The second-gen Sequoia is nearly thirteen years old and has had a fruitful outing in the American market. An all-new 2023 Toyota Sequoia could arrive in showrooms in the second half of next year with a modern exterior and techy interior.
Design & Features
With the third-gen Tundra just around the corner, it’s obvious that the third-gen Toyota Sequoia would follow suit. Like the first- and second-gen models, the third-gen Sequoia should be in close ties with the upcoming Tundra. One way of looking at it is that the all-new Sequoia would serve as an indirect successor to the Land Cruiser 200 in the U.S., where Toyota has not planned for the LC 300.
The 2023 Toyota Sequoia could have some visual similarities with the 2022 Toyota Tundra at the front, but it may look more poised than the pickup overall. Expect a similar boxy appearance but sharper styling. Changes on the inside may include a more elegant dashboard, a car-like steering wheel, a free-standing touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and wireless Android Auto, a more intuitive driver information display, and a head-up display. The equipment list may include new comfort creatures also, such as massage seats and a heated steering wheel.
Underpinning the next-gen Sequoia would be the TNGA-F platform that debuted in the Land Cruiser 300. The Land Cruiser 300 and the new Tundra have a solid rear axle. However, like the second-gen Sequoia, the SUV should feature an independent rear suspension that helps achieve better handling and higher comfort.
As Toyota phases out V8s, expect some significant changes in the powertrain department. The company should offer a V6-based ‘iForce Max’ powertrain as an option in the 2023 Sequoia and a good selection of hybrid variants. Perhaps, the new Tundra’s full press announcement in the coming weeks contains more clues on this front.
The 2023 Toyota Sequoia’s prices could start somewhere around USD 52,000. The main rivals will be the Ford Expedition, which is getting a facelift for MY2022 in the coming months, and the Chevrolet Tahoe, which underwent a full model change for MY2021 in December 2019.
