Though the 2014 Toyota Sequoia is relatively unchanged from the previous model year, the automaker’s latest version of the Entune infotainment system is now standard equipment...
The Toyota Sequoia is a full-size SUV with seating for up to eight, slotting below the Land Cruiser but above the 4Runner and Highlander in the automaker’s SUV lineup.
The 2014 Toyota Sequoia comes with a 5.7-liter V-8 that makes 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque, which can optionally power all four wheels, instead of the standard rear-wheel drive, through a six-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy is an EPA-estimated 13/17-18 city/highway, with a one mpg penalty on the highway for 4WD. Towing is a maximum of 7,400 pounds for all models.
The 2014 Toyota Sequoia has not been crash tested by the IIHS or the NHTSA, but received a four-star rollover rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars).
What We Think
In an Editor’s Notebook review of a 2011 Toyota Sequoia Limited we said, “The Sequoia cabin is old-school Big SUV, with a huge amount of cubic air space behind the front seats and a commodious third row that folds flat to create a huge cargo area. There’s nothing new or different here; this is just a well-engineered, big lunk of an SUV that can carry seven [or eight] passengers and tow about seven thousand pounds. It’s a formula that works for plenty of people.”
