TORRANCE, California The revised 2015 Toyota Sienna minivan debuted on Thursday with an emphasis on family-friendly features, including an option that keeps parents from shouting at their kids in the backseat.

"The 2015 Sienna offers something for everyone with a more upscale interior, better handling and family-focused, smart technology," Toyota said in a statement.

The optional Driver Easy Speak feature uses the Sienna's built-in microphone to amplify the driver's voice through the rear speakers.

Instrument panel gauges have been updated, there are more soft-touch materials in the cabin and a black leather interior with white contrast stitching is a new option.

Pricing was not announced. The 2014 Toyota Sienna starts at $27,780, including an $860 destination charge.

Expected to arrive at dealerships later this year, the 2015 Sienna targets the Dodge Grand Caravan, Honda Odyssey and Nissan Quest.

The standard powertrain in the Sienna includes a 266-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine linked to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Safety equipment in the 2015 Sienna includes eight airbags. A rearview camera is standard.

The Sienna debuted online today. It will make its public display appearance July 18-20 at Artscape in Baltimore.

Edmunds says: It's the little things that often matter to car shoppers in the market for a new minivan.

    The three spoke looks nicer than the previous gen. Overall some nice updates. However, never noticed how lengthy those seat rails are in the second row. Can't imagine the amount of dirt and crumbs that settle down into those rails over the lifetime of this van.

    @hank39, I had seat rails on my '99 Quest that I recently sold. Over the ~15 years we owned it, I rarely bothered (or had need) to clean them, and they were handy for sliding the seats around. We hauled a lot of junk over the years, including straw and compost tossed in the van on a tarp. The sliding seats are not as handy as the Stow n Go in my current '09 Grand Caravan but they may be more comfortable (I haven't had the Grand Caravan long, but I've yet to sit anywhere but up front).

    Probably still has the same stupid seat dollys in the second row that can't be removed to form a flat floor.
