New Toyota hybrids offer excellent fuel economy estimates

Fuel Economy Estimates for the 2021 Toyota Sienna/Venza 

It has been just over a month since Toyota pulled back the curtain on its new newest hybrid vehicles, the 2021 models of the Toyota Sienna minivan and the all-new Toyota Venza crossover SUV. As hybrid vehicles, the fuel economy estimates for the 2021 Toyota Sienna and Venza have become very important information to prospective buyers contacting Toyota of Decatur. It will still be a little while before the exact figures are released by Toyota or the federal government. However, Toyota has given us a peek at what these two innovative vehicles will be able to deliver to customers. Naturally, the team of product experts working in the Toyota of Decatur showroom is very eager to get this information into as many hands as possible.

2021 Sienna/Venza Early Efficiency Scores 

For the first time ever, Toyota is making its minivan a member of the hybrid family. The 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine will be attached to the Toyota Hybrid System II. It will produce a net total of 243 horsepower while also being able to achieve a combined 33 miles per gallon in the city and on the highway.  

The 2021 Toyota Venza uses a similar base powertrain that will be mated to a trio of electric motors to allow the vehicle to produce up to 219 net horsepower. Early projections from Toyota say that the 2021 Venza will be able to achieve as much as 40 combined miles per gallon, at least for the base LE trim. There may be some differences in other models.

Do these vehicles need to be plugged in? 

Both the 2021 Toyota Sienna and 2021 Toyota Venza can be driven for short distances using only stored electrical power. However, owners won’t need to have costly equipment installed in their homes or workplaces. The battery system can be charged through the normal course of driving or braking.  

You can start the pre-ordering process for either of the new Toyota hybrid vehicles today by scheduling an appointment with a Toyota of Decatur product expert.
