Does Your 2021 Toyota Venza Have Remote Engine Start? We Have Answers
One of most common questions I get from my “Toyotajeff” YouTube channel viewers is about remote start. You know, the ability to remotely start your engine using your vehicle key fob. People want to know if their particular model has it, and if not, how they can get it.
Remote start is such a convenient feature, especially when the weather is hot and humid or freezing cold.
But what about Toyota Venza?
2021 Toyota Venza
You may remember Toyota Venza from years past. It was manufactured in the United States from 2009-2015.
Now it makes its return, although pretty much in name only. You see, this all-new 2021 Venza is entirely different from its predecessor. This Venza is elegant and luxury and high-technology. And Venza is all-hybrid.
All trim levels (LE, XLE, Limited) are offered solely as an all-hybrid, all all-wheel drive. The 2021 Toyota Venza is powered by the combination of electric motors and a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 219 horsepower.
Remote Start and 2021 Toyota Venza
Good news for buyers in the market for a 2021 Venza. Your vehicle comes equipped with remote engine start. And you can perform this function in two different ways.
First, you can start your car from your key fob. Simply stand in front of your car and click “Lock” and “Lock” and then hold down “Lock” again. Wait for the lights to flash and it should start your engine running. Remember, since this Venza is a hybrid, it will start from electric motors first before the gasoline engine starts.
My included video shows how to start your engine for LE, XLE and Limited trim levels. I hope you find it helpful.
You can also start your engine using your smart phone. Download the “Toyota” app and register your new 2021 Venza. Your Remote Connect feature will allow you to start and stop your engine, check your fuel level, track your car’s location and see if you left any windows or doors unlocked right from your phone.
Time for your thoughts on 2021 Toyota Venza
I encourage you to try this “Lock, Lock, (hold down) Lock” process on your current vehicle and report back if it works.
This function works on other makes in addition to Toyota. You may just have it.
I am impressed with how the new Venza looks and how it drives. I find it to be smooth and comfortable both at city and highway cruising speeds.
Are you in the market for a new vehicle and could Toyota Venza be on your list? Have you owned a Venza in the past and what did you think of it?
