Do all Gen 3 XLE premium's have the same features? e.g., Do all have remote keyless entry?

My 2011 XLE did not have push Button start.
But the 2011 XLE with the optional Premium package did have push button start.

A number of features were added to the XLE - both standard and Premium - over the ten model year run.

For example, an acoustic windshield became standard on the XLE in 2013 but this change is not shown in the sales brochures. Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) became optional in 2013 and standard in 2015. The gen 3 Sienna can be divided into three distinct subgroups: 2011-2014, 2015-2017 and 2018-2020. Sienna in each of these subgroups are more similar to each other. 2017 was a transitional year in that there were no exterior changes but it got the 8-speed transmission and Atkinson cycle engine used in the 2018-2020 Sienna.

that's great info! thanks for breaking it down. noob question: is the 8speed tranny/new motor design deemed superior or inferior?
