he year 2019 will bring us some good news from Toyota. Apparently, this Japanese brand has been planning to add a new member to its series of family minivans. It will be the new Sienna that should hit the showrooms as a 2019 Toyota Sienna model. It will appear with some significant improvements and changes, especially in terms of its body design.
When we talk about the exterior of the 2019 Toyota Sienna, we can say that the Japanese manufacturers will really do their best to create a well-equipped and functional family car. It has not been confirmed yet whether Toyota will use its TNGA platform on this model, but we know that it will definitely use lightweight materials in its chassis construction. Such a reduced weight of the new Sienna will only improve its acceleration, performance and fuel economy. This family minivan will undergo some significant upgrades and modifications when it comes to design. It can be said that even appears futuristic. In the front fascia, you can expect a brand-new grille. The front bumper will also be upgraded and you will notice the LED headlights with daytime running lights as well. We expect more information about the new Sienna’s look to come soon.
The word ‘futuristic’ that we have already used in terms of exterior can also be applied when we talk about the interior of the 2019 Toyota Sienna. This next-generation minivan will definitely provide everything you need during those long family trips and the younger members will especially be satisfied. The Japanese company significantly upgraded the technology inside this model and you can expect the latest infotainment and entertainment system. This will include options such as satellite radio, navigation system, DVD system, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, USB ports and automatic air-conditioning. The spacious and comfortable cabin of the new Sienna will provide three rows of seats for seven passengers. The seats will be adjustable and covered in leather. Other high-quality materials will also be used for the rest of the interior. The driver will also get a telescopic steering wheel and numerous safety systems and driver assist features.
The current 3.5-liter V6 under the hood of the Sienna model has proved as a great success. Such an engine could deliver 266 horsepower and 245 pound-feet of torque. It was mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. That’s why, it has been speculated that Toyota will not change anything when it comes to engine of the 2019 Sienna. However, a rumor has it that the previous six-speed might be replaced by a brand-new eight-speed automatic transmission.

It is perhaps too early to talk about the release date, but the 2019 Toyota Sienna should be expected to hit the showrooms in early 2019. The estimated price of this minivan starts around $30,000.
