2017 Toyota Venza Release and Price

The Toyota Venza has recently been discontinued as far as the North American market is concerned. However, the model aimed at other markets will be in production until September 2017. That said, expect the 2017 Toyota Venza to carry over unchanged compared to the outgoing model. Due to Venza’s plummeting sales during the last few years, the company decided to axe this mid-size CUV that first arrived for the 2009 MY. A model that combines the qualities of an MPV and an SUV has simply become outdated in competition with the rapidly expanding SUV segment.

The 2017 Venza will retain its current pricing, with the base LE model starting at just under $30,000. Its sales are expected to begin in the fall of 2016.

2017 Toyota Venza Design and Features

Design-wise, the Venza features a rather unique styling in Toyota’s lineup. Thanks to its standard 19-inch wheels and a high seating position, this CUV offers an athletic appearance. Just like the previous models, the 2017 Toyota Venza will be available in LE, XLE and Limited trims. One of its greatest qualities is a long list of standard equipment that includes a dual-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, a 3.5-inch multi-information display, as well as a USB port with iPod connectivity. While the base LE trim comes standard with fabric seats, the mid-level XLE and the range-topping Limited offer fine leather upholstery. When it comes to safety features, the Venza boasts an impressive list of standard amenities. Every model comes equipped with Toyota’s Star Safety System that includes Traction Control, Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Anti-lock Brakes, Brake Assist and Smart Stop Technology.

2017 Toyota Venza Engine

No changes are expected when it comes to the 2017 Toyota Venza’s engine range. The familiar 2.7-liter four-cylinder produces 181 horsepower and 182 pound-feet of torque. In case you opt for more power, there is the 3.5-liter V6 returning 268 hp and 246 lb-ft of twist. Both engines are coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission with uphill/downhill shift logic. The Venza will once again be available in FWD and AWD variants, with the latter towing up to 3,500 pounds.
