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.

Performance Features of the Toyota RAV4

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. The RAV4 is equipped with Sport, ECO, and normal drives modes on every trim, allowing you to adjust to the Loveland roads accordingly. Some of the features in the RAV4 include:

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

The 2021 Toyota RAV4 towing capacity is also quite impressive in the hybrid version of the vehicle, towing up to 1,700 pounds. All hybrid models are equipped with a Direct Shift eight-speed Electronically Controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT). This combination provides ample power for any condition, as it produces 219 net system hp and gets an EPA estimated 41 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway.
