Driving Impression

“”

Stand on the gas pedal, and the Sequoia’s V8 delivers impressive performance. Most of the V8’s available torque output comes to life at low engine speed: around 2200 rpm. As a result, an unloaded Sequoia can accelerate to 60 mph in less than seven seconds. Pretty quick, that, especially given Sequoia’s weight.

Despite its outmoded design, Toyota’s 6-speed automatic operates reliably.

When equipped with four-wheel drive, a two-speed transfer case, containing a Torsen limited-slip differential, regulates the power split between front and rear wheels. On difficult terrain, the differential can be locked. Toyota’s electronic traction control system can help limit wheelspin, too.

Among the Sequoia’s admitted merits is a composed ride, as the truck-type suspension manages to absorb plenty of rough spots and bumps. Some tossing of passenger heads may occur when taking a corner, largely because of the Sequoia’s high center of gravity. Platinum trim includes a variable air suspension that can smooth the ride further.

The new TRD Sport edition adds Bilstein shocks and front and rear anti-roll bars.

Fuel economy is EPA-rated at a mere 13/17 mpg City/Highway, or 15 mpg Combined. Four-wheel drive sinks the Combined estimate slightly further, to 14 mpg Combined.

Walk Around

“”

Broad, curvaceous shoulders and a wide stance make it reasonably clear that the massive Sequoia is truck-based. Overall, Toyota’s largest SUV lacks angular elements and looks more rounded than comparable models from other manufacturers.

Details include rounded accents on the tailgate. A tall window line tends to make the Sequoia look even heftier than it is in reality.

The current grille and LED headlights seems somewhat out of place, though they give the Sequoia a noticeable presence. Special appearance features on the new TRD Sport include blacked-out body trim and chrome surrounding the grille.

Interior Overview

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

The big Sequoia isn’t as space-efficient or comfortable as it appears to be, and the cabin has been showing its age for some time.

Prices are lofty, yet the interior falls well short of luxurious. Materials look cheap, dominated by hard plastic pieces, especially, matte-metallic plastic trim along the central console. Fit and finish win no prizes, either. Climate-control dials function well enough, but look especially outmoded.

Cargo capacity is undeniably appealing to large families and drivers who haul plenty of luggage or large items. With all seatbacks up, cargo volume totals 18.9 cubic feet, expanding to 66.6 cubic feet with the third row folded down.

Seats up front are wide and soft. Second-row seats can slide fore/aft to reapportion legroom, but the standard bench isn’t such a pleasant place. Captain’s chairs can be substituted, for greater comfort. The third row folds to boost cargo space, but it’s not acceptable for adults. Upper trim levels include power-folding seatbacks in the third row.

Storage cubbyholes and cupholders are bountiful, but not every seat gets a USB power port. Toyota’s easy-to-use Entune infotainment system works with a connected smartphone, and its navigation interfaces is more intuitive that most.

Summary

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

Toyota Sequoia is past its prime, far behind competitors. Standard equipment impresses, but Sequoias lack conveniences that contemporary SUVs offer. Prices rise swiftly, approaching $70,000 when fully loaded. Add meager fuel economy, and the Sequoia sounds like a vehicle that can be recommended only if it’s a good deal.
