Most 2011 Toyota Siennas Get Price Hike

791202660-1425510869600

Toyota might say the 2011 Sienna minivan costs less than the 2010, but this year’s base model comes standard with a four-cylinder versus last year’s V-6, and the 2011 starts at $24,260 versus $24,540 for the 2010 base model. None of the prices include an $800 destination charge.

Every other trim level gets a noticeable increase.

If you want all-wheel drive, you have to select the LE trim level with the V-6 engine, and it starts at $31,130 for 2011 compared with the $29,235 for the identical trim level last year.

We’re not saying the price increases aren’t justified by the all-new design and new standard features, which include three-zone air conditioning, cruise control, windshield deicer and a six-speed automatic transmission. We just don’t like to be told something costs less when all things aren’t equal.

The all-new SE trim level with a sport-tuned suspension and dark, mesh grille starts at $30,550. All trim level pricing is listed below. V-6 models arrive at dealers in February, with four-cylinders arriving in April.
