PLANO, Texas (April 27, 2021) –  The new Toyota Sienna is leveling up for 2022, thanks to the new Sienna Woodland Special Edition. Featuring adventure-ready, rugged styling and a standard Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive System with increased ground clearance, the new edition will help drivers tackle outdoor adventures with confidence. Once the Sienna Woodland Special Edition is in dealerships this Fall, Toyota will make a $250 donation to the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF) for each vehicle purchased, with a guaranteed minimum donation of $250,000, to support NEEF’s mission to make the environment more accessible, relatable, relevant and connected to people’s lives.

The new Sienna Woodland Special Edition, in the available exterior colors Cement  (exclusive to the Sienna Woodland Edition) or Midnight Black Metallic, offers a beautifully distinctive exterior and premium interior styling with the versatile features one would expect from the fourth generation Sienna. Designed with a focus on versatility and comfort combined with class-leading projected 35 EPA-estimated combined MPG, the Sienna Woodland Edition comes standard with:

  • AWD w/ Added Ground Clearance – To take on dirt roads with confidence
  • 1500W capable power outlet – To power-up most household items for a short day trip or an overnight camping excursion
  • Tow hitch with 3500lb Towing Capability – Perfect for bringing a 4Wheeler or Jet Ski
  • Roof rails with crossbars
  • Exclusive Cement exterior color
  • Black sport trimmed seats with unique stitch color
  • 18” wheels
  • Dark chrome-colored accents
  • Black badging
  • Navigation with JBL® 1200W System with 12 Speakers

And with the flexibility and roominess to fit people, pets and recreational gear – the Sienna Woodland Edition also comes standard with features like super-long-slide second-row captain’s chairs, flexible seating and cargo layout with Split & Stow 3rd Row® Seat, kick-activated sliding doors, heated front driver & passenger seats, sunshades in the 2nd row and a total of seven USB ports across all three rows.

Electronic On-Demand All Wheel Drive

The new generation Sienna is the only vehicle in its segment that combines a hybrid powertrain with AWD, and the system is available on all model grades for an exceptionally attractive price. For the 2022 Sienna Woodland Special Edition, drivers can now enjoy standard Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive System with increased ground clearance.

Instead of a heavy AWD transfer case and space-robbing driveshaft to the rear wheels, this AWD system uses a separate independent electric motor to power the rear wheels the instant additional traction is needed and at all vehicle speeds.

Like the hybrid system, the Hybrid AWD system works seamlessly and transparently. During off-the-line starts, Hybrid AWD pre-emptively sends up to 80 percent of driving force to the rear wheels to help prevent front-wheel slip. The Hybrid AWD system also enhances cornering agility by helping to reduce understeer, giving the Sienna a more confident handling feel.

Torque distribution then varies with conditions, from 100:0 in constant-speed driving to 20:80 on slippery surfaces. Torque distribution is indicated on the Multi-information Display.

Class Exclusive Safety Features

In addition to exemplary collision protection provided by the TNGA-K Platform, the 2022 Sienna Woodland Special Edition, come standard with second-generation Toyota Safety Sense (TSS 2.0), a comprehensive active safety system that includes:

  • Pre-Collision system with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Alert w/Lane Trace Assist
  • Full Speed Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Cyclist Detection
  • Road Sign Recognition

Pre-Collision System (PCS) with Pedestrian Detection is designed to provide automatic braking capability should the driver not react in time in certain emergency situations. The PCS system is not only designed to detect a vehicle ahead, but it can also detect a bicyclist and even a pedestrian in low light situations. Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) is standard on all Sienna models, as well.

Toyota Limited Warranty
Toyota’s 36-month/36,000 mile basic new-vehiclewarranty applies to all components other than normal wear and maintenance items. Additional 60-month warranties cover the powertrain for 60,000 miles and against perforation from corrosion for 60 months with no mileage limitation. Hybrid-related components that require repairs needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship are covered for 8 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first from original date of first use when sold as new. The HV battery is covered for 10 years/150,000 miles, whichever comes first, and is transferrable across ownership.

The 2022 Sienna Woodland Special Edition also comes with ToyotaCare, which covers normal factory-scheduled maintenance, for two years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first, and 2 years of Roadside Assistance, regardless of mileage.
