2018 Toyota Sienna . Toyota updates its popular minivan, Sienna, and it will be unveiled at next month’s New York International Auto Show. The update will give the minivan plenty of new modern technologies as well as new exterior design. The powertrain will not be touched, though. But it is not a big problem since Sienna had received more powerful engine last year.
2018 Toyota Sienna Specifications
At the front, the updated Sienna 2018 still features the same face like other Toyota models. However, this time the grille is refined. It is now larger and lower, giving the car a sportier vibe. In addition, the car also gets wider fog lights and three choices of exterior colors, Toasted Walnut Pearl, Alumina Jade Metallic and Parisian Night Pearl.
The 2018 Toyota Sienna exterior facelift is clearly very mild, but it is a whole different world inside the cabin. A brand new Toyota Entune 3.0 unit will be the star in all trim levels of the new Sienna. This infotainment system comes with Connected Navigation Scout GPS link with Moving Maps and turns by turn application for better ad easier navigation.
For customers that buy the middle level trim LE, SE, and XLE, Entune Audio Plus will be added to the car. This system comes with Safety Connect emergency system as well as Wi-Fi with 4G LTE connection. Meanwhile, Entune 3.0 Premium JBL Audio System with the quality sound system and Dynamic Navigation system is reserved for the range-topping Limited trim level.
The premium audio system comes as standard in Limited trim, however, SE and XLE trim buyers can also opt to get it. The SE trim level also will get unique laminated front windshield while the range-topping Limited gets front row side glass.
In addition to the facelift and technology updates, the 2018 refreshed Sienna is also equipped with the various safety system, ranging from lane departure alert, pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, automatic high beams, to full-speed adaptive cruise control.

Moreover, the cabin also has 5 USB ports, placed in several different spots. As a result, occupants in all three rows can connect their smartphone to the USB port.
Engine – 2018 Toyota Sienna Facelift
Since Sienna’s engine was just updated for 2017 model year, there will be no changes in the powertrain department this time. It means, the refreshed Sienna will get its power from the 3.5 L V6 engine that delivers 296 HP and 263-pound feet of torque. The power is boosted from 266 HP and 245 HP thanks to last year’s update.
Furthermore, the old 6-speed automatic transmission also has been replaced by a new 8-speed automatic gearbox since 2017 model year. All-wheel drive system also will be available. There is no information yet on the fuel economy, but to refresh your memory, the 2017 model’s economy is 19 mpg city, 27 mpg highway and 22 mpg combined. We can expect the new car’s fuel economy to fall somewhere around that, if not better.
