The 2023 Toyota Sequoia is here and it’s essentially a Tundra in SUV form. It shares a lot of parts and technology with the 2022 Tundra as we’re going to talk about a little later in the video.
It goes on sale this summer and will be available in SR5, Limited, Platinum, TRD Pro, and Capstone models starting at around $50,000 for the base SR5 all the way up to around $70,000 for the fully loaded luxury Capstone model.
Unlike the Tundra, the 2023 Sequoia comes standard with the iForce MAX hybrid setup which has an electric motor placed in between the the twin-turbo V-6 and 10-speed automatic transmission. This hybrid setup gives a total power output of 437 horsepower and 583 pound-feet of torque.
The Sequoia also shares its platform with the Tundra, Land Cruiser and Lexus LX however it’s cut shorter in the SUV form.
Another interesting addition to this generation is the solid rear axle instead of an independent setup we saw in the previous-generation.
You do have air suspension and adaptive dampers as an option and if you’re planning on going off-road the TRD Pro model comes with 2.5-inch Fox dampers and 33-inch Falken Wildpeak all-terrain tires. What’s really cool is that you can now equip a base SR5 with a TRD off-road package.
This adds a locking rear differential, Bilstein dampers, black 18-inch TRD wheels, off-road drive modes and off-road cruise control. This is most likely the model I would buy.
The inside of the 2023 Toyota Sequoia is as expected very much like the interior of the Tundra.
You’ll see an 8.0-inch touchscreen as standard on the SR5 model with the full 14.0-inch touchscreen available as an option.
You also have a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability as standard.
