The characteristics of the new 2015 Toyota Sequoia SR5 is that the car is able to tow an entire tank on its own and has the room and capability of storing an entire family inside of it. But what does not fit the bill here is how difficult it is to maneuver with it. The car although may it be strong and roomy does not offer great drivability and it will take a lot of skill to tame it and drive it properly, not to mention that it consumes a lot and is quite a thirsty vehicle to maintain.

The new Toyota Sequoia SR5 is an old fashioned type of an SUV vehicle. It is rugged and, has great towing capabilities and is very useful for servicing various family needs. The rivals and the competition have perhaps toned down their capabilities and have gone for a much leaner design as of late, but the Sequoia does not alleviate on its macho appearance and gets back to its fans with a high scale rugged design that it always had.

Just look at the picture to see what the actual potential of the 2015 Toyota Sequoia SR5 is. You can see that it is a no nonsense vehicle and delivers on its promises. It also includes a large cargo space for various utility purposes and an eight-passenger setting appropriate for larger groups of people as well. The price is appropriate for its class and is not that much over the top but you will have to calculate the gas consumption when opting for this vehicle.

The car surely justifies its name as the biggest tree found in the world. The Toyota Sequoia SR5 is big, really big, and has the design based on the Tundra model from which it has borrowed some cues and settings. The wheelbase is 122.0 inches, an increase of 3.9 inches compared to the previous model, and the length is 205.1 inches, which is 1.2 inches compared with the previous year. It also comes with an extra inch in its width and half an inch in its height. But what mostly separates it from the Tundra is that the Sequoia does not come with a boxy shape.
The vehicle is a truck from front to back. It does not appoint any crossover characteristics and certainly does not take any nonsense. The macho design is something that elevates it from the Tundra upon which it is based on and adds a lot more ruggedness to the entire concept of the vehicle. To some it may seem as if it is too muscular, some even say it is freakishly muscular. But the fact is that the design is perfect and everything has been done greatly and the design certainly approves the car’s name and its characteristics.

2015 Toyota Sequoia SR5 Interior

What the interior of the 2015 Toyota Sequoia SR5 offers is excessive room space. It is insane how much room it actually has and how well ordered everything is. Even the third row of seats is very comfortable and room, the second row has only1.1 inches of legroom less than the first row. All of the seats can fold back, even the passenger’s seats, and there is a lot of shoulder space as well. This is perhaps one of the most roomiest and cost comfortable vehicles ever made and offers quite a lot of luxury this way.

The inside is very nicely appointed and brings you high levels of comfort. Although the Platinum and the Limited trims give you leather seats and very nice concept, the SR5 come very well with its cloth seats as well. You will feel very nicely while driving in it and will not just enjoy the space but also the cushiony seats that the inside has.

Do not immediately assume that the Limited and the Platinum versions come with all of the toys, as the SR5 trim has something for you to play with as well. Laser operated cruise control is a fun inclusion within the design and a stellar DVD entertainment system does not back down on its promises as well. Another fun fact is the road leveling rear air suspension that makes the ride smoother and also the newest navigation system.

2015 Toyota Sequoia SR5 Engine

Under the hood, the 2015 Toyota Sequoia SR5 has its work cut out for it. The very strong engine option is one that enables the vehicle to perform its magnificent feats. Equipped with a 5.7-liter V-8 engine, the SR can reach 81 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. It also makes up for some great fuel stats and has better gas mileage numbers than the 4.7 liter engine option. EPA estimates for the four-wheel-drive models are 13 mpg city and 16 highway for the 4.7, and 13 and 18 for the 5.7. The Platinum and the Limited have a stronger engine setup, but the base SR5 is strong enough and useful enough and we estimate that the buyers will certainly mostly go for this option.

2015 Toyota Sequoia SR5 Price

Finally we get down to the price. The 2015 Toyota Sequoia SR5 has a pretty hefty price tag but one that is not that much high for its class. Actually the 40 grand that you will spend for this car are a much better investment than spending it on some other similar vehicles from the same class. Currently, the base MSRP for the vehicle is set at 47,620 USD for owing this kind of a car.
