2017 RAV4 Hybrid SE towing? Hitch bike rack OK?
New to the forums so please excuse me if this question is a bit naive.
So I just picked up a 2017 Magnetic Grey RAV4 Hybrid SE. Curiously, it seems Toyota does not recommend towing with the SE trim (although XLE and Limited trims do have a towing capacity listed) and there is no towing capacity listed for the SE. As the powertrains for all trims are the same, I can only assume this limitation arises from the "sport-tuned suspension", does it ride lower?
In any case all I need to do is install a hitch to carry our Yakima bike rack. Dealer said this would be OK, but did not recommend towing. Anyone else have experience with this?
