Toyota RAV4 Engine Options and MPG Ratings

Engine Options and MPG RatingsIf you want to get the most possible miles from a single fill-up of your Toyota RAV4, the hybrid powertrain is going to be the move. The 2.5L hybrid is paired with an Electrically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission and an electronic on-demand all-wheel drive platform. These work together to deliver that EPA-estimated 41 city/38 highway MPG.1

So what are the other options? Well, a 2.5L gas-powered motor is also on tap for 2021. With it, you can expect as much as an EPA-estimated 28 city/35 highway MPG when you have the crossover in front-wheel drive arrangement.1 You can opt for an all-wheel drive system if you prefer, while the transmission is going to be an 8-speed automatic.

Performance Outputs: Horsepower, Torque, & Drive Modes

Horsepower, Torque, & Drive ModesThere’s plenty more to talk about when exploring the performance of the Toyota RAV4 beyond the MPG ratings. For instance, each motor comes with specific drive modes. With the hybrid, you have access to Normal, Sport, ECO, and EV. The modes alter throttle response and transmission behavior to create a unique and specific experience behind the wheel. Also of note, the hybrid motor pumps out 219 combined system net horsepower.

The 2.5L non-hybrid also comes with driving modes: Sport, ECO, and Normal. Power outputs for this engine are registered at 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.

To further enhance fuel-saving capabilities, the non-hybrid features an auto Stop and Start Engine system. Essentially, your engine shuts off completely when you come to a stop. It will stay off so long as you hold the brake pedal down. As soon as you release the pedal, though, the engine smoothly kicks back and you’re ready to set off once again!
