The 2019 RAV4 Offers Raised Ground Clearance for a Sturdier Ride

The RAV4 brand name has become completely synonymous with the compact crossover SUV market ever since the very first iteration was introduced to the market back in the mid-1990s, but Japanese automaker Toyota is choosing not to rest on its laurels, introducing the latest and greatest version of this venerable vehicle.

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 is equipped with a host of upgrades, including heightened engine power, reduced fuel consumption and a robustly redesigned structure that makes it more capable than ever when it comes to navigating treacherous and tricky off-road terrain. The vehicle's increased robustness is also attributable to a new platform that includes a higher ground clearance than its predecessors.

With its combination of fuel savings and a ruggedized platform, the 2019 Toyota RAV4 is setting out to prove that the relatively small size of compact crossover SUVs doesn't mean they can't take the rigors of the road.
