From big trucks to all-electric SUVs and more.
Toyota has been killing it with new models in the past few months, and remains the world's best-selling carmaker by a mile. The all-new Toyota Sequoia is on its way, and the Toyota Tundra Hybrid is also causing quite the ruckus. To create even more hype around its latest creations, Toyota will display an array of its latest vehicles at the 2022 Chicago Auto Show which opens to the public this week, from February 12 to 21 (we'll be there from Wednesday). The carmaker plans to showcase the all-new 2023 Toyota Sequoia, the 2022 Tundra Capstone, and the all-electric bZ4X. What's more, Toyota will let fans take some of the models out on track for a test drive, including the 2022 Tundra daily between 10 am and 9.30 pm.
The all-new 2023 Sequoia will showcase the same new hybrid powertrain system featured in the Tundra, with the twin-turbo V6 hybrid i-Force Max powertrain producing 437 horsepower and 583 lb-ft of torque. This powerplant features a unique motor generator within the bell housing between the engine and 10-speed automatic transmission for increased pulling power. This modern SUV features a body-on-frame chassis, independent front suspension, and a new rack-mounted electronic power steering system for improved steering feel. Optional extras will include a load-leveling rear height control air suspension and Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) for those looking to tow regularly. The new Sequoia can also tow 25 percent more than the outgoing model (up to 9,000 lbs) and will be offered in five different trim levels: SR5, Limited, Platinum, TRD Pro and the Capstone grade.
The new Tundra is bound to catch some eyeballs at the event. The third-generation Tundra is being showcased with two new powertrains, and the Tundra Capstone aims to take things to the next level in terms of luxury and refinement with standard 22-inch wheels, a distinctive grille, and tons of chrome. It also boasts a panoramic moonroof, a 14-inch infotainment display, and a heated leather steering wheel. The Tundra Capstone will have a towing rating of 10,340 pounds.
Finally, Toyota is bringing the new all-electric bZ4X to the Chicago Auto Show. This interesting offering is built on Toyota's new e-TNGA BEV-dedicated platform and offers up to 250 miles of range in front-wheel-drive configuration, and is also offered as an AWD vehicle. This futuristic SUV is set to go on sale in spring 2022. The awesome Tacozilla Tacoma Camper will also be on display, so make sure to stop by Toyota's corner for some seriously cool metal.
