2020 Toyota Sequoia Platinum Release Date – Toyota’s biggest SUV now has a little more off-road capability. Announced today at the Chicago Motor Show, the Toyota Sequoia 2020 will join the Toyota vehicle line available in a TRD Pro version. The Toyota Sequoia TRD Pro 2020 is an inflated version of the standard three-row body-on-frame SUV, which obtains a variety of functional and aesthetic changes to differentiate it from the rest of the Sequoia line.
For the hardware, the Toyota Sequoia TRD Pro 2020, which comes standard with total traction, features Fox shocks and upgraded springs. The shock absorbers are larger than those of the standard Sequoia and should improve the comfort on the road and the ability out of the way at the same time. The appearance of the Sequoia TRD Pro will be highlighted by its unique 18-inch BBS alloy rims, a distinctive front grille, a sliding plate at the bottom of the front, a roof bar and running boards. It also has some unique exterior paint color options. An updated TRD Pro exhaust is available as an optional extra.
Inside, the Toyota Sequoia 2020 benefits from an improved information and entertainment system that Toyota will implement across the TRD Pro line (Sequoia, Tundra, Tacoma and 4Runner). The features of Apple display, Android Auto and Amazon Alexa are now included with the TRD Pro ornaments, with Sequoia sporting a 7-inch screen and Tundra, Tacoma and 4Runner getting 8-inch screens. Toyota also offers the Sequoia TRD Pro leather upholstered seats, TRD Pro rugs and red contrast seams throughout the cockpit.
Can you still carry things?
However, this update is not a redesign of Toyota Sequoia. Sequoia still gets its power from a 5.7-liter V8 that produces 381 horsepower. This means that the towing capacity for the Toyota Sequoia TRD Pro 2020 remains equal to 7.100 lbs. That’s not a leading class number for the three-row SUV, but it’s OK
When it comes to transporting people, the Toyota Sequoia 2020 has it covered. The TRD Pro equipment level features seven seats in a spacious interior and plenty of cargo space on the back. Behind the rear seats, the Sequoia offers 18.9 cubic feet of cargo space. But when they abate the seats, there are a total of 120 storage cubes. That’s on par with some of the larger vehicles on the road, like the Chevy suburban and the Ford expedition.
What standard equipment do you have?
Apart from all the TRD Pro bits mentioned above, Sequoia comes with a decent amount of standard equipment. Currently, Sequoia comes in four levels of equipment for Sequoia: SR5, TRD Sport, Limited and Ultimate. The Toyota Sequoia TRD Pro 2020 is likely to be located in the alignment over the TRD Sport and under the Limited.

The standard Sequoia equipment includes fog lights, a rear view camera, heated mirrors, ceiling rails, a wiper defroster, an electric rear window, Electrically adjustable front seats (driver eight Tracks and four passengers), a leather-lined steering wheel, and a 120 volt outlet in the rear loading area. All Sequoias Obtain the Safety Sense P system from Toyota, which includes front collision warning with automatic braking, lane maintenance assistance, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. Finally, while the standard stereo is an eight-speaker sound system, the TRD Pro setting will get the updated JBL sound system from 15 speakers and an integrated navigation system.
Price and release date
Since it is a 2020 model, the Sequoia TRD Pro will probably go on sale at the end of 2019. The price has not yet been announced, but current prices for Sequoia are a good starting point. The four-wheel-drive Sport TRD starts at $55.935 (including the destination), while a Sequoia Limited with four-wheel drive has an initial MSRP of $61.715. We hope that the TRD Pro will adjust between those adjustments in terms of price.
