Toyota still hasn’t released any official information about their newest SUV, and they seem to be keeping things pretty under wraps. It’s expected we’ll hear more about the car by the end of this year, and that it’ll make its debut around the middle of 2022. Until then, let us fill you in on what we know about the 2023 Toyota Sequoia, so you can be in on the secret, too.
2023 Toyota Sequoia engine & exterior
Historically, the Toyota Sequoia has been closely related to the Toyota Tundra, which means the cars share many of the same features.
Car and Driverreports that both of the new Toyotas will use an updated platform and new six-cylinder powertrains, with the possibility of a hybrid model in the works.
The Sequoia will use an independent rear suspension setup, like many
three-row SUVs. It’s also expected to have an upgraded engine from the current Sequoia model, which has a 381 horsepower, V8 engine. It’s possible the new engine could be a twin-turbocharged, 3.4-liter V6 engine, according to
MotorTrend.It’s further speculated the battery will be a 288V Nickel Metal Hydride, but nothing is confirmed by Toyota just yet.
2023 Toyota Sequoia design & interior
While the Toyota Sequoia and the Toyota Tundra have similar features, the Toyota Sequoia is expected to have a sleeker and more poised look than the
pickup truck. Most three-row SUVs have a similar boxy look and the Toyota Sequoia probably won’t stray too far from that mold, but it will likely have sharper lines and styling.
The new car has been caught being test-driven on camera, although it was in pretty heavy camouflage. It appeared the car featured 18-inch alloy wheels, a less dramatic grille, and slight differences in the
headlightsfrom previous models.
It’s speculated the inside of the car will include changes like a new and improved dashboard and steering wheel, with the possibility of luxury features like massage seats and a heated steering wheel,
Top Electric SUVreports. It will also likely have a freestanding touchscreen infotainment system equipped with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for the navigation system, as well as a more intuitive driver information display and a head-up display.
2023 Toyota Sequoia price
Top Electric SUV reports that the 2023 Toyota Sequoia could have a starting price around $52,000. This is a bit pricier than the 2022 Toyota Tundra, which starts around $37,000.
Top Electric SUV also reports that the car’s main competitors will be the 2022 Ford Expedition and the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe, which start at $53,000 and $49,700, respectively.
