First Look at the Refreshed 2023 Toyota Sequoia TRD Pro

The last time that the Toyota Sequoia was refreshed was 2009.   That’s three or four lifetimes in car talk.   The Sequoia finally gets a well deserved refresh and wow… it looks great. 

Motor1 has a great video look at the new Sequoia.  

The 2023 Toyota Sequoia replaces the current model after 15 years in production and looks super cool.

This new model is offered in several trim levels, including the TRD Pro model that we filmed, in addition to a top-of-the-line Capstone model and Limited. The Sequoia is now hybrid-only with one powertrain that comes standard on all trims. It’s a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 putting out 437 horsepower and 583 pound-feet. When equipped with the right package it can also tow up to 9,000 pounds. We don’t have fuel economy numbers yet but we can expect to vastly improve on the last-gen’s big thirsty V8.

Inside, the Sequoia adopts a lot of its character from the Tundra, with a huge 14-inch central screen that runs the latest software from the company. That means wireless apple car play and android auto, Apple Music integration, and impressive connectivity all around. The rest of the cabin includes nice materials like leather and red accent stitching t complement the TRD Pro badging. There are heated and cooled seats, a heated steering wheel, and a wireless charging pad, among other conveniences.

The new Sequoia goes on sale later this year and will be built in the United States. Pricing will come at a later date, but we can expect to review the car in the coming months.
