2016 Toyota Venza Redesign, Specs, Release Date

There is a new release coming from this well-known Japanese car manufacturer. The car that we are talking about is refreshed and redesigned 2016 Toyota Venza. This car was given some attention and they have done a lot for its redesign. The car itself will be the same like its predecessor, but it will have some changes done to it although they won’t be that visible. That means that the car’s exterior will remain pretty much the same, but some touch will be given to its engines and interior. This car is not a regular car, since we can’t say it’s an SUV but we also can’t say it isn’t. It is a mid-size crossover SUV that offers the best from both types of cars. This car is not so popular and known on the market, even though there are not a lot of reasons for that. This car didn’t suffer a lot of changes in its lifetime since its last redesign was done in 2013 and even then it included color changes, wheel changes etc. all of which are not big changes. Toyota engineers tried to give this car a bit better fuel economy and efficiency but we think this car needs some serious redesign to become more wanted on the market, or maybe just some better promotion.

2016 Toyota Venza Engine and Specs

Powertrain for this car should get most of the changes for this model year. This year’s model should have 2.5 liter inline 4 engine that is able to produce 180 horsepower and have better fuel economy. The previous version had 2.7 liter engine and we think this switch is a realistic thing to do. We will see is that actually going to happen. Higher trim version will keep its 3.5 liter V6 engine that is able to produce 300 horsepower and 256 lb. –ft. of torque. There is also a possibility of a turbocharged 2.0 liter engine but that will most likely happen later on in car life cycle. Engines will come paired with 6 speed automatic transmission that will increase its fuel economy even more.
