Toyota Sienna Towing Capacity

When it comes to towing, most people immediately think of a big pickup truck. However, SUVs and minivans are just as capable of towing equipment around Harrisburg, Mechanicsburg, and Carlisle.

One vehicle that comes to mind for us is the Toyota Sienna. Just how much can this minivan tow? The 2019 Toyota Sienna can tow up to 3,500 pounds when equipped with the Towing Prep Package. We’ll tell you more in this guide to the Toyota Sienna towing capacity below. We’ll also go over some of its other features, so you can decide if it’s the right automobile for you.

Read through the information below and feel free to contact Faulkner Toyota Harrisburg if you have any questions.

How Much Can the Toyota Sienna Tow?

The 2019 Toyota Sienna can tow up to 3,500 pounds when equipped with the Towing Prep Package. Inside this package, you’ll find an engine oil cooler, along with a heavy-duty radiator and fan, helping to make towing easier.

Another feature that’s quite useful for towing is Hill Start Assist Control. This standard feature will hold the brakes while you move your foot to the gas pedal. That way, the vehicle nor trailer will roll backward when stopped on an incline.

With the towing capacity found in the Sienna, you can hitch a couple of snowmobiles or personal watercrafts to the vehicle. So, whether you’re heading to the beach or the mountains, you’ll be well-prepared for a fun weekend away.

Toyota Sienna Performance Specs

The towing capacity, though, is just one aspect of this minivan’s performance. In fact, it’s capable of doing so much more, including delivering a comfortable ride, ample power, and optimum traction on any road.

The 2019 Sienna comes with a 3.5L V6 engine that delivers 296 horsepower and 263 lb-ft of torque. As a result, it accelerates easily and has more than enough power to pass other vehicles on the highway. It’s quite efficient, too, achieving an EPA-estimated 19 city/27 highway MPG1—great for when you have a long commute or need to run lots of errands.

Additionally, this minivan is the only one in its class to offer all-wheel drive (AWD). This available feature will process information sent from different sensors to detect when AWD is needed. It’ll then transmit the right amount of torque between the front and rear wheels to help maintain traction on a slick surface, for your peace of mind.

Toyota Sienna Cargo Room

As we’ve mentioned before, the Toyota Sienna can tow hefty equipment. However, sometimes you don’t need to transport such large items, but rather smaller ones, instead.

In that case, you can utilize this vehicle’s versatile cargo capacity. The measurements of the car’s cargo volume are as follows:

  • Behind the third row: 39.1 cubic feet
  • Behind the second row: 87.1 cubic feet
  • Behind the first row: 150 cubic feet

You get a 40/20/40 fold-down second-row seat, as well as a 60/40 Split & Stow 3rd Row® seat. In just one solid motion, the third-row folds into a cargo area storage compartment, giving you a flat load space. Plus, this type of versatility means that you fit items of all shapes and sizes while still leaving room for a couple of backseat passengers.
