Check Out the New Toyota Sequoia

December 20, 2017

The Sequoia has been in production for 17 years now with only one major update back in 2008. Well, Toyota decided to give their biggest SUV a new look, both inside and out. And bring its active-assist safety technology up-to-date. The 2018 Toyota Sequoia is still enormous and powered by the same engine, but now it looks more like a brand new Toyota SUV.


How much does a 2018 Sequoia cost?


Base MSRP for the SR5 Sequoia is $48,300. The TRD Sport starts out at $51,015, the Limited is $56,795, and the Platinum is $64,010.


Does the Sequoia have multiple trim levels?


Toyota offers the 2018 Sequoia on four different trims. The base trim is the SR5. That is followed by the TRD Sport, Limited, and Platinum. Each trim level is available in either two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. There are also two different engine options for the four-wheel drive models.


What type of engine does the 2018 Sequoia have?


Two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive Sequoias come with a 5.7-L iFORCE V8 DOHC 32-Valve with Dual Independent Variable Valve Timing with Intelligence. It produces 381 hp at 5600 rpm and 401 lb-ft of torque at 3600 rpm. Four-wheel-drive Sequoias can be equipped with the 5.7-L V8 32-Valve E85 Flex Fuel engine instead. The Flex Fuel engine runs on both gasoline and ethanol-based fuel.


How much cargo room is there in the new Sequoia?


There is a total of 120.1 cubic feet of cargo space in the Sequoia with the second and third rows of seating folded flat. Behind the second row of seats, there is 66.6 cubic feet of space and behind the third row that is 18.9 cubic feet.


Does the 2018 Sequoia come with the latest infotainment technology?


The Sequoia comes with Toyota’s Entune entertainment system. The features vary slightly, depending on which trim you get. The basic Multimedia Bundle includes an AM/FM radio, CD player with MP3/WMA playback capability, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, eight speakers, two USB ports, iOS connectivity, Bluetooth wireless connectivity, and navigation.

The Sequoia Platinum trim level has the Entune Premium JBL system which includes 14 JBL GreenEdge speakers. This system is an available option on the Limited.

A back-seat Blu-ray Disc player comes standard in the Platinum and is an available option in the Limited trims. The system includes a 9″ display screen, wireless headphones, a wireless remote and a rear audio system with 120V AC power outlet and RCA jacks.


How much weight can the new Sequoia tow?


The 2018 Sequoia can tow between 7,000 and 7,400 pounds, depending on the trim level and whether you get the two- or four-wheel-drive model.


Does the 2018 Sequoia come with hi-tech safety features?


In addition to Toyota’s Safety Sense-P active-assist safety features, all Sequoia trims come with the Star Safety System. This suite of safety features includes Anti-lock Brakes, Vehicle Stability Control, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Brake Assist and Smart Stop Technology. The Sequoia also comes standard with Blind Spot Monitor lane change assist, energy-dissipating interior trim, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, front and rear parking assist sonar and an anti-theft system with engine immobilizer.


How fuel efficient is the new Sequoia?


The new Sequoia is not very fuel efficient but it is about average for such a big SUV. It gets 13 mpg in the city and 17 mpg on the highway.


What did Toyota change on the 2018 Sequoia?


The most noticeable difference is the new grille shape and a different insert for each trim. There is a new little extra touch of chrome added to the bumper on the higher trims. Each trim level now comes with fog lights and LED headlights. Midnight Black Metallic, Shoreline Blue Pearl, and Toasted Walnut Pearl have been added to the list of available paint colors, bringing the total number of paint color options up to eight.

Toyota’s Safety Sense-P suite of active-assist safety features now comes standard on each trim. Safety Sense-P consists of adaptive cruise control, pedestrian detection, lane-departure alert and automatic high-beams.

The interior was updated, too. The 2018 Sequoia now has an updated gauge cluster that includes a revamped information display. It has a new, updated center console, too, that offers a nice covered storage compartment and power outlets.


Does the 2018 Sequoia have room for seven people?


The Sequoia actually seats seven or eight, including the driver, depending on the trim level and available options. For example, the Limited comes with seating for eight, but you can get it with second-row captain’s chairs which changes it to a seven-passenger SUV. The Sequoia has three rows of seats.
