The Toyota Sequoia: Make a StatementBlog May 23rd, 2019
It’s built to haul but ready to play. It’s the 2019 Toyota Sequoia – and whether you’re transporting a crew to the jobsite, friends and sports gear to the arena, or hauling a trailer full of fun to the cottage, Toyota’s full-size SUV can do it in comfort, style, and safety. Available in four configurations, all Sequoia models are include a towing package, impressive technology features and an extensive set of safety systems, such as Toyota Safety Sense P.
“While many manufacturers have abandoned the full-size, body-on-frame SUV market, we continue to build the Sequoia for those Canadians who demand its unbeatable combination of capability and comfort,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. “With its expansive cabin, authentic performance and impressive safety, the Sequoia is ready to take on everything that life throws at you, and do so with style and comfort built in.”
The 2019 Sequoia commands attention, curbside. This full-size SUV features bold styling, with a prominent grille and muscular profile. And with 9.5 inches (241 mm) of ground clearance, Sequoia is ready to ride above almost any terrain. Exterior features of note include LED headlamps with washers, LED daytime running lights and fog lamps, a power moon roof, roof rails and running boards.
Inside, the cabin is spacious and comfortable, with plenty of glass to let in the light. There’s room for seven or eight adults (depending on model), while the fold-down rear seats – including power folding 60/40 split third row seats on all models – open up 120 cubic feet of cargo space behind the front row. The driver will appreciate Sequoia’s 6.1” Display Audio systems with Bluetooth® connectivity, integrated Sirius XM satellite radio and steering wheel-mounted controls, three-zone independent automatic climate control, power windows including the tailgate window, plenty of in-cabin storage, and more.
Under the hood, Sequoia delivers the power and performance for every challenge. This full-size SUV’s 5.7L i-FORCE V8 delivers 381 peak horsepower and up to 401 lb-ft of torque.
This engine pairs with a six-speed automatic super electronically controlled transmission with sequential shift mode for smooth and precise shifts. The transmission transfers power via an on-demand 4WD system. This system features centre differential lock, auto limited slip rear differential, automatic disconnecting differential and two-speed transfer case. In addition, every Sequoia comes with a trailer sway control system plus Toyota’s Tow Package.
Sequoia is the full-size SUV with full-size safety, too. Every Sequoia is comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense P. This bundle of active safety technologies – including the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control – enhances driver capabilities to mitigate collisions, stay in lane, and see at night. Other safety technologies standard on all Sequoia models include the Toyota Star Safety System, eight airbags, the Toyota Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert systems, a back-up camera, a direct tire pressure monitoring system, an antitheft system, and more.
