The 2011 Sienna is completely redesigned and shifts to a more expressive and dynamic vehicle with a stronger profile, high shoulder character and responsive handling.
The 2011 Sienna’s sportier profile is complemented with distinctive window shapes and a deliberately hidden door slider within the window graphic.
The front has a bold design. Sophisticated headlamps angled higher than the grille lends a confident front presence. The sculpted rear corner separates the Sienna from boxy minivans as it surrounds the functional yet elegant LED taillights.
The interior features upscale quality and elegance, yet every element is logical and functional. The distinctive swept shape of the IP creates the perception of increased personal space for both driver and passenger. Sleek seat designs add flexibility and roominess, while central climate and audio controls are integrated into a single graphic element.
A choice of two engines is available: a 3.5-liter V6 or 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine. Both engines offer the latest in efficient, lightweight technology.
The 3.5-liter V6 generates 266 horsepower and has a 3,500-pound towing capacity. A four-cylinder engine is offered for the first time in the Sienna. With 187 horsepower, the 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine produces responsive power that exceeds some competitors V6 performance.
Both engines are matched with Sienna’s first state-of-the-art, electronically controlled six-speed transmission with sequential shift that provides smooth gear-shift feeling and quiet performance.
The factory-installed Auto Access Seat features a one-touch operation. A seat-mounted ingress/egress switch and a wireless remote control allows for easy and flexible seat operation.
