RAV4 Adventure Ground Clearance


The Toyota RAV4 LE and XLE offer a 6.1-inch ground clearance, but if you opt for the Toyota RAV4 Adventure trim, you’ll get a ground clearance of 6.5 inches. With this ride height, you can clear more obstacles to reach more of what’s out there.

Plus, you’ll get more style and capability with 18-inch 5-spoke Black alloy wheels. With the lower valance panels and available unique Adventure-grade mudguards, you’ll prevent mud and other debris from being thrown into the air by the rotating tires.

No matter where you’re traveling to, the integrated black roof rails will help you bring your gear along for the ride. Additionally, the trim’s unique badging, black-accented power heated mirrors, and halogen projector-beam headlights with black bezels will make sure you get there in style.

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Ground Clearance

The 2018 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid has a ground clearance of seven inches, which means that even the hilliest terrain is no match for this SUV.

Plus, with the Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive with intelligence system, you can drive around with confidence, no matter the time of year. This system uses the electric motor to deliver instant torque to the rear wheels whenever you need more traction.

Not only can you take on any road surface, but you can also drive farther for longer since the hybrid model achieves an EPA-estimated 34 city/30 highway MPG.*

This vehicle also includes a comprehensive energy monitor. It’ll indicate how the gas engine, electric motor, and hybrid battery are operating. As you drive, you’ll get real-time information on how power is being used and how the battery is being charged. You’ll then see all this information on the 6.1-inch high-resolution touchscreen.

2018 RAV4 Performance Specs

The ground clearance for every other Toyota RAV4 trim is 6.1 inches, which is still quite impressive. It also has respectable handling and ride quality, making it a great everyday driver.

It comes with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that delivers 176 horsepower and 172 lb-ft of torque. Plus, it achieves an EPA-estimated 23 city/30 highway MPG, so you can enjoy the open road for longer.*

If you’re interested in customizing your driving experience, then take advantage of the several driver-selectable modes. There’s ECO mode that’ll help maximize fuel economy; Sport Mode will give you a more spirited drive with thrilling acceleration; and EV Mode in the hybrid will let you operate on battery power alone under certain conditions.

Furthermore, similar to the hybrid, the RAV4 is available with an All-Wheel Drive system with Dynamic Torque Control. This system will continually monitor and distribute torque between the front and rear wheels to deliver maximum traction.

So, no matter what the weather is like outside, you’ll be able to face it head-on.
