The 8 passenger SUV is now available in 3 different trim levels. There have been a few exterior changes to the 2017 Toyota Sequoia including better headlights and the overall appearance is more aggressive.
While Toyota added bulk to the 2017 Sequoia, they didn’t add weight. By using aluminum they avoided increasing weight and reducing fuel efficiency. 19″ aluminum alloys are standard and the grille has smaller openings than before. The headlights and indicators are now using LED technology too.
If you want more space and luxury then the Sequoia cabin is exactly what you’re looking for. If you don’t need to seat 8 passengers, you can opt for 2 captain’s chairs in the second row. The 2nd and 3rd rows are split-folding and the 3rd rows seats are power reclining. There’s a spacious cargo area that can be increased by folding down the rear seats.
As standard, Toyota has offered a lot of safety features. Across the line, the Star Safety System, a driver and front passenger advanced airbag system, and 3-point seatbelts are all standard. In addition to this, a front energy-absorbing crumple zone and side-impact door beams are standard too. Trailer-sway control is also standard.
Tech in the 2017 Sequoia includes the Entune multimedia bundle and also a multi-information display as standard features. Rear seat Blu-ray players and a 9″ display are optional on the Limited trim and standard in the Platinum too.
The 5.7L i-FORCE V8 DOHC 32 valve engine is standard across the line and is paired with Dual Independent Variable Valve Timing and a 6-speed electronically automatic transmission. Rear wheel drive is standard on the base model and the EPA fuel efficiency rating is 13/17/15 MPG across the board.
