Auto show season in is full swing with the New York International Auto Show right around the corner. Toyota will have a few vehicles on display here including the refreshed 2018 Toyota Sienna. Drivers looking for the ultimate family-friendly vehicle can look forward to upgraded safety and technology features from this classic minivan. Let’s dive in for some details.
As the top-selling van in the U.S. for the past two years, the Toyota Sienna is an ideal choice for drivers in need of extra seating and cargo space. Depending on the model chosen – L, LE, SE, XLE or Limited – the Sienna offers seating for seven or eight passengers. It’s set with a powerful 3.5-liter V-6 engine that pumps out 296 horsepower, and it’s still the only van in its class to offer available all-wheel drive.
