2019 Toyota Rav4 Release Date in Canada
2019 Toyota Rav4 Release Date in Canada Introduced for the first time in the world in New York last month, the 2019 Toyota RAV4 will make it look Canadian at the 2018 Edmonton Motor Show this week. In 2017, the previous generation, despite reaching the end of its life cycle, ranked fourth for vehicle sales in the United States, behind three mics. In other words, the RAV4, even before it was renewed, was America’s favorite family vehicle.
The arrival of a new generation was therefore highly anticipated and should further strengthen its position on the market. With a more striking and attractive design, it seems destined to succeed. In addition, it is built on the TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) platform of the car manufacturer, which has proven its underlying value to the Prius and Camry, among others. Add to the combination of a number of advanced technologies and you have the stuff of a smash scoring success. The product was solid one before; Toyota may have made it irresistible.
We will test the route the RAV4 2019 in the coming months, and then we’ll have a better idea if it’s a promise made, promise maintained for the Toyota crossover! Each body panel has a sophisticated touch to it, with a chiseled appearance that is a perfect combination of athletics and charisma. The stronger nose leads to a more dynamic profile, sturdy shoulders, and 19-inch wheels available, making a powerful posture ready to face any road at any time.
The longer wheelbase and wider front and rear rails offer a stable and confident driving platform. For off-road prowess, shorter front and rear overhangs will help RAV4 ‘s ability to overcome rugged terrain. The RAV4 features an optimized multi-link rear suspension, providing ideal cushioning for handling, minimal interior cabin noise, and optimum driving comfort. The ground clearance has been increased by more than half an inch, but the RAV4 is capable of improving aerodynamics.

With a thermal efficiency of 40 percent (41 percent for hybrids), the 2.5-liter dynamic 4-cylinder Force engine is the ideal power plant for the all-new RAV4 to meet the demand to provide a very driving experience REACTIVEly, but fuel-efficient. The direct Shift-8AT allows you to directly lock the gears from two to eight to eliminate the power loss of the torque converter, by performing perfect smooth shifts.
The RAV4 Trail has the capabilities for all types of off-road entertainment for the rich who want to satisfy their outdoor demands. The RAV4 Trail stands out among the other ranks with its standard high-rise roof rails and large wings. Inspired by the heritage of Toyota’s off-road vehicles, the RAV4 Trail category has a more rugged exterior, partly due to its more aggressive grille, fog-light outlines, and unique wheel design.
Weekend retreats are the perfect destination when you’re behind the wheel of RAV4 Limited. Like superior quality, drivers and passengers will appreciate the equipment and features that suit its high-end style. At first glance, the RAV4 Limited 19-inch alloy rims and chrome accents distinguish it from other shades. Once inside, however, the essence of Limited really takes the stage.
In addition to standard front traction, the RAV4 gas models offer two types of integral traction available. The new, segment-and Toyota-Prime, Dynamic Torque vectoring integral traction with rear Driveline disconnect comes standard on Limited gas models equipped with integral traction and Trail. It can direct up to 50 percent of the engine torque to the rear wheels, as well as distribute it to the left or right rear wheel to improve handling on or off the roadway.
When full traction is not required – over long stretches of highway, for example – the RAV4 can get a better fuel economy thanks to the back-disconnect system of the transmission. The system uses the world’s first ratchet clutches to stop the rotation of the rear axle transmission shaft, greatly reducing energy loss and improving energy efficiency.
Standard on all RAV4 models equipped with full-traction gas, multi-terrain Select gives drivers the opportunity to maximize traction during driving through mud, sand, rocks, dirt, and snow. The system is easy to operate using control knobs or a control dial (depending on the shade) positioned to the left of the transmission transfer lever.
The pilot can choose Mud & Sand mode for beach driving or Rock & Dirt mode for trails. By using the multi-Information display (MID), the driver can visualize the torque allowance and the slip control, which change according to driving and road conditions.
In addition, RAV4 models include the following features for optimum road and off-road performance and safety:
- Hill start Help Control (HAC)
- Trailer Oscillation Control (TSC)
- Descent Assistance Control (DAC) (standard on track and AWD Limited only)
Additional content that improves the ambiance includes ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and a panoramic sunroof. When the weekend gear fills both hands, the hands-free power tailgate helps considerably by opening with a foot wave underneath the rear bumper.
Between the front passengers is a central console with a repositioned standard electronic parking brake (EPB) for easier accessibility. The ergonomics have been reinforced by an increase in the volume of the console, side Cup holders and an open tray capable of holding small objects, with an optional wireless IQ charger.

The tray in the dashboard at hand of the front passengers will see its share of the electronics, sunglasses, and must-haves travel. A standard smooth boot adorns the top of the shift lever, and the HVAC buttons in the center panel are rethought for a better tactility.
Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) is designed to help protect drivers, passengers, people on the road and other people on the road (TSS-P only). The TSS consists of multi-function active security packages anchored by an automated pre-collision warning and braking. TSS is designed to support driver awareness, decision making and vehicle operation over a wide range of gears under certain conditions.
New changes and upgrades include:
- A brand new rugged design and unparalleled driving experience
- 2.5 L Inline-4 and Toyota Hybrid System Powertrains offering more power and MPG
- TNGA K platform with Multi-Link rear suspension
- Standard Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 (TSS 2.0)
