2023 Toyota Sequoia SUV – The 2023 Toyota Sequoia SUV has been completely redesigned for 2023, and the update is much-needed. It had been about a decade and a half since the Sequoia, which shares a platform and other components with the Tundra pickup truck, had been completely redesigned. In today's fiercely competitive market, that's pretty close to forever — and, much like Tundra, the revamp goes a long way in making the Sequoia more appealing, with a more effective powertrain, enhanced interior, and more refinement all around to go with its increased size.
Alongside the design revamp, here are things that make the 2023 Toyota Sequoia SUV stands out:
1. Powerful Powertrain
The old V-8 engine has been replaced with a more modern and sophisticated 437-horsepower, twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 hybrid powertrain mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The V-8's impressive 583 pounds-feet of torque will not be missed: acceleration is quick and response is immediate. The Sequoia has plenty of power for highway merging and passing, but it feels perfectly calm and civilized in town.
2. Outstanding ride and handling
Even over rough pavement and bumps, the redesigned Sequoia provides a comfortable, well-damped, controlled ride. The steering is light and precise, and the brakes can bring things to a halt. Overall, Toyota has done an admirable job with this large 2023 Toyota Sequoia SUV. Making it a pleasant road-trip companion for logging miles or running errands around town.
3. Upgraded Cabin Interior
The cabin of the Sequoia has seen some of the most significant improvements in terms of material quality, look, and feel. Our limited trim was finished with high-end textures and leather, and the controls and switches felt substantial. As you progress through the trims, the luxury level increases, with real wood trim in the top Capstone trim.
4. Sleek Dashboard Appearance
The redesigned 2023 Toyota Sequoia includes many of the interior upgrades found in the 2022 Tundra, but with a sleeker and more upscale appearance. A 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, a 14.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto smartphone integration, a head-up display, and a panoramic moonroof are among the notable interior features offered for the 2023 Sequoia.
5. Features for Driver Assistance and Safety
The 2023 Toyota Sequoia SUV comes standard with all available driver-assistance features.
