2011 Toyota Sequoia Overview
With its awesome size and immense power, it’s no wonder where the spacious and majestic 2011 Toyota Sequoia full-size SUV got its name.
Saying that the Sequoia is big is a gross understatement. The 2011 Toyota Sequoia is available in three trim levels: SR5, Limited and Platinum and all trims seat up to eight passengers quite comfortably in three rows of seats. The second row slides to create easy access to the power-operated third row (power optional). Engine choices each provide mammoth power and capability: a base 310-horsepower, 4.6-liter i-Force V-8 and a 381-horsepower, 5.7-liter V-8 with 401 pounds-feet of torque that can tow up to 10,000 pounds. The Sequoia also boasts a 381-horsepower, 5.7-liter engine with Flex-fuel capability. All engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and a four-wheel-independent suspension, while an air suspension system with load-leveling is optional.
The 2011 Toyota Sequoia competes with the likes of the Chevrolet Tahoe, Ford Expedition and Nissan Armada, and gets 13-14 mpg in the city and 18-19 mpg on the highway.
Choose between cloth or leather-trimmed front bucket seats with power, and adjustable lumbar control with a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat are also available. Seven-passenger perforated leather-trimmed heated and ventilated front bucket seats are optional. All three trims feature three-zone climate control, high solar-energy absorbing tinted glass, and a power tilt/slide moonroof with sunshade.
Both the Limited and Platinum trims include a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio/climate controls and Bluetooth connectivity. A CD player with integrated XM Satellite Radio, auxiliary input/USB port, and eight speakers are standard. A DVD navigation system (with seven-inch screen), JBL sound system with 14 speakers, XM NavTraffic, four-disc CD changer, and backup monitor are optional on the Limited trim and standard in the Platinum. The same goes for the rear-seat DVD entertainment system with nine-inch LCD screen and dual wireless headphones. The Platinum trim features a new wood grain interior trim, while an on/off switch for the daytime running lights round out the new features for 2011.
When it comes to safety, the 2011 Toyota Sequoia has you covered with eight standard airbags. Driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags, all-row roll-sensing side curtain airbags, and driver/passenger knee airbags are all standard. Antilock brakes with brake assist and electronic brake-force distribution, as well as an electronic stability system with traction control are both standard. Because the Toyota Sequoia is as big as an actual sequoia, front and rear parking sensors are optional.
