Japanese auto giant, Toyota, just came through with the third-generation Sequoia for the 2023 model year, sporting series of long overdue upgrades. The Sequoia is a full-size three-row SUV derived from the Tundra pickup truck, and that explains the identical look as you’ll never be able to tell them apart when you’re staring at both models from the front.
The 2023 Sequoia is powered by the same twin-turbo V6 hybrid i-FORCE MAX engine as the Tundra, which is responsible for producing a combined 436 horsepower and 583 pound-feet of torque through either a 2WD system or a part-time 4WD option. The intensely aggressive and rugged looking SUV features with a new rack-mounted electric power steering system, an independent front suspension, a multi-link rear suspension system, and the optional Adaptive Variable Suspension and Load-Leveling Rear Height Control Air Suspension configurations.
Additional features include the Toyota Safety Sense 2.5 package which consists of a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Front and Rear Parking Assist with Automatic Braking, a Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Cross Traffic Alerts, Automatic High Beams, Road Sign Assist, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control with both Lane Departure Alerts and Steering Assist.
The interior is designed with ample space for passengers and cargo with second-row bench or captain’s chairs, and an exclusive sliding third-row with an Adjustable Cargo Shelf System. For the infotainment system, the 2023 Sequoia has the option of a massive 14-inch touchscreen console, which is powered by the new Toyota Audio Multimedia system that offers “Hey Toyota” voice controls, cloud-based navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, integrated Apple Music and Amazon Music support, and Wi-Fi/4G connectivity.
The 2023 Toyota Sequoia will be available this summer in SR5, Limited, Platinum, and Capstone trims. Check out the photos below.
