2019 Toyota RAV4 on tree-lined street

Whether you’re tackling dirt trails near Pooler or taking care of errands, the 2019 Toyota RAV4 is high on the shopping list of many crossover SUV buyers. It’s expected to arrive soon at Savannah Toyota, and new details are emerging about this capable vehicle. A new all-wheel drive system adds dynamic torque vectoring for better control, and a 2.5L 4-cylinder provides plenty of power. There’s even a new Hybrid trim option and upgrades to the Toyota RAV4 Adventure trim. Find out more today!

Updates to the Toyota RAV4 Adventure

The 2018 Toyota RAV4 was offered in the Adventure trim, and 2019 will bring big upgrades to that off-road focused variation. A Multi-Terrain Select system offers the choice between modes suited for sand, mud, snow, and rocks. That ensures versatility over a wider range of terrains and trail conditions.

On top of that, the Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive is new for 2019. This Toyota all-wheel drive system can send different amounts of power to individual rear wheels, allowing for better control in tight turns. A Rear Driveline Disconnect is added as well, making the RAV4 well suited for trails near Pooler.

New Features for the 2019 Toyota RAV4

At Savannah Toyota, we’re still waiting on the final 2019 Toyota RAV4 price, but its new features were recently revealed at the New York International Auto Show. Many come standard with either the base trim or the upgraded Toyota RAV4 XLE. Expect the following tech and entertainment features for 2019:

  • 11-Speaker JBL Audio system Available with Higher Trim Levels
  • Available Digital Display Rearview Mirror
  • Entune 3.0 Infotainment System
  • Amazon Alexa Voice Commands
  • Apple CarPlay Connectivity

It features an efficient 2.5L 4-Cylinder engine and an electronically-controlled continuously variable transmission (ECVT), and it’s offered in a high-performance variation in the new 2019 RAV4 XSE Hybrid trim.
