As per the information coming from the company’s dealer meeting, the carmaker is working on the 2021 Sienna and it would be offered with a hybrid mill. Also, the 2021 Sienna spy shots have been captured while doing rounds on foreign turf. The hybrid version of the Sienna is expected to go on sale later this year in global markets. So, the 2021 Toyota Sienna could be one of electrified models that Toyota is scheduled to showcase next week.
Additionally, there are also some rumours claiming that the carmaker will be reviving the Venza nameplate, marking its return in the form of a crossover. The Venza Crossover is likely to be offered in a single hybrid powertrain option only, which will look similar to the recently unveiled Yaris Cross. Apart from the Venza, the carmaker has been extensively developing the next generation Tundra. The Tundra pick-up will also be getting a hybrid treatment as it steps into the new generation. But the reports claim that the pickup truck will debut around December 2021. So, the company might not showcase it on May 18.
