2021 Toyota RAV4 in the woods

Looking for a compact SUV you can rely on for your Palm Beach County towing jobs and long family vacations across Florida? Then you’ll absolutely love the 2021 Toyota RAV! Take a look at the RAV4 towing highlights:

  • The standard Toyota RAV4 towing capacity reaches up to 3,500 pounds when properly outfitted, so you can haul your modest camper or fishing boat with ease. 
  • The Adventure trim also offers a Toyota RAV4 towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds and a payload capacity of 1,090 pounds, so shoppers who want to explore everything this lineup has to offer can still access the towing power they need. 
  • However, eco-friendly drivers should keep in mind that the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid LE towing capacity maxes out at 1,700 pounds and only has a payload capacity of up to 1,210 pounds. Nevertheless, what this hybrid trim level lacks in towing power, it more than makes up for in fuel efficiency.
