Subtle exterior styling refinements give the Toyota Sienna a more upscale look, with a revised front grille, and new slimmer headlight units with an advanced design for the Sienna SE and Limited grades. New LED daytime running lamps give the Sienna a more aggressive appearance.
A stiffer platform, with 142 additional spot welds, translates to a driving experience unexpected from a minivan.

This combination gives the Sienna confident power for urban trekking or highway merging while using fuel efficiently.
Combined with the standard Tow Prep Package, the V-6 gives the Sienna a 3,500-pound towing capacity.
