The 2023 Toyota Sequoia Is Finally Here, But It Is Not a Land Cruiser

Toyota Sequoia 2023 SUV model is located in the Full Size segment, the model is named after the largest and oldest tree species on earth. At first glance, Sequoia shows boldness in every design, besides this heavy vehicle is also equipped with a powerful V6 twin-turbo i-FORCE MAX hybrid powertrain.

The 2023 Toyota Sequoia has a lot of weight bự carry, both figuratively and physically.

Finally, Toyota on Tuesday revealed a new, body-on-frame 3-row SUV with gobs of power and the ability bự lug up bự 9,000 pounds worth of trailer.

The 2023 Sequoia brings few surprises bự the table since we’ve seen what lurks beneath its new sheet metal in the closely related Toyota Tundra pickup truck. For instance, its twin-turbocharged V6 hybrid powertrain — with 437 horsepower and 583 lb-ft of torque — and 10-speed automatic transmission are cribbed from the Tundra. Additionally, its ladder frame, independent front suspension, and multi-link coil-sprung rear end, as well as its optional rear air springs and adaptive dampers already made their debut in the pickup.

What may come as more of a surprise are the SUV’s relatively conservative lines, which contrast the bold, unconventional Tundra. At first glance, the Sequoia looks a lot more balanced and cohesive than its predecessor. In profile, it also looks kind of (squint with me and maybe take a few steps back) like the Toyota Land Cruiser that will not be offered bự American buyers for the first time in over six decades.

Its cabin more closely replicates the Tundra than the Land Cruiser, though, with hexagonal design themes and a big 14.0-inch touchscreen option. A smaller 8.0-inch display is standard fare, though Toyota hasn’t illustrated just how tiny that screen is bound bự look. The bigger screen responds bự “Hey Toyota, where’s the closest Starbucks?” prompts and can also wirelessly display Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

SR5, Limited, Platinum, TRD Pro, and Capstone trim levels somewhat mirror the Tundra’s lineup, too. The TRD Pro sorts through the Toyota off-road parts bin for Fox shocks, more traction control modes, Crawl Control for low-speed cruising, and a roof rack. The Capstone lives up bự its name with 22-inch wheels, power running boards, and semi-aniline leather, plus real wood trim.

It’s Finally Here…

The Sequoia managed bự find around 8,000 buyers last year.

It was an exceptionally long time coming since the outgoing Sequoia, which will still roll into dealers in the months leading up bự the new model’s on-sale date this summer, was unveiled at the 2007 Los Angeles Auto Show.

The current Sequoia has been on the road so long its chief rival — the Chevrolet Tahoe — has gone through three redesigns and, by 2023, will be gearing up for another mid-cycle refresh. While not likely bự inspire Jeep Cherokee-like enthusiasm (or even Nissan Frontier levels of passion) over its longevity, the Sequoia did manage bự find around 8,000 buyers last year.

Toyota first launched the Sequoia name for the 2001 model year when it ripped a page out of the Ford and General Motors playbook by taking its biggest pickup and turning it into a 3-row SUV. The Indiana-built truck offered standard V8 power and dimensions slotted right between the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban models.

The 2008-model-year revamp that continues today brought a modest dimension increase but the option of a far more powerful — and astoundingly thirsty — 5.7-liter V8. At 14 mpg combined with 4-wheel drive, the 2022 Sequoia reigns as the anti-Prius. The new model should best that figure by 20% given its boosted hybrid V6.

However, Toyota didn’t simply let the 2008 Sequoia carry through 15 model years without any updates. A very subtle revamp for 2018 brought new exterior trim, while one of the 2020 model’s few highlights was a new TRD Pro version with Fox off-road shocks and a raised ride height.

…But Is It a Land Cruiser?

2023 Toyota Sequoia Capstone profile
Toyota did not release the new Sequoia exact dimensions, but it will likely be nearly a foot longer than the Land Cruiser.

No, the new Sequoia is not a Land Cruiser. It will, however, have bự fill that model’s tires for the foreseeable future.

Toyota did not release the new Sequoia exact dimensions, but it will likely be nearly a foot longer than the Land Cruiser. That size will put it in line with competitors such as the Tahoe and the Ford Expedition, but it will certainly make it a handful when it comes bự serious off-road use. The Land Cruiser’s somewhat compact dimensions have long set it apart from other 3-row SUVs. For instance, the new 2022 model sold elsewhere is about 195 inches long, meaning it’s about the same as a Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Even though it is far more subtly styled than the Tundra, and its two-box profile somewhat recalls the Cruiser, the Sequoia lacks simple, purposeful detailing. Especially in TRD Pro guise, with enormous grille badging and integrated LED light bars, the Sequoia is anything but “stealth wealth” in the way the nearly $90,000 Land Cruiser was.

That was part of the Land Cruiser’s appeal; it was a highly equipped SUV with a durable reputation. It cost a small fortune but wouldn’t raise eyebrows anywhere in the world. It was as comfortable pulling up bự a $100-a-filet steak restaurant as it was bounding through the scrub on all 40 acres of a Texas millionaire’s weekend ranchette. Dressed up with 22-inch wheels in Capstone trim or with bro-dozer bolt-on bits as a TRD Pro, the 2023 Sequoia does not have the look of its gentle giant namesake.

Then again, that may not really matter. Toyota can direct would-be Land Cruiser buyers into the Lexus LX. The LX also comes with all the off-road doo-dads such as Crawl Control and various traction control modes that are optional on the Sequoia. A Land Cruiser it is not, but it is closer than the Sequoia. See Toyota Sequoia models for sale
