Toyota Sequoia

Japanese carmaker Toyota will not be offered with a 4.6-liter V8 engine, but the SUV will receive power from a 5.7-liter V8 unit offered as standard. This is capable of developing 381 horsepower and 401 lb. ft. of torque. This output is being sent to the wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. The engine is equipped with dual independent Variable Valve Timing with intelligence. The model is available with two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive systems and a Torsen limited-slip differential. The Japanese specialists have also offered an Adaptive Variable Suspension which provides three damping settings. The back passenger of the 2013 Toyota Sequoia will receive the luxury of a Blu-Ray player. According to the carmaker, this new SUV is the first one in the world to offer high-definition rear-seat entertainment. 2013 marks the first full year of Toyota Entune availability.

The car is available in SR5, Limited and Platinum grades. The 4x4 2013 Sequoia models feature E85 Flex Fuel capability. Just like the rest of Toyota models, the 2013 Sequoia features the STAR Safety System which includes Vehicle Stability Control, an Anti-lock Braking System, Brake Assist, Smart Stop Technology and a lot more. It is also equipped with a dual stage advanced front air bag system, roll-sensing side, curtain airbags for all three seating row and front passenger knee airbags. The Sequoia SR5 seems to the best-equipped vehicle in its class thanks to all its elements offered as standard.

The carmaker provides a Sport Appearance Package that includes 7-passenger seating, 20-inch super chrome alloy wheels and different exterior colors available with the package. The wide rear door-opening angle provides easy passenger ingress / egress and child seat installation. The dashboard of the model features a finish similar to that in fine luxury cars. All three grades offer two new interior color choices.
