The all-new 2008 Toyota Sequoia boasts plenty of space, power, and amenities for everyone. It comes in three different trim levels--SR5, Limited, and Platinum--and each is available in either rear- or four-wheel drive. A 276-horsepower 4.7L V8 with 314 lb-ft of torque is standard in the SR5 and mated to a five-speed automatic transmission, while the 381-horsepower 5.7L V8 is optional in that model and standard in both the Limited and Platinum. It produces a hefty 401 lb-ft of torque and puts its power through a six-speed automatic. Four-wheel-drive models feature a two-speed transfer case with a lockable Torsen limited-slip differential.
The Sequoia SR5 comes with plenty of standard equipment, including a CD stereo with an auxiliary jack, a tilt and telescopic steering wheel, a 60/40 folding third-row seat, tri-zone automatic climate control, 18-inch alloy wheels, and power windows, locks, and mirrors.
Limited models add a leather-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob, as well as leather-trimmed, heated front seats with power driver adjustability, Optitron gauges, a 14-speaker JBL six-disc stereo with Bluetooth capability, running boards, a roof rack, and an electrochromic rearview mirror.
Step up to the top-line Platinum, and you'll find 20-inch alloy wheels, a power moonroof, DVD navigation with a backup camera, power rear door, special leather seating with heated second-row seats, and load-leveling suspension.
Several options and packages are available across the Sequoia range. Most of the standard equipment from the Platinum is optional on the lower trims. Other available equipment includes fog lamps, laser cruise control, and daytime running lights. A Tow Package includes a tow hitch receiver, trailer brake controller wiring, a 4.30 rear axle ratio, a wiring harness, and a supplemental transmission cooler.
Sequoias feature up to 120 cubic feet of cargo room with second- and third-row seats folded flat, and when equipped with the Tow Package, the SUV is capable of towing 10,000 pounds.
Toyota's monstrous Sequoia SUV gets more aggressive for the 2018 model year with the addition of a new TRD Sport model. The new trim level makes its world debut at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, and pumps a little bit of life into this generation model that's been around since 2008.https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/chicago-auto-show/
Available in 4x2 and 4x4 configurations, the Sequoia TRD Sport raises its handling prowess with an upgraded suspension featuring Bilstein shock absorbers and TRD antiroll bars riding on 20-inch black aluminum wheels.
The blacked-out visual theme continues with black mirror caps, exterior badges and smoked taillight lenses. To further distinguish the TRD Sport from other Sequoia versions, an exclusive grille and bumper are installed.
