If there is one kind of vehicles that are hardly ever updated is big family cars or minivans. And the reason is very simple. The buyers for this kind of vehicles aren’t very interested in exterior designs, turbocharged engines, or cutting-edge entertainment systems. They’re mainly interested in getting a car that provides them with reliability, capacity, and have a high-torque engine.
And this is exactly the case of the Toyota Sienna. Every since it was released to the market back in 2011, it has only received minor upgrades.
