At Tansky Toyota, we've certainly had our fill of good eats in the greater Dublin and Newark areas, but we'll admit, our taste buds haven't experienced nearly as much as Andrew Zimmern's have. As the host of the Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods, Zimmern has crossed the globe trying out traditional and exotic food. While he's not filming that, the chef and food writer also stars in a web series called Appetite for Life, sampling all the different flavors of the American South. To get from point A to point B, Zimmern gets an assist from a new Toyota vehicle.
Scooting around major cities known for their food like New Orleans and Atlanta, while also hitting up others off the beaten path, Zimmern travels along in a 2013 Toyota Venza in search of some of the more unique fare in the region. There's everything from Beer Can Chicken at a University of Georgia tailgate party, to a creole dish served with turtle meat in remote Slipoff Hollow, Alabama, giving him a wide variety of tastes. Of course, there were some oldies but goodies sprinkled in as well, with wings, grits, biscuits, and gravy making their way in to the mix.
Before all this food talk makes us too hungry, we'll give you the rundown of new features on the totally refreshed Toyota Venza. Earning a mid-cycle refresh, the Venza has an updated look, with new color schemes inside and out, while also keeping drivers connected and entertained with Entune, allowing for smartphone and iPod connectivity. Not only that, but it's also built right here in the U.S.A., at the Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky plant.
Drivers can choose from two different engine options, a standard 2.6-liter I4 engine, or a 3.5-liter V6 that can churn out 268 horsepower. Each edition comes in either front-wheel or all-wheel drive, giving CUV lovers some versatility and power options.
