate your RAV4 with an available two-tone color palette. You’ll have three to choose from here. All three have an Ice Edge-colored roof (a light gray color) and the following body color options:
Midnight Black Metallic
You can also design the interior to your liking with your choice between fabric seats or SofTex® leatherette. This leather-like seating surface gives you that luxurious feel while being easier to clean and more stain-resistant than genuine leather.
Interior color options include Black, Nutmeg, Light Gray, and Mocha. The Black and Mocha shades also have available orange accent stitching.
Safety Technology in the 2019 Toyota RAV4
We know that local drivers like to stay safe behind the wheel, so we’re happy to say that, like most 2019 Toyota models, the RAV4 comes standard with the Toyota Safety Sense™ P 2.0 Suite. This suite includes features like:

Sway Warning System
Automatic High Beams

This system includes low-light pedestrian detection and daytime Cyclist Detection, as well, which help you stay aware of any bicycle and foot traffic you may encounter along your route.
