  1. I like the current sequoia. But I like this new look. Its more conservative in a way. It will sell more now that their bringing back a rear live axle. Way to go toyota.

  2. I’m sure once they have turbo waste gate issues, they’ll have to remove the entire body of the sequoia and that will cost some serious bucks and probably even more than what the tundra costs. I hope they get those turbo flaws worked out… nice video Andre. 👍👍👍

  3. WOW as a labor and delivery nurse speaking, the chief engineer feels like he just had a baby 😝. Hit my funny bone 🦴 because guys really have no clue but I really like the way he explains the new Sequoia and the episode about the Tundra. You guys rock especially Andre. Is that a Jersey accent you have?

  4. So essentially the new sequoia is the landcruiser for American market. I can live with that. It looks amazing! So much better than the tundra! Now to wait for pricing which I’m afraid might be too high for most lower middle class Americans.

  5. Pretty late but leak pictures showed that they tested independent system Sequoia , possible they tested it and then postpone or may be coming later .

  6. There’s nothing subjective about the looks. :). It’s far and away better looking than the new Tundra. They should just both have this front end. Period.

  7. The issue with this truck and the reason it won’t work for our family is the third row. In my GX 470 my seats are removable, easily! This gives a good storage space since we don’t need the third row. Here it appears the third row only folds down but does not easily come out (or come out at all???) forcing you to use the higher load floor and reducing capacity. It seems like the worst possible storage solution they could have come up with. WTF Toyota?

  8. That was a good interview. Mr. Swear should have ballparked the mpg. We need get an idea how much the mileage has improved due to using hybrid technology. If it is marginal that would be disappointing. If it is significant that would be great. The one thing that raised questions for me was the third row. We don't need a third row and prefer flat carrying capacity. If the third row doesn't fold down flat or is not removable, then that would be a terrible usability failure.

  9. I wonder if it wasn’t selling because of the exterior design. I was never big fan.
    The new sequoia is a lot better. I think it is going to appeal to lot more people.

  10. I really love the TRD-Pro, because it does not look flashy. Love the durable fenders, this might protect it from door-bangs in the parking lot. This is why I like the TRD-Pro. It looks more durable to bumps and scrapes.

    Reply
  11. Is there a TRD-Off Road (Cheaper version) and what does one loose on TRD-Off Road versus TRD-Pro? Is it just Fox shocks that are lost, or low-range transfer case. Does the Sequoia even have a low-range transfer case?

    Reply
  12. The lack of the roll-down rear window is a deal-breaker, I am more likely to go Ford Expedition Timberline now, since it has 3.73 locking rear axle and low-range transfer case.

    Reply
  13. I went to another channel to find out if there ia a low-range transfer case and what the axle ratio is. This journalist said the axle ratio is 10.5 Inches. These journalist better go back to school, because they don't know what they are talking about, they don't understand specifications, or they leave out the specifications all-together.

    Reply
  14. By the way, I meant the so-called journalist on other channels. The TFL-journalist are the best, most professional, journalist in the business.

    Reply
  15. Andre, you did mention Sequoia will indeed have a TRD-Off-Road version. I am sorry that I did not listen close enough. I would love to see a show that exclusively compares sequoia TRD-Pro versus TRD-Off Road, Compare axle ratios, Suspension, Tires, everything gained or lost by both flavors.

  16. I wish Toyota will think of producing a non-hybrid twin turbo version of this beast so one can have other options to choose from

    Reply
  17. Well great point but WHY WHY WHY ? Would they not do hooks in the front ? That truly baffles me you guys know a lot about trucks so WHY ? Please

    Reply
  18. Ok well I guess I should watch the hole vid before asking ? Lol ! They should have keep the sliding glass that’s just a staple to the Toyota brand I don’t believe any other company has the sliding glass they should have not let it go 🥲

  19. I couldn't help but notice th last two thumbnails on this channel are vehicles with amber lights in the grill. Im pretty sure the raptor made that popular originally back in the 2000's. One decade later its looking like those amber grill lights are catching on! Doesnt even the jeep 392 have em now? Lol. Watch them end up being on everything some day. It would look funny on so many vehicles. Slap em on a honda crv and rav 4 next 🤘🙏 haha

  20. Literally no trunk. Completely useless as a family vehicle. So disappointing. Why oh why don't they offer a long wheelbase like the domestics? This could be the perfect vehicle and they just wrecked it

    Reply
  21. Will moving the the 3rd row in & out all together be an easy made option with a built in way to cover the mechanisms for a added cargo space and/or overland builds?

    Reply
  22. I want this thing. The front end is much better than the Tundra. I have 21 Highlander XSE and I love it. The rear of the 2023 Sequoia reminds me of it.

    Reply
  23. As a current Sequoia owner with over 200K on the clock and flawless miles, I unfortunately nave no desire to replace a hybrid battery at 100K+ miles on the new Sequoia. I will go ahead and buy the old one before the line closes.
