Two new hybrid vehicles will soon join the Toyota lineup. This week, Toyota made a huge video announcement of the all-new 2021 Venza SUV and Sienna minivan that arrive this summer.

All-New Venza Hybrid

Coming back is the Venza, a midsized SUV that fills a much- needed vacancy between the RAV4 and the Highlander. Not only will all Venzas have a hybrid powertrain, but all of them will be all-wheel drive.

A centerpiece of the upper line Venza will be a stunning 12.3Ē multimedia touchscreen that can be operated by the driver or the passenger. Venza will also come standard with a host of safety features. Also, in a first for Toyota, the 2021 Venza offers an available Star GazeTM fixed panoramic glass roof.

All-New Sienna Hybrid

Van lovers, itís been a long time arriving, but the new fourth-generation Sienna is finely coming and like the Venza, it will be a hybrid and will have available all-wheel drive. Our friends at Honda should be a little worried about their Odyssey sales especially considering Toyota expects the combined fuel economy to be around 33-miles per gallon combined.

If you want to watch the reveal video of both vehicles check out the video of the livestream below:


There will be a host of entertainment packages available, and in some trims, you can get a built-in vacuum cleaner and a nifty refrigerator. The new Sienna also has a large touchscreen and power side sliding doors that you can open by putting your foot under the door. It also comes with a rear seat reminder so as not to leave precious cargo inside.

Styling appears to be more of an SUV look than a van. Although a hybrid, the new Sienna is rated to tow 3,500 pounds.

This new Venza looks great. Looks almost exactly like the 2017 RX 350 in my driveway (minor front end differences), which I love but it's lease is up next month. Deciding between leasing the 2020 RX 350 F-Sport for 3 years, taking over a local lease of an RX for a year or so until I see the impact of the virus on my profession, or (now) waiting for this. Specs are impressive, tech looks very impressive, that panoramic roof is incredible (which they've pretty much gotten rid of on the RX) and the 40 mpg estimate blows away even the RX 450 Hybrid which is only around 28 MPG, versus the RX350 which averages 20 MPG (per Fuelly use tracking site) though I average around 18 MPG. Not that I do that much driving (19,400 miles in 3 years on my RX) but it's on par with my parent's Prius.

Do you think this is worth waiting a year for over the RX 350 2020 model? Do you know when they'll have pricing out?

I donít know when pricing will be final on the Venza, but hopefully soon. You might talk to Lexus Financial and see if they will let you go month to month on the current Lexus until you can decide whether to go with the Venza or go back with another RX. Often they will allow this. I hope this helps you.
