Toyota RAV4 Towing Capacity

January 29th, 2020 by


The 2020 Toyota RAV4 makes everyday drives a true adventure— especially when you can tow all the gear you need to explore. How much can a Toyota RAV4 tow? The 2020 Toyota RAV4 has a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds available on two configurations. This capacity is enough to haul your trailer or smalling fishing boat around Lake Park and beyond. Read on below to discover what contributes to the spirited RAV4 towing capacity and more impressive performance features.

Toyota RAV4 Engine

The Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road and the Toyota RAV4 Adventure models can tow up to 3,500 pounds. In addition to the outstanding towing capacity, the 2.5-L Dynamic Force four-cylinder engine with DOHC 16-Valve and DVVT intelligence generates 203 hp @ 6600 rpm and 184 lb-ft of torque. All other Toyota RAV4 trim levels— excluding the hybrid options, can tow up to 1,500 pounds.

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Towing Capacity

The Toyota RAV4 also presents Palm Beach County car-buyers with four hybrid options so you can go further more efficiently and eco-consciously. The maximum towing capacity on all 2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid models— the LE Hybrid, the XLE Hybrid, the XSE Hybrid, and the Limited Hybrid— is 1,750. Impressively enough, the electronic-AWD 2.5L 4-cylinder hybrid performance provides drivers with even more towing strength than the other trim levels.
