2021 Toyota Sienna Will Miss Two Sweet Features At Launch

Industry News / Comments

Supplier issues force back the refrigerator and vacuum cleaner.

The 2021 Toyota Sienna minivan made its debut earlier this year, sporting an all-hybrid powertrain lineup for the first time in the model's history. Toyota's hybrid drivetrain combines a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with two electric motors to produce 243 horsepower, which is the same amount found in the Highlander Hybrid. Not only is the hybrid setout nearly as powerful as the V6 it replaces, but it also delivers a combined 33 miles per gallon.

The hybrid system isn't the only new feature found in the 2021 Sienna, it also has some great options available in the interior. Unfortunately, some of those cool new options won't be available at the Sienna's launch due to a supplier issue.

Speaking with Roadshow, a Toyota spokesperson confirmed that, "Unfortunately, due to a supplier issue, the vacuum and refrigerator features will not be available at launch. Availability is to be determined."

Toyota originally planned to offer the Limited trim level with a built-in vacuum and a storage box. The top Platinum trim would swap the storage box for a built-in refrigerator.

Both features will come eventually, but possibly not until 2021. Toyota still plans to ship the Sienna to dealerships before the end of 2020, but the Limited and Platinum trims will ship without these features. CarBuzz has reached out to Toyota for comment to see if these trim levels will receive a small price cut to offset the missing features.

Toyota hasn't released pricing yet for the 2021 Sienna, but the 2020 model ranged from $31,640 or the base model to just under $50,000 for the fully-loaded trim. We expect official pricing figures to come soon before the van goes on sale later this year. The new Sienna will still pack some impressive features such as second-row captain chairs with optional ottomans, a wireless phone charger, and more.
