Changes for the 2016 Sienna subtle but very effective
Changes for the 2016 Sienna
One of the most popular Toyota vehicles of all time should be arriving to the Toyota of Naperville showroom in the very near future. Toyota engineers have not made many changes to the upcoming 2016 Toyota Sienna minivan. The same flexible interior and fuel-efficient platform that has made the Sienna the top of the class choice will remain available for the new model-year. Among thechanges for the 2016 Sienna, are an across the board improvement the Toyota Entune infotainment system as well as the addition of the Siri Eyes Free System for Apple iPhone users. Also returning for the 2016 version is the Sienna Outdoor Package featuring a new roof rack, floor mats and door sill protectors.
The impressive capability of the 2016 Toyota Sienna comes from its tried-and-true powertrain. Under the hood of each Toyota minivan is a 3.5-liter, V-6 that easily produces 266 horsepower and is paired with a very precise six-speed automatic transmission. Not only does this transmission allow for impressive fuel economy scores, but owners will also be able to tow up to 3,500 pounds. Most of the five available trim grades for the 2016 Sienna will feature the Tow Prep Package as standard equipment. Additionally, the 2016 Sienna remains one of the only minivans in production to offer all-wheel drive.
Growing families will be especially enamored with some of the changes made to the 2016 Sienna. The LATCH system is a government required mechanism that appears in all Toyota vehicle to safely secure children’s car seats. Toyota engineers have made excellent use of the space provided by the new Sienna providing four LATCH locations for parents or child care-givers to use. Whether it is to ask passengers if they would like to stop for ice cream (the answer is always yes) or to ask those in back to keep the noise to a lower roar, it can be difficult for a driver to project his or her voice all the way to the back. Toyota is reintroducing the Driver Easy Speak system which uses the same microphone for Toyota Entune voice controls to override stereo system’s speakers.
Some models can have the Dual View Entertainment Center added to the equipment list. This innovative option offers two viewable displays which can be connected to a Blu-Ray player or up to two different input sources. Wireless headphones and a remote control are also available accessories.
