2022 Toyota RAV4: Promising Performance

2022 Toyota RAV4 in motion

Toyota is known for its innovation both on and off the road. That’s why the 2022 Toyota RAV4 lineup has both all-gas and hybrid models to choose from. Both models have their own impressive configuration, so let’s start off with the all-gas powertrain.

These models come standard with a powerful 2.5L DOHC engine that can produce 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. This is more than enough energy to conquer the road away. Plus, Toyota pairs standard Multi-Terrain Select on All-Wheel Drive (AWD) gas models. This system gives drivers the choice between the following driving modes:

  • Mud and Sand
  • Rock and Dirt
  • Snow
  • Normal

Once a mode is engaged, the system automatically adjusts the engine throttle, brakes, and drive-force distribution in order to improve traction on slippery or hazardous surfaces.

Now let’s talk hybrids. The Toyota RAV4 hybrid gets its energy from both a gas and electric power source. Specifically, a 2.5L hybrid engine with an Electronically Controlled Continuously Variable Transmission. This transmission allows for the smoothest drive possible and helps support its 219 combined net horsepower.

What makes the hybrid model really stand out is its fuel economy. The Toyota RAV4 Hybrid LE achieves an EPA-estimated 41 city and 38 highway MPG.1 This means whether you’re cutting through narrow city streets or taking on long stretches of highways, the RAV4 will go the distance.

2022 Toyota RAV4: The Perfect Fit

Now that we know what’s under the hood, let’s take a peek inside. The 2022 Toyota RAV4 has enough space to support five passengers at a time. When taking a seat inside, here are some measurements you and your passengers can expect:

2022 Toyota RAV4 Interior Dimensions

37.7 in./39.5 in.

Legroom (front/rear)

41 in./37.8 in.

Cargo Volume (front/rear)

69.8 cu. ft./37.6 cu. ft.

As you can see, no matter where their seat is located, riders can rely on at least 37.8 inches of legroom to stretch out during those long commutes. Plus, those seated in the rear have even more headroom than those seated in the front, making the model both child and adult friendly.

However, the RAV4 still manages plenty of comfort features for everyone, like fabric-trimmed seats, a 6-way adjustable front driver’s seat, and a 4-way adjustable front passenger seat with seatback pocket.
