Saturn uses the Saab (GM) V6 also.

Lincoln has the Jaguar (Ford) V6 in the LS.

(But I guess you are counting imports...)

Porsche has the 3.2l BoxsterS (but that is .2 liters over)

I bet there are some v6 pickup truck engines that you are missing (or do you only care about cars?)

Note that all vehicles share one of the two engines and their variants -- 1MZ-FE and 2JZ-GE. All Toyota models and ES/RX share the former while IS/GS/SC share the latter.

In fact, there aren't that many engines in the Toyota/Lexus lineup:

1NZ-FE
ECHO

1NZ-FXE (variant of the engine above)
Prius

1ZZ-FE
Corolla
Celica GT
MR2 Spyder

2ZZ-FE
Celica GTS

1MZ-FE
See above, plus
Highlander V6

5VZ-FE
Tacoma V6
Tundra V6
4Runner

3RZ-FE
Tacoma 4cyl

1AZ-FE
RAV4

2AZ-FE
Highlander 4cyl
Camry 2002 (my guess)

5S-FE
Carmy 4cyl
Solara 4cyl

2UZ-FE
Land Cruiser
Sequoia
Tundra V8

That's 11 engines and their variants vs. 22 vehicle lines and their variants. Taken by engine family alone, it comes down to 8 families.

Actually, the Sienna gets VVT-i so the power is up to 210 hp - same as the ES300. My cousin bought one with dual remote doors, and the nifty tv/vcr/dvd/playstation option.
It's pretty zippy for a minivan.
