Toyota once again stuns audiences with the release of their 2021 Toyota Sienna. As it is there is a lot of excitement surrounding the 2021 model as the vehicle begins the first release year of their newest generation vehicle. Toyota has taken their classic Sienna and given it a brand-new face, along with a series of outstanding features truly fit for the modern age and still has room for the entire family. Its no surprise that the Sienna has already started pulling in awards for the coming year, as it represents an all-new generation of performance, design, and technology that can keep all your passengers endlessly informed and entertained.
Earning its newest title as Green Car of the Year for 2021 is hardly a stretch for the ingenuity that was put in each and every model of the 2021 Toyota Sienna. Each available model comes standard with a hybrid powertrain, making the highest efficiency possible available to more and more buyers. Implementing Toyota’s own Hybrid System II, the Sienna rakes in a massive 245 horsepower making it a shockingly powerful minivan. True to the rise of hybrid engines, the traditionally low gas mileage of Minivans are a thing of the past, as the Sienna hits a new high with 36 miles per gallon across each available trim. On top of amazing gas mileage thanks to hybrid technology, this year’s Sienna is equipped with an all-new series of entertainment tech as well as the 2nd generation of Toyota’s patented safety system, Toyota Safety Sense.
The development and release of the newest Toyota Sienna are a testament to Toyota’s commitment for a more widespread release of hybrid vehicles across North America. For 2021, Toyota has already lined up a massive spread of vehicles available with similar hybrid powertrains as seen in the 2021 Sienna. This year, the brand plans on releasing over nine classic models with hybrid engines including the RAV4, Camry, Avalon, Corolla, Venza, Highlander, and more. Now nearly every Toyota has a hybrid option, and as the technology becomes more and more common, so does the price point for such vehicles. The brand is not only committed to developing more fuel-efficient vehicles, but also increasing their availability to as many people as possible.
This isn’t Toyota’s first win for Green Car of the Year, as the 2020 Toyota Corolla took home the top prize in last year’s competition. The commission in charge of deciding winners is comprised of a highly respected and qualified panel of vehicle and environmental enthusiasts that designate a special “Green” award to multiple vehicles each year in multiple categories. They operate under the umbrella of the Green Car Journal, which exists to generate interest in an environmentally friendly future for the automotive industry through entertainment and informational means. Every year, they select the newest models of vehicles in categories such as greenest truck, greenest SUV, greenest family vehicle, and a top overall winner “Green Car of the Year.” Toyota is proud and excited to help contribute to the rising notoriety of hybrid vehicles across the world.
