Ever since it launched in March 1990 for the 1991 model year, the Toyota Previa was unlike any other minivan. The standard formula, established by Chrysler, contained a transversely mounted engine driving the front wheels. The Previa with an inline 4-cylinder engine lying on its side, mounted amidships, driving the rear wheels through a 4-speed automatic and a driveshaft. Another shaft runs forward and drives the air conditioning, alternator and supercharger (if fitted) under the hood. Toyota said it was designed this way to facilitate its all-wheel drive (called All-Trac). Despite the unique layout, the Previa still competed against the more conventional Chrysler Town & Country and Mercury Villager, both upscale vehicles with 6-cylinder engines. The Previa's Roots supercharger was added as an option to compensate for the lack of a larger engine.

Ever since it launched in March 1990 for the 1991 model year, the Toyota Previa was unlike any other minivan. The standard formula, established by Chrysler, contained a transversely mounted engine driving the front wheels. The Previa with an inline 4-cylinder engine lying on its side, mounted amidships, driving the rear wheels through a 4-speed automatic and a driveshaft. Another shaft runs forward and drives the air conditioning, alternator and supercharger (if fitted) under the hood. Toyota said it was designed this way to facilitate its all-wheel drive (called All-Trac). Despite the unique layout, the Previa still competed against the more conventional Chrysler Town & Country and Mercury Villager, both upscale vehicles with 6-cylinder engines. The Previa's Roots supercharger was added as an option to compensate for the lack of a larger engine.


Year-to-year changes[edit | edit source]
