What Is the 2020 Toyota Sequoia?
The 2020 Toyota Sequoia is a full-size SUV that seats up to eight in three rows. It’s powered by a standard 381-horsepower, 5.7-liter V-8 engine that pairs with a six-speed automatic transmission. Rear- and four-wheel-drive versions are offered, and the Sequoia competes with the Chevrolet Tahoe, Nissan Armada and Ford Expedition.
What’s New on the 2020 Toyota Sequoia?
Push-button start is now standard, as well as a touchscreen multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. There’s also a new off-road-oriented TRD Pro model with Fox shocks, 18-inch black forged-aluminum wheels, a front skid plate, aluminum running boards, a roof rack, a front grille with Toyota spelled out across it, LED headlights and foglights, black leather seats with red contrast stitching and all-weather floormats. A TRD exhaust system is available, too.
What Features in the 2020 Toyota Sequoia Are Most Important?
The Sequoia uses a truck-based platform and can tow up to 7,400 pounds when properly equipped. Standard convenience features include front and rear parking sensors, tri-zone automatic air conditioning, a power moonroof and a power-adjustable driver’s seat. Options include a power liftgate, power-operated third row, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, rear sunshades and a rear-seat entertainment system.
Standard active safety features include automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert and automatic high-beam headlights.
Should I Buy the 2020 Toyota Sequoia?
We like the Sequoia’s powerful V-8 drivetrain, and it offers a lot of value, but this SUV is showing its age — as its last-place finish in our 2018 Full-Size SUV Challenge reflects. If you’re shopping this class, the Tahoe and Expedition are worth a look before making your decision.
