To answer the question posed above, yes! The 2018 Toyota RAV4 is outfitted with an available All-Wheel Drive system, but it’s the Dynamic Torque Control that’s really the story here. This technology uses electronic sensors to monitor which wheels are being used more than others as you drive. With this information, it distributes optimal engine power to the wheels that are in need of it. In short, this means that you have increased grip and traction on and off the pavement.
