Today, Toyota announced pricing on its new 2009 Venza crossover, a vehicle that basically takes the place of the Camry wagon that hasn't been sold in years. It also fills a (microscopic) niche left behind after a recent upsizing of the Highlander. Toyota has an exhaustive lineup of not-quite-a-car, not-quite-a-truck (and definitely not-quite-a-minivan) vehicles, from the newly designed Toyota Highlander to the RAV4 and the Lexus RX350. The Venza veers toward the vanilla side of the crossover equation, being built on a Camry chassis alongside that vehicle and the Avalon at its plant in Georgetown, Ky.

The most basic Venza starts at $25,975 and is motivated by a 2.7-liter four-cylinder and front-wheel drive. Four-cylinder AWD models begin at $27,425, V-6 front-wheel-drive models at $27,800, and V-6 AWD models $29,250.

The new 2009 Toyota Venza, recently driven by our staff, has carlike moves but the taller view out and the bold styling Americans have flocked to at dealerships. Buyers may option up to 20-inch wheels as well as Toyota's excellent 3.5-liter corporate V-6. We'll be showing you a few tricked-out Venzas live from SEMA tomorrow; we expect these specially designed editions will be appropriate for the high-testosterone environment at the massive automotive specialty showcase, if not exactly representative of the vehicles that will be doing soccer practice transport in the near future.--Colin Mathews

  3. A tall camry station wagon, esp. witl 4wd, was LONG OVERDUE.
    Toyota lost hundreds of thousands of sales to SUBARU because it did not have the Venza 10 years ago.
    ANd it sure looks far better than the ugly subaru!
