Want a balance of power and fuel efficiency in Kingwood instead? Then, you’ll want to know how much a Toyota RAV4 can tow in its Hybrid SE configuration. Here are the 2022 Toyota RAV4 towing capacity for both gasoline and hybrid engines:

2.5L 4-Cylinder Engine

  • Towing Capacity with Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD – Up to 3,500 pounds
  • Payload Capacity with Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD – Up to 1,025 pounds
  • Towing Capacity with FWD – Up to 1,025 pounds
  • Payload Capacity with FWD – 1,100 to 1,230 pounds depending on configuration

ECVT 2.5L Dynamic Force 4-Cylinder Engine

When you get into a Hybrid SE, its Electronically Controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT) saves fuel by adapting to your driving style and the terrain under your tires. By tapering smoothly between speed settings, this transmission matches engine output with conditions simultaneously to maximize efficiency at all times.
