The famous minivan has been without bigger changes for a while, so we are expecting to see 2019 Toyota Sienna with lot of them. A familiar nameplate has been in use for more than two decades. So far, we have seen three generations of it. Still, the current model is pretty old. It came in 2010 and, despite few updates, definitely needs a redesign in near future to remain competitive.
So, the next year could bring something interesting to us. The new generation should continue in the same manner, but with lot of improvement. First of all, expect new model to get a new platform, as well as a completely new styling. Of course, this redesign should include numerous new design solutions and technologies. The 2019 Sienna should be ready to hit the market by the end of 2018.
2019 Toyota Sienna redesign
This redesign is about to come after nine years of production of the current generation. So, we can expect a lot of novelties. So far, this minivan has always been related to Camry and we have no doubt that the new one will continue in the same way. The famous sedan has been redesigned last year, which means that the new platform for 2019 Toyota Sienna is ready.
Instead of an older K platform, the new model will switch to the new TNGA, characterized by massive improvements in terms of dynamics and overall driving quality. Of course, the architecture will be in this case tweaked for a bit, but we could expect similar base characteristics, especially when it comes to mechanics. On the other side, the 2019 Toyota Sienna will come with its recognizable minivan body style, with similar proportions but completely new styling.
2019 Toyota Sienna styling
Styling has always been the most notable thing of every redesign. This one won’t be exception at all. The new model is about to adopt the brand’s newest design language. This means a familiar face to one that we can see on the new Camry and various other newcomers from the world’s best-selling car brand. Compared to the outgoing model, proportions should remain similar. This means similar overall shape, though we could see a little bit sharper lines and better aerodynamics. On the inside, we could expect more room, thanks to the better use of space. Also, expect a completely new interior design, highlighted by completely new dashboard, full of new technologies.
Just like in Camry, a long list of safety system should be part of the standard equipment. Those are safety systems like a standard a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, a full-speed radar cruise control, lane departure warning with steering assist, and automatic high beam assist. On the other side, things like active blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, intelligent clearance sonar, and rear cross-traffic braking should be offered as optional features.
2019 Toyota Sienna engines
The famous V6 engine for this minivan has been updated recently. So, we have no doubt that the same unit will continue for the 2019 Toyota Sienna. It is a familiar 3.5-liter V6 engine, which for this occasion delivers around 296 horsepower. Also, we don’t expect changes in terms of transmission. So, 2019 Toyota Sienna should continue with the same 8-speed automatic. In the future, it is quite possible to see some hybrid powertrain in the offer as well.
2019 Toyota Sienna release date and price
Although we still don’t have official information, we expect that 2019 Toyota Sienna will come by the end of the year. When it comes to the price, the current model goes around 30.000 dollars in its base variant and we expect similar numbers from the new-generation model.
