The fresh new 2023 Toyota Sequoia will hit markets next year. This incredible SUV will come with a new face, and it should introduce a more modern interior. The current generation debuted in 2008, and since then, it receives some minor upgrades over the years. However, rivals such as the Ford Expedition and Chevy Tahoe have also been updated, so it’s time to play catch up.
We have some renderings, and it seems the Toyota Sequoia could borrow some design cues from the latest Toyota RAV4. From the first images, we can see the same thinner headlights and taillights. On top of that, a more aggressive grille is present, like the LED headlights and running lights.
2023 Toyota Sequoia First Look
According to the new renderings, the upcoming 2023 Toyota Sequoia will get a completely new face. However, it still keeps the same design language and the same dimensions. The Sequoia’s appearance is standing out in a crowd, thanks to the new massive grille, front bumper, and attractive LED headlights. As we mentioned, the Sequoia features the same thinner headlights and taillights as the RAV4.
Moreover, if you’re looking for a more unique SUV, than the TRD Pro variant is a great option. This model comes with black BBS wheels, an additional protective skidplate, and a black roof rack. The Nightshade is available as well and is based on Limited trim. This one has darkened chrome badges, body molds, and other aesthetics.
Toyota did a good job inside. The cabin of the current model is still dated. Sure, the new 2023 Sequoia will gain definitively more equipment, and it will use better materials. The significant upgrade happened last time in 2017, and the cabin is still competitive.
With three rows of seats, the latest Sequoia can fit seven passengers, and is among the most rated in the class. It also includes a standard 7-inch touchscreen that features Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. We expect this aging interior to be replaced with a new one, featuring a bigger touchscreen and more amenities, especially on the upper trims.
2023 Toyota Sequoia Powertrain Specs
Under its hood, we expect the new 2023 Toyota Sequoia to boast the same engine as the predecessor. This model uses a 5.7-liter V8 engine that delivers 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. The power passes through a smooth six-speed automatic transmission and rear wheels as standard.
Moreover, the four-wheel-drive system is still optional on the standard one. Besides this aging engine, we presume that the manufacturer will introduce some of the new ones. The closest outcome is a hybrid powertrain that will deliver much better fuel efficiency. However, the manufacturer is still quiet about it.
Release Date, Price
The new 2023 Toyota Sequoia will probably hit the markets sometime in the next year. Many believe that it could debut in the first quartal next year, while sales might happen in late summer or early fall. We can expect a more aggressive face with the new generation, plenty of standard equipment, and more driver aids.
Pricing is also not officially revealed yet, but we presume the next Sequoia’s pricing to remain close to the current $51,700-$70,000. This full-size SUV is in the same class with familiar models such as the Chevy Tahoe, Nissan Armada, and Ford Expedition.
