Under the Hood

For 2013, Toyota drops the 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine that came standard on the base and LE versions of the Sienna, making standard a 266-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 driving the front wheels through a 6-speed Sequential Shift automatic transmission. The 2013 Sienna is the only minivan available with an optional all-wheel-drive system.

Fuel Economy
EPA fuel-economy estimates for the 2013 Toyota Sienna are:

  • Sienna: 18/25/21 mpg (city/highway/combined)
  • Sienna AWD: 16/23/19 mpg

Every 2013 Sienna is equipped with 7 air bags, including a knee air bag for the driver. Additionally, the minivan has 4-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes with brake assist, traction and stability control, and a Smart Stop system designed to prevent the vehicle from accelerating when the brake pedal is depressed.

Additional safety-related features, standard or available depending on trim level, include a reversing camera, front and rear park-assist sensors, rain-sensing wipers, blind-spot monitoring system, and a dynamic cruise control system with pre-collision readiness. The Sienna can also be equipped with Safety Connect service, including an SOS Emergency button and Automatic Crash Notification.

Complete crash-test ratings for the 2013 Sienna are not available as this overview is written. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) rates the van only for side-impact protection (5 stars, the highest rating) and rollover resistance (4 stars out of 5 stars). The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has not evaluated the 2013 Sienna, but the identical 2012 model was named a \"Top Safety Pick.\"
