  • 2015 Toyota Sienna marks current generation's first major refresh
  • Highlights include revamped interior with new dashboard and fresh features
  • Pricing will be announced ahead of 2015 Sienna's debut later this year

Remember the Swagger Wagon? Well, the Toyota Sienna still has lots of swag for a minivan, but there are multiple competitors on the horizon. Most notably, Kia's about to get back into the game with an all-new Sedona, and the rival Honda Odyssey has been steadily improving since the current Sienna's debut back in 2011. That's why the 2015 Sienna sees numerous updates that Toyota hopes will preserve its appeal well into the future.

The big news is inside, where the Sienna has a totally new dashboard featuring revamped gauges, an optional 4.2-inch driver information display, contrast stitching (if black leather is specified) and a more intuitive control layout. Most notably, the rather adventurous, design-driven climate controls employed previously have given way to two big knobs that look exceptionally easy to use. In general, there's less visual clutter now, and the symmetrical presentation makes it easier for the passenger to get involved. Upgraded materials throughout the cabin contribute to the sense of greater cohesion and quality.

Although the Sienna was already one of the best-equipped family vehicles on the market, two new features in particular should serve to drive up its stock. The Driver Easy Speak system in the 2015 Sienna uses the built-in Bluetooth microphone to pipe the driver's voice through the speaker system, meaning you'll no longer have to shout to be heard in the third row. Just talk normally, and your kids will hear you like you're their bus driver (which, let's face it, you kind of are). Also, a wide-view backup camera now comes standard on the Sienna, so there's no longer a need to pay extra for this important safety feature.

Otherwise, the 2015 Sienna largely stands pat, carrying over its sublime 3.5-liter V6 engine and adopting just a few exterior tweaks, including a new grille on mainstream models. The updates it receives are significant though, serving notice to rival minivans that this Toyota's certainly not going down without a fight.

What it means to you: It looks like the 2015 Toyota Sienna's bringing swag back, so keep it on your shortlist of minivans to try.
