Toyota updates 2013 Sienna, drops four-cylinder engine

2012 Toyota Sienna SE

Toyota has always offered a four-banger option for its Sienna people hauler. But recently, Toyota has announced that they’ll be dropping the 2.7L four-cylinder option for the updated 2013 Sienna. That means that the only option available for the 2013 Sienna is the brand’s standard 3.5L V6 good for 266hp.

And the reason being was that the four-cylinder just wasn’t up to the task of providing better fuel economy than the V6. The 187hp four-cylinder was only capable of providing 19/24 mpg city/highway while the V6 powered Sienna gets 18/25 mpg.

Other updates include some changes to the interior fabrics, which will be made easier-to-clean, as well as the standardization of power seats and a three-zone climate control system for the LE trim.

Prices have slightly increased, as the base Sienna goes up by $1,390 to $25,450, while the top-end Limited demands $41,240.
