2019 Toyota Sequoia Release Date, Price, Redesign, Specs. Toyota unveiled the current Sequoia back at the 2007 Los Angeles Auto Show and released it on the market shortly after. This is likely going to hit the market with the future 2019 Toyota Sequoia which will definitely be an entirely new model. With this model, Toyota will have to compete with cars like the new Expedition which is a far better vehicle than the ongoing Sequoia.
What can we expect from the next Sequoia model? This model was first shown in September 2000.
For the new 2019 model, we would like to see a more aggressive design, new equipment options, and better handling and we think Toyota will deliver. Stay tuned because we expect more new information soon …
2019 Toyota Sequoia Review
The new model of the Sequoia is going to use an entirely new platform
As we said, the new model of the Sequoia is going to use an entirely new platform. This will share its architecture with the new Tundra which is set to hit the showroom’s floor in the near future.
This would be a fully boxed in the steel frame which would be lighter and more structurally sound than that of its predecessor.
We can expect the SUV to boast an entirely new bodywork which will likely be made out of either a mix of steel and aluminum or just from aluminum.
Toyota’s goal would be to decrease the SUV’s total weight by at least 500 pounds. This would allow the car to be more efficient, better to drive and more comfortable.
2019 Toyota Sequoia Engine and Specs
Engine, the SUV might also get a new diesel.
The only available engine with the current Sequoia is a 5.7 liter naturally aspirated V8 with 381 horsepower. This provides plenty of grunt for pretty much anything but it isn’t exactly the most fuel-efficient mill on the market. It looks like the future Sequoia might change all of that.
This might receive a new Lexus-developed 3.5 liter twin-turbo V6. With around 420 horsepower and over 420 lb-ft of torque, this should provide the same type of performance as the V8 while being considerably more efficient.
Engine, the SUV might also get a new diesel. Far this is just a rumor but if Toyota releases a diesel then they will finally have an answer for Ford and their upcoming Expedition.
A hybrid has been in the works for a while. Unlike its predecessor, the car is likely going to be available with an 8 speed automatic only and either rear or all-wheel drive.
2019 Toyota Sequoia Release and Price
Like its predecessor, the upcoming 2019 Toyota Sequoia will likely hit the market around 5 to 7 months after its official unveiling. This is expected to happen in Los Angeles, most likely in 2019.
While it still is quite far from release, it is safe to assume Toyota still has quite a bit of development to do, especially since we haven’t seen any spy shots of the upcoming Sequoia
2019 Toyota Sequoia Redesign
The upcoming 2019 Toyota Sequoia is likely going to feature a sportier look
Most people tend to buy SUVs for their looks. Far this hasn’t really been the case with this model but things could change.
The upcoming 2019 Toyota Sequoia is likely going to feature a sportier look, more similar to what the current Tacoma has to offer.
Expect a hexagonal grille, new slimmer headlights, likely a more muscular body as well as things like a hood scoop and possibly fender flares.
The rear of the SUV should be just as impressive. Here we will likely find a design scheme that will complete the aggressive look of the vehicle.
2019 Toyota Sequoia Interior
We can’t really say the current model is the best looking SUV in its class. While the quality is on par with its rivals, that’s about it. The vertical design found here and the really unusual layout is going to be gone in the future 2019 Toyota Sequoia
In their place, we can expect a far more minimalist approach, more similar to what the Tacoma has to offer. This should make the cabin more airy, easier to use and considerably nicer to look at.
The only real drawback we see with the new car would be the interior space. If the rumors are true then it might feature slightly less space than its predecessor.
