After more than a decade, Toyota’s full-size SUV is getting a makeover, and it’ll most likely take features from the new Tundra, such as a hybrid V-6 engine.
- Toyota shared a detail image of the new Sequoia full-size SUV.
- It’s expected to use the same new twin-turbo V-6 engine as the 2022 Tundra pickup and also to offer the new iForce MAX hybrid powertrain that makes 437 horsepower.
- The new Sequoia should make its debut soon and arrive by the end of the year.
Toyota’s venerable full-size SUV, like the Tundra, will soon get its first new generation in over a decade, as the firm released the first teaser image of the new 2023 Sequoia’s right rear quarter. The huge SUV will be closely tied to the Tundra truck, like in the previous two versions, and will virtually replace the Land Cruiser in Toyota’s US portfolio.
Toyota’s new TNGA-F body-on-frame platform, which also supports the Tundra and the global Land Cruiser, will be used to build the Sequoia. The Tundra now has rear coil springs, but the Sequoia, like the Chevy Tahoe and Ford Expedition, will keep its independent rear suspension.
