GDI engine

What year did the Sedona get the GDI engine, or better yet ........what was the last year of the normally aspirated Sedona FI engine in the U.S. ?

Probably check with the 1st and 2nd gen Sedona forum. This is for 2015+, which are all GDI. 2014 is the year the engines switched to GDI

276 horsepower and reviewers call Sedona acceleration "adequate for the class."

276 horsepower: near 1980s supercar levels.

My old '82 Toyota supra inline-6 was rated at 145 hp. My Sedona has nearly double, and my Cadenza has more than double (@ 293). We've come a long way, baby.

Many definitely had more but: "For the U.S. market the 1980 Ferrari 308's transversely mid-mounted 2.9-liter aluminum V8 saw output drop from 237 horsepower down to 214 HP, in the name of improving emissions."

1987 Lotus Esprit Turbo: 215 hp
1980 BMW M1: 274 hp

My first car had 85 hp but got low-30s mpg... (and now safety stuff whatsoever).

Amazing.

Went looking for a car for my daughter: so many cute ones, old bugs, old volvo sports cars, etc., etc. NO safety innovations that can compare with all the carp in the Sedona. My brother in law gave her a 2002 Volvo S60, an entry-level luxury sports sedan. The Sedona is *worlds* better (of course, so is any modern Volvo or pretty much any other car, but still).
