2019 Rav4 Information

Scheduled to arrive in winter of 2018, the all-new 2019 Toyota RAV4 will be ready to hit all the downtown hotspots or the out of town hot springs! This will be the fifth-generation for the vehicle that created the small sport utility segment. Toyota has listened to owners and dealers and that has lead to the RAV4 ranking as the number-one-selling vehicle in the Toyota lineup, as well as the best-selling non-pickup-truck in the country!

Designers kept in mind design elements of the Adventure and Refined to allow owners to up and go in the RAV4, no matter the time or place. An emphasis was placed on maximizing the presence of a small SUV while maintaining high levels of finesse inside and out. The 2019 RAV4 features a chiseled appearance thats the perfect combination of athleticism and charisma. Available 19-inch wheels help to add to a powerful stance thats ready to tackle any road, any time.

Ground clearance was increased by more than half an inch, yet RAV4 is also able to achieve improved aerodynamics. Its unibody chassis is 57% more rigid than the current 2018 model and with the incorporation of a multi-link rear suspension, drivers will find minimum interior noise and better ride comfort.  Designers also relocated the side mirrors to provide better forward visibility and side vision is increased thanks to a lowered belt line and the redesigned and enlarged rear-quarter glass. 

The 2019 Rav4 will be powered by two engine options

  • Regular gas engine models will feature the Dynamic Force 2.5-liter inline-four-cylinder engine with VVT-iE which is paired with an 8-speed Direct-Shift Automatic Transmission
  • Hybrid models will feature the Dynamic Force 2.5-liter inline-four-cylinder Toyota Hybrid System II engine  which is paired with the Electronically-Controlled Continuously-Variable Transmission

The Sportiest RAV4

In an all-new addition to the RAV4 Hybrid family the XSE Hybrid is perfect for those who prefer a sportier driving dynamic. It will feature piano-black accents and projector-beam LED headlamps to add to its sporty appeal. Thanks to enhanced power and acceleration the RAV4 XSE Hybrid takes the throne as the quickest - and best-handling - RAV4 in the lineup.

RAV4 XSE Hybrid's striking personality screams sporty, thanks to its standard two-tone exterior paint scheme. The black roof is paired with either Blizzard Pearl, Silver Sky Metallic, Magnetic Gray Metallic, or Blueprint which is a new color to the palette. RAV4 XSE Hybrid's exclusive interior comes in black Softex material with blue accents throughout.

On-and Off-Road Fun

If you're looking to satisfy your outdoor cravings the RAV4 Adventure is the model for you. To distinguish it from other grades the Adventure comes with standard high-rise roof rails and large over-fenders. Inspired by Toyota's off-road vehicle heritage, the Adventure grade has a more rugged exterior, thanks in part to its more aggressive grille, fog light surrounds, and unique wheel design. 

RAV4 Adventure grade will be available with an Ice Edge-colored roof that is paired with one of three exterior colors: Midnight Black Metallic or Blue Flame, both of which are new for RAV4; or Lunar Rock, an all-new color to the Toyota lineup that makes its first mission on RAV4. Inside, interior seat finishes come in either black or a grade-exclusive, Mocha-colored Softex, with the latter being a brand-new interior finish in the Toyota lineup. Orange stitching accents the interior with additional orange appointments placed throughout the dashboard.

Blissful weekend retreats are the ideal destination when behind the wheel of RAV4 Limited. As the top grade, both drivers and passengers will enjoy all of the amenities and features fitting of its premium style. On the surface the RAV4 Limited's 19-inch alloy wheels and chrome accents set it apart from the other grades. But, once inside the Limited's essence truly takes the stage.


Standard features include a moonroof and 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat with memory and 2-way lumbar support. Tech-wise, RAV4 Limited comes standard with a newly-designed 7-inch Multi-Information Display and, for the first time in a Toyota vehicle in North America, a Digital Display Rearview Mirror. By default, the display is a conventional rearview mirror but with the flip of a switch, drivers have an increased field of vision coming through the rearview mirror, displaying what is behind the vehicle thanks to a high-mounted, adjustable wide-angle, high-definition camera affixed on the rear of vehicle.

Optional features that can further increase your comfort include ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and a panoramic moonroof. When the weekend's gear fills both hands, the available hands-free power liftgate helps considerably by opening with a wave of the foot below the rear bumper.

Toyota Safety Sense 2.0

Toyota continues to lead the pack when it comes to safety, and the all-new RAV4 provides drivers and passengers with standard safety technologies that help move Toyota one step closer to achieving the ultimate goal of zero casualties from traffic accidents.  

RAV4 comes standard with TSS 2.0, the second generation of Toyota Safety Sense (TSS). The updated safety package adds new active-safety technologies and capabilities that enhance protection.

Breakdowns of each technology are as follows:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD): Capability to detect a preceding vehicle or pedestrian in daytime or with better low-light recognition capabilities, or daytime bicyclist (new), and alert the driver (audible and visual warnings) and/or apply brakes to help mitigate or avoid the collision in certain cases (using Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Brake Assist (BA), and Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB)).
  • Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC): For highways/freeways only - an adaptive cruise control that functions at speeds between 0 to 110 mph and enables low-speed speed matching, stopping, and acceleration/deceleration relative to a preceding vehicle traveling at a slower speed. Speed, cut-in, and distance control enhanced, as well as Turn Signal Linked control added, for a more natural response.
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA): Newly added to LDA w/SA is the capability, under some circumstances, to detect the road's edge, in addition to the pre-existing capability to detect visible lane markers and the vehicle's position in the lane. If unintentional lane deviation is detected, the system alerts the driver with audible and visual warnings. Steering Assist can provide small corrective steering inputs to help the driver prevent the vehicle from unintentionally leaving its lane.
  • Automatic High Beam (AHB): Capability to automatically activate and deactivate high beams based on driving environment and preceding vehicle's lights.
  • (NEW) Lane Tracing Assist (LTA): For highways/freeways only and can be enabled when using DRCC - Capability to recognize white or yellow lane markings or the path of a preceding vehicle if lane markers are temporarily unavailable; to identify and actively track the center of the lane by providing steering assistance to the driver (hands-on, driver-assist system). Reduces driver burden and supports safe driving, especially in traffic congestion or long highway trips. The LTA system can be turned on/off.
  • (NEW) Road Sign Assist (RSA): Capability to identify certain Stop, Yield, Do Not Enter and Speed Limit signs and display a warning (visual and audible alerts). Alerts vary based on sign type and are displayed on the Multi-Information Display.
