2021 Venza Upgrades to Hybrid Performance

If you have been paying attention to updates and changes in Toyota’s model lineup these past few years, you have probably noticed that the brand has shifted toward enhancing fuel efficiency with plug-in hybrids, all-electric and hybrid models. The 2021 Toyota Venza joins the brand’s ever-growing team of hybrid models, as it is equipped with a 2.5-liter Dynamic Force 4-cylinder engine that produces 176 horsepower independently, but when paired with three electric motors, the total system output adds up to 219 horsepower. The Venza also offers selectable NORMAL, ECO and SPORT drive modes that help fine-tune the crossover’s performance to the driver’s tastes.
