The 2018 Toyota Sienna Brings Swagger to Baltimore
Although the amount of crossover SUVs occupying American roadways is steadily increasing, there will always remain a demand for the classic minivan, which offers more interior space and entry access than any SUV body style could ever hope to achieve. And if there’s a market for it, Toyota will always strive to position itself at the pinnacle of it. Featuring a slightly updated aesthetic for the 2018 model year, the Toyota Sienna once again sets out to become America’s definitive “Swagger Wagon.”
The 2018 Toyota Sienna is the ONLY new minivan in the U.S. that is available with All-Wheel Drive (AWD). When it comes down to making sure you can pick up your children from school on a snow day, this feature sets the Sienna apart from the Honda Odyssey and Chrysler Pacifica. You also won’t have to worry about merging onto the Baltimore beltway, thanks to the Sienna’s 3.5 liter V6, boasting an impressive 296 horsepower. If you opt for the sportier SE trim Sienna, you’ll also receive improved handling thanks to its tuned suspension.
Aesthetically, the 2018 Toyota Sienna looks much more aggressive than previous models. The entire front end has been redesigned, featuring more angular headlights and vent opening. The SE model even features the sporty honeycomb grille Toyota has been placing on many of its new models. There’s even new optional 19’’ gunmetal rims-further enhancing the Sienna’s aggressive look!
Inside, the 2018 Toyota Sienna features some modest, yet welcome improvements. The 7-inch touch screen infotainment system now runs the Entune 3.0 app suite-a feature that debuted on the 2018 Camry. Entune 3.0 allows drivers to run a variety of applications, including navigation, Yelp, and real-time traffic alerts. Keeping with the screen theme, there’s also an optional widescreen LCD display, complete with a Blu-Ray player. Never again will parents have to resolve their children’s disputes over what to watch on a long road trip, thanks to the screen’s ability to split and stream two separate videos. Toyota is all about reducing the amount of unnecessary stress parents must endure whenever they take a family vacation. That’s why they also included 5 USB ports spread across all three rows-no more arguing about who gets to charge their phone.
When it comes to accessibility, Toyota is committed to offering products catered towards individuals with mobility issues. The 2018 Toyota Sienna continues this tradition, with two trims (LE & XLE) being offered with Toyota’s Auto Access Seat. This seat is the industry’s first 90-degree power lift up seat, allowing for disabled individuals to secure themselves in place with the push of a button. Jerry’s Toyota is committed to offering Auto Access Seat equipped Toyota Sienna’s all year long, with multiple models to choose from in our inventory.
