The Venza is a five passenger vehicle and will be built on the Camry platform a the Georgetown production plant. It isn't a hybrid vehicle, but will be what Toyota calls a "unique blend of sedan and sport utility vehicle."

    Toyota, all they did was take jobs from US owned manufactures. In addition, what happend to that once mythed quality they had. Not even the biased media say they are tops anymore. How about Ford being in KY for decades in Louisville? Also, did Ford beat Toyota overall in '07 for quality? Yes for those central Ky brainwashed toyota buyers. Look at Ford, you'll see the best quality, value and look today. Stop buying Toyotas, they are ugly, expensive and most important, they are owned by a non- American company. Wake up people that buy on name, you are not near as smart as you think you are.

    A group of good old Eastern Ky boys were on the team that was involved with the making of this new vehicle & it makes me very proud. Zatoichi can hold your comments until you can see the performance of this vehicle. I think its very beautiful & from knowing the ones on the team that are responsible for it I am betting it has outstanding performance. Good going Greg & team!!!!
