Wow, no news on the new Sienna coming out. I've pinged a few dealers, etc. Nothing.

My guess is mid to late fall. I wouldn't be in a hurry to be the first one to buy a 2021. Unless you really need to buy a new car, it's probably better to wait a while and let Toyota get the bugs out of the design first. This isn't a simple mid-cycle refresh. Often the first few months of a new from the ground-up model can be rocky... even for a Toyota.

I agree but at some point I will need to "pull the trigger" as my current vehicle isn't doing great :). Also, I've learned, the longer you wait, the longer you wait as there are always newer and more appealing vehicles just around the corner :)

Yeah- you don't have to wait for a model year or two to pass, I just wouldn't buy one with a manufacturing date that indicates that it was one of the first to be built- I'd wait at least a month or two... just so that Toyota is able to get the bugs out of the new model. No matter how much testing a carmaker does before releasing a new model, they always make small adjustments after they start seeing the issues that develop once consumers start driving them for a while. TSBs are pretty common for new Toyota models... as the car/design age those TSBs generally decrease because they start making those changes at the factory.

My 2007 Camry Hybrid has been great- it was the first year of new generation- but I didn't buy it until the new generation was out for like six months- and the manufacturing date in the driver's door indicated that it was produced months after they started producing the new model.

Unfortunately my current car is showing its age. Have had to get it towed once this year already after a pulley broke ripping the serpentine belt. I was ready to get the new Highlander but the third row seems useless. This new Sienna is checking off all the right boxes. Wonder how much longer I can wait...

If you can't wait, first year cars will have their issues, but first year Toyotas aren't as bad as other makes. My XRS was a first year production, and the steering rack and moonroof were replaced under warranty.
