    It seems like they'd make it more sportier or aggresive looking since the launch of GM's CSVs. But then again the CSVs arent much of a competition with the Sienna.

    I REALLY liked the 2004/2005 Sienna. Not sure why, just thought it was a great looking vehicle. Something I would actually be proud to own.

    This one, 'ehhhhh.

    Seeing that it came out as an '04, I'm impressed with their willingness to keep it fresh.

    The previous generation GM minivans went how long without even a refresh? 7 years?

    This was a different refresh, but not bad. Those headlights look like they came from the Japanese vans that Toyota makes. Looks fiercer now.

    A nice looking minivan. I would put it and the Honda Odyssey on my list of minvans if I were ever in the need of one.

    Not bad at all.....

    Much better looking, but they still haven't fixed the grille.

    Can't say I like this front more then the old version....it looks pulled too far back, kinda dispraportionate to the rest of the body, looks like it falls in line now with the headlighrs of the solara...

    I think in the future you will see a refresh happen sooner for many models.

    Speaking of which, Toyota seems split over grille designs. Their trucks, SUVs and minivans have exact or similar takes on the admittedly clumsy three-slot theme while few, if any of the cars match. Many are due for replacement, but the Toyota family has gone from appearing obviously related to being all over the place...
