Finding itself at home both on and off the trail, the all-new Toyota RAV4 is the perfect SUV to satisfy the adventurer in all of us. It features plenty of punch (up to 203 horsepower), incredible versatility off the road thanks to All-Wheel Drive capabilities, and a chiseled exterior that can awaken a spirit of fun and excitement.  

Still, however, like all other vehicles in the industry, the 2019 RAV4 demands the same kind of care and routine maintenance to keep it running like it should. So, today our Toyota Palo Alto team will show you the recommended oil type for the 2019 Toyota RAV4 – with this in mind, you’ll be sure to keep moving forward with confidence!  

2019 Toyota RAV4 optimal oil viscosity and service intervals 

To give you the ultimate performance possible out of your 2019 RAV4, we recommend using synthetic oil with a composition of either SAE 0W-20 or SAE 5W-20. Both of these are two of the most common oil builds on the market, so you’re sure to find them at any store or at our dealership. Keep in mind, however, that this is only a recommendation, so it’s best to consult your owner’s manual to see which oil type is best for your RAV4 model.

We should also mention the best intervals to get work done on your RAV4; depending on usage and conditions that you drive in, you should aim to have your oil replaced every 5,000-7,000 miles or six months. This way, you’ll have a high quality, fun drive every time you press the pedals.

    Commenters above, do the metric conversion. 10,000 km is right in range with what the blog recommends…
