Every 2016 RAV4 compact crossover is equipped with Toyota's efficient 2.5-liter inline-4 engine, producing a highly capable 176 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque. The 2.5-liter engine's Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) technology helps maximize performance while boosting the RAV4’s fuel economy, too. A 6-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with intelligence (ECT-i) is paired with Toyota's 2.5-liter engine to provide smooth shifts and effortless acceleration at all speeds. Standard front-wheel drive (FWD) provides excellent fuel efficiency and grip, while the available all-wheel drive (AWD) system with dynamic torque control is a popular choice for drivers who want added control and confidence in all driving conditions. Fuel economy figures range from an EPA-estimated 24 miles per gallon in the city and 31 mpg on the highway for RAV4 2WD models to 22 city/29 highway mpg for RAV4s with AWD.
For even greater fuel efficiency while behind the wheel of a new RAV4 compact crossover, drive the RAV4 Hybrid. The RAV4 hybrid is one of the few hybrid small crossovers available today and features a 2.5-liter inline-4 hybrid engine, with All-Wheel Drive with intelligence (AWD-i) as standard. The RAV4 Hybrid returns up to an EPA-estimated 34 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway, which rivals the efficiency of many smaller cars! The RAV4 Hybrid's EV Mode even lets you operate solely on battery power under certain driving conditions. To test drive the RAV4 or RAV Hybrid crossover near Slidell, LA, visit Toyota of Slidell.
