Expert Quotes:

Sequoia's main controls are large and clearly marked, but many of these smaller buttons are not conveniently placed or identified.
Consumer Guide

a 115-volt AC switch that would allow a passenger to work on a laptop
Road & Track

One neat touch: The Platinum has an optional center-row console that opens 180 degrees to create a tray for passengers and also allows for a flat cargo floor.
Car and Driver

It has Tundra-style audio and navigation controls that are impossible to reach when you're behind the wheel
Edmunds' Inside Line


The Sequoia can span more than $20,000 across its three available models, starting around $43,000 in the base SR5, and climbing from there with the Limited, or touching nearly $65,000 in the loaded Platinum model.

At the top of the lineup is the Sequoia Platinum, which adds Dynamic Laser Cruiser Control, a DVD touch-screen navigation system, and a new Blu-Ray rear entertainment system with a 9-inch LCD screen and two sets of wireless headphones. A 12-way adjustable power driver’s seat, heated second-row seats, and the load-leveling air suspension with three driver-selectable modes are also all included.

Standard on the Platinum grade and available on SR5 and Limited is a new Entune multimedia system that provides access to apps for Bing search, Pandora, and others, providing access to entertainment or information through your smartphone's data connection.

Even at the top of the range there are quite a few dealer- or port-installed upgrades--including examples like remote engine start, upgraded TRD brakes, and a front skid plate. Although the Sequoia is missing most other off-road upgrades (look to the Land Cruiser to see why).

Even the SR5 comes well equipped, which comes with automatic tri-zone air conditioning, an eight-speaker stereo, a towing package, an eight-way power driver’s seat, and a leather-trimmed steering wheel with audio and climate controls.

On the Limited you get an equipment set that rivals many luxury vehicles, with parking sensors, a power rear liftgate, a power folding third-row seat, and 20-inch alloy wheels, all included, as well as JBL Synthesis sound and Bluetooth audio streaming. And the rearview mirror has a built-in backup monitor (without having to add the navigation system); a map light, auto-dimming feature, and compass are built into it, too.

 

 

Conclusion

Toyota's Entune connectivity has made its way into the Sequoia; domestic full-sizers get far more lavish in their top-end trim levels.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
