TrueCar recently released its list of vehicles on the market today, and with the Toyota Sequoia topping this list, it’s easy to see that both consumers and critics are enamored with this all-new generation of full-size SUVs from Toyota. Here are three reasons why you should choose 2023, and two reasons why you might be better off choosing another option.
Pro of the 2023 Toyota Sequoia
#1. The Toyota Sequoia seats up to eight passengers
The 2023 Toyota Sequoia offers seating for up to eight passengers with its three rows of seats. This feature is rarely seen today in most other SUV competitions, which typically accommodate up to seven passengers if three-row seating is offered.
The model comes standard with all-wheel drive, premium off-road suspension, internal bypass coils, remote reservoir rear shocks, and TRD Pro front stabilizer bar.
#3. Incredible towing capacity
Coming in at £9,520, the 2023 Toyota Sequoia has one of the best towing capacities in its class, thanks to its Toyota Tundra chassis and solid rear axle design. Even with this high towing capacity, this Sequoia finds a way to have even better fuel economy than the previous generation model with 20-22 mpg combined.
Cons of the new 2023 Toyota Sequoia
#1. The larger touchscreen is non-standard
The Sequoia is one and it’s extremely disappointing to see that the larger infotainment screen available on the Sequoia can only be found in a higher trim level with a much higher price tag.
It gets an 8-inch touchscreen, which is comically small for a vehicle this size, a Mitsubishi Mirage has a similarly sized touchscreen. Second, you’ll need to upgrade to the Limited trim level, which costs nearly $7,000 more just to get the largest 14-inch touchscreen available for the Sequoia.
#2. Third-row seating can be tight
Given that the 2023 Toyota Sequoia is a truck-based SUV with a solid rear axle, there will be some trade-offs for cargo space in the rear of the vehicle, but that’s to be expected. This SUV still seats eight passengers, but lacks enough legroom for the rearmost passengers.
