If we can rely on the latest reports, the 2021 Toyota Sienna is about to come redesigned. The popular minivan has been one of the class leaders for years. The original model came more than two decades ago, while the current model represents the third generation of it. This, the third generation came a long time ago, in 2010. Despite the age, it is still among the best models in the class, thanks to a powerful engine, all-wheel drive, generous interior space, and many more things. Still, the upcoming redesign will make it even better.
The new model will get a new platform, as well as a more modern cabin, attractive styling and more. Also, we hope Toyota will finally offer a hybrid version of this minivan. The 2021 Toyota Sienna is still waiting for the official confirmation, but our reliable insiders claim this is a certain thing. Expect to see it sometime in the next year.
2021 Toyota Sienna Redesign
This redesign will definitely bring a large portion of novelties. The current model has been around for almost a decade, which indicates outdated technologies and design solutions in many aspects. The first thing that comes to mind is the platform. The current model still rides on an older-generation K platform, which is generally very good and extremely reliable, but lack in some aspects, give today’s industry standards. This particularly refers to driving dynamics and overall ride quality. This is where we expect to see a lot of benefits from the new TNGA platform.
All models that switched to this architecture have significantly improved driving characteristics, so we don’t expect anything different from the 2021 Toyota Sienna. Additionally, we expect a new model to be lighter, which should provide better mpg ratings as well.
2021 Toyota Sienna Exterior
The upcoming redesign will bring new styling as well. We have no doubt that the 2021 Toyota Sienna will feature much more attractive look. As we are talking about a minivan, the overall shape will definitely remain the same. Furthermore, we are about to see pretty similar dimensions. The current model measures 119.3 inches in wheelbase, while the overall length goes over 200 inches. The 2021 Toyota Sienna should remain quite similar in this aspect.
On the other side, count on a completely new suit, which will be adapted to the company’s latest design language. However, it is still unclear whether the new front face will take inspiration from models like new Camry, or we are about to see a lot of influence from new SUVs, such as the redesigned RAV4 or the small crossover C-HR.
2021 Toyota Sienna Interior
The cabin has always been the strongest point of this minivan. Generous interior space and plenty of comfort are just some of the things you can count on with this one. However, a ten-year-old design definitely started to show the age in terms of aesthetics, so the dashboard and the rest of the cabin looks a little bit old. It is still far away from outdated, by younger rivals look fresher. Therefore, the upcoming redesign is about to bring a completely new cabin design. Of course, this will include not just new aesthetics, but also finer, better-quality materials etc.
We also count on a lot of novelties in terms of tech features, though we have to say that the current model already features a quite long list of tech goodies, including latest smartphone connectivity features like Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa etc. Still, we count on updates of the current infotainment system and several more interesting novelties.
2021 Toyota Sienna Engine
During this quite long production cycle, the current model has been updated for a couple of times. One of these updates included powertrain as well. So, the Sienna is pretty strong in this aspect, even some rivals much younger. It comes with a well-known 3.5-liter V6 engine, which delivers 296 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque. Such amount of power ensures pretty strong acceleration, while the smooth ride is guaranteed by a new 8-speed automatic transmission. The new 2021 Toyota Sienna will probably continue with the same engine, though we expect to see updates in terms of power and efficiency. Of course, we have no doubt that the AWD version will be in the offer as well.
On the other side, we hope that Toyota will finally offer a hybrid version of this great minivan. Some rivals, such as Chrysler Pacifica, already have such versions in the offer. So, we expect that the Japanese manufacturer will go in the same way.
2021 Toyota Sienna Release Date and Price
We are still waiting for the official confirmation, but there’s no doubt that the 2021 Toyota Sienna will hit the market sometime in the next year. In terms of the price, we don’t expect bigger changes compared to the current model, which starts at around 31.000 dollars.
