The 2012 Sequoia is virtually unchanged from the 2011 model.
Brawny towing capability; smooth, powerful V8 options; generous standard features
The Toyota Sequoia appeals to those who are in need of a serious hauler, whether it be for a trailer or for people. The Sequoia delivers just as much capability with nearly as much style and luxury features as many high-end luxury-brand SUVs, but at a lower price. The Sequoia's interior is spacious and comfortable and surprisingly flexible for people and cargo. Base SR5 models are an especially strong value, starting at $41,000, while fully loaded Platinum models sticker for less than $62,000.
