Many car magazines note, that 2021 can be called ‘the minivan year’. The major carmakers decided to refresh or offer completely new minivans.
Welcome the 2021 leaders: an all-new Toyota Sienna, and refreshed versions of the Chrysler Pacifica and Honda Odyssey. The other popular American vans, such as Kia Sedona and Chrysler Voyager, also gained minor improvements. So, let us take a closer look at what the carmakers changed and improved for these vehicles for 2021.
What is the most powerful minivan for 2021?
While the 700-HP Mercedes R63 AMG is still considered the fastest and the most powerful minivan ever with the top speed being 165.5 MPH, it is unlikely to become the best daily driver for an average American family.
Toyota Sienna is available with the most impressive powertrain (3.5 L V6 engine, 296 hp). Its hybrid version features a 2.5 L L4 engine mated to 2 electric motors. Though, all-wheel-drive versions of the 2021 Toyota Sienna have 3 electric motors (an extra one is added to work with the rear axle). The 2.5-liter Sienna features 243 hp, which is enough for an average American driver.
The other popular American vans feature less powerful engines. Kia Sedona, Honda Odyssey and Chrysler Pacifica that come equipped with the 6-cylinder engines feature 276, 280, and 287 horsepower, respectively.
What are the best floor liners for minivans in 2021?
While WeatherTech is still one of the most popular floor liner manufacturers based on the recent research, there are many other great floor liner brands to consider for your minivan. 3D Maxpider, SmartLiners and Lloyd mats offer great selection of the products for 2021 American minivans.
Here is a good tip. If you plan on covering all 3 rows of your minivan, make sure the manufacturer offers them. If you order just one row in tan and will not find the rest in this color, the chances are high that you will have to get the rest in black.
