The Toyota Sequoia is a full-size SUV sold mainly in the USA since 2001. This model was based on the Tundra pickup - which at the time was Toyota’s largest SUV, eclipsed only by the military Mega Cruiser.
It was first built at the Toyota Motor Manufacturing plant in Indiana, and then later in San Antonio, Texas. In terms of size, the Sequoia now sits between the 4Runner and the more premium Landcruiser.
A first-generation model debuted at the Northern American International Auto Show and, having been based on the Tundra, shared many of the same features such as sheet metal panels, the same engine, dashboard and chassis, the main difference were the disc brakes and use of the multi-link live axle rear suspension.
For its first year, the Sequoia was nominated for truck of the year and the trim options were just two, SR5 and Limited with a choice of either 2-wheel drive and four-wheel drive. All options had vehicle stability control as standard.
The second generation came to the market in 2007 and showcased a number of improvements at the Los Angeles Auto Show namely, a double-wishbone suspension to increase the comfort of the ride, keyless entry, DVD and Satellite navigation, backup camera, Bluetooth, JBL speaker system and hands-free climate control. With these extras, the new model weighed 500 lbs more than its predecessor.
A third-generation began selling in January 2022 and was manufactured in San Antonio. The new Sequoia was built on the GA-F platform with a 3.4-liter twin-turbo V6 engine as standard. There were five trim levels, SR5, Limited, Platinum, TRD Pro and the flagship model, the Capstone.
The towing capacity of this new version of the SUV was measured at a maximum of 7,000 lbs and it could seat up to 8 passengers using either a split-bench or dual captain chair configuration.
This model suffered a little due to its involvement in the Toyota recalls. Customers reported poor acceleration at low speeds and required a small shim to be fitted to restore fluidity.
