2015 Toyota Sienna Price Jumps $1,680 Over 2014 Model


With a revised interior and a refreshed front end, Toyota hopes to draw families to its 2015 Sienna minivan. The starting price, however, might have them thinking twice: The 2015 Sienna starts at $29,485, including an $885 destination charge. That's a price increase of $1,680 over the 2014 Sienna L base model ($27,805).

However, the base Sienna's price is less than the 2015 Honda Odyssey ($29,805) and the 2015 Chrysler Town & Country ($30,990). The 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan has the Sienna beat on price, though. The Grand Caravan SE base trim starts at $24,790.

While the Sienna's looks are new for 2015, the engine remains the same as the 2014 model year. The 266-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. A 2015 all-wheel-drive Sienna gets an EPA-estimated 16/22 mg city/highway; the 2014 Sienna with all-wheel drive earned 16/23 mpg.

The 2015 model can seat eight or seven passengers, depending on the seating configuration. The Sienna is the only minivan to offer optional all-wheel drive, which is available on the LE, XLE and Limited trims.

The LTD Premium top trim with all-wheel drive will set buyers back $47,035. That's a price premium of $1,605 over the top-line 2015 Odyssey Touring Elite ($45,430) and $6,045 over the 2015 Town & Country Limited Platinum.

Any justification for the big jump or just a flat out price increase? Usually manufacturers can justify it with formerly optional equipment becoming standard.


They charge the price they do because it's a high quality safe and reliable vehicle, and plenty of people are willing to pay the price. People who want justification, who can't afford it should look elsewhere.


Where is the 8 speed automatic Toyota?


Minivan used to be a car for large family. Today, it is a luxury to have one. will die



Considering it's 4th place in sales (out of only 4 major competitors)...no, I guess people aren't willing to pay that price


Usually you are hard pressed to find that base model at dealers - at least here in California


tr6: You've clearly never test driven one. We did in 2010. Cheapest, crappiest, hard-plastickiest interior of ANY of the minivans we looked at. I don't doubt at all that it took an additional $1700 to fix that mess...


@card13 & wow, you need to look at other brands. Maybe a diesel vw rouan....


What's a rouan?


Anyone who says sienna isn't hands down the best should just stay off the road. Swagger wagon!!!



Did you test the 2010 or 2011 back in calendar year 2010?


We have a 2012 Sienna and it is not a quality product. The interior is made of cheap plastic and there are many rattles from the seats and the sliding doors. The body doesn't have the sturdy heft of the Honda Pilot we had before, or of any of the Nissans we have.
Toyota can up their prices but there are better built alternatives available.


Stop whining and trade it in.


Hi J. We looked at the 2010.



That probably explains why I cannot quite agree to the comment about the interior.

They did redesigned the Sienna for model year 2011 and I tested the 2013 model. I am not sure if anything was changed between the 11 and 13 though.


For what it's worth, it seems like the interior of all models has been upgraded for the 2015 - the instrument panel is completely redesigned as is the center stack. I agree with folks that the 2011-2014 had terribly cheap interior materials and fitments, even in the 40 grand Limited models.

need a van

for all of you commenting about how suck this van.. tell me if you have driven the newest model or did a research about the difference between the 2014 and2015.. I almost bought the 2014 when I saw the 2015 on the internet while at the dealer shop.. at least for the SE everything has been upgraded and SE are now all leader with better options than the 14 and too much to mention here. And believe me.. I drove test all Van from all Makers.. Honda and Toyota are the best bang for the quality you will get.. but Toyota is far better in style and amenities than Honda..in my opinion between the two.. hope this helps...

Sienna Family

We had a 2001 Sienna. Great van! We drove it to 220,000 miles and sold it for $5K. Now we have a 2006 Sienna. It's not as good as the 2001 and it has 150K on it. The Sienna between 2011 and 2014 is terrible! Cheap interior. Two star crash rating for the passenger. But, we're very excited for the 2015 Sienna. It looks like it took Toyota 4 years to figure out how to make it right. I'm guessing the crash rating will compare to Odyssey adding an 8th airbag and larger airbags. And, looking at the new dashboard construction and layout makes me hopefully for a better made interior. Thank you Toyota for making those changes. I'm willing to spend an extra $1700 for better quality and safety.

What is the release date of the 2015?


If you want an AWD van, then there is no other game in town. But for their 2wd drive versions, they can't compete. IMHO, the best bang for your buck still goes to the Town and Country. Saying that, I traded ours in for an AWD Sienna because I love the van form factor, but needed AWD.


AWD 2015 Siennas are trickling into dealers ... why is there one in Phoenix???


Raise it Higher this 2015 AWD Limited Platinum was a steal at the price we found in Hurst, TX for the new year :) Thanks Freeman Toyota for the 0% for 4 years to make it even better ... a free set of Floor mats seems like it would have put the Cherry on the Cake but I can get those later :P
