  1. A bunch of you asked about the "mulit link rear suspension". Notice that Toyota doesn't say "multi-link independent suspension." It is in-fact a live axle, I crawled under the Sequoia myself. Fun fact: all suspensions are multi-link suspensions, there is no such thing as a "mono-link" suspension unless you're on a bicycle…

  2. Very ugly looking car specially in the white,from the side, and with the horrible black wheels. Maybe if it wasn't called Sequioa it could have been called x-Box

  3. If they allowed you to turn the car on then you could see the actual mpg ahead of the official announcement. The rear seat with the battery pack underneath severely limits the cargo area since the seat does not fold flat into the floor. To increase headroom (which was always a problem in Toyota suvs) they lowered the floor under the driver's seat. As a result of that the driver does sit lower than in the Tundra.Expect dealership terror due to limited availability of this monstrosity

  4. Thank you Alex! I actually canceled my Tesla 3 order to get this truck! Definitely getting the TRD PRO package..seems like it will be 57-63k USD.

  5. I like the styling more than the Tundra, since its hard to not think of Howard Elmer's mustache (from Truck King) with the front grille, as people have pointed out, lol. Had Toyota given the Tundra the Sequoia's grille, it would work out better. Though in the pickup, I wouldn't have minded if Toyota kept the 5.7l, but tried giving it a redesign and pairing it with that 10 speed.

  6. Think it's a big winner honestly. Losing the Land Cruiser sucked but this helps a LOT. And presumably more affordable.

    Great video as always.

  7. It deff has less space than the Tahoe. I like the grille but the side profile design sucks. Fail on the second row not sliding.

  8. Toyota really botched the design with the lack of the cargo space volume in the back of the Sequoia. the seats don’t fold into the floor!! 1/2 the cargo space is lost!!
    These vehicles are for moving people and their stuff. No room for any stuff?
    Looks like a rushed product

  9. Toyota really took away all the good things about the old sequoia.

    The old sequoia had THE most comfortable third row of any suv/minivan I have ever tried. Now it has crappy leg room because they don’t allow the middle seats to move for some stupid reason and the seat is super close to the floor like some crossover. Headroom also looks like trash.

    On top of that they had to remove the the rear roll down window. The current alternative is not too bad, but it’s not nearly as practical or frankly just as cool as the original roll down window.

    I’m willing to bet cargo space is also worse than the old sequoia.

    The new styling is great. The hybrid is great. But frankly Toyota dropped the ball with some pretty basic stuff and lowered themselves to the level of the old suburban.

    All they had to do was keep the inside ergonomics the same, but change the powertrain for improved fuel consumption.

  10. toyota should shoehorn a rav 4 prime drivetrain into a tacoma .. or jam a rav 4 prime drivetrain into a suv platform to compete with fords maverick. 5 foot bed, paired with toyotas new truck design language. a truck for city soy boys, wannabe handymen, and me.

  11. I kind of feel the out of date "hybrid" concept really ruins the car, makes the design of the second, the third row seats and trunk area really awkward, the whole thing becomes much more complicated, implies unnecessary maintenance burden, and the benefits are marginalized.

  12. I hate big wheels on SUV'S. The back corner which reminds me of the Durango is not a good thing because it makes the Sequoia look like a crossover.

  13. Great looks on the outside, some very weird looks when you open the tailgate – that 3-level shelf thing with the high load floor doesn't work for me *at all*. Oh well. To each their own.

  14. THE WHEELS ARE TOO SMALL. This is like what Cadillac comically used to do on its midsized sedans… Large wheel wells and stupidly small tires..

  15. ❌️❌️ very Disappointed in the Sequoia. It looks better. But that's it. I always buy Toyota. I own a prius, camry and Tundra right now. I waited for the new Sequoia XXL (same size as Suburban or Expedition Max). But, NO … TOYOTA just made the same size. WTH Toyota! The storage and 3rd row space is unforgivable. So tiny! TOYOTA YOU SELL VEHICLES IN AMERICA… MAKE THEM LARGER. WE ARE LARGER! I'm looking at Suburban and Expedition Max now… their Quality and reliability is getting better… while yours is declining. The Sienna has more space in third row AND storage. WTH Toyota! I don't want to settle for Toyota minimum specs ANYMORE. WTH TOYOTA!
