The RAV4 has an option for a rear torsen diff. From Toyota's page:
Limited-Slip Differential: Optional on
4WD models, a Torsen® limited-slip rear
differential enhances your RAV4's traction.
Unlike conventional differentials, this
system transfers power to the wheel with
the most traction or splits power between
both rear wheels equally. That's a
gotta-have for snow and off-roading.
