2020 Toyota Sequoia
The current generation of this full-size SUV rides for years and it looks like it will continue for a few more. Latest reports suggest that we won’t see a redesign in the next couple of years. So, the 2020 Toyota Sequoia is about to come with pretty familiar design characteristics.
In practice, this would mean a lot of good, but also a fine amount of drawbacks, such as poor fuel economy, outdated infotainment system etc. Considering that we won’t see any important change in the next year, the 2020 Toyota Sequoia should come sometime late in the year.

Just like its siblings Land Cruiser and Tundra pickup truck, the current-generation of Sequoia has been around for a pretty long time. It dates from more than a decade ago, so it’s no wonder it’s outdated in some aspects. Still, we saw a couple of updates so far, so it looks quite attractive, despite the age.
The most recent update happened two years ago. For that occasion, it came with new LED headlights, as well as with several more tweaks to the front end. Still, the overall shape has remained pretty much the same. So, the 2020 Toyota Sequoia will continue in the same way, with familiar styling and overall design characteristics.
This is the aspect where the 2020 Toyota Sequoia will definitely show its age. The dashboard layout is pretty truckish and it is mostly made of hard plastics, which seems quite disappointing for today’s industry standards. On the other side, the cabin is very spacious and super-functional. You can count on three very spacious rows of seats, while the cargo area is pretty generous as well.
You can count on 19 cubic feet behind the third row, while the overall capacity goes all away up to pretty impressive 120 cubic feet. Another strong point of this SUV is a very long list of standard and available safety features.
Even the most basic models are equipped with things like a rearview camera, blind spot monitoring, lane change assists, front and rear parking sensors, rear cross traffic alert, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane keeps assist etc. Sounds pretty impressive.

Under the hood, the Sequoia is pretty much the same as its luxurious sibling, Land Cruiser. You can count on a powerful 5.7-liter V8 engine, which delivers around 380 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. Such an amount of power guarantees a pretty smooth ride and strong acceleration ratings. Towing capacity is also quite good, around 7.500 pounds. On the other side, a big complaint goes to a poor fuel economy, which goes around 13 mpg in the city and 17 mpg on the highway.
