History of Excellence

Each generation of the Sienna has served as a significant stepping-stone in the development of today’s award-winning Sienna. The original Sienna was built at Toyota Motor Manufacturing in Georgetown, Kentucky, and was based on an extended and modified Camry platform, giving it a car-like feel. Assembly was transferred to Princeton, Indiana, in 2004 and has been there ever since. The Sienna has evolved from a family-friendly favorite to a beautiful, innovative adventure vehicle over four generations. The Sienna continues to improve as its design adapts to changing consumer needs, making it fit for all types of drivers to take on the world.


Upgrades to the inside and appearance of the Sienna have been made since its debut to support a wider range of activities and lifestyles than the traditional van. All-wheel drive is now offered in all trim levels, which has helped to broaden the vehicle’s adventurous appeal by allowing consumers to drive confidently practically anywhere. Certain features, such as the optional 1,500-watt inverter, are great for camping and other outdoor activities when drivers need to power electronics while on the road. The Sienna’s tow hitch, which can tow up to 3,500 pounds, and roof racks make it as capable on long excursions as it is in town. The new Sienna, especially the sportier Sienna XSE, looks the part with an SUV-inspired appearance. The available super-long-slide seats and captain’s chairs with built-in ottomans in the third row of the Sienna slide back for added comfort or move up to make more room for goods or passengers. The Sienna offers a feature called Driver Easy Speak that allows you to communicate more clearly. When you press a button on the touchscreen display, the built-in microphone sends your voice to the rear speakers, allowing everyone on board to hear you.

The Newest and Best

With a manufacturer-estimated combined range rating of 35 miles per gallon on all-wheel drive, the hybrid-only Sienna, coming in 2021, is one of the most fuel-efficient seven- or eight-passenger vans on the market. The new Sienna blends the practical qualities of a van with a more modern, personalized driving experience, based on the needs of today’s drivers. While the Sienna has seen numerous changes over the years, technological advancements have had a huge impact on the vehicle’s attributes. The Sienna, like all Toyota cars, comes standard with a number of safety features, including driver and front passenger airbags, anti-lock brakes, Vehicle Stability Control, and Traction Control. Furthermore, the Sienna can be equipped with cutting-edge safety technologies such as radar detection in the cruise control system, blind-spot monitoring, and panoramic cameras integrated into the grill, outside mirrors, and rear hatch.
