If you’re looking for an SUV that has handsome styling, a relatively efficient hybrid powertrain, and a quiet cabin, look no further than the 2024 Toyota Sequoia. The full-size SUV will reportedly debut sometime next year, riding on the same platform as the Tundra pickup truck. Inside, this based SUV truck offers three rows, providing seating for up to eight passengers. Thanks to that, Sequoia competes with big rivals such as the Chevy Tahoe and Ford Expedition.
The new model as standard uses the latest Tundra’s iForce MAX hybrid system, which combines a 3.4-liter V-6 engine with an electric motor, delivering a total of 437 horsepower.
2024 Toyota Sequoia Facelift
The 2024 Toyota Sequoia will only receive a mid-cycle upgrade. In case you didn’t know, the last model was redesigned a few months ago, riding on the same underpinnings as the new Tundra, Land Cruiser, and the Lexus LX600. Naturally, depending on the trim level, the design of the Sequoia will change a bit. With the standard model, you’ll get a wheel size of 18 inches, while bigger 22 inches are available on upper trims.
The Capstone’s wheels are the most unique because it has a chrome finish. You can get this model in colors such as white, black, silver, and gray. Premium trim is the most recognized thanks to Supersonic Red color, just like the TRD Pro model with its Solar Octane, a deep orange.
Just like the outgoing model, the new 2024 Toyota Sequoia comes with a third row of seats as standard equipment. There is inside enough room for eight-passenger. As standard, this SUV offers cloth upholstery and some wood and chrome trim. Higher trim levels add heated and cooled second-row seats, a panoramic sunroof, and a premium stereo system.
You’ll also get a large 14.0-inch touchscreen, which can be also found in the latest Tundra. The SR5 base model offers smartphone mirroring and other connectivity options including a Wi-Fi hotspot.
2024 Toyota Sequoia Engine Specs
The 2024 Toyota Sequoia is an SUV that comes with a solo engine. It comes with the iForce MAX hybrid powertrain that’s available optionally in the Tundra pickup. This powertrain combines a twin-turbo 3.4-liter V-6 engine and an electric motor. Thanks to that, it’s able to produce a total output of 437 hp and 583 pound-feet of torque.
As far as we know, the Tundra’s 10-speed automatic transmission will be also available on the new Sequoia SUV as well. Rear-wheel drive is standard, while four-wheel drive comes as optional on most versions. It is also worth mentioning that FWD is standard on the off-road-oriented TRD Pro model.
How Much Will the New 2024 Toyota Sequoia Cost?
Like the outgoing model, the new 2024 Toyota Sequoia will be available with a few different trim levels. There are exactly five of them, starting with the base SR5, which costs $59.795.
The other models include Limited at $66.000, Platinum $72.000, Capstone $76.000, and the most expensive TRD Pro at $78.000. All models, as we said, are expected to debut sometime next year, probably in the second half of 2023.
