2016 Toyota Sequoia – stays one of the greatest Toyota/Lexus brand worth for families in search of an all-road vehicle with seating for up to 8 and towing capacity that is solid. The forthcoming year’s Sequoia stays a full-size, body-on-frame SUV with serious on and off road capabilities; noteworthy changes include safety features and some alterations to the vehicle’s infotainment options. In those ways, it is less like its rivals than it sounds.
2016 Toyota Sequoia Review
The cottage appointments of the Sequoia, naturally, feel like those of a high-end full-size pickup with two more rows of roomy wagon grafted on behind, in front. That means an instrument panel that is practical without looking too plain. For seating, you can specify dual captain’s chairs to replace a second-row seat, though it reduces the capacity to seven. Storage space is considerable once the third-row seats are folded in place, which is made simple thanks to a power-folding alternative. The Sequoia isn’t quite a luxury vehicle, but it is a kind, well-built one. On the other hand, the third row is just good for children or small adults, and it’s tougher to get back there.
The Toyota Sequoia 2016 will be available in three trim levels: Platinum, Limited and SR5.
2016 Toyota Sequoia Engine
It offers all the electricity any SUV owner will want, although there is only one drivetrain for the Sequoia. The Toyota 5.7-liter V8 engine creates 381 horsepower and 401 lb-feet of torque at 3,500 RPM, paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Sequoias with 4WD have a two-speed transfer case and multiple drive modes for different scenarios, a set up similar to drivetrains on pickup trucks. This also means a pickup truck-like 4WD mileage of just 14 mpg united…but on the other hand, the RWD Sequoia only does 1 mpg better. Shoppers who can get by with a little less capability and are searching for substantially better fuel economy might locate the 8-passenger AWD Highlander crossover an acceptable alternative.
The Sequoia’s official EPA rating of 13 mpg city, 17 highway, 15 joined in rear-drive spec might not be so horrid considering its people- and gear-hauling capacity. Ratings for the four-wheel drive Sequoia.
2016 Toyota Sequoia Price
The cost has, while the Sequoia itself hasn’t evolved. The base price on the top Platinum version has climbed from $56,285 to $65, 715. Eight years of economic inflation that is straightforward would make the 2008 version’s $56,285 price $62,548 in today’s dollars. Standard equipment now includes much that was once discretionary, including laser-based adaptive cruise control, a flip-down entertainment system with the 9.0-inch display for the back seat, and a backup camera. The base SR5 model starts at $46,320 with rear-wheel drive or almost $20,000 less for the same gutsy motor and towing capacity of 7000-plus pounds. Now in 2007, we consider that a more powerful value is represented by the SR5. It, too, has regular navigation, second- and third-row retractable sunshades, some USB ports, a windshield wiper de-icer, running boards, skid plates on four-by-four versions, and more.
The Toyota Sequoia can offer premium amounts of refinement and interior amenities, though not a Lexus model, and all trims tend to offer content that is excellent for the dollar. The Sequoia is also bulkier than the Highlander and 4-Runner, with true 4WD for those that want it. Buyers brought to Toyota’s reputation for quality, durability, and dependability will find in the Sequoia an interesting choice to the GM and Ford vehicles that have long dominated the full-size SUV marketplace.
