2021 Toyota Sequoia: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Joel Patel
Automotive Editor - July 9, 2020

Model Preview

The Toyota Sequoia is one of the oldest SUVs on the market, as the last time the vehicle received a full redesign was in 2008. 2021 won’t be the year for an overhaul, but the Sequoia will receive a new trim for the model year. Other than that, we expect the 2021 Sequoia to be a carryover model.

Nearly untouched for roughly 12 years, the Sequoia still looks identical to the model from 2008. An imposing front end features a large grille, chunky headlights, unassuming rear taillights, and enormous bumpers. Herculean in size, the Sequoia is not only a dinosaur in size, but also in appearance. The 2021 Sequoia will look identical to the current model. Large dials, a small infotainment system, enormous seats, and sturdy materials reveal the Sequoia has had trouble ditching its pickup truck underpinnings on the inside.

Toyota will introduce the Nightshade Special Edition for the 2021 model year. Based on the SE trim level, the Nightshade comes with black leather upholstery, black exterior trim pieces, and is offered in a special exterior color called Blizzard Pearl.

We expect the 2021 Sequoia to come with the same tech features as the current model. All trims come with a 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa, Wi-Fi hot spot, and two USB ports as standard. Navigation, a premium JBL audio system, and a rear-seat entertainment system are available.

Toyota Sequoia

No changes are expected to take place under the hood for the new model year. That means power for the Sequoia will continue to come from a 5.7-liter V8 engine that produces 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive are standard. Four-wheel drive will also be available.

Toyota Safety Sense P will continue to be standard on the 2021 Sequoia. The suite includes forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams. Blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are also standard.

Pricing & Release Date

Toyota did not provide any information on when the 2021 Sequoia will go on sale. The SUV has an estimated on-sale date of August 2020.

Pricing hasn’t been officially announced, but we expect the 2021 Sequoia to fall within the same range as the current model. The current Sequoia costs $51,230 to $67,270 (including destination).

This large SUV competes with the Ford Expedition, Chevrolet Tahoe, and Nissan Armada.
