After 15 years, the Sequoia has been given an overhaul.
Featuring many styling elements shared with its platform stablemate Tundra, the new Sequoia dials up in seemingly every quantifiable measurement. The 2023 has more power (standard hybrid V6 with 437 horsepower, 583 lb-ft), more towing capacity (9000 pounds), is more luxurious (there is a new top-of-the-pile Capstone trim), and is more rugged via the TRD Pro model.
It is a known fact that Sequoias are among the most durable vehicles on the road, with an estimated 7.5% of them rolling around with over 200,000 miles on the odometer. We are very much looking forward to hearing about pricing but expect it to be within a few thousand dollars of the outgoing model’s $50,500 base price.
Five trim levels will be offered: SR5, Limited, Platinum, TRD Pro, & Capstone. Two-wheel drive will be standard on all models with 4WD optional (4WD standard on TRD Pro models). Colors will include some classics like Wind Chill Pearl, Midnight Black, and Smoked Mesquite…but recent fan favorites such as Army Green, Lunar Rock, and the 2022-23 TRD Pro-specific color of Solar Octane will also be offered.
The new Sequoia was designed at Toyota’s Calty design center in California and will be built at their manufacturing plant in San Antonio, Texas. Deliveries start in Summer 2022. To say that we are excited is an understatement. We expect these to be tremendously popular and are excited to see them on the road for years (and years and years) to come!
