You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

What's New

The 2021 Toyota Sequoia may be one of the oldest SUVs on the market, but that hasn’t affected its overall appeal. For the new model year, it's now available with a Nightshade model. It adds black exterior trim pieces, black 20-inch wheels, black leather upholstery, and is available in three unique colors.

The changes don’t help the Sequoia be as comfortable, fuel-efficient, or high-tech as its competitors, but no update will. What this model needs is a full redesign. Unfortunately, we’re not sure of when that’s happening. And there's little reason for Toyota to update the vehicle. Consumers are more than happy to purchase the SUV as it sits – old age and all.

Choosing Your Toyota Sequoia

Toyota offers the Sequoia in six trim levels: SR5, TRD Sport, Limited, Nightshade Special Edition, TRD Pro, and Platinum. Pricing starts at $51,465 including destination for the base model and goes up to $67,515 for the Platinum.

Engine Choices

The Sequoia is available with one powertrain, which consists of a 5.7-liter V8 engine that’s paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. The engine is rated at 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. Towing capacity is rated at a maximum of 7,400 pounds for rear-wheel-drive models.

RWD is standard on the Sequoia on all models except for the TRD Pro, which comes with four-wheel drive. Four-wheel drive is a hefty $3,225 extra elsewhere in the lineup.

The Sequoia earns an EPA-estimated 13 miles per gallon city, 17 mpg highway, and 15 combined with RWD, while 4WD knocks the combined figure down to 14 mpg.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

In the SR5 and Limited trims, the Sequoia can seat up to eight people. With the available second-row captain’s chairs that cost $300 in the Limited trim, seating capacity goes down seven. The Nightshade Edition, TRD Sport, TRD Pro, and Platinum trims have seating for up to seven as standard.

The Sequoia offers some of the best cargo space in the class with 18.9 cubic feet behind the rear seats, 66.6 behind the second row, and 120.1 in total. The third row offers some impressive leg room, too, with 34.5 inches in the rear seats.

Safety Features

Every Sequoia comes with Toyota Safety Sense P as standard. The suite includes pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking. Other standard safety features include blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, traffic sign recognition, as well as front and rear parking sensors.


A 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Amazon Alexa compatibility is standard on the Sequoia. Wi-fi hot spot, an eight-speaker audio system, three USB ports, Bluetooth, HD radio, and satellite radio are also standard.

Higher trim levels can be fitted with a rear-seat entertainment system with a 9-inch display, navigation, and a 14-speaker JBL audio system.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2021 Toyota Sequoia feels old and outdated, but that’s what makes it so charming. Additionally, the TRD Pro trim is one of the most capable off-roaders in the class, as long as you can find a wide enough trail for the vehicle. While the TRD Pro trim is worth the money, we recommend the SR5 trim, as it comes with a decent list of standard features and can be fitted with the available Premium Package for an upscale feel.
