The Sequoia is Toyota’s largest sport-utility vehicle, able to carry as many as eight passengers and 18.9 cubic feet of their duffel bags or up to a minivan-like 120.1 cubic feet of cargo space with the second- and third-row seats folded down. It’s also a workhorse with V8 power under the hood and the ability to tow trailers up to 7,400 pounds. And a fun fact for Scrabble players: The Sequoia is the only vehicle name that uses every vowel in the English alphabet.
Now into its 11th year since its last full redesign, the 2018 version of the second-generation Sequoia received a refreshed front appearance with a new grille and front bumpers plus LED headlamps, daytime running lamps and fog lamps. It’s available in base SR5, uplevel Limited, and range-topping Platinum models, and, for 2018, a new, more-aggressive-looking TRD Sport trim, which can be identified by its black-trimmed grille surround, mirror housings, and black 20-inch alloy wheels. Base prices range from $48,600 to $64,310.
