2018 Toyota Sequoia: Still Standing Tall

2018 sequoia

The Toyota Sequoia is a good old-fashioned SUV. That means body-on-frame construction, available four-wheel drive, and plenty of space. It also means a vehicle that can do things and go places your average crossover can’t. And that’s just one reason to test drive one at Keyes Toyota. Here are a few more of our favorites.

Model details

  • Engine: 5.7-liter engine
  • Power: 381 horsepower, 401 lb-ft torque
  • Transmission: Six-speed automatic

The 2018 Toyota Sequoia looks a lot like the 2017 model it replaces. However, the few changes that arrive are major ones. The first is the addition of a new TRD Sport trim that joins the existing SR5, Limited, and Platinum trims. We’ll get to the second in the Special Features section below.

Whether you choose to option the four-wheel drive or stick to the stock rear-wheel drive, you’ll have plenty of power on tap. With 381 horsepower and 401 lb.-ft. of torque, the Toyota Sequoia handles demanding tasks and harsh environments with ease.

The size and power won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but how often do you see an SUV that can seat eight adults comfortably anymore? For that matter, the cargo volume is also impressive (18.9 to 120.1 cubic feet), and the towing capacity, which ranges between 7,000 and 7,400 pounds, is none too shabby either.

2018 Toyota Sequoia Special Features

The other change coming to the new Toyota Sequoia concerns safety. The SUV already came with ToyotaCare maintenance, roadside assistance, and the STAR Safety System. This year, that’s joined by Toyota Safety Sense (TSS), which includes blind spot warning, automatic emergency braking, rear cross-traffic alert, and more.

As in years past, the upper trims come with the best amenities. like the JBL audio and premium Entune infotainment system contained in the Limited trim. The best bang for the buck comes in the Platinum trim, which simply bundles practically everything as standard equipment. Your Toyota dealer serving Los Angeles will help you choose wisely.

  • Vehicle Stability Control
