2021 Toyota Sienna comes as electric mini-van, for the first time. Although Toyota has not confirmed it yet, Car News Instagram profile confirmed it, offering leaked photos of the completely new model. Knowing that Toyota goes on hybridization and inevitably will offer many more electric models in the future, we have no doubts that this time we are right.
- The model comes with a hybrid engine
- The cabin could come with great features
- The design has not been changed for a long time
- We are not sure in the price of the new version
On leaked photos that journalists could see 2021 Toyota Sienna seems the same as before. We used on its simple design, with the large and cubic rear end and Toyota-like front bumper. Since they do not have reasons to change it, we do not expect any differences from the current model.
They have not said much about the changes inside of 2021 Toyota Sienna. However, we know that the current model has excellent features in the cabin, including climate zone, electrical seats, and more; we could expect the same in the new version.
2021 Toyota Sienna Engine
It is hard to predict the engine that the new 2021 Toyota Sienna will have. Rumors said that we should expect the hybrid Sienna for the first time in history. They had reasons to upgrade their model. Chrysler Pacifica has already come as an electrified model.
On the other hand, the manufacturer has announced earlier that they will offer an old crossover with a fully electrified engine. We are in doubt if it will be Toyota Venza or Sienna. However, another question is which engine will come as a base of the hybrid model. It could be a well-known 3.5-liter V6 that they used in Toyota Highlander Hybrid already.
On the other side, it could be a 2.5-liter four-inline, for the same reasons – they have already tried on previous models. Current Toyota RAV4 Prime uses it as optional, in combination with a lithium-ion battery, and produces 302 horsepower, which is more than 296 in Sienna. However, why will they no combine 2.7-liter four-cylinder or optional V6 engine with the electric motor?
They have used that engine in Sienna before so that it could be a great addition to the class. Thanks to the transition to the new TNGA platform, the new Sienna will be much lightweight, meaning every engine will have an excellent performance there.
2021 Toyota Sienna Release Date and Price
If everything we said is correct, we could see the first 2021 Toyota Sienna as a hybrid mini-van very soon. However, it is not for sure if they will significantly change the price.
Although having a hybrid engine as competition is a great deal, we cannot say that the rate higher than $30,000 will be very competitive. However, be patient to the fall when they expect that new vehicles will be on the market.
