Toyota has launched it’s all new 2021 Venza in US today. The midsize two-row crossover utility vehicle boasts smooth acceleration, predictable handling, and low noise, vibration, and harshness all wrapped in a sophisticated design.
The all-new 2021 Venza comes equipped exclusively with the Toyota Hybrid System II powertrain and advanced Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive.
Powered by a new-generation Toyota Hybrid System combines a high-efficiency 2.5-liter DOHC four-cylinder engine with three electric motors in a highly compact system with a combined output rated at 219 hp. The gasoline engine employs Variable Valve Timing-intelligent system by Electric motor (VVT-iE) on the intake camshaft, and VVT-i on the exhaust camshaft. A variable cooling system (electric water pump, electric thermostat) and a fully variable oil pump further help improve engine efficiency.
The hybrid system optimizes the level of electric motor assistance and gas engine RPM without the engine running at high revs. Engine speed is synchronized with vehicle speed, yielding effortless and quiet acceleration. Venza’s hybrid system adopts a newly-developed lithium-ion battery to enhance performance and size and weight.
A host of tech-focused features are available, including a 12.3-inch touchscreen display with nine JBL speakers, 7-inch multi-information display (MID), digital rear-view mirror, and 10-inch color Head-Up Display.
