New engine and transmission delivers class-leading horsepower, plus impressive torque and efficiency in Canada’s only minivan family with AWD models

(TORONTO, ON – October 5, 2016) Whether it’s a family-sized summer road trip or the weekly routine of errands and after school activities, the Toyota Sienna does it all and makes it better – with big style and generous amenities, plus an easy-driving attitude and a new engine/transmission combination for 2017.

“The Sienna proves that a minivan can deliver huge helpings of comfort and style – making it a popular choice for Canadian families on the move, all year round, and the recipient of a 2016 Today’s Parent Approved seal from Today’s Parent magazine,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice-President, Toyota Canada Inc. “For 2017, a new powertrain delivers more driving fun, joining an already impressive list of intuitive and convenient features and technologies.”

New for 2017, all Toyota Sienna models are upgraded with a new, 3.5L V6 featuring D-4S Direct and Port Injection, plus a new Direct Shift 8-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain delivers 296 peak horsepower (up 30 hp from the previous configuration) and more torque – plus better fuel efficiency (10.9L/100km (FWD) city/highway combined) and smoother shifts.

Bold exterior styling features plenty of windows to create a spacious, modern interior maximized by the available dual power moon roof. The Sienna is available in seven- or eight-passenger models that are easy to reconfigure for carrying people or an impressive amount of cargo.

A choice of six models includes two with the extra all-weather confidence of all-wheel-drive, while several available upgrade packages and mobility configurations allow Canadians to choose the perfect Sienna for their lifestyle.

  • 2017 Toyota Sienna 7-Passenger (Starting MSRP: $33,420).
