The all-new redesigned 2023 Toyota Sequoia provides more of what drivers need when the road ahead calls for greater power, comfort, ease, technology, and even safety. Third-generation Sequoias are totally revamped and use Toyota’s groundbreaking i-FORCE MAX hybrid powertrain.
This advanced hybrid drivetrain is standard across the board and combines with Sequoia’s trademark mix of clever design and cutting-edge technologies to produce an experience that inspires trust. With such a wide variety of vehicles to choose from, any driver may find one that works for them on the road or off it.
The 2023 Toyota Sequoia will be available in five distinct trim levels: the SR5, Limited, Platinum, the adventure-oriented TRD Pro, and the brand-new Capstone, the most opulent Sequoia to date. Sequoia’s impressive outward presence is matched by its high levels of utility and capability, regardless of grade.
How Does the redesigned 2023 Toyota Sequoia Perform on the Road?
The newly redesigned Sequoia sets a new standard for capability. The groundbreaking twin-turbo hybrid design of the i-FORCE MAX gives the Sequoia an amazing 437 horsepower and 583 pound-feet of torque as standard equipment.
That means you won’t have to worry about running out of steam on your way through town or struggling to make progress in rugged terrain, and you’ll also benefit from increased fuel efficiency on longer journeys.
Because of its low fuel usage (11.7 litres per 100km, city/highway combined), the Sequoia is ideal for long trips through the country or across the wilderness. This optimal balance of power and efficiency is simple to control when paired with the Sequoia’s brand-new 10-speed automatic transmission.
Depending on the grade, the 2023 Toyota Sequoia can tow up to about 9,000 pounds. The power-extending tow mirrors and other optional features make this an even more remarkable feat of capabilities.
The Limited Trim comes with tools like the Electronically Controlled Rear Differential Lock, Multi-terrain Select, Crawl Control, and Downhill Assist Control to help you conquer challenging trails. While the Platinum trim includes a digital rearview mirror and the new Trailer Backup Guide with Straight Path Assist.
In case that wasn’t powerful enough, the Sequoia TRD Pro includes everything that’s wonderful about most of the other trims plus FOX shocks, hood vents, and a TRD skid plate.
Standard LED illumination, standard sequential turn signals on Platinum and higher, and brand-new 20-inch alloy wheels on Limited all contribute to the redesigned 2023 Toyota Sequoia’s commanding road presence.
Capstone’s 22-inch alloy wheels give a measure of visual assurance for those who seek to stand out, and the vehicle’s motorized running boards make it easy for everyone to do so.
TRD Pro, however, has a number of cosmetic modifications to match its capabilities, such as a heritage-inspired “TOYOTA” grille with LED light bar and marker lights, 18-inch wheels, and tow hooks. Matte black forged aluminum TRD Pro wheels, centre caps, and single exhaust with twin tips are all part of the TRD Pro package.
The exterior of every trim level of the 2023 Sequoia exudes self-assurance and capability, but the cabin is where the real narrative unfolds in terms of comfort and convenience.
The redesigned 2023 Toyota Sequoia’s interior is designed with the driver and passengers in mind, starting with the vehicle’s generous amount of passenger and cargo space.
With the Sequoia, you can fold the third row of seats flat with the touch of a button on Limited and higher trim levels, and you can slide the second and third rows forward by a further 6 inches to make more room for goods.
The innovative Adjustable Cargo Shelf System in the Sequoia allows the outstanding interior space to be arranged in a variety of ways, increasing its usefulness in a variety of contexts.
Once inside the cabin, the priority shifts to the passengers’ level of comfort. This is evident both visually and tactilely, thanks to the availability of heated and ventilated front and rear seats, as well as SofTex-trimmed seating as an option.
Finally, the seats in the Capstone trim of the Toyota Sequoia are upholstered in semi-aniline leather in a black-and-white colour scheme that is exclusive to this trim. The interior trim is made of real walnut.
The capabilities of the 2023 Toyota Sequoia’s cabin extend beyond mere convenience and comfort thanks to the inclusion of some clever and advanced electronics.
The Sequoia’s standard completely digital instrument panel is 12.3 inches in size, and it displays crucial information while allowing drivers to maintain their focus on the road.

And thanks to wireless Android Auto compatibility, it’s a breeze to maintain a connection with your Android device while on the go.
More than 165 channels, including ad-free music, sports, comedy, and more, are included in the normal three-month trial subscription to the SiriusXM Platinum Plan, and even more are accessible via the SXM mobile app.
As an added bonus, the TRD Pro and higher trim levels come standard with a JBL Premium Audio system so that you may enjoy these features to their fullest.
