We spoke with Toyota executives about the new Sienna and Venza crossover via video conference call, and learned that a Sienna Prime is "technically" possible – but unlikely. Jack Hollis, Group Vice President and General Manager of Toyota Marketing, says that there are "no plans on either [Sienna or Venza Prime] at this point."
Yes, the new Sienna is a very classy-looking update on the current decade-old one, but I share @F1 Silver Arrows' deep disappointment in the absence of the V6 in the new Sienna. I told myself that perhaps we'd see a Sienna Prime with V6 power levels sooner rather than later, and now they're saying it's unlikely...Never say never...
The A25A/B-FXS is kind of a problem child in the Dynamic Force family right now. First the faulty pump issue (though it's mostly fixed in NA and not an engine-related issue), then the oil dilution which is impossible to fix (since it's an inherent design).I am also very sad honestly
As this mill can be found in a lot of cars, from Camry & Avalon to the SUVs Highlander & Venza to the Sienna
and that's because I think that Toyota take a lot of time to master this mill near to perfect and it's by its own a combination between PHEV & HEV
Maybe they wanted to put it first in the soon to be facelifted ES , 5RX and 2NX before other Toyota's
There are priorities. Minivans are low volume compared to SUVs, so they must prioritize the PHV powertrain for the RAV4, Highlander, NX, and RX. The bottleneck is battery production. Panasonic's prismatic and 18650 lines are pretty full right now. Low priority products have to wait. Low priority markets have to wait. They also have to consider CAFE since there are higher priority products that use high fuel consumption engines, so minivan again has to make way.Yes, the new Sienna is a very classy-looking update on the current decade-old one, but I share @F1 Silver Arrows' deep disappointment in the absence of the V6 in the new Sienna.

Interesting. My guess is no.....Toyota used to have backlit cruise control stalks for the Rav4, Sienna and Highlander, those never ever made it to the Lexus brand.Now we wait to see if this feature turns up on the next new or facelifted Lexus model (IS, ES and NX come to mind).
Like I mentioned in the past, the RAV4, HL and Sienna all had backlit cruise control stalks...a Toyota thing only. (I believe it was a US supply thing)Toyota shares alot of parts with the Lexus brand to keep costs down,
Whats the difference?GX cruise control stalk vs Toyota cruise control stalk
There is none. Now that Toyota and Lexus will be using the TGNA group of platforms, I`m expecting things to get even closer.Like I mentioned in the past, the RAV4, HL and Sienna all had backlit cruise control stalks...a Toyota thing only. (I believe it was a US supply thing)
Whats the difference?
I am a little confused on your position.The press embargo on the 2018 Camry has lifted, and the flood of reviews has hit us. In this time, I came to realize that, rather embarrassingly, I am actually excited about this new Camry and the engine tech it’s debuting. But what truly made me lose my mind was the cruise control buttons on...oppositelock.kinja.com
Thats in reference to the cruise control stalks mentioned in my post earlier. Vehicles across the Toyota range have been using those same switches for a while. Look forward to that feature to hop on over in the upcoming lineupI am a little confused on your position.
