The “fourth” Toyota Sienna, which debuted in the US a year ago, has acquired the first Woodland Special Edition. It will go on sale in the fall to show that the eight-seater minivan is ready for “outdoor adventures.” To do this, there is a plug-in four-wheel drive, increased ground clearance, 18-inch wheels, roof rails with crossbars, a towing device designed for 1588 kg, a standard navigator, a JBL audio system with 12 speakers, a 1500 W socket and something else.
The body is finished in the exclusive Cement gray (pictured), but can be swapped out for Midnight Black Metallic, also with dark chrome accents. How much the clearance has grown is not indicated (“in the base” 162 mm). The three-engine hybrid unit with the ECVT CVT produces 248 hp, consuming 6.5 l / 100 km.
Sienna is available to Americans in LE ($ 34,460), XLE ($ 39,750), XSE ($ 42,000), Limited ($ 46,700), Platinum ($ 49,900) trim levels. The tailgate badge says the Woodland version is based on the XLE variant, which charges $ 41,750 when all-wheel drive.
The TNGA GA-K platform (the Toyota Highlander is built on it) “provides exemplary collision protection”, but the standard equipment includes the “comprehensive” Toyota Safety Sense 2.0. ToyotaCare covers normal plant maintenance for two years. Each Woodland Special Edition will include a $ 250 donation to the National Endowment for Environmental Education (NEEF) for the Environment.
The Woodland version is equipped by default with “captain” seats in the second row, so there are seven seats in the cabin. Finishing – combined (fabric / leatherette). An 11.6-inch center display is considered an option. Climate control – three- or four-zone.

The Japanese did not turn the Sienna into a cross-van a la KIA Carnival, which they may regret. Minivan demand in the United States has been steadily declining. If in the period 2011-2017. more than 100,000 cars were sold a year, then in 2020 only 42,885 (-30,700) were sold. However, Honda Odyssey, which also does not look like a crossover, found 83,409 owners last year. It looks like her uncontested hybridity is playing against Sienna.
