2022 Toyota Sequoia Platinum Redesign – The 2022 Toyota Sequoia has been loaded with modern technology, but the great SUV remains outdated compared to contemporary competitors. Still, families who want three-row transport and the reliable reputation that Toyota has built will take note. Similarly, each Sequoia has standard driver-auxiliary features such as automatic emergency brake and blind-spot monitoring. While its cabin has an abundance of hard plastic and outdated switchgear, its durable material and spacious third drive should counteract some of those complaints. Toyota also makes the 2022 Sequoia more desirable with standard Apple CarPlay and Android auto capability. Although a far from the best sights and SUVs, Toyota has held the Sequoia relevant with more frequent improvements.
The 2022 Sequoia series receives multiple updates. The biggest addition is the new off-road-ready TRD Pro model which is equipped with an increased suspension and other add-ons to conquer unruly roads and routes. Also on other Toyota products such as the Tacoma pickup truck and the 4Runner SUV, the TRD-voted version is much more than just a look package. The rest of the Sequoia series also receives long-awaited infotainment features, including standard Apple CarPlay and Android auto capability as well as a mobile Hotspot.
SR5: $51 230
TROMBID Sport: $53 945
Limited: $60 240
TRD Pro: $65 355
Platinum: $67 270
The Toyota Sequoia’s base price is $51 230, which is higher than competitors such as the Nissan Armada and the Chevy tahow. However, the Sequoia is loaded with driver help that includes customizable Cruise control, automatic emergency brake, and more. To maximize value to its many more desirable competitors, we will recommend the base SR5 trim. This model seats eight with a standard second row bank seat instead of the seven-seater Sequoias with captain’s chairs. Adding four-wheel drive costs $3215 but offers four-season security for those who need it. The premium package is the only important option on the SR5; However, its content (leather interior, heated front seats, Premium sound system, and more) not confirmed its $4325 price tag.
The Sequoia is only available with a 381-HP V-8 engine which floats on a six-speed automatic transfer and either behind or Vierwiellyn. The Sequoia we tested was fairly fast around the town, with a responsive gas decreasing and a smooth shifting transfer. It also has plenty of power for the motorway fusion or passes. Although the Sequoia is built on a pickup truck chassis, it still has a rear suspension with a modern design. While it has made us sufficiently isolated from the hardest buds, too many shakes and rattles enter the cabin when driven on coarse surfaces. None of its competitors are especially fun to drive, but they are either better handled or feel more composite. The Toyota’s light sending was easy to control in tight spaces and during the highway sailing, but the non-existent feedback further reduced its handling. The Sequoia’s brake peval was easy to modulate and first after the initial input. The TRD Pro model has a legitimate off-road equipment that includes an increased suspension, beefy shock absorbers, and exclusive wheels with meatier tapes.
The Sequoia is a heavy drink – of gasoline, it is. While many of his full-size classmates also have an insatiable thirst for fossil fuels, the Toyota has the worst EPA estimates and real world fuel economy. The Sequoia we tested earned 16 mpg on our highway fuel-economy test route, 1 mpg shy of its government rating. That number is at least 2 mpg less than every other competitor we evaluated.
The cheap-looking plastic and courageous control continue to date of the Sequoia’s cockpit. The larger-is-better nodes and eye-catching buttons are undeniable functionally, though. Still, this is particularly striking about the modern features that are available on most competitors. This omissions includes a heated steering wheel, head-UP display, and massage front seats. People who want a durable interior without an redundant options will appreciate the Sequoia. Most will no different. Thankfully, passenger space is plentiful, with comfy legroom in all three rows. Similarly, accept the third row adult frames without penalty. The Sequoia has kept a healthy amount of wearing luggage behind the third row and hung with the hindmost seats. This is noteworthy because the Toyota did not have an extended version for a larger load capacity than some competitors like the GMC Yukon XL and the Ford expedition Max. It also has enough interior cubby storage to sell the moon as a mobile backyard.
The 2022 Sequoia series ships with a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Toyota finally brings Apple CarPlay and Android auto capability to the table after a long breather and make both smartphone-friendly features standard. The Sequoia also has a Wi-Fi Hotspot, which requires an entry for the initial trial period. A rear seat entertainment system is also available with an upgraded JVL Audio system.
This generation Sequoia has not been tested fully crash. But Toyota things each model with a bunch of standard safety and driver-help technology. While its competitors are available with the same functions, they almost all cost extra. It can help to justify the Toyota’s questionable sticker price, but only for those who want to help the driver in the first place.
