The aging SUV is about to continue without bigger changes for the next year, as 2019 Toyota Sequoia. This capable machine has been around for years. While the original model was only seven years in production, the current second generation is present for a full decade. Moreover, it looks like it will continue without bigger changes for another few years as well. Still, we have seen few updates during this long production cycle. The last update was just recently, for the 2018-year model. For this occasion, we have seen some interesting novelties, especially in terms of styling, so it is clear that 2019 Sequoia won’t feature bigger changes.
2019 Toyota Sequoia continues in the same way
Considering that a nice amount of novelties was introduced last year, we don’t expect new things for 2019 Toyota Sequoia. The capable SUV got a new grille and front bumper last year, as well as LED lighting. This indicates that styling changes are not expected at the moment.
Same goes with the 2019 Toyota Sequoia interior. We are about to see the same cabin design. Also, we expect to see the same trim level organization, which will include 2019 Toyota Sequoia TRD Sport too. This version has been introduced recently and includes various mechanical modifications compared to base models.
When will Toyota Sequoia be redesigned?
Toyota has been updated this capable SUV recently, so we presume that major changes are not in the company’s plans for next few years. According to some reports, the new generation will most likely come in about two years, as a 2021-year model. Still, consider that some reports even mention model’s discontinuation.
The 2019 Toyota Sequoia will continue with same trim levels in the offer. There four versions of the SUV – SR5, TRD Sport, Limited, and Platinum.
Although the most basic trim, SR5 will come with a load of standard equipment. Some of the most notable pieces are 18-inch wheels, tri-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera. You can also count on things like 6.1-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, USB ports, 8-speaker audio system etc. Finally, this model comes with a bunch of safety systems. Some of these are forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and traffic-adapting cruise control.
The next in the line is a new TRD Sport trim. Besides more standard equipment, this version also comes with several mechanical tweaks. It comes with sport-tuned suspension, bigger 20-inch wheels, and few more things.
The 2019 Toyota Sequoia Limited will be a real comfort-oriented model. There are standard features like 14-speaker audio system, rear-seat entertainment system with Blu-Ray player, as well as things like power-folding and auto-dimming exterior mirrors.
Finally, there is a Platinum trim, which comes with things like ventilated front seats, heated second-row captain’s chairs, a second-row center console, and a power-adjustable steering wheel. It also features adaptive air suspension.
2019 Toyota Sequoia engine
All models use the same 5.7-liter V8 engine. This engine is good for about 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque, which is enough for a 0-60 sprint in about 7 seconds. On the other side, fuel economy goes around 15 mpg in a combined drive.
How much can Toyota Sequoia tow?
This is a pretty capable SUV, which features max towing capacity of 7.500 pounds.
2019 Toyota Sequoia release date and price
When it comes to 2019 Toyota Sequoia release date, we expect to see it in late 2018. The price should remain pretty much the same, which means around 48.000 dollars for the base model.
