  • The 2021 Toyota Sienna is completely redesigned with a new look and a new platform.
  • It’s now offered as a hybrid only, with its gasoline-electric powertrain totaling 243 horsepower.
  • The new Sienna minivan will go on sale by the end of 2020.

    Toyota is taking big chances with the new 2021 Sienna minivan. First and foremost, the van’s bold new styling, which makes the redesigned Sienna possibly the craziest minivan since the 2004 Nissan Quest. And second, Toyota will offer this new model exclusively with a four-cylinder hybrid powertrain, breaking the tradition of previous generations of the Sienna which were all powered by naturally aspirated V-6 engines.

    Each 2021 Sienna will have a 2.5-liter gasoline engine mated to two electric motors to produce a total of 243 horsepower. That’s a drop of 53 horsepower from the outgoing Sienna’s 3.5-liter V6, but the trade-off is an estimated combined fuel economy rating of up to 33 mpg, a significant improvement from 12 mpg. Unlike the hybrid version of the Chrysler Pacifica, the Sienna Hybrid is not a plug-in. The Sienna continues to offer all-wheel drive, as there is an optional configuration that includes a third electric motor that powers the rear wheels. Despite the change, Toyota says the Sienna Hybrid can tow the same 3,500 pounds as before.

    The new Sienna finally migrates to the Toyota Common Architecture (TNGA) that underpins most of the company’s other models. It is a few centimeters longer and slightly wider than its predecessor. It continues with the seven- and eight-seat configurations. Lower-trim models offer a fold-out eighth seat that fits between the second-row captain’s chairs, and higher trim levels have available captain’s chairs that slide further into their tracks to accommodate a reclining-style footrest . Those who use their vans for maximum cargo space should note that the second row seats are no longer removable due to the addition of seat-mounted side airbags.

    The familiar LE, XLE and Limited versions continue, and there’s also a new “sporty” XSE model and a range-topping Platinum version with all the extras. The XSE features 20-inch dark-finished wheels and more aggressive front and rear bumpers. Among the features of the Platinum model are a head-up display, a 360-degree camera view, an on-board vacuum cleaner and even a refrigerated compartment.

    Other standard and optional family features on the Sienna lineup include 18 cupholders, four-zone climate control, seven USB ports, in-car Wi-Fi, rear entertainment system, power sliding doors and tailgate, as well as than a voice amplification system. to help the driver talk to people in the back. A comprehensive set of driver-assist features are standard equipment, including adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring and automated emergency braking.

    Toyota says it has reworked the layout of the dashboard, center stack and center console to eliminate the bus-like driving position that customers have complained about in previous Siennas. A “bridge console” connects the dashboard to the center console between the front seats and provides storage compartments below. The interior materials look premium, as they should, considering the top Limited and Platinum trims will likely hit $50,000 when fully loaded.

    Lower trims will start in the $30,000 range, and the 2021 Toyota Sienna will go on sale by the end of the year.
