2020 Toyota Sequoia Review

from the expert editorial team

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.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
