Check Out the All-New 2021 Toyota Sienna and Venza

Did you hear the news?  Toyota is launching the All-New 2021 Sienna and VenzaBoth coming as a hybrid onlyBold move!

I got to watch Toyota's Spring New Product Showcase announcement, and while viewing it, I was very excited and looking forward to testing out both vehicles.

You may remember, I took the 2020 Toyota Sienna for a drive up the Smoky Mountains and loved every bit of it!  Honestly, I thought it was hard to top the 2020 model.  But no, Toyota keeps hitting us with the surprises, making each year vehicles better than the last!

And the exterior styling of the 2021 Toyota Sienna gives off that 2020 Toyota Highlander unique look.  It's like a mash together with van and SUV.

About 2021 Toyota Sienna

Aiming to redefine the segment, the fourth-generation Toyota Sienna reimagines the minivan to support a more comprehensive array of life stages and activities. With a standard hybrid powertrain now across all trims and a variety of new tech and amenities, the 2021 Toyota Sienna raises the bar for style, safety, comfort, versatility, and fuel efficiency in its segment.

Designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S., the all-hybrid 2021 Sienna, influenced by the bold and robust character of SUVs, hosts many premium features: kick-open and closed sliding side doors and rear gate, four-zone climate control system, heated second-row super-long slide captain’s chairs with ottomans, onboard vacuum and refrigerator, a segment-first power tilt and telescoping steering column with heated steering wheel, a digital rear-view mirror, 10-in. color head-up display and 12-speaker JBL® Premium Audio system.

The 2021 Toyota Sienna is also ready for life’s outdoor adventures with its all-wheel-drive option – and is well-positioned for Yakima® accessories, such as a rooftop carrier, crossbars, bike rack and more. The Sienna will also offer an available tow hitch and factory optional 1,500-watt inverter with 120V AC outlet to power camping equipment.

What’s more, all versions of the 2021 Sienna are rated to tow up to 3,500 pounds. That’s enough to pull a well-equipped compact travel trailer or carry your bikes for that weekend getaway.

2021 Toyota Venza

The Toyota Venza is reborn, coming back bigger and better than ever!  The first generation of the Toyota Venza was introduced in 2009 but was quickly discontinued after the 2015 model due to customer preference, competitiveness within the segment, and deteriorating sales.

I never had a chance to experience the Toyota Venza but did notice the Venza on the roads when it came out on the market.  But today, you don't see much of those Venzas.  Maybe customers who had them traded them in for something else due to their dislike of the crossover vehicle.

Looking at the 2021 Toyota Venza now, Toyota worked out all the kinks, and consumers should have a better experience.  The new Venza got that luxurious Lexus RX vibe. 

Hopefully, I'll have a chance to test drive this vehicle and let you know my thoughts.

About 2021 Toyota Venza

With a striking new debut, Toyota is breaking the sameness barrier in the midsize two-row crossover utility vehicle (CUV) category. The all-new 2021 Venza delivers an intuitive driving experience with smooth acceleration, predictable handling, and low noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH), 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. Along with comfortable urban and highway performance, Venza is expected to have impressive fuel efficiency, with a preliminary manufacturer-estimated 40 MPG combined fuel economy in LE trim.
The 2021 Venza, which will be assembled at the Takaoka Plant and arrives in Toyota dealerships this summer, is built around a version of the Toyota New Global Architecture K platform that underpins some of the company’s sedans and crossovers. As such, Venza delivers the best of both worlds: sedan-like driving comfort and CUV versatility.

The 2021 Venza offers ample room for five in a highly maneuverable package. A host of tech-focused features are available, including a 12.3-inch touchscreen display with nine JBL speakers, a 7-inch multi-information display (MID), a digital rear-view mirror, and 10-inch color Head-Up Display. Other available features include a Star GazeTM fixed panoramic glass roof, a first-ever for Toyota, and heated and ventilated front seats that set the stage for true, graceful grand touring.

In addition to excellent collision protection provided by the TNGA-K platform (projected to achieve top NHTSA safety ratings), the 2021 Venza comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense (TSS 2.0), a comprehensive suite of active safety systems.

    We may look at this for our next vehicle. It's really spacious! Our current vehicle has Stow&Go which we LOVE! But we like the Sienna too!
