That seems to make sense before Biden won the election. Extending more tax rebates may be oneI’m skeptical of PHEV possibility. Looking RAV4 Prime, Toyota seems more interested in compliance. Why bother with Sienna when it will sell enough RAV4s, and why hit Federal tax break bogey any sooner by adding another Prime model?
But if it happens, sign us up...
Will you get carplay without the $2000 le package?Yea the 2021 Toyota Camry Hybrid price dropped two days ago on September 30th and it was a logical guess to think they would have included the Sienna in the announcement. I was very surprised at the Camry's pricing as the 2021 model reduces the price by $1160 on some trims something I don't think I've ever seen a manufacturer do. Although for Toyota's SUVs (AWD vs. AWD Hybrid) the Hybrid upcharge is $1000 to $1400, for Camry it's $4000.
One of our vehicles broke down and we couldn't wait for the 2021 Camry, so my wife got a 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Blue (base trim) last month for a number of reasons but the primary ones were the 2020 Camry Hybrid LE (base trim) cost thousands more, the infotainment is very dated, and BSM and RCTA were an additional cost package on the LE. All things the 2021 Camry model fixed. I'm still glad we got the Sonata though as we got a good deal $3000 off MSRP plus 0%/72mo. financing, the Infotainment is much better, and every safety system came standard. Would be a much tougher choice once 2021 Camry is out though.
I'm starting to think the November availability for the Sienna that I've seen Toyota state on their Facebook page is going to end up being November 30th . I agree with @medallione its odd that they wouldn't go with safety sense 2.5 since the Highlander at the same manufacturing plant uses it. I've already been waiting since the end of last year to buy as we almost bought a 2020 but decided to wait so we aren't waiting anymore. I'll likely end up buying the base model 2021 Sienna LE as my only must-haves are AWD, Safety suite, tow hitch, and Apple CarPlay.
