Redesigned 2023 Toyota Sequoia will start at $59,795 with goal of tripling sales
The result is 437 hp and 583 pound-feet of torque, which the automaker says is capable of towing as much as 9,520 pounds. Notably, Toyota increased the maximum towing capacity rating by about 500 pounds since the Sequoia was revealed, with the new rating now up 26 percent over that of the previous-generation model.
Fuel economy is expected to be similar to the two-wheel-drive hybrid Tundra’s 20 city/24 highway/22 combined mpg.
The 2023 Sequoia, assembled alongside the Tundra in San Antonio, is scheduled to arrive at U.S. dealerships this summer. It will be available in five trim levels — SR5, Limited, Platinum, TRD Pro and Capstone — and ride on 18-, 20- or 22-inch wheels, depending on the trim level.
It will come standard with the automaker’s new touch screen, voice-based infotainment system and sliding third-row seats and cargo shelf system that allows drivers to reconfigure the rear for either maximum cargo or passenger comfort. Also standard on all trims is Toyota Safety Sense 2.5, a suite of driver-assistance and safety technology.
