The New Toyota Sequoia
For the owner that needs uncompromising power and space to go where other SUVs can’t, the Sequoia delivers. Whether you’re loading up your car or attaching a trailer, or both, the Toyota Sequoias powerful engine and available all wheel drive is up to the task.
The Toyota Sequoia is powered by a 5.7- Liter V8 with Dual Independent Variable Valve Timing that produces 381 hp and 401 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine is paired with a 6-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission that is also programmed to intelligently shift on uphill/downhill drives, as well optimize shifts with the included TOW/HAUL mode. The Sequoia is a powerful, large SUV with enough seating for your family, enough space for all their stuff, and enough power to still tow a trailer with camping gear for the weekend.
The Sequoias interior comes with seating for either 7 or 8 passengers and offers them a world of entertainment. The sequoia features available rear-seat Blu-ray Disc player with two wireless headphones, a rear seat console with controls to climate, three 12V auxiliary outlets, plus a 120V AC power outlet on the Platinum Sequoia. All in all, the interior of the Sequoia is a great place to be whether you’re in the first row, or the back 2 rows.
As with all SUVs, the Sequoia takes cargo space very seriously. For that reason, the third row seats feature fold-flat folding seats that give you more space to load groceries or bags, and the second row also features 40/20/40 folding to accommodate any kind of longer cargo like surfboards, plywood, etc. You also have the option to just fold all the seats flat, in which case you’ll have around 120 cu. ft. of cargo space.
The Toyota Sequoia has a towing capacity of up to 7400 lbs which it accomplishes rather easily thanks to the included TOW/HAUL Mode that modifies the Sequoia’s transmission to prefer lower gears to give you additional power whenever you need it. You also have an optional Adaptive suspension which makes it much easier to modify ride height depending on a change in load.
Toyota Sequoia comes standard with a backup camera,
Toyota Star Safety System
, Toyota Safety Sense
, and you have an optional Blind Spot Monitoring system with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. The Sequoia also features all LED lighting including DRL and fog lights, that make driving in almost any condition a lot safer by providing a significant amount of visibility.
