Available with spacious and comfortable seating for eight, Sequoia has room for the whole family, their friends, and even their pets. For adventures not requiring eight-passenger capacity, the Platinum model offers second-row passenger's captain's chairs, climate controls and RCA jacks for the rear-seat Blu-ray Disc™ player.
Whether your adventure involves home improvement materials, camping gear or a new keyboard, with all the seats folded flat, Sequoia’s 120.1 cu. ft. cargo capacity behind the front seats is ready for it. And with the available power liftgate, you can access this space easier with just the press of a button on the key fob. You can close it the same way, too, or use a button inside the cargo area or on the dash.
Sequoia makes it easy to position yourself for any adventure. With one button, the Platinum and Limited models offer power reclining and fold-flat third-row seats that adjust to accommodate whomever or whatever you’d like them to.
With standard sliding, 60/40 split folding, second-row seats and third-row seats that fold flat on the SR5 and Limited models, loading and unloading gear doesn’t take time away from the adventure at hand. Plus the 60/40 rear split-fold seat design gives you even more options for what to bring.
When it comes to storage, Sequoia's vast cargo area is just one of the options. The dual-level glove compartment with a larger space below and smaller one above lets you keep things well within reach. Standard on the Platinum model is a multi-functional second row center console, giving passengers seated there additional cupholders, heated seat controls and extra storage space to call their own.
From skis to surfboards to sleeping bags, Sequoia’s standard roof rack with available cross bars lets you conveniently carry the extra gear you want for your road trip, while the cross bars that attach to them add even more flexibility.
Whether your adventure calls for boats, trailers or even other vehicles, you'll appreciate how easy Sequoia's 7,400-lb. towing capacity makes it to bring them along for the ride.
When you're towing, sometimes a wind gust or shifting load causes the trailer to sway. Trailer-Sway Control (TSC) manages engine torque and applies brake pressure at each individual wheel as needed to help maintain control of the trailer.
When towing heavier items like a boat or trailer on hilly terrain, Sequoia's TOW/HAUL Mode selects transmission shift points to help optimize your engine’s power.
The Platinum model features Electronically Modulated Air Suspension. To compensate for changes in load, it lets the driver adjust the ride height based on the amount of cargo. It also means Sequoia’s ride is always the same: smooth.
With the Platinum, you’ll have heated/ventilated front seats that will help you cool down or warm up wherever your journey takes you.
Cool down in Death Valley. Warm up in the Sierras. In Sequoia, regardless of the climate outside, you can adjust the weather inside. With second-row climate controls, you set the temperature to make it as comfortable as you want it to be.
If your adventure involves a long drive along remote highways or sparsely populated roads, you’ll be glad the Platinum is equipped with Dynamic Laser Cruise Control, which helps maintain a constant preset distance between you and the vehicle ahead based on driving lanes and vehicle speed.
Take in more of the world with Sequoia's one-touch tilt/slide power moonroof with sliding sunshade. Imagine your passengers looking up and seeing the treetops of a tree-lined drive to the country, or a sky full of stars driving through a desert night. The moonroof doesn't just open up the cabin—it opens the entire experience.
Sequoia gives you the power to stay connected, no matter how far your travels take you. The 12V aux outlet is perfect for cell phone chargers, additional lights or any other 12V devices you bring with you on the trip. And on Platinum, the available rear-seat Blu-ray Disc™ entertainment system features a rear 115V AC power outlet, so you can power your need for your video games, laptops or almost any other device.
Sequoia Limited takes high tech even higher with the Entune™ Premium Audio system with Navigation and App Suite. With Entune® App Suite, you have a collection of popular apps including Bing™, iHeartRadio, MovieTickets.com, OpenTable®, Pandora®, Yelp® and Facebook Places — all just a touch away. Need info on your stocks, weather, sports or fuel prices? No problem. Real-time info is included, even your local weather forecast to help plan your day.
Available on SR5 and standard on Limited and Platinum (includes JBL®), the Entune™ Premium Audio with Navigation features a customizable screen with up to three different displays all on one screen. This feature allows you to choose between whole screen, split screen or three panels to display three of your most important information screens such as Navigation, HD Radio™, weather or any other combination best suited to you.
The available JBL Synthesis® sound system with 14 custom-engineered speakers including subwoofer, plus an auxiliary audio jack, USB port, and hands-free phone capability with Bluetooth® wireless streaming, make you feel like you are in the front row for every performance.
Thanks to an available integrated backup camera automatically displaying what the camera sees behind the vehicle when you shift into Reverse, Sequoia′s backup camera helps you avoid objects that might otherwise be out of view.
With Sequoia, you set the soundtrack for your adventure thanks to a USB port that enables iPod® connectivity and control. There′s an auxiliary input jack for other music players, and the available system also features Bluetooth® hands-free phone capability and audio streaming.
Sequoia offers back passengers the luxury of a Blu-ray Disc™ player to watch movies, making it the first production vehicle SUV in the world to offer high-definition rear-seat entertainment. On Platinum models, the rear-seat Blu-ray Disc™ entertainment system includes a 9-in. display and two wireless headphones. To make the going even more fun, this system has two RCA jacks, so passengers can plug in virtually any audio or video player they bring with them.
Whether it’s the top of Mt. Rainier, or the desert basins of the Grand Canyon, Sequoia’s standard 381-hp 5.7L V8—mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission—has the power you need to get exactly where you want to be.
This available system can turn mountains into molehills. Just turn the shift dial to engage the 4WD mode and let the Torsen® limited-slip center differential go to work. The differential can be locked to get maximum traction on slippery or uneven surfaces.
If your adventure takes you to the middle of nowhere, it’s reassuring to know you can rely on Sequoia’s strength and reliability. Forged on a fully boxed frame for durability, Sequoia is up to the challenge. Regardless of what the challenge is.
Sequoia’s advanced Automatic Limited-Slip Differential (Auto LSD) uses the brakes to help reduce wheel spin, giving you enhanced traction performance on unpredictable road surfaces like sand or mud.
Even with adjusted side mirrors, cars driving to the side and rear of you sometimes enter "blind spot" areas outside your view. The Platinum’s Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) system uses radar to scan these blind spots, helping to give you the confidence of knowing when other vehicles are in them.
Every Sequoia comes standard with our Star Safety System™, including Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and Smart Stop Technology® (SST).
Our advanced Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) comes standard on every Sequoia. Designed to monitor the pressure at all times, it alerts the driver when a tire or tires become critically underinflated.
Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) are on whenever the Sequoia is, so you’re more visible to oncoming traffic during daylight.
Toyota is devoted to safety and dependability, and proper vehicle maintenance is important to both. That's why we include a no cost maintenance plan with the purchase or lease of every new Sequoia for 2 years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first. 24-hour roadside assistance is also included for 2 years, regardless of mileage.
An Advanced Airbag System helps protect you and your family with driver and front passenger dual stage airbags, driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags, a driver knee airbag, a front passenger seat-cushion airbag and Roll-sensing Side Curtain Airbags (RSCA) for all rows.
