Not quite top-spec, but nearly there.
Earlier in the year, Toyota announced that it would introduce a Woodland Edition of the 2022 Sienna. Pricing was not released at the time, but CarsDirect has found pricing after studying Toyota's order guide.
The 2022 Sienna Woodlands Edition has an MSRP of $45,350, excluding the $1,215 destination charge. That places it somewhere near the middle of the Sienna pack, as it's a little more expensive than the $42,000 XSE, but not as expensive as the $46,700 Limited and $49,900 Limited trims.
Since its introduction in 2021, the Sienna has been a hybrid-only model. The standard configuration is front-wheel-drive, but all-wheel-drive will be standard on the Woodlands Edition.
In addition to AWD as standard, the Woodlands also has a 0.6-inch ground clearance advantage. You won’t be able to do any serious off-roading, but the Woodlands should be more agreeable on a neatly kept gravel road.
The engine is the same as used on other Sienna models. It’s a 2.5-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder working in conjunction with two electric motors to provide 243 hp. According to the EPA, this model can do 35 mpg on the combined cycle. The Sienna is also one of the safest cars available in the USA.
Exterior additions include roof rails with crossbars, 18-inch alloys, and model-specific color options. The feature most adventurous families will like is the standard tow hitch and 3,500 lbs towing capacity.
On the inside, Toyota includes a 1,500-watt power outlet, black seats with model-specific stitching, and a 12-speaker JBL sound system. Considering all of these upgrades, the Woodlands Edition does seem rather tempting compared to the AWD XSE, which has an MSRP of $43,065.
The price difference is around $3,500, and it seems fair considering everything Toyota includes over and above XSE specification. We think most people will be swayed by the quasi-4×4 exterior, however. As you might know, crossovers are, like, so hot right now.
The gas-only Honda Odyssey range starts at $32,290 in base LX specification and increases to $48,020 in Elite trim. AWD is not an option. The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, which is our minivan of choice, starts at $44,920 and goes up to $53,550.
