Sequoia is one of the SUVs with the biggest tradition in the United States. The upcoming 2022 Toyota Sequoia is about one year away and a new model will introduce a couple of upgrades. Recently, we saw the first rendering images. However, we don’t know the exact upgrades for 2022MY.
Sequoia is present since 2000 and it is one of the most-awarded SUVs to this date. New model will gain a couple of important updates. The styling looks fresh and the interior provides great comfort. Overall, Sequoia is a modern SUV that also provides more than enough power.
2022 Sequoia Redesign
For a start, the new 2022 Toyota Sequoia will look bolder and more modern than the outgoing model. However, the exterior won’t suffer dramatic changes. Instead, the Japanese manufacturer will opt for mid-cycle refreshments. A rigid body-on-frame structure remains, which means new Sequoia won’t arrive with dimensional changes.
As for the styling, Sequoia SUV will get a revised front fascia. That includes a more attractive grille design with more chrome accents. New headlights and taillights are also in the works, and the side profile will feature sharper bodylines. Overall, this model will gain more character but its unique appearance remains.
On the inside, the new 2022 Toyota Sequoia will offer updates in all trim levels. There will be five different trims which include SR5, TRD Sport, Limited, TRD Pro, and Platinum variants. The list of interior updates is still a complete mystery. However, the cabin is the highlight of this SUV so the 2022MY will surely offer amazing interior design. Sequoia is a three-row SUV with a room for seven persons. The base trim level will deliver a longer list of standard equipment.
For a start, a 6.1-inch touchscreen is offered as standard. Moreover, you will get Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, Apple CarPlay and tri-zone climate control. Features such as a moonroof, leather upholstery, and larger display are all optional. Finally, we hope to see an updated infotainment system and the latest driver-assistance aids as well.
The all-new 2022 Toyota Sequoia is a large SUV so the manufacturer always looks to offer potent engines. The next Sequoia will most likely offer the same 5.7-liter V8 gasoline unit once again. This variant generates up to 380 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to that, Sequoia can tow up to 7,400 pounds but Ford Expedition is still a segment leader with 9300 pounds of towing capacity.
On the other hand, Sequoia could get a new transmission that will replace an aging six-speed automatic gearbox. All trims are equipped with a standard RWD, except the TRD Pro trim which offers a standard 4WD system.
2022 Toyota Sequoia Price and Release Date
The forthcoming 2022 Toyota Sequoia will hit the dealerships in the last quarter of 2021. The latest mid-cycle updates will slightly increase its price so the new SUV will cost around $51,000. If you want the TRD Pro trim level, you’ll have to pay at least $64,000. Sequoia will continue to rival models such as Chevy Tahoe, GMC Yukon, Ford Expedition, and Nissan Armada.
