Just Announced: 2021 Toyota Venza Pricing and Colors May Surprise You

2021 Venza is set to arrive as an affordable hybrid option and with a familiar variety of colors – plus a new one.


This is a busy time of year if you are a Toyota fan. Most dealerships are preparing to move out their remaining 2020 models and get ready for new 2021 inventory. Some will be familiar to us. Some will be updated.

And some will be completely new. Well, sort of new.

In early September we should start seeing our first glimpses of the all-new 2021 Toyota Venza. This will mark the return of one of the most beloved, and underappreciated, models in Toyota’s long and proud history.

We have already learned about Toyota Venza features and styling. Now we know the pricing philosophy.

2021 Venza Specs

Toyota will take advantage of a trim level structure that most people are familiar with. The 2021 Venza is available in three different grades – LE, XLE and Limited.

A few quick Venza facts. It will be sold exclusively as a Hybrid. One that is equipped with the Toyota Hybrid System II powertrain with an on-demand all-wheel drive system.

An appealing selling point for potential buyers is fuel economy. Toyota Venza is anticipated to arrive with gas mileage of 39 mpg combined. Saving money at the pump and having to make less stops for gas are never bad things, right?

Combine this impressive fuel efficiency with 219 net system horsepower and you have the makings of a smooth and comfortable ride with good acceleration when you need it.

2021 Venza is powered by a 2.5-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine combined with three electric motors. Drivers should feel a nice boost of speed when starting from a stopped position due to solid low-end torque.

Time will tell, but Venza is being billed as one of the quietest vehicles Toyota has ever built. This is very appealing to me as a potential buyer. I need a quiet ride for longer road trips. You may like this aspect as well.

2021 Toyota Venza Price

Venza is expected to be marketed as an option for buyers looking for a vehicle in size between a RAV4 and a Highlander. Initial pricing seems to support this theory.

LE will have a starting MSRP (pricing from the factory and before delivery and additional options) of $32,400. XLE will start at $36,000 and Limited MSRP is $39,800.

Delivery, processing and handling fee to get each 2021 Venza to dealerships will be $1,175.

2021 Venza Colors

Look for a variety of color choices when researching the 2021 Toyota Venza. Some new and some we are quite familiar with.

Blizzard Pearl, Black, Ruby Flare Pearl and Blueprint are colors most of us know pretty well by now.

Titanium Glow is a choice available on Prius Prime, and now on the all-new Venza as well.

Coastal Gray Metallic is the color we have been seeing the most of in Toyota’s initial launch blitz. This one seems luxurious and classy, and it probably will not show too much dirt. Venza is on my short list for a new car at the end of the year, and I am thinking Coastal Gray will be my choice – at least for now.

Time for your thoughts on Toyota Venza

Have preliminary details of 2021 Venza piqued your interest enough to consider it for purchase in the near future? If so, what do you think of pricing information? What trim level does your gut tell you is best for you and your family?

What colors jump out at you?

Le Would work for me the only stipulation is I want LED headlights and it’s not offered on the early version.

Hoping southeast region doesn't do funky bundles like they did with Rav4 XLE(only combining weather and convenience where other regions did weather separate). I'm very happy that I can get premium audio without sunroof! Now I just need to find a way to sit in and test drive one to make sure I have enough headroom!

Been driving a Venza for 10 years. Will have a 2021 Limited in 3 weeks. Driven the XLE. Really a nice ride. Drives great. This is as close to luxury as I can afford. Can’t wait for it to get here.
