2022 Toyota Sequoia: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

The full-size Toyota Sequoia hasn’t been through a complete redesign since 2009, but it has seen a few visual tweaks to keep pace with its slow-changing class. With it being such a niche vehicle, we expect the 2022 Sequoia to be a carryover vehicle.

The Toyota Sequoia’s last big refresh came in 2018 when it received a new front end that included updated headlights, a refreshed grille, and a new bumper. This facelift was enough to keep this large SUV soldiering on for another handful of years. We expect the 2022 Sequoia o continue marching to the same design beat.

While Toyota did a good job massaging the Sequoia’s exterior, its interior still dated. Sure, it’s a significant upgrade from the circular-gauged mess from 2008 through 2017, but it still lacks the pizzaz of today’s models. It feels an awful lot like a warmed-over pickup. That said, it does well at staying as modern as possible with a standard 7-inch touchscreen that features Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. We expect this aging interior to remain the same in the 2022 Sequoia.

Under its hood, the current Sequoia boasts a 5.7-liter V8 that delivers 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. This power passes through a six-speed automatic transmission and out to the rear wheels or through a four-wheel-drive system. While old, this setup is still competent, and we expect it to remain the same in the 2022 Sequoia.

Despite its age, the current Sequoia comes well-equipped with standard safety gear, including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, and high-beam assist. Crash-test scores aren’t available, as the IIHS and NHTSA haven’t performed them – and likely never will.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official on-sale date set for the 2022 Sequoia, but we expect a late-summer or early-fall debut based on Toyota fleet order guides.

Pricing is also not official. With no changes coming, we expect the 2022 Sequoia’s pricing to remain close to the current $51,765-$70,610 (destination fees included).

This full-size SUV will compete with the Chevy Tahoe, Nissan Armada, and Ford Expedition.
