Overview

There aren’t too many bona fide SUVs out there, meaning those that meet the true definition of a sport-utility vehicle by being built on a truck platform with body-on-frame construction and four-wheel drive rather than all-wheel drive. It’s only natural that Toyota – a manufacturer known for rugged models like the 4Runner and Tundra – offers such a vehicle. The Sequoia fits the needs of buyers looking for a capable off-roader that can also tow an exceptional amount and fit up to eight passengers. But it goes beyond that by adding high comfort and a slew of standard and available amenities. It’s filled that niche for more than two decades now, as it returns for model year 2022 to be whatever its buyer wants it for, from a high-capacity road-trip vessel to a hardy trail tackler for serious weekend adventures.

Trims and Capabilities

The six Sequoia trim levels are SR5, TRD Sport, Limited, Nightshade Special Edition, Platinum, and TRD Pro. Their 5.7-liter V8 engine puts out 381 hp and 401 lb.-ft. of torque and works with a six-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive comes standard on all but the 4WD-only TRD Pro; 4WD is available on all of the other trims. A 4WD Sequoia has a maximum towing capacity of 7,100 lb., while RWD versions increase their max a tad to 7,400 lb.

Trims and Standard Equipment

The SR5 is a nicely equipped base trim that has plenty of conveniences, from LED fog lights and a roof rack to amenities that make winter drives safer and more comfortable: heated exterior mirrors and a de-icer for the windshield wipers. It also gets standard LED headlights, rear privacy glass, a moonroof, running boards, skid plates for the engine and transfer case (the transfer case skid plate is only included on 4WD Sequoias), keyless entry and ignition, a power driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, five 12V outlets, one data USB port, two charge ports, and a second-row 40/20/40-split bench seat that reclines and folds away with one-touch access to the third-row. Buyers can choose to order the Premium Package for leather seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink, a power front passenger’s seat, and a power-reclining third-row seat that folds flat to make room for cargo.

The TRD Sport has a different look with the addition of black exterior accents. It’s also eager for trail driving with its Bilstein shocks and a performance-tuned anti-sway bar. The second-row bench goes away in favor of a pair of captain’s chairs, dropping the passenger maximum to seven. The aforementioned Premium Package remains optional. The Limited drops the black exterior accents and TRD-specific shocks and sway bar and returns the second-row bench – although the captain’s chairs can be swapped back. The Limited is loaded up with the contents of the Premium Package plus a power liftgate, power-folding and auto-dimming exterior mirrors with turn-signal indicators, second- and third-row sunshades (retractable), and a net for the cargo area. Position memory for the driver’s seat and outside mirrors and a rear-seat entertainment system are both optional. The Nightshade Special Edition is equipped much like the Limited, but the blacked-out exterior detail and second-row captain’s chairs comes back.

The Platinum receives heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row captain’s chairs, a rear entertainment system, an adaptive suspension, exterior mirrors with position memory and a feature that automatically tilts them downward when the vehicle is backing up, a power thigh extender for the driver, a power tilt/telescopic steering column, and a 120V AC power outlet (which replaces one of the 12V outlets mentioned previously). The TRD Pro is built with serious off-roading in mind. It drops some of the features in the Limited (the 120V outlet, heated/ventilated front seats, heated captain’s chairs, power steering column, and sunshades) but adds FOX shocks, a Torsen limited-slip differential, front skid plates, independent front and rear suspensions, BBS-forged wheels, extra-tough LED fog lights by Rigid Industries, and all-weather floor mats a trim-specific roof rack, and red interior contrast stitching.

Active Safety Technologies

Toyota Safety Sense, a complete suite of advanced driver-assist technologies, comes standard. It includes adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection, and lane departure alert. Some other technologies are optional: blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, front and rear parking sensors, and trailer sway control.

Connectivity and Entertainment

The base infotainment system (found in the SR5 and TRD Sport) has a 7-inch touchscreen and is set up well with wireless smartphone integration (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), Bluetooth for hands-free phone and audio streaming, SiriusXM satellite radio, voice recognition, and a sound system with eight speakers. Navigation and enhanced voice recognition are available for those two lowest trims, but those features come standard in the Limited and Nightshade Special Edition, which also add four speakers to their standard sound system (they’re eligible for the available JBL audio system with 14 speakers and a subwoofer. The Platinum and TRD Pro get the JBL system as a standard feature.
