When the 2013 Toyota Venza five-passenger mid-size crossover arrives at dealerships next week, it will carry a base manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $28,510, including $810 destination charge.
For the top-of-the-line Limited trim, that starting MSRP, with destination charge, is nearly $40,000 ($39,780).
The 2013 Venza, available in LE, XLE and Limited trim levels and in front-wheel-drive (FWD) and all-wheel-drive (AWD) configurations, receives a few exterior styling changes and more standard and available features.
Venza LE and XLE crossovers are powered by the standard 182-horsepower 2.7-liter four-cylinder or optional 268-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 powertrains, while the V-6 is standard on the Limited.
Standard equipment on all models includes a blind spot mirror, integrated turn signals in side mirrors, eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel with integrated audio controls, and three 12-volt power outlets.
The Toyota Entune multimedia system is standard on Limited and is now available on LE and XLE. The system leverages smartphones to provide access to mobile Internet apps such as Pandora, OpenTable, iheart radio and Bing.
Excluding the $810 destination charge, prices across the Venza lineup increased from 0.9 percent (LE V-6 FWD/AWD) to 5.3 percent (XLE, four-cylinder FWD).
