3 Reasons Not to Overlook the 2017 Toyota Sienna

By Justin Cupler | December 1st, 2016


People instinctively yawn when they think about driving a minivan, but there are a few distinctly good reasons not to fall asleep on the idea of a 2017 Toyota Sienna. As far as family-haulers go, this sleek model has all the power, comfort, and safety you want when hopping from one kid’s practice to another.

  1. The Engine

Since the recent revival of this vehicle segment, Toyota took the time to refresh the heart of the engine for the 2017 model. It comes equipped with a four-cam 3.5-liter V-6 engine and has both port and direct fuel injection, improving the output from the previous 266 horsepower to a substantial 296 horsepower. That’s some impressive power, especially when you pair it with the available All-Wheel Drive.


  1. The Cargo Capacity

Not only can you seat up to eight in this bad boy, but you also still have room to stow luggage or gear in the far back or make use of the folding second- or third-row seats for even larger cargo. There are pleasing nooks and crannies scattered around the vehicle to keep distractions for the kiddos or to organize your life.  And Toyota knows how large their seating is, so they added an intercom for the front and third row of seats to communicate more easily.

  1. The Safety Tech

With Toyota, safety never takes the back seat. The 2017 Sienna has spectacular safety aids like adaptive cruise control and automated emergency braking for unexpected stops, stability and traction control for all weather, automatic headlamp high-beam control, a wide-angle backup camera and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert to give you extra eyes in those hard to see areas. All this is available so you can be more in control when it counts.


The 2017 Toyota Sienna is a wake-up call for all minivans. This model shows the pack what extraordinary power, space, and safety looks like in a quality minivan. Browse our inventory online now and then set up a time to test drive this spectacular vehicle.
