Toyota will launch the 2013 Venza crossover in North America at the New York Auto Show, which will open April 4 to the press and two days later to the public. The refreshed Venza now dons a new upper and lower grille, rear taillights and fog lamps. Toyota also changed the Venza’s wheel design. The Venza will be available in three new colors: Attitude Black, Cypress Pearl and Cosmic Gray Mica.

The model will still be offered in LE, XLE and Limited trim levels, which will have additional standard features. The LE edition will feature an additional standard display audio, outer mirror turn signals, a blind-spot mirror, and puddle lamps.

The XLE edition, meanwhile, will feature a driver memory seat, display audio with navigation and reverse tilt outer mirrors, as well as Toyota’s Entune multimedia system. The Limited edition will feature an additional standard LED daytime running lights and a hard disk drive navigation system with Entune and JBL audio system.

Toyota is assembling the Venza at its Georgetown, Ky., plant, which also builds the Avalon and Camry. The company developed and engineered the Venza at the Toyota Technical Center in Ann Arbor, Mich.

According to Reuters, company officials are thinking of increasing its forecast of U.S. industry sales of 13.6 million units in 2012, following a strong showing in January and February. Toyota posted a 12% year-on-year increase on US sales, while recording a 16% jump. The Venza also posted a five-percent jump in year-on-year sales for February 2012.
