2024 Toyota Sequoia Hybrid captivates in Blueprint body color

The 2024 Toyota Sequoia Hybrid is the Japanese automaker’s mightiest SUV in the U.S, engineered for big families who like extreme adventures. Built locally in San Antonio, Texas, it’s America’s alternative to the global Toyota Land Cruiser 300. Recently, I saw a 2024 Toyota Sequoia Hybrid in the feature-loaded Platinum grade, and it looked absolutely stunning, helped largely by the Blueprint paint.


The 2024 Toyota Sequoia Hybrid looks like an authentic SUV, thanks to its classic shape and design cues like the assertive radiator grille, high and muscular hood, T-shaped headlights, and beefy wheel arches. When I saw the sequential turn indicators of the Platinum grade’s headlights, they made me feel as if I was looking at a luxury SUV. I wouldn’t say the same about the 20-inch wheels, though.


When I sat in the 2024 Toyota Sequoia Hybrid, I liked how the interior was simple and focused more on utility than style, but at the same time, not lacking modern comfort creatures. The truck-like hefty dash and center console reminded me I was sitting in a big body-on-frame SUV.

The Platinum grade comes with 10-way power-adjustable driver’s and front passenger seats with 4-way power-adjustable lumbar support, manually reclinable captain’s chairs in the second row, and 60/40 split third-row seat with a power reclining function. 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, 14-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and wireless Android Auto, three-zone automatic climate control system, 360-degree camera system, etc. are some of the other main features included in the Platinum grade.


Powering the 2024 Toyota Sequoia Hybrid is the i-Force Max hybrid powertrain that combines a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine with an electric motor. A 10-speed automatic transmission is standard, while a part-time 4WD system is available. The hybrid powertrain produces 437 hp and 583 lb.-ft. and returns an EPA-est. combined fuel economy of 22 MPG (2WD)/20 MPG (4WD). This Blueprint-colored unit has been specified with the part-time 4WD system.


The 2024 Toyota Sequoia Hybrid’s prices range from USD 61,275 (excl. USD 1,850 DPH fee) to USD 78,265 (excl. USD 1,850 DPH fee). In the Platinum grade specifically, it retails at USD 73,865 (excl. USD 1,850 DPH fee).
