CHANGES FOR 2014:
– No changes.
While the Tundra, on which the Sequoia is based, received a fairly extensive refresh for 2014, the Sequoia team must not have gotten the memo. Toyota’s full-size SUV continues on with its aging face with no changes versus 2013. But, chances are the Sequoia will receive a new face in 2015 more in-line with its truck sibling.
The Sequoia uses a 5.7L V8 mated to a six-speed automatic. All models use a part-time four-wheel drive system and feature three rows of seats. Trims are SR5, Limited, and Platinum.
