2021 Toyota Venza: AWD or FWD?
Here at Arlington Toyota in Palatine, IL, winters are brutal. Below-zero temperatures, high-speed winds, and plenty of snow. As a result, many drivers opt for all-wheel drive vehicles. But sometimes that’s not an option. Is that the case for the 2021 Venza?
Does the 2021 Toyota Venza have AWD or is it a FWD vehicle only?
Every 2021 Toyota Venza comes standard with AWD, no matter the trim you choose. Which makes it that much more impressive when it gets an EPA-estimated 40-city/37-hwy mpg. For comparison, the non-hybrid 2021 Honda CR-V AWD only gets 27-city/32-hwy mpg, a full 8-city/5-hwy mpg lower. Even more impressive, the 2021 Venza does all this and still get an SULEV emissions rating, meaning it produces 90% fewer emissions than the average vehicle.
Standard 10-year Battery Warranty
Hybrids combine the power of a traditional gas engine with the clean efficiency of an electric motor and a battery pack. Battery packs are complex and expensive, however, and often costing thousands of dollars to replace. That’s not the case for the 2021 Venza. Its battery pack is covered by a 10-year/150,000-mile warranty. That’s 10 years of peace of mind, free of charge.
