2018 Toyota Sequoia
The 2018 Toyota Sequoia is Versatile and Reliable
The 2018 Toyota Sequoia is built for active families. It is a dual-purpose vehicle with Toyota’s build quality and reputation for reliability. The Sequoia is a body on frame SUV similar to a full-size truck. It has the solid suspension and rigidity that are characteristic of work vehicles, but the space and creature comforts that families need. It is made for those who need to tow trailers or haul furniture, but must also make room for their children.
There are three trim levels for the Sequoia: SR5, Limited, and Platinum. The basic version is nicely equipped with the features owners are looking for while the Platinum has the latest gadgets from Toyota’s lineup.
The Sequoia comes equipped with a 5.7 Liter V8 and six speed automatic transmission. It has a standard rear wheel drive configuration, but four-wheel drive can be included. The transfer case on the four-wheel drive train has a two-speed limited slip that changes the driving profile to match the road surface conditions.
This vehicle is designed to move people and things, and it accomplishes its goal. With a folding third-row seat, there is room for eight passengers. Interior cargo space can be arranged to hall as much as 120 cubic feet of material, and the towing capacity of the Sequoia is rated at 7400 lbs. It also has a 38 foot turning radius which is smaller than other vehicles in its class.
New for 2018
The 2018 models remain largely unchanged from the 2016 versions. Recent upgrades include improvements to the entertainment systems and the safety features. Currently the Sequoia comes with Toyota’s Entune infotainment system. This package features a touch screen display and digital controls that pair with the driver’s smart phone.
Toyota has also improved safety for all of the brand’s vehicles. New models come equipped with stability, traction, and braking controls. A backup camera is standard, and the Platinum trim level has the option to include adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking.
The Sequoia is a versatile hauler. It can comfortably transport people, luggage, and sporting equipment to any destination. For active families, it is the perfect all around vehicle.
