With summer kicking into full gear here in Wisconsin, many drivers will be packing up their vehicles for road trips, camping adventures and travels up north. Our team at Hesser Toyota is sharing how much the 2016 Toyota RAV4 can tow, so drivers can plan ahead on what they can pack in the fuel-saving crossover this summer.
2016 Toyota RAV4 towing capacity
The 2016 Toyota RAV4 runs on a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, which generates 176 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque under the hood. This spirited performance also results in an estimated 31 mpg highway fuel economy, which makes long-distance travel much more efficient for those heading out on the open road in the warmer months.
When properly equipped, the RAV4 can also tow up to 1,500 pounds of additional cargo. This gives drivers the added muscle they need to bring along a trailer of bicycles or a small fishing boat.
2016 Toyota RAV4 cargo space
If drivers are traveling solo or with a front seat companion this summer, they can fold down the rear seat to reveal up to 73.4 cubic feet of storage space. Sleeping bags, tent supplies or even a petite kayak can be safely transported to the lake or campsite while keeping the interior comfortable for the front travelers.
As with any seasonal travel, our team at Hesser Toyota encourages drivers to schedule a car maintenance appointment before making any length trips in the higher temperatures. Contact our team online, by phone or at the dealership to learn more about safe summer travel today.
