Its cabin offers heated and ventilated front and second-row captain seats, standard 14-speaker JBL Premium Audio system, standard panoramic moonroof, standard Head-Up Display, and Qi wireless charging.

    TRD Pro is a great option for adventure-minded families whose weekly itinerary includes going off the beaten path. Focused on providing owners with premium off-roading experience, the TRD Pro variant gets a TRD roof rack, TRD-tuned Fox internal bypass shocks, a 1/4-inch aluminum TRD front skid plate, dual TRD Pro exhaust tips, and Pro-specific black 18-inch TRD alloy wheels.

    Inside, customers will find premium features such as standard second-row captain’s chairs, TRD heated steering wheel, and TRD accents on the seats and shift knob.

    capstone-variant

    Finally, the range-topping Capstone variant looks to become the most luxurious and capable Sequoia to date. The Capstone grade builds upon the Platinum variant and adds a suite of top-shelf features including a slew of exterior chrome accents and a set of 22-inch chrome wheels.

    The interior of the premium full-size SUV features power running boards, standard semi-aniline leather-trimmed seats, authentic American Walnut accentuated center console and passenger-side dash, and front-door acoustic glass.

    All 2023 Toyota Sequoia variants share the same i-Force Max 3.5-liter V6 hybrid powertrain mated to a 10-speed automatic gearbox. This setup allows the SUV to make 437 horses and around 790Nm of torque.

    “We are excited to write the next chapter in our truck family story with the all-new 2023 Sequoia. A three-row SUV must be excellent at many things to succeed in this highly competitive market, and we’ve got that with Sequoia. Our customers will have room for their whole crew, the technology they want to stay connected, and the heavy-duty power and efficiency they need for both on and off-road,” said Toyota Vehicle Marketing Team General Manager Joe Moses.
