2021 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Review

In this review, I look at the 2021 Tundra pickup truck in its TRD Pro off-road package. This is a basic truck made better with some off-pavement goodies and it ticks all of the marks most would have in a workaday truck.

2021 Toyota Sienna and Venza Unveiled

The Toyota Venza returns as a 2021 model in an all-new design. Aaron is glad to see the wagon-like Venza look more appealing and Kristin likes that it’s a hybrid by default. The new Sienna minivan was unveiled at the same time, sharing the same drivetrain and with a surprise nudge-nudge finger point towards Chrysler in its announcement.

Both of these are a big deal for Toyota, whose losing ground in the smaller two-row midsized crossover segment and whose minivan has become aged against newer competition. Both of these seek to rectify those shortcomings and are definitely on point towards doing so.

Find out what we know and what we think about the new 2021 Toyota Venza and the 2021 Toyota Sienna.
