I was just recently at a Toyota dealership and read some information on towing the Venza. Short story is you can only go 30mph and travel 30 miles before stopping and running the engine on the toad going through the gears, I don't remember the whole thing but at 30mph and 30 miles at a time it was not going to be a go "toad" vehicle.
