OFFICIAL: Get Ready For The All-New Toyota Sequoia

Teaser / 7 Comments

The full-size SUV will be built on the brand's latest platform.

The next-generation Toyota Sequoia will be making an official debut on January 25. The company hasn't dropped many details regarding the highly anticipated full-size SUV but we can expect it to introduce a plethora of new technologies as well as the much-needed TNGA-F chassis. If true, this model will evolve to share its bones with the Toyota Tundra, recently departed Land Cruiser 300, and Lexus LX.

Using theTNGA-F platform could mean that the upcoming Sequoia will maintain a body-on-frame structure but ditch its rear double-wishbone axle for a multilink setup. On the higher-spec Tundra and LC300, this system benefits from a linear solenoid adaptive variable suspension for enhanced capability and comfort. This is likely to be the same case on this SUV.

There's not much that has been said about the design, and the two teaser images provided to us are not too revealing. We can assume that the SUV will maintain a boxy body shape with a set of modern cues and lines penned throughout. This includes the sharp winglet applied to the rear door and quarter panel and a set of L-shaped taillights.

The first teaser displays a series of black trimmings applied to the window surrounds and door handle but on this latest image, we see that the red unit boasts a satin silver shade for the trim across the hatch and the Sequoia badging. The anti-scuff plating at the entry of the trunk possesses a graphite-like shade while the lower part of the bumper features the aforementioned black finish. Given that the lighting is notably dim in both images, these characteristics could be a bit skewed.

As for powertrains, the current Sequoia is sold with the brand's naturally aspirated 5.6-liter V8 which produces 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque sent to the tarmac via a 4x4 system and six-speed automatic. Keeping in line with TNGA-F products, we can expect this to be exchanged for the company's V35A-FTS twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter gasoline option which delivers 389 hp.

A hybrid system that is supported by the brand's permanent magnet synchronous motor and 1.87 kWh battery pack offers this engine an increased 437 hp power output. The sole transmission option made available to this architecture so far has been the AWR10L65 ECTi direct shift 10-speed automatic, so we are likely to see this added to the Sequoia as well.
