2017 Toyota Sequoia Comes With $45,460 Starting Price

Billed as the perfect SUV for customers who want it all, the Toyota Sequoia has just been updated for the 2017 MY. Starting at $45,460, it comes in three grades: SR5, Limited and Platinum.

The SR5’s standard equipment list includes tri-zone climate control, power tilt-slide moonroof, 8-way power driver’s seat, multi-function tilt/telescoping steering wheel, towing package, fog lamps, roof rack, running boards, and others.

Opt for the Sequoia Limited and you will enjoy front and rear sonar parking assist, a power rear liftgate with sliding window, 10-way power adjustable driver’s and 4-way power front passenger’s seat (both heated, too), second- and third-row retractable sunshades, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and 20-inch alloy wheels.

The range-topping Platinum edition adds Dynamic Laser Cruise Control, a Blue-Ray rear seat entertainment system with a 9-inch LCD screen, separate rear seat audio, dual wireless headphones, 12-way power adjustable driver’s seat, power seat memory package, second-row heated seats, load-leveling air suspension, and Adaptive Variable Suspension, an electronic damper control system with driver-selectable settings for Comfort, Normal, and Sport.

Depending on the grade, customers can also get the 6.1-inch touchscreen display, SiriusXM satellite radio, USB, AUX, Bluetooth, subscription-free Entune App Suite, Entune Premium Audio with 14 speakers, including a subwoofer, Entune JBL Audio, voice-activated touchscreen, and rearview camera.

The 2017 Sequoia also sports Toyota’s Star Safety System, which includes, besides the ABS and VSC (Vehicle Stability Control), has Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Brake Assist, Traction Control, Smart Stop Technology brake override and, on the 4WD models, an A-TRAC (Active-Traction Control) instead of the previous (non-active) TRAC all-wheel drive.

Power comes from a 5.7-liter i-FORCE V8 with 381 HP (386 PS) and 401 lb-ft (544 Nm) of torque. The V8 can produce 90 percent of torque from as low as 2,200 rpm and enables the Sequoia to tow up to 7,300 lbs (3,311 kg), depending on the model grade and equipment.

    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!

    Is this from the 2000s?

    • Bash

      nailed it!!

    • Status

      It still has a CD player, so yes.

  • Liam

    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
