Drag racing a Sienna and an Odyssey seems foolish at face value, but.... uh.... that hybrid 4cyl Sienna was not far off the 280hp V6 Odyssey at all. Pretty surprising to me - I was expecting more of a smack down. Proof that Toyota knew exactly what they were doing here, and it worked.

I still want the six though.

The build and price is live and I see they have a new color called Cypress. Has anyone seen this in person? Can’t find any pictures of it.

A 15-year-old V6 you mean?
Didn't you just defend the V6 being in the new Lexus IS350 not long ago and now you're attacking me for wanting the V6 in the Sienna? Bruh.

I guess it's bad now that people want a good engine that was perfect for the Sienna *shrugs*.

It's sarcasm, chill.

I didn't realize the J35 family has been in production and lacked modern updates for so long until I looked it up. Even the Y6 variant on the latest Odyssey is about a decade behind the FKS in tech.

I really couldn't tell your sarcasm tbh. LOL.

Also there's reasoning as to why I wanted newer engines for the IS. The IS needs it because the competitive set employ that engine configuration. A twin-turbocharged V6. The Sienna's competitors all use NA V6's and the Sienna had the best one (to which I see you are in agreeance with with me).

GAC-Toyota plans to produce 102.6k Sienna "NEV"s per year. That's a very high sales target. Keep in mind Toyota China list hybrids as NEVs so I don't think this means a Sienna BEV or Prime is coming.

Other things: C-HR hybrid/PHV coming with 57.4k planned capacity.
Highlander will have 50k gasoline version (keeping 8AR-FTS) and 40k hybrid version.
In the mid-to-large SUV segment, there are TWO models besides the Highlander. One of them is the Harrier/Venza. This means Toyota has another SUV in this size class in the works. It is unknown whether this is the mid-size E-TNGA SUV Toyota has shown earlier.
This also confirms another hybrid-only MPV below the Sienna, probably the new Previa or Noah.

This made me laugh so hard 🤣
