From the outside, the 2018 Toyota Sienna in South Burlington, VT – which is coming to Heritage Toyota – may not look very different from its previous versions. Customers looking for the easiest and most efficient way to move large groups of people and cargo need to only peel back a single layer to see that the new Sienna is the most advanced vehicle in its class. Almost all of the above-the-fold changes to the 2018 Sienna are centered around improving the minivan's safety profile and connectivity options. Like the rest of the 2018 Toyota class of new cars, trucks and SUVs, the 2018 Sienna has been given the Toyota Safety Sense-P system which covers the vehicles in cameras and sensors to help drivers avoid potentially dangerous situations while on the road.
However, the most exciting upgrade made to the 2018 Sienna is the introduction of the Entune 3.0 infotainment system. Toyota was sure to keep all of the integrated systems that have made Entune one of the most-respected infotainment systems in the automotive industry. For the new model year, owners will be able to stay connected to the world though an available 4G high-speed Wi-Fi hotspot that can have up to five devices connected to it simultaneously. Additionally, the mobile internet connection is provided by Verizon and the data plan for the new Sienna can be added to a customer's existing account. Contact Verizon for more billing details. Finally, the 2018 Sienna gets a refreshed front-end that is inspired by the sporty SE trim, giving the minivan a more athletic look.
The 2018 Toyota Sienna maintains the same powertrain that has made the vehicle a top performer in its class. Under the hood of all trim grades is a 3.5-liter, V-6 engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Drivers will have nearly 300 horsepower to work with.
A flexible and adaptable interior is one of the minivan's strongest traits. In the 2018 Toyota Sienna, up to seven or eight people fit in the vehicle, depending how the second row is outfitted. This space can be configured to offer up to 150 cubic-feet.
Not only does the 2018 Toyota Sienna have one of the largest interiors in terms of total volume, but it's also highly functional. Full-size sheets of plywood can fit inside of the 2018 Sienna and for extra capability, it can tow up to 3,500 pounds.
