2013 Toyota Sienna

Here’s something that bucks the trend: Toyota just announced the 2013 Sienna minivan will no longer be offered with a four-cylinder engine. The formerly optional V-6 is now standard in all trims.

2013 Nissan Quest

Minivans – traditional minivans – are becoming scarce. GM and Ford don’t even make them anymore.
