2021 Toyota RAV4 in the woods

The Toyota RAV4 hybrid towing capacity is up to 3,500 pounds when equipped with all the bells and whistles. This gives you enough horsepower to tow a small boat for a day of sailing around Cincinnati. To reach the 3,500-pound towing capacity, you need the advanced Adventure trim, which provides a payload of up to 1,090 pounds. If you’re in the market for a hybrid and want some towing power, the 2021 Toyota RAV4 LE can tow up to 1,700 pounds with a payload of 1,210 pounds.

Engine and Performance Features of the Toyota RAV4

The RAV4 towing capacity is made possible through the 2.5L dynamic force four-cylinder with a DOHC 16-valve with d-4s injection and dual variable valve timing with intelligence providing up to 203 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque.

The RAV4 does not lack performance, as it has a front-wheel-drive standard, with a powerful all-wheel drive available as an option. If you opt for one of the higher trim levels, you will get the dynamic torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive, also known as TV-AWD, and includes rear driveline disconnect.
