Toyota News: Toyota Venza to Stage A Return

Recommended Posts

According to the Rumorpile, Toyota is working on bringing back the Venza, a car that went out of production after 2015. The original Venza did not sell very well, partially due to its wagon-like shape and also relatively high pricing.  It also lacked any off-road pretense that typically comes with a crossover.

The problem for Toyota is that there is a large Venza sized gap in their SUV lineup between the RAV-4 and Highlander. This time around, the Venza would ditch the wagon looks and instead be a true crossover along the lines of the Chevrolet Trailblazer, Honda Passport, and Ford Edge. There is a possibility that the Venza would come in only hybrid form using the same 2.5-liter setup with rear electric motor that the Highlander uses. 

If the rumors prove true, you could see a new Venza hit the auto show circuit as early as 2021.

I was wondering why the Venza was discontinued.  Almost every other automaker has a CUV positioned where the Venza was.  I wonder how the Venza will compete in today's auto marketplace.

the 2.5L and hybrid sound like it would reign supreme in the MPG war in this size.  wife took a test drive in one a few years ago. seemed fairly good for that short of a drive.

High MPG Hybrid CUV with off road capabilities would do Toyota well.

They will sell a ton of them because look at how the RAV4 and Highlander well.  They need another vehicle in between.
