2013 Toyota Venza revealed [video]

Looking sportier than ever before, the facelifted Venza is distinguished by a new grille, restyled headlights and updated taillights.

The New York Auto Show is less than a day away, but that hasn't stopped Toyota from unveiling the 2013 Venza a little bit early.

Looking sportier than ever before, the facelifted model is distinguished by a new grille, restyled headlights and updated fog lights. There's also new wheels and restyled mirrors with integrated turn signals.

Interior changes are limited, but include a revised steering wheel and an optional Entune infotainment system. Three trim levels are available and the entry-level model comes nicely equipped with power front seats, a six-speaker audio system and dual-zone automatic climate control.

Under the hood, two engines are available. The 2.7-liter four-cylinder produces 181 hp (135 kW / 184 PS) and 182 lb-ft (246 Nm) of torque, while the 3.5-liter V6 develops 268 hp (200 kW / 272 PS) and 246 lb-ft (333 Nm) of torque. Regardless of which engine is selected, it is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission which can be backed up by an optional all-wheel drive system.
