2018 Toyota Sienna Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
The 2018 Toyota Sienna gets a big update that adds technology and safety features to the self-proclaimed "swagger wagon." It will continue to be offered in five trim levels: L, LE, SE, XLE and Limited. Last year, the Sienna got a brand-new powertrain; for 2018, the cabin and safety equipment play catch-up. The 2018 Sienna will arrive at dealerships in the fall of 2017.
Exterior
The front of the Sienna has been tweaked to incorporate a larger grille and larger foglights, giving the Sienna a more aggressive nose that more closer matches the rest of the Toyota lineup. Side skirts taken from the SE trim are now standard on all trim levels, and there are three new paint colors (with epic names to match): Toasted Walnut Pearl, Alumina Jade Metallic and Parisian Night Pearl.
 
Interior
Model-year 2018 brings a technology infusion to the Sienna, starting with the new Entune 3.0 system that will be standard on all trim levels; it also offers more connected vehicle technology than ever before. LE, SE and XLE trims also add Wi-Fi hot spot capability via a 4G LTE connection that can support up to five devices at once.
 
Additional technology enhancements include five USB charging ports spread throughout the three rows, an updated rear entertainment system that offers streaming capability from Android devices and an around-view monitor system available on Limited Premium models only.

Under the Hood
The drivetrain is a carryover from last year; the 296-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 makes 263 pounds-feet of torque and is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, and the Sienna is still the only minivan in the segment to offer available all-wheel drive.
 
Safety
The Sienna sneaks in under the wire as a part of Toyota's initiative to include automatic emergency braking as standard equipment in the vast majority of its vehicles by 2018. Toyota Safety Sense-P will be standard on all trim levels of the Sienna, and it adds much more than just emergency braking: TSS-P includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, full-speed adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist and automatic high beams.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
