The 2013 Toyota Sequoia now offers just one engine choice for all trims: the 381-horsepower 5.7-liter V8. Also new is an available Blu-Ray DVD entertainment system and Toyota's Entune multimedia audio system.
The 2012 Toyota Sequoia SUV gains standard Trailer Sway Control and on Platinum models, an available Blind-Spot Monitor.
With the same exterior design it's had since 2001, Sequoia is Toyota's largest SUV. The Sequoia is capable of carrying up to eight passengers or 128 cubic-feet of cargo and is a true competitor to the industry leading twins from Chevrolet (the Tahoe and Suburban), the Ford Expedition and relative newcomers Dodge Durango and Nissan Armada. Toyota's big SUV is not perfect though, ranking near the bottom of the pack in terms of horsepower and torque. Then again, concerns about shortcomings under the hood may be offset by the assured integrity of the Sequoia's impressive resale value.
