2011 SIENNA HAULIN’ PEOPLE, HAULIN’ THINGS WITH EASE

It’s roomy, comfortable and quite responsive on the freeway. We’re talking about the 2011 Toyota Sienna Van and its ratings are fantastic.sienna

This loaded people-hauler has been very useful during a recent home swap and vacation trip.

In a recent home move, almost every stitch of clothing and ounce of food was loaded into the Sienna and hauled with no problem. In fact, while unloading, someone remarked on how big the Sienna is–and how much stuff was in there still to bring in.

On Trips Sienna handles well for a big vehicle. You don’t feel like you’re about to tip over, and it’s solid on the expressway. I didn’t really push it (who pushes minivans?) but never experienced much roll. The chassis is very cushy and wasn’t fazed when navigating broken roads.

The steering is nice, and the interior parts look clean. It seemed a bit hard to reach over and adjust the radio channel, but otherwise a great cabin. The overall exterior seems a bit barge-like–but most minivans do. I did really like the taillights, though.

Sienna accelerates with force on the expressway, and the van  is impressive as it builds speed and the revs increas. Gas mileage in the mid to upper twenties per gallon is achievable.

“We believe the minivan is poised to rebound and young families will lead the way.”                                       toyota-sienna-limited-2011-_320x240

The 2011 Sienna is the third-generation of the model and Toyota packed the new design with features that it hopes will set the Sienna apart from other vehicles in its class.

Among the fancier options available are dual-power sliding doors. Inside, the 2011 Toyota Sienna’s completely redesigned cabin boasts significantly more people and cargo space in addition to a bounty of passenger pleasing touches like tri-zone air conditioning, reclining second-row seats with footrests, a 60/40 Split and Stow third-row bench (power activated in the Limited), extended seat travel and loads of convenient configuration stow spaces. A panoramic rearview camera monitor and a 16.4-inch flat-screen television that flips open from the ceiling is available. Passengers can view a movie on the full screen or go into a split-screen setting and view a movie on one side while playing a video game on the other. Be sure to recline the second row seats with footrests while enjoying yourself!Toyota-Sienna-2011-Interior

The Sienna boasts wider doors than previous models and can accommodate up to eight passengers. The second-row seats can be shifted forward behind the front seats, and the third-row seats can be stowed flat, creating a cargo-carrying area that’s about eight feet long and four feet wide, Toyota said.

Sienna will be available in five variations, including a sporty SE and a high-end Limited edition. Toyota is offering two engine types for the Sienna – a 2.7-liter, four-cylinder engine or a 3.5-liter, 266-horsepower V6.

The Sienna hits showrooms in February, although Toyota won’t say yet what its starting price will be.

It will be priced lower than the current model, however. On the company’s Web site, the Sienna is listed as starting at $24,540.
