As the first half of 2024 wraps up, reports show Toyota gaining ground on General Motors in the US auto market, setting their sights on the sales leadership crown.

While Toyota boasts consistent performers like the RAV4, Corolla, and Camry, some areas require improvement.

The Tacoma truck’s sales dipped significantly, even falling behind the Tundra. Surprisingly, the aging 4Runner emerged as the second-bestselling SUV.

Additionally, Toyota remains one of the few offering minivans, with the Sienna facing declining sales in a shrinking segment dominated by just four competitors: Chrysler Pacifica, Honda Odyssey, Kia Carnival, and Toyota itself.

With Toyota’s Sienna minivan trailing competitors like Honda’s Odyssey and Chrysler’s Pacifica in sales, rumors swirl about a potential refresh to boost its appeal.

The current generation, introduced for the 2021 model year, stands out with its unconventional headlight and taillight design. However, its time in the spotlight might be nearing an end, as whispers of a facelift gain momentum.

The creative minds of YouTube channels like AutoYa Interior are already taking a stab at what a revamped Sienna might look like.

Their visions depict a possible 2025 or 2026 model that retains the underlying TNGA-K platform and Indiana production facility.

But the aesthetics get a significant overhaul, featuring headlights inspired by Toyota’s latest offerings, a redesigned bumper with integrated side accents, a more prominent grille, and a wider range of color options.
