    Bland, gas-guzzling…

    Looks like a very old gen Ford Explorer or Excursion.

    $46L starting price means ACTUAL $56K+ with any Toyota “options”, standard on many other vehicles in the segment.

    Oh, and it is GREY on GREY………………………….

    It’s basically the least scary looking new SUV you can buy. Which might be a good thing!

    Boring and useless….Whats the point of this old rhino? Toyota will be better off selling LandCruiser in different versions than this. I dont get the point of sequoia in their lineup…

    • LeftLanePrius

      Well, the LandCruiser does start at $85k.

      • Liam

        Yeah that’s why I said different versions of LandCruiser. The one on sale in the US is top of the line. They can offer cheaper ones with lesser bells and whistles but more practicality than the freaking Sequoia.Also they sell the V8 version, V6 of LandCruiser is cheaper and comes with all the options at a lower price which makes a great family car.

    this thing is really a living Dinosaur!!!! come on Toyota!!

  • Michael_66589

    It was great SUV couple years ago, it should based on new Toyota Tundra right now. I really don’t now, why Toyota doesn’t want to make some profit in full size SUV market. Of course market for this kind of vehicles collapsed in 2009, but now its more stable. New model Tundra based should be introduced as soon as possible.

    • Nathan Daniel Stroud

      The current Sequoia is based on the current Tundra. The only difference is that the Tundra has been facelifted and the Sequoia hasn’t. This makes sense because the Sequoia is in a niche market, while the Tundra is in a much more competitive market where it’s important for your product to look shiny and new.

      • Michael_66589

        GM sells plenty full size SUVs, so its not to the end niche market. If Sequoia was based on refreshed Tundra, sales will definitely grow.

  • U8INIT

    Who would pick this over a Tahoe…

  • Nathan Daniel Stroud

    I’m having flashbacks to 2008.

  • no25

    I have never felt bad for a car before…Toyota seriously needs to do something with this thing – either redesign it or kill it. 9 years of the same design is way too much. The Dodge Dart came and left during the Sequoia’s second generation lifetime I mean come on
