Toyota Sienna Paint Code Guide
At Olathe Toyota Parts Center, we've got you covered when you need parts or accessories for your Toyota Sienna. But did you know we also have paint? Whether you need to touch up minor chips and scratches or are planning to respray your Sienna, we've got the paint you need at wholesale prices.
But sometimes, it can be hard to find the right paint because the names or codes change. To help with that, we've put together this guide covering the different generations of Toyota Sienna minivans and the paint codes they used.
First Generation (1998 - 2003)
Toyota launched the first generation Sienna in 1998 as a replacement for the mid-engined, rear-wheel-drive Previa. Built on a modified version of the Camry platform, the Sienna was equipped with front-wheel drive and the 3.0-liter 1MZ-FE V6 engine rated at 194 hp.
Marketed as the "Camry of minivans," it was built in Georgetown, Kentucky, and offered in three trim levels - CE, LE, and XLE. The LE and XLE models were equipped with 2nd-row captain's chairs and a driver-side sliding door, while the CE came with a 2nd-row bench seat and offered the driver's sliding door as an option. The seats can be easily folded and individually removed as needed, regardless of trim levels.

Second Generation (2004 - 2010)
Toyota introduced the second-generation Sienna for the 2004 model year. It offered 45% more space than the first-generation model and was available with optional all-wheel drive. Trim levels included the CE, LE, and XLE, and a new top-level XLE Limited. All Siennas were equipped with keyless entry and 60/40 split rear seats that could fold flat into the floor.
Sienna production moved from Kentucky to Indiana, but the big change was a new factory tow package that provided a 3,500-pound towing capacity.
Third Generation (2011 - 2020)
The third-generation Sienna received a number of improvements when it launched in 2011. A new SE trim level provided a sportier appearance with revised bodywork and received a sport-tuned suspension. A four-cylinder version was available for the first time in the Sienna lineup for people who didn't need all-wheel drive or the tow package.
Toyota continued to offer the LE, XLE, and Limited trim levels alongside the SE package but dropped the CE trim level. A base-level minivan was available and was just referred to as the "base Sienna."
Fourth Generation (2021 - Present)
In 2021 Toyota again revised the trim levels for the fourth-generation Sienna. The LE, XLE, and Limited trims returned, while the SE trim was replaced by the XSE sport trim. Additionally, the Sienna gained a new top-level Platinum trim, including a heads-up display and 360-degree camera view.
Also new on the Sienna was the availability of a hybrid-electric powertrain which includes an electric motor to power the rear wheels. Other features include four-zone climate control, optional Wi-Fi, and a host of driver assistance features, including adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, lane keeping, and automatic emergency braking.
How To Locate Your Paint Code
The paint code is located on the identification plate inside the driver's door. This plate provides a lot of information about your vehicle, including the manufacture date, configuration, options, and paint color. Every factory color has a unique code to identify the paint formula needed to match the paint.
Many colors look similar under different lighting conditions. Likewise, your Sienna's paint color may appear different from the paint code sample. Using the correct paint code will help ensure you get the right match, whether you're buying touch-up paint for minor chips and scratches or planning on repainting parts of your vehicle.
