Toyota has announced pricing for the 2019 Sienna minivan, whose base MSRP rises $455 but now includes the Apple CarPlay smartphone integration platform as a standard feature.

Also new to Toyota's family mover is an AWD option for the SE trim; previously, only the mid-grade LE could be fitted with four-wheel traction. The SE now also comes standard with blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert.

Sienna SE comes in at $42,545 (up $955) with an eight-passenger cabin, 19-inch wheels, blind spot and rear cross traffic alerts, leather seating, power front passenger seat, fog lights, LED taillights and a power tailgate. The SE Technology package is $1,100 richer this year ($48,360) for its inclusion of a JBL 10-speaker stereo, which joins the Entune 3.0 Premium audio setup, rear-seat DVD entertainment system, passive keyless entry, sunroof and anti-theft system. The new Sienna SE AWD carries a $51,220 MSRP.

Sienna XLE AWD ($46,895, up $805 over last year) adds flip-out rear side windows, wood grain trim, leather-trimmed steering wheel, passive keyless entry, 18-inch wheels and rear parking sonar.
