toyota sienna 2001
Three trim degrees are available: CE ($ 23,905), LE ($ 25,755), XLE ($ 28,436). All Siennas usage Toyota's V6 to power the front wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission. All coincide size, and all included double moving back doors. An optional power sliding door on the right is readily available for LE as well as XLE models ($ 395).
Of the three trim levels, the CE is basic: Cruise ship control, and power home windows, locks and mirrors are all optional.
Mid-line LE features all the popular features. It comes standard with dual-temperature air conditioning with different controls for the back, power home windows, locks and also mirrors, cruise ship control, privacy glass and also much better top quality towel. It also offers the majority of the readily available choices, consisting of the captain's chairs, six-speaker audio system and power moving door.

The XLE Upgrade Plan # 1 ($ 1,610) provides leather trim and a premium stereo with radio, cassette, as well as CD changer. Additionally readily available for Sienna is a big power moonroof as well as a towing plan.
New features for 2001 include an optional enjoyment system (with a roof-mounted flip-down TELEVISION display, Video Cassette Recorder, as well as AV outlets for video game systems), a restyled exterior, revamped audio as well as environment control systems, and optional side airbags and (on the XLE) electronic stability control.
With its clean, conventional appearances, the Sienna is a timeless minivan with refined touches of sport-utility styling. The long, sloping nose is clearly minivan, but square lines elsewhere-- especially when checked out from the back-- remember a sport-utility car. Where lots of minivans display huge sweeps of steel, the Sienna has a reasonably even proportion of glass to steel, an additional SUV attribute.
Sienna makes use of a stretched variation of the Camry platform. It is improved the very same Georgetown, Kentucky, assembly line as the Camry. Basing the Sienna on the Camry leads to good road manners. It additionally makes it less expensive to create and also develop-- a great deal for carmaker and buyer. These savings allow Toyota to bring the price of the Sienna closer to the standard for the class.
Being in the driveway, the Sienna looks neat and portable. Its just-right dimension fits in between the Chrysler Town & Nation as well as Voyager. The Sienna is 6 inches narrower inside compared to the Chrysler minivans.
In spite of its moderate size, the within the Sienna is roomy. Three-row seats is standard, and the back freight location is an accommodating 18 inches deep from hatch available to seatback. The flip-and-fold seats make it easy to expand the freight area as required.
If you need to get rid of the seats entirely, they can be raised out independently. The seats can be removed with the seat backs folded level, which make them simpler to handle. The seat latches are superbly performed; they release easily and are easy to re-install.
Getting in and also out of the Sienna is simple. Dual moving doors are now typical as well as guarantee travelers get in and also out quickly and also decrease playing around to the far side of the vehicle to get hold of a kid. Child-safety door locks defeat the within door handles on all gliding doors. At the full-open setting, an interlock stopper avoids gliding doors from sliding shut when parked on a downhill grade. A half-door stopper stops the left-side gliding door from fully opening when the fuel cover is opened to prevent the door from making contact with the fueling location.
The optional right-side power moving door can be opened up by pushing buttons on the dash, keyless remote or B-pillar, or by pulling on the within or outside locks. Throughout the summertime, it's nice to be able to begin the airing out procedure while you're approaching the Sienna with a lots of groceries. A button next to the steering wheel allows the vehicle driver to override these buttons to ensure that the power sliding door can not be opened. The power moving door feature functions without having the key in the ignition. The power moving door can be opened like a normal door when the power switch is shut off. The power sliding door detects when a barrier remains in its course and also automatically withdraws.
Step-in elevation is much less than that of an SUV, making entering as well as out a lot easier for much shorter people, older individuals as well as everyone else. When in, the chauffeur appreciates an extensive view of the roadway, though the sitting placement is not as high as in many sport-utility cars. Visibility is superb in all directions, thanks to all the glass. Big mirrors (power on LE and also XLE models) use a great sight to the back. Instruments allow, intense and also very easy to check out.
All seatsing settings are extremely comfortable. Our Sienna was furnished in the optional leather furniture, which is attractive, lavish and also easy to clean. Reduced side strengthening on the seats makes slipping in and also from them simpler, yet they do not have support to keep you pleasantly anchored in hostile side-to-side maneuvers. Though the rear 2 rows of seats don't supply as much area as the bigger Honda Odyssey, Dodge Grand Campers or Chrysler Community & Nation, they provide adequate area to easily seat 6 people. With a little participation among the passengers, fore and aft changes for the second row (and, of course, the front row) permit maximum space for individuals of differing elevations.
Storage space is nearby without restraining the charitable pass-through in between the pole positions that makes it simple to relocate from the front to the rear without getting out. Little nets affixed to the sides of the pole positions are great for storing toll tickets, sunglasses or budgets. Fold-down cupholders beside the storage space net safe and secure drinks but flip up off the beaten track when not in use; they do not appear like they would certainly hold high beverages well, yet safely held my Venti-sized paper cappuccino cup.
The 2nd row can be outfitted with either captain's chairs or a two-place bench seat. The seatbacks fold to supply a level surface for food and also video games and cupholders. Molded into the doors are round owners ideal for one-liter bottles. Cupholders, approximately 14 of them, are almost everywhere. Either captain's chairs or a three-place bench can be ordered for the 3rd row; the captain's chairs are more suitable if you just need seating for 6 people.
Both the climate as well as audio controls were rearranged for 2001. The radio is now situated higher in the da.
