Vehicle Overview

The Sequoia is Toyota's largest SUV, and it's offered with a choice of V-8 engines: a 4.6-liter V-8 and a more powerful 5.7-liter V-8. The Sequoia can seat up to eight people. Competitors include the Chevrolet Tahoe, Ford Expedition and Nissan Armada.

New for 2012
Trailer-sway control is a new standard feature for all models, and a blind spot warning system is standard on the Platinum trim level.  Trailer-sway control uses the stability system's sensors to detect unintended side-to-side movement at the rear wheels while towing and uses the antilock braking system to counteract yaw caused by unwanted trailer motion. The color of the instrument panel changes from silver to black, too.

Exterior
The Sequoia sports a two-box shape, but it doesn't have bump strips on the side doors. Like the related Toyota Tundra pickup truck, the Sequoia wears a large chrome grille. Exterior features include:

  • Available 18- or 20-inch rims
  • Power moonroof
  • Running boards
  • Power-operated and heated side mirrors
  • Fog lamps
  • Daytime running lights
  • Roof rack
  • Available power liftgate


Interior
The Sequoia can accommodate up to eight people in its three rows of seats that can be covered in either fabric or leather. The second row slides out of the way when you lift a lever, making it easy to get to the third-row seats. Large air-conditioning knobs dominate the middle of the dash. Bluetooth connectivity and a USB port are standard. Interior features include:

  • Seating for eight people, or seven with second-row captain's chairs
  • Three-zone automatic air conditioning
  • Power windows and locks
  • Keyless entry
  • CD stereo
  • Tilt/telescoping steering wheel
  • Cruise control
  • Available power-operated third row
  • Available touch-screen navigation system with 7-inch screen and backup camera
  • Available DVD entertainment system with 9-inch screen
  • Available heated/ventilated front seats, heated second-row captain's chairs


Under the Hood
The Sequoia's  base engine is a 4.6-liter V-8. A 5.7-liter V-8 is standard on Limited and Platinum Sequoias. Both V-8s team with a six-speed automatic transmission. The Sequoia has a maximum tow rating of 7,400 pounds. Mechanical features include:

  • 310-hp, 4.6-liter V-8 with 327 pounds-feet of torque
  • 381-hp, 5.7-liter V-8 with 401 pounds-feet of torque
  • Four-wheel-independent suspension
  • Available air suspension system with load-leveling feature


Safety
Front and rear parking sensors are optional. Standard safety features include:

  • Side-impact airbags for the front seats
  • Front knee airbags
  • Side curtain airbags for all rows of seats
  • Electronic stability system
  • Traction control
  • Antilock brakes that incorporate brake assist and electronic brake-force distribution 
  • Trailer-sway control
