toyota has given the sienna minivan a complete redesign for the 2021 model year that makes the aggressive-looking family hauler look even more aggressive. it comes in either front- or all-wheel drive configurations, and unlike previous versions, the sienna is only offered with a new hybrid powertrain—a move that toyota says is in response to buyers who wanted better fuel economy and instantaneous torque. the 2021 sienna starts at $35,635 and reaches just over $50,000 for the all-wheel-drive platinum model.
a 245-hp 2.5-liter inline-four paired with two electric motors powers the new minivan. the 2021 model is nearly a second slower to 60 mph than the previous model with its 296-hp v-6, but it has significantly better epa-rated fuel economy at 36 mpg, compared to 21 mpg for the front-wheel-drive 2020 sienna. the 2021 sienna comes standard with front-wheel drive, though all-wheel drive is available, which adds another electric motor at the rear.
the sienna's $35,635 starting price is for the base front-wheel-drive le model (the standard l on the 2020 model is no longer offered), which comes equipped with the stowable middle seat. upgrade to all-wheel drive, and the price rises to $37,635. the next step up is the xle, which can be had with the eight-seat configuration with the stowable middle seat, though it can also be ordered with seven seats, and it starts at $40,925 for both options. all-wheel drive costs $42,925.
the sporty xse model with 20-inch wheels and unique front and rear bumpers starts at $43,175 with front-wheel drive and $43,935 with all-wheel drive. loaded limited ($47,875) and platinum ($51,075) models are also available, and they have a standard jbl sound system. all-wheel drive costs an additional $1800 for the limited and $560 for the top-of-the-line platinum model.
the 2021 toyota sienna will arrive at dealerships next month starting at $35,635 for the base le model and topping out at $51,635 for a platinum model with all-wheel drive.
