The 2016 Toyota Sequoia returns to the Toyota SUV lineup for another model year offering the same family-friendly comfort and style as the previous year model but with upgraded technology.
The full-sized SUV encountered no exterior changes from the previous model year. Standard exterior features include running boards, 18-inch alloy wheels, power moonroof, and a rear spoiler with LED center lighting. Also available on the Sequoia is a power liftgate with jam protection, 20-inch diamond-cut-finish alloy wheels, and chrome door handles.
Under the hood, the Sequoia sports a 381-hp, 5.7L V8 mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. It is available in both rear-wheel-drive (RWD) and four-wheel drive (4WD) and offers an available Multi-Mode 4WD dial that allows the driver to switch between RWD and 4WD modes. Both drivetrains provide 13/17 mpg city/highway. The Sequoia features an impressive towing capacity of 7,400 pounds making it ideal for towing anything from boats to campers.
The base model comes standard with 8-passenger seating but captain’s chairs are available and reduce the capacity to 7. A power operated 3rd row is also available for added convenience. Standard technology features include touch-screen display with app compatibility, Bluetooth connectivity, auxiliary jack, and two USB ports. New for 2016, the Sequoia comes equipped with Apple’s Siri Eyes Free capability compatible for iPhones which allows drivers to operate their mobile device with voice commands. The standard Entune Infotainment System can be upgraded with additional functions including HD radio, Yelp reviews, and navigation. Additional available features include integrated navigation, a 14 speaker JBL audio system, and Blu-ray compatible entertainment system.
