What kind of gas mileage does the 2018 RAV4 get?
The 2018 Toyota RAV4 takes you everywhere with its 2.5-liter 4-cylinder that uses Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence and Dual Overhead Cams to generate 176 horsepower and 172 lb.-ft. of torque. The EPA-estimated fuel economy allows the vehicle to get up to 30 MPG on the highways around Harrisburg
and 23 MPG in the city using the 6-speed Electronically Controlled automatic Transmission with intelligence. A 194-horsepower hybrid version of the same engine also gets 30 MPG on the highway but, it gets 34 MPG in the city with the Continuously Variable Transmission. Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive with intelligence adds more torque to the rear wheels when you need more traction on uncertain surfaces.

If you have the Smart Key Fob on you, just kick your foot under the rear bumper and the hands-free foot-activated power liftgate will open up automatically. For your convenience, you can program the height of the hatch to accommodate low overhangs when needed.
