2017 Toyota Sienna Performance is Genuinely Groundbreaking
The performance of the 2017 Toyota Sienna puts every other minivan to shame, and even allows it to rival the responsiveness and power of an SUV or crossover. Fitting V6 power as standard and becoming the only minivan in the country to offer all-wheel drive, the Toyota Sienna delivers the type of smooth, engaging ride you’d never expect or receive from its contemporaries.
Power and Efficiency
The 2017 Toyota Sienna boasts space for up to eight passengers or 150 cubic feet of cargo; but, even fully-laden, it still feels energetic and lively thanks to a 3.5L V6 engine. Upgraded for 2017, the new Toyota Sienna powerhouse purrs with up to 296 hp and 263 lb-ft of torque.
That’s more power than the Honda Odyssey (248 hp), Dodge Grand Caravan (283 hp), and the Chrysler Pacifica (287 hp), giving it an appreciable edge over the competition.
Fuel economy is similarly impressive thanks to a Direct Shift-8AT (Automatic Transmission), which achieves up to 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway with front-wheel drive,* or 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway* with all-wheel drive. Fuel stops won’t come as regularly, with efficiency scores allowing for a 440-mile cruising range vs. just 418 in the Chrysler Pacifica.
The spirited drive of 2017 Toyota Sienna helps unite the practicality of a minivan with the performance of an SUV, and that isn’t solely due to a world-class powertrain. With 140 spot welds across the chassis enhancing control, air-fin stabilizers optimizing aerodynamics, and MacPherson suspension with gas-filled shock absorbers keeping the ride composed, the Toyota Sienna is an absolute joy to control.
It’s also the only minivan sold in the America to offer an available all-wheel drive system. In addition to an ideal addition for drivers who like to enjoy each ride to its fullest, the all-wheel drive system will be a welcome necessity for drivers who regularly travel in rain, frost, or snow. Utilizing a state-of-the-art active torque control system, the Toyota Sienna can redistribute power in seconds across all four wheels to ensure sure-footed performance in hazardous road conditions.
For the purest level of performance, you can even opt for the sport-oriented SE model. Looking the part with dashing front and rear bumpers, front and underbody spoilers, a sport mesh front grille, and 19-inch alloy wheels, the SE also includes a sport-tuned suspension for greater control.
