Whether you are driving around the city on your daily commute or taking a trip along the California coast or exploring the wilderness in this great state, you’ll need a vehicle that can handle the daily grind and weekend adventures alike. Enter the 2020 Toyota RAV4 in San Francisco, CA. Completely redesigned for 2019, the 2020 model carries over that new design with a few refreshes for the new year. Six gasoline-powered trims are available with the 2020 Toyota RAV4: LE, XLE, XLE Premium, Adventure, TRD Off-Road, and Limited. Each one offers its own unique take on this versatile crossover SUV, with more premium features on the offering as you climb the trim ladder.
Let’s take a closer look at what makes the RAV4 one of the most popular and exciting vehicles you can drive.
A crossover that is meant to tackle the streets as well as the roads less traveled needs a powerful heartbeat, and the 2020 RAV4 delivers with a 2.5-liter Dynamic Force four-cylinder engine capable of dishing out 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.
The days of all SUVs being gas guzzlers are over. The 2020 RAV4 can get as much as an EPA-estimated 28 city, 35 highway, and 30 combined miles per gallon. With a 14.5-gallon fuel tank and that kind of efficiency, stops at the fuel pump will be less frequent.
Starting towing capacity for the 2020 RAV4 is 1,500 pounds when properly equipped. Adventure and TRD Off-Road models, however, can tow as much as 3,500 pounds when properly equipped, which is perfect for bringing a trailer or a boat to your weekend getaway.
