Toyota RAV4 Specs

Leading the way for the 2018 RAV4 is the standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, with a 6-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission and front-wheel drivetrain. This high-performing trio generates 176 horsepower and 172 lb-ft of torque, while providing an efficient EPA-estimated 23 city/30 highway MPG1.

The RAV4 also offers optional mechanical configurations for those who prioritize efficiency over power, or vice versa. For those looking for a fuel economy boost, you can opt for the RAV4’s available hybrid engine, which gets an impressive EPA-estimated 34 city/30 highway MPG1.

For those who want to take on the backroads with confidence and power, you’ll want to opt for the Adventure trim’s unique Tow Prep Package. This available package allows you to tow a whopping 3,500 pounds in the new RAV4-haul the family boat or camper with ease.

In the 2018 Toyota RAV4’s interior, you’ll have five spacious seats, as well as 38.4 cubic feet of cargo space to take advantage of, even with all five seats in place.
