Toyota is launching a special edition of the 4th generation Sienna minivan called ‘Sienna Woodland’ in the U.S. market this fall. The company said that it’ll make a $250 donation to the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF) for each vehicle purchased, with a guaranteed minimum donation of $250,000.
The Sienna Woodland is available in two exterior colors: Cement — exclusive to the special edition, or Midnight Black Metallic. Other touches include black badges and dark chrome-colored accents. The minivan rides on 18-inch wheels. Tow hitch with 3,500 lbs (1,588 kg) towing capability and roof rails with crossbars come standard. A 1,500-watt power outlet in the luggage area, which is a factory option in the regular variants, comes standard for the Woodland. In addition, the ground clearance is said to have been increased “to take on dirt roads with confidence”.
Inside, the Sienna Woodland comes with heated front seats, second-row captain’s chairs, split & stow 3rd-row seat, kick-activated sliding doors, sunshades in the 2nd row and a total of seven USB ports across all three rows. In addition, a 12-speaker JBL audio system keeps the occupants entertained. The rest of the features have been carried over from the regular Sienna, including the Toyota Safety Sense (TSS 2.0) suite of active safety systems.
Mechanically, the Sienna Woodland remains the same; it’s a hybrid AWD minivan. The powertrain combines a 2.5-litre 4-cylinder gasoline engine and two electric motors — a separate, independent electric motor powers the rear wheels. The system output is about 183 kW (245 bhp/249 metric hp). Torque distribution varies with conditions, from 100:0 in constant speed driving to 20:80 on slippery surfaces; the distribution is indicated on the MID.
