Continue reading below as our team at James Toyota has compiled the key highlights and features of the brand new 2023 Toyota Sequoia.
Bold Exterior Styling
The newly redesigned 2023 Sequoia receives a modern exterior design that accentuates its rugged, and utilitarian nature. This traditional body-on-frame SUV adopts exterior design traits such as muscular body lines along the wheel wells, a striking LED headlight design and an imposing front grille from its pickup truck sibling, the Toyota Tundra. Further highlighting the new Sequoia’s bold exterior design is the availability of nine distinctive paint options, including an outdoor-inspired Army Green and a trendy Lunar Rock paint option.
New Turbocharged Six-Cylinder Engine
Exclusively powered by an all-new 3.5L twin turbocharged V6 engine with Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive™ and mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, the 2023 Toyota Sequoia is more powerful and more fuel efficient than its outgoing predecessor. Generating 427 horsepower and 583 lb-ft of torque, the Sequoia’s new twin-turbo engine delivers V8 power with V6 fuel efficiency, returning a very respectable 12.6 L/100km in the city and 10.5 L/100km on the highway.
A true SUV with its body-on-frame underpinnings, the 2023 Sequoia doesn’t disappoint when it comes to capability and performance. With a maximum towing capacity of up to 4,080 kg (9,000 lbs), alongside its integrated Trailer Brake Controller (TBC), the Sequoia has what it takes to bring along far more than the mere essentials. With its standard part-time four-wheel drive, and available features such as an automatic limited slip differential (LSD) for added traction, downhill assist control for tricky throttle maneuvers, and its Multi-Terrain Select and Crawl Control technologies, the 2023 Sequoia can take you on adventures further than you’ve ever imagined.
Technology-laden Interior Cabin
As a newly redesigned vehicle, the 2023 Sequoia comes equipped with modern vehicle technologies that drivers have come to expect on new vehicles. Standard on all 2023 Sequoia models is wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, allowing drivers to stay connected while on the road. A full digital gauge cluster, 20.3 cm (8-inch) Toyota Multimedia full-colour centre touchscreen display and Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.5, the brand’s latest iteration of its suite of active and passive safety and driver assistance technologies, are also standard equipment on all Sequoia models.
New Capstone Flagship Model
New for the 2023 model year, the Toyota Sequoia receives a new flagship trim level dubbed the Sequoia Capstone. This range topping model is crafted using genuine, high-quality materials, filled with all of the latest vehicle safety and connectivity technologies, and comes equipped with all of the luxury amenities available on the Sequoia. Highlighted by a large 35.6 cm (14-inch) Toyota Multimedia full-colour centre touchscreen display, a 14-speaker JBL Premium Audio System, real interior Walnut wood trim and Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.5, the 2023 Sequoia Capstone is a plush vehicle to drive and be driven in.
