Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
For 2010, the Sequoia SR5 receives a new 4.6-liter V8 engine as standard equipment. This new V8 produces 310 horsepower and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Other changes for 2010 include a revised grille and tail lamps, standard front knee airbags and a revised standard equipment roster.
Substantial revisions to the 2008 Toyota Sequoia include a four-inch longer wheelbase, a one-inch increase in width and an all-new independent rear suspension. These combine to boost interior room. It also gets a strengthened frame, larger brakes, electronic stability control and an optional 5.7-liter V8.
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.
