What will change? Aside from a possible update to the color palette, don’t expect much to change for the 2015 edition of this seven- or eight-passenger minivan. Toyota is working on a redesign that’s slated to debut for the 2016 model year.
Why wait for the 2015 Toyota Sienna: To see if Toyota adds any new paint colors that you might like more than what the company is offering on the 2014 Sienna. No other significant changes are likely given the planned 2016 redesign.
Why buy a 2014 Toyota Sienna: To get the sport-themed SE model with blind-spot alert as a standalone option. Toyota previously offered this worthwhile safety feature on the SE only as part of a costly option package. Otherwise, Sienna mostly stands pat for 2014. This is the only minivan currently sold in North America to offer all-wheel drive as an option. This feature is something worth considering if you live in an area where stormy winters are a fact of life. In an effort to boost its corporate fuel-economy ratings, Toyota could very well eliminate AWD from the options sheet as part of its upcoming redesign.
