With a revised interior and a refreshed front end, Toyota hopes to draw families to its 2015 Sienna minivan. The starting price, however, might have them thinking twice: The 2015 Sienna starts at $29,485, including an $885 destination charge. That's a price increase of $1,680 over the 2014 Sienna L base model ($27,805).
However, the base Sienna's price is less than the 2015 Honda Odyssey ($29,805) and the 2015 Chrysler Town & Country ($30,990). The 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan has the Sienna beat on price, though. The Grand Caravan SE base trim starts at $24,790.
While the Sienna's looks are new for 2015, the engine remains the same as the 2014 model year. The 266-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. A 2015 all-wheel-drive Sienna gets an EPA-estimated 16/22 mg city/highway; the 2014 Sienna with all-wheel drive earned 16/23 mpg.
The 2015 model can seat eight or seven passengers, depending on the seating configuration. The Sienna is the only minivan to offer optional all-wheel drive, which is available on the LE, XLE and Limited trims.
The LTD Premium top trim with all-wheel drive will set buyers back $47,035. That's a price premium of $1,605 over the top-line 2015 Odyssey Touring Elite ($45,430) and $6,045 over the 2015 Town & Country Limited Platinum.
