Overview

What's New

The 2023 Toyota Sequoia receives a total redesign with hybrid power, greater towing capacity, and vastly improved efficiency. The all-new Sequoia retains body-on-frame construction and three rows of seating. The lineup gains a Capstone trim with indulgent interior appointments.

Choosing Your Toyota Sequoia

The Sequoia now comes in five trim levels: SR5, Limited, Platinum, TRD Pro, and Capstone. Base prices range from $59,895 to $78,495 including destination.

Engine Choices

Following years of thirsty V8 power, the Sequoia switches to a hybrid twin-turbo V6 powerplant. The 3.5-liter V6 and electric motor produce a total of 437 horsepower and 583 pound-feet of torque. A new 10-speed automatic transmission does the shifting, and buyers now have a choice of driving modes (Eco, Normal, Sport). Towing capacity has increased 26 percent to 9,520 pounds.

Four-wheel drive is standard on the TRD Pro and available on the other trims for $3,000. Rear-drive models are EPA-rated at 21 miles per gallon city, 24 mpg highway, and 22 combined. With 4WD, estimates ease to 19/22/20 (city/highway/combined).

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Sequoia is a full-size, three-row SUV with ample room for eight in the SR5 and Limited trims. The other trims feature second-row captain's chairs, so capacity dips to seven. The third row slides and reclines on all models.

Cargo space can't match the outgoing model, but the new Sequoia still offers plenty of room in the back. Buyers have up to 22.3 cubic feet to work with behind the third row and 49 cubic feet with it folded. With both rows down, the Sequoia can handle 86.9 cubic feet of stuff. An adjustable cargo shelf is standard.

Safety Features

The Sequoia comes loaded with driver assistance technology — all standard. Every model gets adaptive cruise control, surround-view cameras, front and rear automatic emergency braking, pedestrian and cyclist detection, automatic high beams, evasive steering assist, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, road sign recognition, and front and rear parking sensors.

A head-up display is optional on the Platinum ($600) and standard on the Capstone.

Connectivity

The infotainment system for the SR5 offer an 8-inch touchscreen, eight speakers, satellite radio, six USB ports, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The SR5 Premium Package ($2,635) includes a 14-inch touchscreen, which is standard on subsequent trims.

A 14-speaker JBL sound system, bundled with wireless phone charging, can be added to the Limited for $720. These items are standard starting with the Platinum.

The SR5 offers a cloth interior with heated eight-way power front seats, a 12.3-inch digital instrument display, a sunroof, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a universal home remote. The exterior receives full LED lighting and 18-inch alloy wheels. For $2,635, the SR5 Premium Package provides SofTex leatherette upholstery, a hands-free power liftgate, a power-folding third row, household-style power outlets in the rear cabin and cargo area, and the 14-inch touchscreen. Heated steering can be added for $150.

The TRD Sport Package ($2,195) equips the SR5 with 20-inch wheels, Bilstein shocks, and TRD trim elements throughout.

2023 Toyota Sequoia Limited – MSRP From $66,295

The Premium Package contents are standard on the Limited, along with ventilated front seats with driver memory, the heated steering wheel, chrome exterior trim, and 20-inch dark gray wheels. A panoramic sunroof becomes available for $500, and adaptive headlights cost $195.

2023 Toyota Sequoia Platinum – MSRP From $72,495

The Platinum picks up a genuine leather interior with 10-way power front seats, heated and ventilated second-row captain's chairs, and ambient lighting. The outside wears adaptive signature LED headlights and machined-finish black wheels. The panoramic sunroof is also standard. Options include power running boards ($1,005) and a rear air suspension for enhanced ride comfort ($1,045).

2023 Toyota Sequoia TRD Pro – MSRP From $78,495

Designed for adventure, the TRD Pro features an off-road suspension with FOX 2.5-inch internal bypass shocks and a TRD Pro front stabilizer bar. Other items include 18-inch matte black forged aluminum wheels and standard signature adaptive headlights. Comfort and convenience features are similar to the Limited.

2023 Toyota Sequoia Capstone – MSRP From $76,895

The Capstone builds on the Platinum with semi-aniline leather upholstery, open-pore wood interior trim, 22-inch dark chrome wheels, and standard power running boards. The rear air suspension remains optional.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2023 Toyota Sequoia Limited offers the best balance of price to equipment for a vehicle of this type. That said, an upgrade to the Platinum or Capstone is probably necessary for buyers accustomed to luxury-branded SUVs. The TRD Pro is a specialty ride for drivers willing to spend for full size and full capability.

Finally Fully Redesigned. After 15 long years, Toyota has finally introduced a third-gen Sequoia. The all-new SUV is beyond late to the party. Nearly all of the Sequoia’s competitors have been redesigned – some have been redesigned a few times – in the years that Toyota decided to play the waiting game and new competitors have come out. Still, we’re happy to see a new Sequoia arrive, even if it’s off by a decade.

While the Sequoia is fully redesigned for 2023, consumers will find a large lineup that covers all the bases. From the basic SR5, to the go-anywhere TRD Pro, and up to the luxurious Capstone, Toyota continues to offer the Sequoia in a wide range of flavors with little overlap.

Goodbye V8, Hello Hybrid. For the 2023 model year, Toyota has nixed the 5.7-liter V8 engine from the old model. Instead, the fully redesigned Sequoia comes standard with Toyota’s iForce MAX hybrid powertrain. It’s the same one that’s offered in the Tundra, but it’s standard with the Sequoia.

The powertrain consists of a twin-turbocharged 3.4-liter V6 engine, an electric motor, a 1.5-kW battery pack, and a 10-speed automatic transmission. Combined output is rated at 437 horsepower and 583 pound-feet of torque. Compared to the outgoing V8 engine, these are massive increases of 56 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque.

The power increase results in far more towing capacity than before. The 2023 Sequoia can tow up to 9,520 pounds, while the last-gen model maxed out at 7,400 pounds. While the noise of the V8 is easy to miss, the hybrid powertrain brings quick acceleration. The transfer of power between the V6 and electric motor is hardly noticeable, too.

Overall, the hybrid powertrain is a massive step up compared to the old V8. The few gripes we have include the 10-speed’s lack of immediacy and that towing large cargo with the Sequoia doesn’t feel as smooth as it does in the Tundra.

Toyota Sequoia

A Modern Interior. Beyond the engine, the next big change occurs on the inside. The old, outdated interior design has finally been updated with something that feels fresh and looks new. In addition to looking new, the 2023 Sequoia also gets a major tech upgrade.

All Sequoias, except for the base SR5 trim, come with a massive 14-inch touchscreen and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. The touchscreen is one of the largest in the class and sees the Sequoia go from last place to first in the tech wars. Toyota’s latest infotainment system is included, bringing “Hey, Toyota” voice recognition, wireless smartphone compatibility, an available Wi-Fi hot spot, and a cloud-based navigation system.

The Sequoia has seating for up to eight people, while available Captain’s chairs reduce seating capacity to seven. While the third row can slide up to 5.5 inches, it’s best left to children. A larger issue with the third row is that it doesn’t fold flat.

Consumers looking for a luxurious Sequoia will be happy to hear about the new Capstone trim. It’s the range-topping model in the lineup and brings unique touches that make the cabin feel far more luxurious. Walnut trim, ambient interior lighting, acoustic glass, and semi-aniline leather upholstery create a plusher Sequoia, but it’s not enough to compete against luxury trims from Jeep or GMC.

Lacks Refinement. On the outside, the 2023 Sequoia makes a bold statement. In a class where American automakers dominate, the Japanese Sequoia manages to have a feeling of its own with its design. If there’s one thing we wish Toyota had consulted an American competitor about, it’s the way the SUV drives on the road.

From behind the steering wheel, the Sequoia feels like a massive barge. While that’s expected, given the size of the SUV, the light steering and squishy brake pedal don’t inspire confidence. While the Sequoia doesn’t feel as buttoned-down as a few of its rivals, it makes up for it with a smooth ride, isolating passengers from outside noises and imperfections.

Final Thoughts. We applaud what Toyota has done with the 2023 Sequoia. The large SUV returns for its third generation with numerous upgrades. The standard hybrid powertrain, optional tech features, extensive lineup, and handsome design make the Sequoia more competitive than ever. Unfortunately, one has to question whether Toyota has done enough. Competitors offer more cargo space, more powerful engines, more towing capacity, and a more refined driving experience.

The Chevrolet Tahoe is available with a wide range of engines, can tow up to 8,400 pounds, is available in an off-road-oriented Z71 model, offers up to 123 cubic feet of cargo space, and comes with a 10.2-inch touchscreen as standard.

Despite its large size, the Jeep Wagoneer is highly capable off-road, has a plush ride, offers an enormous interior, can tow up to 10,000 pounds, is available with three 10-inch screens, and offers up to 117 cubic feet of cargo space.
