The Toyota RAV4 is a reliable SUV offering plenty of safety features and cargo room for everyone, including families and daily commuters. But you may be wondering, is it an efficient SUV? Our team at Maguire Toyota put together this overview of the Toyota RAV4 MPG to show drivers near Ithaca, Elmira, and Binghamton, NY, what it has to offer. 

Toyota RAV4 Fuel Economy & MPG

The 2020 Toyota RAV4 can get up to an EPA-estimated 28 city/35 highway MPG.1 To help it deliver this kind of fuel economy, it runs on a 2.5L Dynamic Force 4-Cylinder engine with Dual Injection and Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence. This design helps it provide up to 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.

This powertrain is controlled by an efficient Direct Shift 8-speed Electronically Controlled automatic Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i) and sequential shift mode. By working together, the smart transmission and VVT-i engine have helped the Toyota RAV4 become an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV).

Toyota RAV4 Performance & Capability

This SUV is available with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. With the all-wheel drive models, you'll have a Stop and Start Engine System (S & S) that works to maximize your efficiency by shutting the engine off when you're stopped or idling.

Both drivetrains feature selectable drive modes that can help you personalize your drive. When you take the wheel, you can select the Normal Mode, for everyday driving, the Sport Mode, for when you want to take an exciting drive, or the ECO Mode, for when you want to maximize your fuel economy.
