Toyota has debuted its fair share of all-new Ford rivals in recent months, a list that includes the reborn Land Cruiser, the 2024 Grand Highlander, and the 2024 Tacoma. Now, that trend continues with the debut of the all-new 2025 Toyota Crown Signia, which is a bit of an odd duck in that it’s sized in a way that makes it something of a rival to both the outgoing Ford Edge and perhaps even the Ford Escape, the latter of which was just treated to a refresh for the 2023 model year.
Sharing a nameplate with the recently-launched, high-riding Crown sedan, the 2025 Toyota Crown Signia takes a more conventional crossover/SUV shape that figures to better appeal to the masses. Technically a mid-size crossover that’s set to replace the Venza in Toyota’s lineup, the Crown Signia shares much of its styling with its sedan counterpart, albeit in a taller package.
The same goes for the interior, which is essentially a carbon-copy of the one present in the Crown sedan, which means that it’s fitted with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and the same size screen for the infotainment system, along with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Buyers can choose from two trim levels as well – the XLE and Limited, with the latter model adding niceties like leather seats, larger wheels, and an 11-speaker JBL sound system.
In terms of powertrains, the 2025 Toyota Crown Signia is available with just one – a naturally aspirated 2.5L four-cylinder gas engine mated with three electric motors, with two of those units residing up front and one in the rear. Combined output comes in at 243 horsepower, which flows to the all four wheels (AWD is standard) via a CVT transmission.
Pricing for the new Crown Signia has yet to be announced, but the new crossover is slated to make its way to dealerships at some point next year.
