2019 Toyota RAV4 Engine Specifications and Performance Equipment
The new generation of the Toyota RAV4 has seen an overhaul in its design, technology, safety, and performance. We’ve already told you of some of the updates and upgrades you can expect to find in this model. Today, we’re going to go over some of the finer specifications of the 2019 Toyota RAV4 engine specifications and performance equipment.
With the 2019 Toyota RAV4, drivers will be able to choose between two powertrain options. These include the Dynamic Force 2.5-liter inline-four-cylinder engine with VVT-iE mated to an 8-speed Direct-Shift Automatic Transmission, which motivates the five gas models and the Dynamic Force 2.5-liter inline-four-cylinder Toyota Hybrid System II (THS II) engine with Electronically-Controlled Continuously-Variable Transmission (ECVT), which powers the four hybrid models. With these two options, drivers will be privy to a large amount of power to take them through their busy days and power their road trip adventures.
Enhanced Performance Potential
The 2019 Toyota RAV4 gives drivers the ability to upgrade their performance equipment with the addition of AWD. The RAV4 offers three different choices for AWD systems. Two are carry-overs from the previous model year and one is an entirely new technology that further enhanced handling and even can help to improve fuel economy. The all-new AWD system the Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive with Rear Driveline Disconnect, the AWD-i system available on hybrid grades, and the (non-Dynamic Torque Vectoring) AWD system available on gasoline grades are great options with which drivers can increase their handling power.
The new AWD system, the Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive with Rear Driveline Disconnect can send 50 percent of engine torque to the rear wheels and distribute it to the left or right rear wheel for improved handling. This AWD system can also adapt power to conserve fuel and increase efficiency, depending upon the driving conditions at the time. This new system helps to improve traction but does not do so at the expense of fuel economy, unlike other AWD systems.
