2016 Toyota Sequoia

2016 Toyota Sequoia Changes and Review

Check out this review of the 2016 Toyota Sequoia. This vehicle is known for its practicality and towing capabilities. The car is a great family vehicle which offers a comfortable ride and enough comfort inside for the whole family to enjoy. All in all the Toyota Sequoia for 2016 has offered an old-school package which many people enjoyed.

But with the competitors sharpening up their offers and starting to produce better vehicles, particularly Ford, Toyota had to do something about their Sequoia car. The recently seen spy photos were the first approval of Toyota’s idea to come back with a strong design for the 2016.


And as the spy photos haven’t shown us much, after the official unveiling we have been able to see the full potential of the redesigned 2016 Toyota Sequoia.

The redesign of the 2016 Toyota Sequoia actually exemplifies everything which the Sequoia lacked in the past. Something which has been substantially altered for the 2016 Toyota Sequoia is its driving capabilities.

The car drives and handles better than before. Thanks to the new underpinnings and the four-wheel independent suspension, the car rides like a dream. Although riding through the rough patches on the field can upset the comfort and the drive of the car, the handling is way up and the overall feel of the car is much better.

Check out the offered photos of the 2016 Toyota Sequoia and read the review on for more information.

2016 Toyota Sequoia Exterior

The 2016 Toyota Sequoia exterior redesign brings us a big brawny SUV look. The new design has brought us new dimensions of the car which has made the Sequoia perhaps one of the largest vehicles on the road today. This has in turn brought larger interior space and superior comfort than before.

Predominantly the design of the 2016 Toyota Sequoia cabin, and in fact of the whole vehicle, is masculine. Particularly the front part which looks pretty beefy, in fact truck like. But the large front end of the car gives it a centered gravity which cannot be matched by many crossover vehicles.

Great looking and pretty useful as well. Actually, the whole design is quite handsome in whole. It is a very beautiful looking car which showed us that Toyota had a trick up their sleeve when designing the Sequoia.

The particular changes and upgrades to the car’s exterior design include a taller hood, a big and imposing front chrome grille, rippled sheet metal, a high beltline, chromed mirrors and flared fenders. This whole attributes to the brawny and masculine exterior look of the car, and it well should it be as this massive car more than certainly deserves to be imposing and fearsome looking on the road.

Interior of 2016 Toyota Sequoia

The inside of the 2016 Toyota Sequoia actually feels like a high-end full-size pickup. A part of the interior design has been borrowed from the Toyota’s Tundra, particularly the comfort levels which the Sequoia now possesses. Particularly the design of the inside is what the most resembles the Tundra with the now much comfortable materials which are used for the seats.

The center console actually features some matte-metallic plastic trims which go down form the gauge area towards the covering part of the console itself. Many people have already commented that the design of the dash is a bit too much and that it has been overdone.

But actually the dash has been designed in a way that enables functionality while driving, everything is easy to reach as the larger much simpler controls are laid out perfectly and very usefully without distracting the driver from the road.

2016 Toyota Sequoia Engine

Unfortunately, the designers have decided that the 2016 Toyota Sequoia is going to be available only with one trim option and only one engine to choose from. The one which is going to be in play for use is the 5.7-liter V-8 , which his perhaps a prime choice.

The engine is able to achieve a power of 381 horsepower with 401 lb-ft of torque. The specs tell us that the car is perfect for people who have to use this car for towing, IF you use this car as a family vehicle, the things which come in mind that it will be perfect when you decide to do a lot of shopping and need to haul the good home from the store.

There is even an option of using the Tow/Haul mode, which enhances the already high towing capabilities of the 2016 Sequoia from 2.200 rpm to 7.400 pounds. Interestingly, the car has also very good acceleration, which can achieve a number of 6.7 seconds from 0 to 60 mph.
