2020 Toyota Sequoia Review

If you’re searching for a full-size SUV that can handle full-size adventure, the 2020 Toyota Sequoia is calling. Boasting a truck-like, body-on-frame design, it’s one of the few large SUVs with actual off-road capability.

It also is the perfect ride for big families on the go. With seating for eight and a laundry list of standard tech, it can handle daily life around Trevose, Bensalem, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Toyota Sequoia Performance Specs

Toyota Sequoia Performance SpecsFrom the pavement to far off the beaten path, you need an SUV that can deliver comfort and capability. Equipped with a 5.7L V8 engine that generates 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque, the Sequoia meets the challenge.

To balance its hefty frame, the Sequoia uses an independent double-wishbone front and rear suspension. The effect is a smooth ride from front seat to back row. When riding with a full load of people, the adaptive variable suspension lets you adjust ride height on the fly.
