Toyota Tweaks 2014 Camry, Venza, Prius V, FJ Cruiser Pricing

There isn’t a whole lot of change in store for the 2014 Toyota Camry, 2014 Toyota Prius V, 2014 Toyota Venza, 2014 Toyota Sequoia, 2014 Toyota Sienna, 2014 Toyota Land Cruiser, or the 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser, but the automaker did reveal a few small tweaks and price updates for the aforementioned models earlier this morning.

2014 Toyota Camry

The Camry SE Sport was once billed as a limited-edition trim level, but the package has been re-introduced for the 2014 model year. Like the first go-around, the 2014 Camry SE Sport bundles the Camry’s base 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a number of features usually found only on more expensive models, including 18-inch smoked aluminum wheels, a power driver’s seat, and a power moonroof. The lone option is a widescreen audio head unit complete with Toyota’s Entune audio system.

According to Toyota, the 2014 Camry SE Sport is priced at $25,900, and represents a $435 “discount” when the additional content is factored in.

2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser

According to Toyota’s fleet sales website, 2014 will be the final model year for the FJ Cruiser – but even so, there are a few minor changes for the new year. The 2014 FJ Cruiser gains a new paint option – Cement Grey, which was previously restricted to the Trail Teams model – while a new “performance damper” design will be offered as an option. A special-edition model, likely a new variant of the familiar Trail Teams edition, will be introduced later and available come February.

Base pricing for the 2014 FJ Cruiser is also about $100 more than the outgoing 2013 models. A two-wheel drive 2014 FJ Cruiser with a five-speed automatic now starts at $27,990. Four-wheel drive FJ Cruisers continue to be offered in two forms. Trucks fitted with a six-speed manual transmission and full-time four-wheel drive start at $29,300; FJs built with a five-speed automatic and part-time four-wheel drive start at $29,580.

2014 Toyota Sequoia

There isn’t much new with the burly, full-size SUV, but the 2014 Sequoia range does receive new infotainment and audio systems. The 2014 Sequoia SR5 starts at $44,590, and features Entune Audio Plus as standard equipment, although an upgraded Entune system complete with navigation and App Suite functionality is optional. The mid-grade 2014 Sequoia Limited ($53,550) boasts that upgraded Entune suite as standard fare, though a premium JBL sound system is available. Predictably, both the Entune suite with navigation and the JBL system is standard on the top-tier 2014 Sequoia Platinum model ($56,775).

2014 Toyota Sienna

The family-friendly minivan sees only minor changes for 2014, including a standard towing package that boosts the maximum trailer rating to 3500 pounds, and an illuminated cruise control stalk. If that’s not enough, a new CE-grade cargo van also joins the lineup.

The 2014 Sienna CE cargo van is, unsurprisingly, the least expensive model in the 2014 portfolio, coming in at $25,780. The least expensive passenger-carrying Sienna is the 2014 Sienna L seven-passenger model, which sees its base price raised $350 year-over-year to $27,780, including destination. The 2014 Sienna LE with eight passenger seating sees a similar price hike of $365, coming in at $31,350. Add all-wheel drive to an LE, and that price tag jumps to $33,780. Front-wheel drive 2014 Sienna XLE models start at $37,045, while all-wheel drive adds another $2540. The top-tier 2014 Sienna Limited commands $41,100 in front-drive form, while the all-wheel drive variant starts at $42,600.

2014 Toyota Land Cruiser

Toyota says no content changes are in store for its flagship SUV, but the behemoth does see a minor pre-delivery charge price hike of $200. As such, the 2014 Land Cruiser carries a suggested retail price of $79,625.

2014 Toyota Prius V

Toyota’s extended-wheelbase hybrid sees its price increase ever so slightly for 2014 All three 2014 Prius V trim grades see their MSRPs hiked by $100: Prius V Two models now start at $27,560; Prius V Three models start at $28,325; and Prius V Five models now start at $31,205.

Modifications made to 2014 Prius V models are equally slight. All grades receive daytime running lamps as standard equipment, while the panoramic moonroof – previously only available as part of a package on the Prius V Five

— is now a stand-alone option on the 2014 Prius V Three.

2014 Toyota Venza

You asked for it, America. Or, rather, you didn’t ask for it. You didn’t ask for the 2013 Toyota Venza in sunset bronze with a black interior, or in cosmic gray paired with an ivory cabin. As such, those combinations have been struck from the 2014 Venza lineup.

Other revisions made to the 2014 Venza are minute, at best. Base 2014 Venza LE models remain available in both four-cylinder and six-cylinder forms, but receive no notable updates. The mid-grade 2014 Venza XLE ($32,670 base price for a four-cylinder; $34,220 for a V-6 model) gains power-folding rearview mirrors as standard equipment, while the six-cylinder 2014 Venza Limited – which starts at $38,980 for a front-drive model and $40,430 with all-wheel drive, gain the aforementioned mirrors and front and rear parking sensors as standard content.
