2013 Toyota Venza MSRP announced

America's Best Crossover Gets New Pricing

It is a bold statement to make, but at least from this perspective, the Toyota Venza is the best overall crossover on the market and pricing has been announced for the 2013 model.

Why is the Toyota Venza the best crossover on the market? Simply put, it does everything right from the outside to the inside. Is it the fastest crossover? Nope. Does it hug the corners the best? Nope. Is it the most luxurious? Nope.

The thing is it doesn't disappoint in any area. No sacrifices are made in one area to the benefit of the other. That's what makes it the best overall crossover.

The 2013 Toyota Venza begins arriving in dealers before June 1. The 2013 Venza is available in LE, XLE and Limited grades. The LE and XLE models are available with all powertrain combinations: four-cylinder, V6, front-wheel drive (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD); the Venza Limited is powered by the V6 engine only, in front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive configurations. Both engines are teamed with a six-speed sequential-shift electronically controlled automatic transmission with intelligence (ECT-i).

The base MSRP for the 2013 Venza LE will range from $27,700 for the front-wheel-drive (FWD) four-cylinder to $30,970 for the V6 all-wheel-drive (AWD), reflecting an increase $270 to $275, or 0.9-1.0 percent.

Pricing for the Venza XLE will range from $31,360 for the four-cylinder FWD to $34,630 for the V6 AWD, an increase ranging from $1,580 to $1,585, or 4.8 to 5.3 percent.

The Limited grade Venza will be receive a base MSRP of $37,420 for the FWD model, while the AWD model will be priced at $38,870. Both prices reflect an increase of $955, or 2.5 percent for the AWD and 2.6 percent for the FWD.
