The base 2.7-liter four-cylinder produces 187 hp while the 3.5-liter V6 makes 266 hp.

Toyota has unveiled the all-new, third-generation Sienna minivan at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Boasting attractive styling and a luxurious interior, the 2011 Sienna has seating for up to eight individuals. According to Bob Carter, Toyota's US vice president and general manager, "The all-new Sienna is an example of Toyota's commitment to lead the marketplace as it anticipates consumers' needs and changes in lifestyle."

Under the hood, two different engines will be offered. The base 2.7-liter four-cylinder produces 187 hp while the 3.5-liter V6 makes 266 hp. Connected to a six-speed automatic transmission, Toyota estimates the V6 will be rated at 18 mpg city/24 mpg highway (16 mpg city/22 mpg highway on AWD models) and the four-cylinder will come in at 19 mpg city/26 mpg highway.

Available in five different trim levels (Sienna grade, LE, SE, XLE and Limited), the Sienna comes nicely equipped with cruise control, air conditioning, power windows, a four-speaker CD stereo system, power door locks, anti-lock brakes (ABS), electronic brake-force distribution vehicle stability control (VSC), and traction control. The LE V6 boasts power-sliding rear doors, a power driver seat, an electrochromatic rearview mirror, a backup camera, XM satellite radio, a USB port, Bluetooth connectivity, and steering wheel audio controls. The XLE trim level adds leather upholstery, a moonroof, keyless entry, and heated front seats. The range-topping Limited has second-row ‘Lounge Seating', a power 60/40 ‘Split & Stow' third-row seat, front and rear parking sensors, and two moonroofs. SE models come with an aerodynamic body kit, 19-inch alloy wheels, smoked tail lights, a sport-tuned suspension, and a unique interior color scheme.

As usual, the car will be available with a wide variety of options. The most interesting one is Toyota's new ‘Dual View Entertainment Center'. It "uses two displays side-by-side to create a seamless 16.4-inch widescreen image from a single source. When two separate entertainment options are called for, the system can split the screen into two individual screens."

Look for the new Sienna to start arriving at dealerships in February 2010.
