For a long time, I have considered Toyota Sienna to be, perhaps, the ultimate family road trip vehicle.
Sienna rides smooth, quiet and comfortable. Especially at highway cruising speeds. It has room for either seven or eight passengers, depending on the configuration you own.
Plus, Toyota Sienna will last a long, long time. In fact, iSeeCars.com recently named Sienna the top minivan that owners keep the longest (11.5% of original owners keep their Sienna for at least 15 years).
Yes, Sienna is the ideal road trip vehicle. For on the road.
But off-road? Not so sure about that.
2022 Sienna: Hold my beer.
Toyota Sienna Woodland Special Edition
Imagine a 2021 Toyota Sienna that achieves 35mpg. It can switch on its own between gasoline and electric power to give you optimal balance between performance and fuel efficiency.
Sienna accomplishes this through use of a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine and electric motors. Teamwork.
Now add in the all-new 2022 Sienna Woodland Special Edition. Time to go next level here folks.
Sienna Woodland (I will call it Sienna Woodland for short) allows drivers and their families to go places not normally reserved for, well quite frankly, a Toyota Sienna.

Look for standard all-wheel drive (AWD) with an increased ground clearance that builds on the 6.37 inches currently found on 2021 Sienna. This official ground clearance has not been released by Toyota yet. But we know it will be higher up from the ground. Helpful for stumps, sticks and rocks in your path.
The 2022 Toyota Sienna Woodland features an electronic on-demand all-wheel drive system that works both on dry roads and in more slippery conditions like mud, sand, snow and dirt.
Sienna Woodland drives in front-wheel drive mode when on dry ground, thus saving on fuel. However, when your wheels begin to slip, your Sienna can divert up to 80% of torque to the back wheels. As needed.
Talk about peace of mind when the road and driving conditions become less than favorable.

Time for your Toyota Sienna comments
Thanks for reading everyone.
I have driven this redesigned fourth-generation 2021 Sienna many times already. I find it to have good acceleration (245 net hybrid horsepower). It is also quite smooth and quiet as well.
The addition of 2022 Toyota Sienna Woodland Special Edition to the Sienna lineup may give you extra incentive to give Sienna a try.
I can imagine seeing this new trim level at the beach, in the mountains, or heading for a weekend camping trip.
What do you think of Sienna Woodland? And how about that Cement color?
