Toyota Sequoia Review: Big, Practical, And Simple

For this year, revisions included an update on the center console as well as the dashboard design. This has brought lots of driver assistance features and a host of other tech-related upgrades.

The dashboard is can be faintly dismissed as plainly functional without much fanfare. All models are offered a 6.1-inch touchscreen. This is considerably smaller than most rival displays.

A major undoing of the Sequoia is that features including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto as well as a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, are missing yet most rivals today would rather make a car that misses one wheel and not these features. Perhaps that’s why the Sequoia compensates for this loss with a rear-seat entertainment system, which, again, is only available on some trims.

The Sequoia’s only available drivetrain is the 381-hp V-8 engine that is fixed to a six-speed automatic transmission. You can choose either the rear- or four-wheel drive. This is a practicality oriented car as opposed to flashy, opulent offerings.
